If you are expecting your second baby, then you will probably be asking yourself what’s the best way to get around with two children in tow? The double buggy was the traditional answer to this age-old question, but it might not be the most convenient option….
Introducing the BuggyBoard®
If you haven’t heard of a BuggyBoard® before, it’s a handy little step that fits on the back of a single buggy so your toddler can ride along behind your baby and step down when they want to walk. It is perfect for children who are walking and up until they are around 4 years old. The Lascal BuggyBoard® even has a handy seat accessory which can click on too for when their legs get tired.
The universal design clips on to any buggy so you don’t need to buy a new buggy when your second baby arrives. Your can clip it up when it isn’t in use, so you have the convenience of a normal single buggy that converts when you need it to accommodate both children, but you won’t be forced to kart around a large double buggy all the time.
Parents often tell us that their double buggy is troublesome when they are out and about, fitting through shop doorways, navigating narrow footpaths, making your way along crowded pavements. All these situations and more can prove tricky with a double buggy, particularly if you have a side-by-side design.
In contrast, a BuggyBoard® fits in line with your single buggy so your overall footprint is the same. You can fit through any doorway, along any footpath and crowded pavements are a breeze. Your toddler is kept safe and secure inside your arms and when you come to an interesting place to stop, they can simply hop down and explore so it’s perfect for days out.
The Lascal BuggyBoard® is an ideal travel companion as its far easier to pack and carry with you than a double buggy and will take up less room in the car. Even if you choose to have a double buggy at home, you might prefer the convenience of the BuggyBoard® for holidays.
Empowering little ones
When your new baby arrives, it is normal for your toddler to feel overlooked sometimes. This may be exaggerated if you have a double buggy where the older child sits behind the younger sibling who then blocks their view.
The Lascal BuggyBoard® offers them a ‘grown up’ way to travel and will empower them and help them feel special because they won’t need to sit in the buggy anymore. You can talk to them about being a ‘big girl’ or a ‘big boy’ and that means they get to ride on their board instead of in the buggy where the baby goes.
The position of the BuggyBoard® also offers a unique bonding opportunity to your older child because they will be looking down on the baby in their carrycot as they ride on the BuggyBoard® behind. They can see the baby and interact with it but because they are closer to you than the baby, they won’t feel pushed aside and will be nestled safely in between you both.
