Hi everyone, wondering if anyone on here can help me out or at least point me in the right direction. We have twins just coming up on 3 yrs who both have CP, spastic diplegia & our Physio has told us that the pushchair we have is not giving them enough support. It is one on a special needs site but it just doesn't keep them seated with enough support & their legs are all over the place in it. We've had an appointment with occupational therapy who basically scratched their heads & admitted they didn't know what they could offer & we have searched the web without much success. All of the ones we can find assume one child is disabled & the other not. The other thing is that it must be accessible for doorways as it's usually a solo trip for either me or my wife & we need to get in & out of shops/doorways etc. We don't drive so rely on the pushchair a lot for any independence. Surely we can't be the only people in this situation so there must be something out there? Any advice or links greatly appreciated!
