It's just that my nanny really likes the Vista. I have a Maclaren XT but it lives in the car.

Depending on your financial situation I would use the Vista for a newborn and get a stroller for the 2 year old.

Something you can then use later with the baby. Maclaren Quest for example.

Obv if money is no object then go for a Bee, but it seems unnecessary when you have a great newborn pram already.

You can almost never go wrong with a bee. Keep it or sell it, you will have the choice grin

Yes , I definitely think we'll get the Nipper.

Hi Ihateparties

Yes I can but I am thinking of simultaneous outings. When the baby is bigger I can use the rumbleseat on the Vista and sometimes will be able to use the buggy board. It's more in the really early days that I thought of getting another. I thought that as the Bee is reasonably marketable I could sell it on and not have it cluttering up my house.

Can the you not also use the vista for the newborn.. unless of course you're talking about simultaneous outings? I saw carrycots for the double nipper this weekend, which I think is a big improvement on its suitability for siblings. They should be available by the time you will need one.

I am due to have DC2 in October. I have a DS who will be two.

I am planning on getting a double for when I want to take them out. However, there will be times that I or the nanny want to take DS out by himself (so we'll keep the Vista).

I am also going to have a maternity nurse for 8 weeks and I think she'll find a double a bit silly for walking a newborn. I was thinking of getting a Bee for when she wants to take the child out as I could sell it on EBay when we didn't need it anymore.

I love the Donkey but it looks like an arse to fold. So would probably get the Nipper Out N About double.

We can spend some money (not infinite) but don't want to clutter the house up with infinite buggies. I thought the Bee seems to fold the best.

Is this a sensible plan? Or have I missed something?
