i have an icandy pear which i completely love and cant recomend enough, but i walk everywhere, dont own a car, so my buggy was a big investment, i love having them both face me both can fully recline, attach a carseat and a carrycot if you wish, brilliant basket and an adjustable handle and its all on a single frame so no problem fitting anywhere!! also goes into a parent facing single!
mumabear will appear soon shes in love with her p+t and can tell you more about that

my 2yr olds still ok in it and hes a bit above average, i do know that the seat size is a problem for a lot of toddlers though,
if you needed a carseat to attach for baby, theres the new peach which has a larger toddler seat, it doesnt parent face in double though.

main seat for peach, so toddler in double and the one used for single mode is W42 x H89
ive tried ds in a peach and the seats a far better size, only a cm or so smaller than mothercare mychoice is that helps for comparison!

Hi Karen,it's Rachel,aka mummabear!!! Yeah Laura was right,I'm in love with my P&T!!!!
I have a 17mth gap btween my sons,and have owned a tandem,side by side and now P&T,oh and a mclaren,found mclaren handles too far apart as I'm so short!!! And becuase eldest wants to walk occ,found steering that hard.
Side by side ok,one handle as opposed to 3 seperate ones iyswim!!! Tandem very heavy,but handy for lie flat for new born and hop on/off for toddler.
The P&T is very easy to steer,and super light,wish I had that straight after c-section,would have made life easier! Got mine off e-bay,for less than £200,as they are pricey,but there is an o-baby double with same principle as P&T,but half the price,brand new under£300. All depends on needs,and as you're due soon,think P&T would suit,but I haven't used it as newborn and toddler and the seat for toddler looked small,as it goes on top? Sorry I'm confusing you now,there is a website to go on and it shows you all positions and how to get them!!! Think if you just type phil and ted into google it'll bring up the official site.
Caroline on this site loves her out and about nippr,maybe that's worth a look? x

I have a Graco Stadium Duo,which I love,even though it's not the newest thing on the market.The back seat either takes the car seat or lies flat for baby,with a bit at the foot you pull up to make it more closed in for a newborn.Massive back hood which covers the baby well so works as a sunshade too.Front seat from six months,hood for that too.
The pushchair is big,I suppose it's heavy,but I find it easy to handle and steer cos the wheels are big too.Massive shopping basket.I've heard it said these are indestructable.Our first one was damaged in a car accident but I liked it enough to buy the same again.We regularly carry an extra little person on board too,,plus school bags,lunch boxes,shopping,you name it.It's quite a workhorse.
Only downsides,one is it is big,I'm short and find the handle a little too high.Two,the pram folds quite big.
Not every one likes them,but I've had one for nearly 7 years now.Still love my Graco
