attachment for swifty pushchair

kez17kez17 Member Posts: 5
hi all, i hope someone can help! ive got a 3 and a half yr old boy who is unable to walk and weve jst bought a swifty pushchair which is fantastic. i also have a 15month old. i bought the 'buggypod' which attaches onto the side of the pushchair, i felt that it wasnt very stable and felt quite nervous when i road tested it up and down my road. it also made the whole pushchair too wide to fit thro the door. i was wondering if anyonehas found a soloution or a 'buggypod' that fits onto the back of pushchair? any help would be appreciated as im feeling stuck in the house when noone else is about!! thankyou!

    my friend used the buggypod on the side of a wheelchair. If on correctly it was stable - but yes it did make the chair wide.

    Only other cheap options I could suggest is wearing a hip baby carrier - possibly with a hippychick support and/or using a buggyboard fitted at the back which yr 15mo would stand on. Use reins with it. 15 months is rather young for this tho - if you could do that in combination with hip carrier it could work

    Other than that you could try and get funding for SN tandem buggy - the Tom Cross Tandem looks good

    I managed with the Phil n Teds when in your position. My SN older child was v small tho. I think as standard they do up to 4 yrs. You could prob pick one up cheaply second hand on ebay

    me and my husband are both tall. my sn son is in 4-5 clothes,(we tried him in a phil n teds but hes too tall for it) my 15month old is in 2-3 clothes.(and quite heavy lol) she is also a bottom shuffler and has only jst started cruising. the buggy board would be ideal in a few months. thankyou for your help thou
