    Are they any good as a travel pram? Do they fold up well, recline etc?

    Sold out online, so no click and collect.
    All my local stores say low stock (which is often the code word for sold out.)

    Seems expensive. Can’t the lazy things just walk?

      not until they are 12 yrs old it seems, I've seen parents wheeling school age kids in strollers, and then they wonder why their kids turn out lazy, or fat.

        12 years, you say? I should have gotten off the pram like 15 years ago then. Asking mum to stop pushing my pram as I type this…

    Has anyone seen a bargain for a double pram (like one that holds a newborn and a toddler in one)?

    •  

      How old is the toddler? Under 3?

        He will be 3 in September next year. The newborn will be born in January next year. Haha

          Ok. Then yes, you do need a dual pram. Mine was 3.5 when new born came along, isn't really required at that age, but can easily sit in the foot area of the pram (or on an attached skateboard) by then.

      Guessing you can't add on a second seat or even a skatebaord style seat to your current pram? May need to go with a bassinet and seat combo but they can be pretty expensive! The Evenflo Sync2 from Baby Bunting is probably the cheapest option at $399 (rrp is $499) for pram/stroller and second seat but no idea how versatile/suitable it will be.

        Unfortunately not. Was hoping to get something cheaper. Budget is pretty tight. Fingers crossed for Christmas sales

          I find buying a good brand second hand is a very good option. Durability is much better in the more premium brands which are all made with aluminium frames.

          If budget is tight, then Britax strider compact is best bang for buck (heavy double decker style). Baby jogger City select best all rounder (both seats are identical) (heavy tandem style). Uppababy vista is very practical but second seat is small (light tandem style). Bugaboo donkey is unique and nice brand and has best resell value (light expanding side to side style).

          Buying a pram is like buying a car. The prams that offer 2-3 year warranties generally have better build quality.

          There are many other pros/cons but I'm too lazy to list it all

            @MountFranklin: Yes we bought the baby jogger city select lux for a double pram as it had more seat combinations and supports a bigger weight for the older child. 20% off from baby bunting so approx $1000 and another $100 for a bench seat. Second hand.they can be had for approx $700, or less for older versions.

            Looked at the skateboards but they make it awkward for mum when pushing the pram

          Definately buy second hand, so many good quality prams half price or lower on gumtree. I used the mountain buggy duet with my two kids but depends what you use it for to what pram you'll need.So many people have the city select it would be easy to find second hand
