Finding the best double stroller
Before we had our first child, I decided I would be responsible for researching and buying all the necessary baby products and nursery furniture.  The first thing I sorted out was a buggy and I had no idea how many different varieties there were on the market. Anyway, after some extensive research and road testing, I finally selected the one I thought would be ideal.

Fast forward eighteen months and our second child is about to be born. I now have to venture into the world of the double buggy. At first, I was disappointed with the choice there was available, but one thing I knew for sure was I didn’t want one where the baby is seated underneath the older child. I understand this keeps the buggy narrow, but it just looks like you’re putting your baby in the shopping storage area. Taking this into account it meant I was looking for a side by side design. Some of them are way too big and would involve having to buy a new car just to fit in the boot. I was struggling to make a decision, as nothing seemed right.

A week or so later, my wife and I attended the Baby Show in London and this was the first time we saw the Bumbleride’s Indie Twin buggy. It caught my eye because it looked great; stylish, colourful and a decent size. I went straight over to the demo model, strapped my son into it and pushed it around the exhibition hall. It was sturdy without being too heavy, easy to manoeuvre and a comfortable ride. Also, as a dad, I didn’t feel self-conscious pushing it around because it’s easily one of the coolest buggies available. After that short demo my mind was made up and I got in touch with the company and got one on order.

When it arrived I immediately put it together in the front room and put my son into it. We were a couple of weeks away from the arrival of our second child, but I wanted to test drive it straightaway. I then panicked because I was convinced it wouldn’t fit through the doors in my house. I needn’t have worried as it fitted through perfectly, something that wouldn’t have happened with other double buggies. I couldn’t have been happier and my son loved riding around in it too. The real test will come when our daughter finally arrives.

    You’ll Love it! Your story is very similar to ours other, than we have 20 months between youngest son and daughter who is now five weeks. For me it was a little shock to push the first time as it is a little heavier than a single, but I had only given birth a few days before and think anything would have felt this way. Now I am so impressed with how light it is to push, the turning circle is fantastic.The basket underneath is big enough for a changing bag full of stuff for both babies and shopping and it is so stable. Not to mention how lovely it looks. I’m so pleased I went to that baby show as I am super impressed with this Buggy. So is my son as he can’t wait to get in it when we go out!
