A double pram for a 1yo and a 4mo (+ a Cybex Cloud Z car seat), pre-owned is welcome

Kedmo • 21 Jan 2024

Hi Eli,

I am looking to buy a double pram for April when our second child is due. Our little girl will be 2 years and 4 months by then. We have the Cybex Cloud z car seat which we will use again for our second, so I’m just wondering which double prams are compatible with this car seat please? We will be looking to buy second hand as hopefully we won’t need it for too long.

Heya, Kedmo,

I personally would strongly recommend a side-by-side in the case with an older and younger child. I mean, the tandems are normally very limited, space in the seat-wise, and a 2 years old could really feel tight in it rather quickly. Not even talking about the push which is much worse with a tandem and such a weight imbalance (especially with popping up curbs).

My choice, especially with a pre-owned model would be a double Baby Joggger or a Valco Baby. Both should have an option for Cymex/Mai-Cosi adapters, but be sure to check the availability before buying. Apart from that, a Mountain Buggy could also work. From tandems, only the Phil&Teds brand comes to mind that would be practical enough in such a situation.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
