Double Pushchairs – Which One ???

With the Bubba’s growing quickly and both Mr Innocent Charmer and I returning to work this month it means we must get a double pushchair.

We do have the Cosatto Supa Dupa which is great for a quick trip round town, but we live in the middle of the country and with the babies growing quickly we need a more heavy-duty pushchair as opposed to a stroller.

But for the 1st time when it comes to Pushchairs I am at a loss, I am a self-confessed Pushchair addict, they have replaced my handbag/shoe fetish, with 3 Stokkes and the Cosatto I am a lucky girl but we need something that can allow us to go out as family of 5.

Grayson is obviously still in a special needs pushchair and will be for many years to come, we tried the Buggy Board route with Addison, nope she hates it, then I tried baby wearing which is fab for short periods of time but then my back aches, we headed off to The Baby Show last week hoping I would finally choose one, the Hubby and I are having it as our Christmas Present to one another  – but I am still no wiser.

I shall tell you the ones I looked at but I am after any suggestions, I shall also put below my preferences.
