Bye Bye Buggy
I’ve had a lot of different buggies over the last few years, singles, doubles, big ones and small ones.
They’ve all been great, I’ve never really found one that I didn’t like, but by far my favourite has been the Obaby Zoom. Having a longer design rather than a side by side layout, it is different to push, the weight distribution takes some getting used to, but it’s so much easier to get through doorways and the seats are really spacious and comfy. I bought it second hand from a lady on Facebok and it came with two toddler seats and a carrycot, the seats come off and turn around to be forward or rear facing, plus the basket underneath is huge! You can fit so much shopping in, it’s amazing.
I had it for almost a year, so you can imagine my heartbreak when Mikey’s toddler seat snapped! It was due to being put away at an awkward angle and then being jumped on by Mikey. So I contacted Obaby and they confirmed they don’t make this design of seat anymore, so I looked on Ebay, Gumtree and Preloved it came up with nothing, there were plenty of the prams for sale but no toddler seats alone.
Safety First Double Stroller
This buggy is just amazing and so handy, I’m devastated it just isn’t practical longterm for us now, I still have the carrycot and one toddler seat, so I can ferry Nicole and Mikey about, but for longer walks up to an hour to town, then walking around and back I can’t expect Jack to walk all that way and to be honest if I wanted to actually get somewhere on time it wasn’t practical. So I decided to look for something new, I scrolled through triple buggies but nothing appealed to me, so I’ve settled on this cute one that seems to fold up really easy, it’s the Safety First Double Stroller:
So it won’t be any different to when I go out on my own with all three, I’ll have Nicole in my Ama Wrap and the boys both in the buggy. I’m excited to start with a new buggy and Jack’s extremely excited to see it, but I will be sad to see my Obaby go, I can still sell it on because it’s perfectly good for a toddler and newborn.
Hopefully I’ll make fond memories with our new buggy, it comes tomorrow so I’ll post pictures when it’s here!
