PRAMS FOR TWINS

Hi Girls

Started looking around for prams, wanted one with carry cots having great difficultlies getting one as they won't fit through my front door or gate of the house. Seen a nice one yesterday 3 wheeler nipper will only just fit.

Have anyone else had problems?

Where have you got yours from?

Love Jessie xxxx

RE: Prams

Hi Jessie,

I'm a twin mummy & have the nippa double & it's fab! the best one I would say & most twin mummy's have this, first wheels is nice but seem a little bulky but it's nice that you can see your babies & the carrycots are nice for the first few months, but expensive!

The nippa is 77cm wide & fits through most doorways & most shops, it just fits through my front door, I got mine from kiddicare.com, much cheaper than pram shops.

hope that helps.

Hi Jessie,

For the first few months I really wanted something like a proper pram, so bought a second hand one from ebay (£50, pic below). I love it but like a lot of traditional prams it weighs a ton so I know I may not use it so much when I'm using the car on my own - more for daily walks around the block or down to the local shops, or until the novelty has worn off and practicality rules! I've bought a matress for it so it will double as their downstairs day bed for a couple of months too (saved buying moses baskets). It's the narrowest twin pram I could find - 76cm, so will fit though most doorways -though unfortunately not ours :(

For more long term use I got the mamas and papas twin aria (£200), as a few friends have reccomended it and it's also has good reviews on most twin boards I've seen. It's a stroller so is very light but is suitable from birth, its 76cm agian so fits through most doorways - but still not mine! Also fits in the back of our small car which was a factor for us and the way it folds flat suits us too.

http://www.mamasandpapas.co.uk/product-I00000044/type-i

We're hoping to use baby carriers a lot too so I may end up getting a cheap second hand single stroller to combine with the baby carrier (at least then I may be able to get our front door!). I think we're going to need a bigger house for all the transport!

happy shopping!

All i can say is just measure the pram because mine stated "fits throught standered doorways" and you guessed it it, it dont!!!!
I guess welsh standereds are different!!!!

I have the Twin city from mother care with the removable beds and seperate chairs. ok it wont fit through my inside doors but its fantastic in everyother way, the cot bed parts I still use on hot days and my boys are 8mths and ive used it as overnight bed when i ve been away, boys slept really well in it. its great to be able to turn them round, face you, face away whatever you choose.

My mum has the Mclaren twin buggy and that good to think its £135ish so great value for money. but a bit cummberson to wheel about.

Happy shopping,

They are brilliant when they are first born as the pram is fab, they are a bit hard to get round if there are old shops with narrower doors and some old car park lifts aren't big enough. I use mine now to go on nice long walks with the dog as it's better at off roading a bit. For around the shops I use the mamas and papas twin pulse. as I can just chuck it in the back of the car and it's really light and easy. However Seb still doesn't sit great in that so I wouldn't advise the pulse for newborns xxxxx

I'm the same, around old shops they're not so good and a pain getting in and out the car but for walks they are FAB!!! My 2 still dont sit well in the umbrella buggies - we have a mclaren Red one but still nedd padded out with blankets as they slide down to the bottom and get really uncomfy but sits fabulously in the city twin. If I'm going out for a while I def take it.

I think there is a clip you lift or press and the wheels must be straight to lock in, if that makes sense x x

Hi
depends where you live -
we are in the sticks - so the 3 wheeler nipper is ideal -

at 9 KG iit is very light - and it collapse down to fit inthe boot -

The nipper and the Jane twin are very popular - and can be used form Birth -

Suggest Ebay - or Pop onto TAMBA site and check out the ads -

Happy pram hunting.

I have the first wheels city twin but to be honest now I use my mamas and papas pulse stroller when around town as it's much smaller but they dont sit in it very well, wish i'd gone for a tandem as it is a nightmare to get around. The first wheels is great when we are walking around and we know we arent going in any shops iykwim. xxx

I have 1st wheels like Lulu, If you choose an inline pram check the leg gap for child in rear seat on some prams its tiny and as they grow & want to move and kick there legs more they can't & it can be a bit cramped, my mum bought a cheap one behind other pram, M used to kick J and pinch his hat :snigger: x x

Hi Twinkle
I have the Leebruss Premier Twin as my main pram - it's a side by side quite traditional looking pram with springy chassis but it is quite large so no good for shopping or putting in the boot of car -gorg pram tho but I need to store it in the garage as cant fit it through my door X(

I have the Cossatto You 2 twin stroller for the car and shopping days- this is fab, very lightweight and has a one handed fold- comes with muffs, head huggers and bottle bags etc - def worth checking out.

Re car seats, I have the Maxi-cosi cabriofix in Carribean night colour. These are fab and they have a sunshade attached, head huggers - the lot. We got the isofix bases fixed in my car by Halfords - well worth the money - these are a absolute godsend and I couldn't do without them - the carseat just clicks in - can't praise them enough.

I'm thinking about getting the Out n About for my mums house but need to have a look at it first.

Happy shopping x

Snap ... I think it's great ...Quite cheap too

Only thing ... My son is, shall we say ... stocky :snigger: and he barely fits in it anymore, and turning it is quite difficult, but thats puerly cos of the weight of the babies. The pushchair itself is relatively light ... and very cute ;)

Kirsty -I just thought the other day. I really don't think I'm going to get much wear out of it when the twins get bigger. I thinks its a great stroller but do think its quite femur and when I have 2 quite largeish toddlers swinging their legs in it I really dont think its going to last out. You're right - it's very cute tho.

We went looking for twin buggies, ended up in the pram shop and lady said she has twins and used the mcclaren twin tecno from birth. I liked the i candy but it was much to heavy to be lifting in and out of car. think we might go for the mcclaren.

The Nipper 360 is great. It's good for both country walking and manouvering around shops.

I've done a bit of research.....the Zoom although it looks fab is VERY long so would prob be hard to get up kerbs etc. Its a bit like a limo :P I'm now thinking of going for the EasyWalker Duo. Anyone got that? I think we'd go for the carrycots with it for the 1st 6 months

I liked the look of the EasiWalker Duo but it wouldnt go through our door... Our door is not very wide though.

I too have gone for the Jane Powertwin...

The Easiwalker Duo you could fit the 2 carseats to it and the babies were sort of side by side....but if using normally, they were deffo side by side...Its not cheap either but do believe its cheaper than the mountain buggy.

My advice would be to go to a shop that has alot of them so you can test them out. As what works for one person may not work for another.

Seemingly the Easiwalker is not as long as the mountain buggy and can fit into a Golf! - just something i read.

Good luck anyway

Sa-leanne i liked that one too but doors are too small unfortunately. been looking again and think im going to go for the Easywalker duo. If you join Tamba you get 10% off certain sites, so that will help my parents a wee bit :snigger: Twins UK is a good site, and i can get the whole package there. Going to wait for my 20week scan and then get it ordered. i might find something else in the meantime :happy:

Hi girls, yes Elmo is right, I am a pramaholic :D

I have the Icandy pear, the Leebruss Premier twin which is the same style as the Lux Babystyle twin, the Urban Detour Twin and the The Cosatto You2 Twin stroller.

I love the Icandy pear for shopping as it takes my Maxi cosi carseats and goes through shop doorways.

My big Leebruss pram, I use for big walks and its great as I can have them both side by side and facing although its really heavy to push and quite bulky and I get comments like " have you seen the size of that pram" and "how many babies you got in there" errr 10 :D Also the tyres need blowing up quite regularly and I've had 2 punctures which is a bit crap as the tyre just completely deflates and the pram goes lop sided. All in all a lovley pram to look at but one I probably wouldnt buy again as its too bulky.

The Urban Detour one I use very rarely but its dead easy to push and very light and my stroller I use now and again for shopping trips and will be taking this one when we go abroad.

I know Jane April off here who has twin girls has the Icandy pear and recently purchased the First Wheels but sold it pretty much straight away as she said it was really hard to fit through doorways etc, a bit like my big pram.

Luckily I have a double garage to store them all in or dont think I'd ever get out my house for puschairs.

Happy pram shopping ladies.

OMG lexie, you are a pram-a-holic :snigger:

i live in an ex-council 2 bedroomed house, and there is no room whatsoever. have a wee cupboard at front door, but prams would have to be folded to go into it. X( carrycots are going to be used through the day for downstairs.

its a nightmare where i come from, a wee place near John O Groats, so Inverness is 2hours away and there aint that much selection there, so i hear (going looking when i get my 20wk scan). its all online shopping for me, hence the post asking for opinions.

Andrea def dont go for the big side by siders then cause they are huge. Looks like a tandem would be the best choice for you. The Icandy is nice, fits though doorways easily and fits in my boot no problem.

Its so hard with twin prams as they always look so big and bulky and like you say you dont want to be lifing them in and out the door all the time. Space is also a massive issue. My carrycots fitted inside my big pram so I would keep the carrycots in the house and get them wrapped up in their carrycots them I would just pop them straight out in the pram bit in the garage - same when I came home, I would just lift the carrycots straight out.

I've got the nipper 360 and can't wait to get it out properly. No pram was ever gonna fit through my ricketey old door due to having a second door opening the other way imediatltly as you step inside, couldn't even get my friends single in and to be honest I'm struggling to get in their myself now!!! My criteria was a light weight, off roader that could fit in my fiesta, the Nipper fitted all my criteria and I even managed to get paw print cosy toes! I was given a twin Aria as well but to be honest I'm not to keen although it will be good as a second pushchair!
