    Default Just found out...

    Hi yesterday I found out I'm having TWINS... I'm almost out of the shock stage.

    this morning i thought i would do some research on prams.

    I have a 10 month old son who will be 16 months when the babies come.
    My question i put to you all is - what pram do you think is best for twins and a baby who will need to sleep if we have to go out? I was thinking the Valco double with toddler seat and if Ike needs to sleep i could carry one of the babies in a ergo carrier.

    what do you think????

    hey there congrats on your twins
    best advice is to join your local AMBA group as they are a wealth of knowledge from 'those in the know'. Most girls with a toddler and newborn twins go for either the valco with a toddler seat or the Fitnesswise with a toddler seat. There is a new triplet pram out recently which is a twin pram and the third baby is on the hood of the pram. If you look up the AMBA website, it is advertised there and there is pics!
    IF you want more info about anything- please PM me!
    good luck and let the fun begin!

    Kristy - there are currently only TWO twin prams on the market (as far as I can find!) that take a toddler seat. One is the Valco the other is called the Adventure Buggy. It's made by the adventure buggy company. If you google that, their website will come up and you will be able to see some pics. The adventure buggy has a more comfy looking toddler seat, I think. Although I haven't seen one iRL yet - just pics online. They are the ones that have a new triplet pram out too so worth checking out. The toddler seat is up high - kind of on the handlebar so the toddler faces you.
    I am still deciding between the two. Beware though - they are both super spendy! The new valco is about $1000 including the toddler seat and the adventure buggy is about the same (although you can get deals through AMBA). Remember whatever you buy, to tell the store attendant you are having twins - most baby stores give 10% off if you mention you're having twins.

    HTH!!

    The is an adventure run about that you can put twins in their seats and one or two other toddlers on the hood in proper seats - it is advertised on the AMBA web site so have a look- its also new to Australia

    Thanks

    I decided on the Adventure buggy. it cost a bit more but i think it is the better one.

    I was watching a lady struggle with and curse the Valco one and to be honest its so huge even whhen folded and a lot heavier. and my son wouldn't be able to nap in it.
    at least with the new reclining todler seat on the adventure buggy i can put my older son or a baby on the top.

    thanks for all your help
