HI my daughter is due her second baby very soon and we went for the 'icandy peach blossom' we find it very good to push and it is not very long so great in shops. My Grandson is in it now and then the baby will go in the back in a carrycot or car seat then on the seat that comes with the pram. We found the pram in 'Preloved' at a good price and in very good condition. Hope this helps x

Hello. There was a 20 month gap between my two and we bought a Phil and Teds buggy which was about 10.5 kg. The advantage of this one is the "two deck" design with one child in front and the other underneath. The bottom can take a little cocoon where baby lies flat and you can then change it for an extra seat as the child gets bigger. Good if you need to go on buses or public transport a lot. Good luck.

Baby jogger city mini double- i have twins and a 3 year old. The 3 year old is able to sit comfortably in the seat but generally I use it for my twins with 2 baby jogger carrycots although the buggy is suitable from birth. Its the narrowest side by side on the market so both kids can see out no problem and is super lightweight and very light and easy to push. I would completely recommend it. :)

I use the baby jogger city select. There's a 20 month gap between my two girls and found it to be a great and sturdy buggy (my older ine is very active!) I hear good things about the iCandy as well. I would suggest you go and try those buggies in person in a shop and push it around because you might not like the way it moves ect then buy it online at a great price. I got my buggy for 300 whule mothercare was selling it for nearly 700! Good luck!

I have 18 months between my oldest two and bought a combi we2. Its a side-by-side double but folds very small and is lightweight. the two sections are independent of each other. This was 8 years ago, so am not sure about all the newer models.

I have an 18 month old and 3 month old. I second the earlier recommendation for a Baby Jogger city mini double. I wanted a side by side model, and as well as being the narrowest on the market, it is incredibly easy to fold/unfold. Plus it's super easy to steer. I looked at the Out n About but preferred the separate sunshades on the Baby Jogger (particularly useful when baby is asleep but toddler wants to look around).

Baby Jogger City Mini Double GT 2012 - I've just ordered this from Pramworld UK. It is the updated version of the Baby Jogger City Mini Double. It's very lightweight, is side by side by better manoeuvrability, easy access the storage basket underneath, adjustable handle and fully reclining. You can also buy lots of extras including carrycot and carseat adapters. I have an 18 month old and baby number 2 is due May. I have also have 2 single Bugaboos (Cameleon and the Bee)and decided against the Donkey Bugaboo Double as it was double the Baby JOgger City Mini GT 2012.

Graco quattro duo tour tandem - best double pram ever! I am selling mine as no longer need it - see eBay. It was invaluable for me as my sons are 15 months apart.

We had the phil and teds but my younger son hated being in the lower seat so had to sell.

Hi I have a third hand Out n About Nipper Instep (now replaced by 360) double. It is wonderful, light and all terrain - regularly taken over rocky paths and beaches and up and down a flight of steps to my flat. Have used for my twins since they were born. It is a side by side model and fits through most doorways.

I have twin girls & I researched forever to find the perfect buggy for two - I went for a Baby Jogger - style City select that is a single buggy with a simple adaptor on it to hold a second baby car seat or full buggy seat or even a bassinet - it can be for two newborns upwards or different aged children - the great thing is you can have both seats either facing you - one child is never under another - or they can both face each other, or both face the front - its amazing & everybody comments on how wonderful it is when I got out on a daily basis for our walks, I honestly couldnt do without it & I love it! It svery light to & folds to nothing like an ironing board does & is so simple to erect & put away you don't need a degree like some buggies I looked at! Hope this helps - they sell them everywhere now - John Lewis, Mothercare, but have their own website so definitely worth a look!

Hope this helps.

I HATE them double decker buggys its like sticking your child in the basket! would hate to be the child stuck at the bottom trying to see whats going on! I would recommend cosatto double buggys. ive the "hello dolly" for my girls who are 12months apart. they have a great range of practical and funky lightweight buggys (suitable from birth) and have a 4year guarantee, they come with head huggers, cosy toes, raincovers ect. I live in the city and would use the pram alot. its easy to get on and off the bus, it folds easy and fits into every car and taxi. ive never has any problems fitting down the shops aisles, Im taken it on holiday this year, cant live without it! gd luck x

i have 20 month gap, i got the britax b dual tandem. its goos as can have eldest at top or bottom. and child isnt as closed in than the phil n teds. it can be folded with both seats attached. car seat can be at the top or the bottom. there are 22 configurations. it has puncture resistant tyres with no air, so dont get punctures like the phil and teds. its 4 wheeler which i prefer to a 3 wheeler. my 20 month daughter wouldnt fit into the icandy, unless the hood was off but you need the hood on to be able to attach the raincover, they have made the seats far too small. i must admit tough, the city joggers do look nice and i wish now i had got one i just worry about fitting threw doors ect. lol. xx

Ive had a phil and teds and both mine (13 month gap) hated the bottom seat so got a cosatto side by side, the polka dog design and they love being next to each other, only now noticing im having problems fitting through some shops and doorways so ive got a Jane Powertwin and its great, can fit everywhere, light weight, both kids love it, lovely to push, cant fault it, good luck!

I'd recommend a city select baby jogger. They're so easy to fold away and have so many different combinations of car seat/pram/push chair. I have one and i'm really impressed with the clever design

Hi I have 10 month old twin girls and I woul recommend the city select jogger. I love it. Its lightweight and not a side by side so you can move around the shops quite easily. The best thing about this is you can buy adaptors roughly around 25 pounds and you can use this to carry the car seat which suits the new born and you add the seat which suits the 18month old on. You can also put the seats in any position, facing you, facing out or facing into each other. I would recommend you go out and have a look at it. I know mothercare sell it but you would get it cheaper online but mothercare do price match for you. My sister is due her first child in 5 wks time and she also went for the city select jogger as she plans on having two babies close together and my pram would be ideal for that. Hope this helps.

Absolutely agree,hate idea of 'double decker',seen kids in them and cannot say they look happy in them,...
I had mine two years ago(in 2002),22 months apart, and the best buggy then (for us) was Garco Duo Rider.....Perfect,light,separate seats,huuuge shopping basket....I just was not so keen on the canopy as was really thin and not extremely sading....I really love the ones on Baby Jogger,looks great and very comfy.....Wish I could have baby again.....

Definitely recommend the baby jogger city select too. I gives you the ultimate flexibility in that if you only need the buggy for one child you're not pushing around an empty seat. All doubles can be quite heavy as they have to withstand alot of weight but this one is not unmanageable but is definitely tough. Got big shopping basket too so really helpful when you've gotta pop to the shops! Look on ebay for a second hand one though. Many people buy theirs then sell them on after only a couple of months so you can get really good buggies hugely reduced. Got mine for nearly half price :-)
