Im expecting baby number 2 due in march. My son will be 18 months. We currently have a beautiful silvercross pram (we were only planning one child) which unfortunately is only a single. Are there ways to convert prams into a double? I’m not ready to fork out big dollars on a new double pram ut I guess I will if I have to.
I’ve been looking at the toddler seats but they look like bike seats. Not sure how long my son will be happy sitting for in a hard bike type seat.
Has anyone had any experience with this?

  • Congratulations! We bought an inexpensive double pram, but didn’t actually use it much – our oldest was ready to move into a stroller around 2 years, so that worked for family trips (pram and stroller).

  • We bought this universal attachable skate that comes with a seat. My toddler spends time standing, seating or even not using it (walking). So I suppose that is a good option.

  • I personally wouldn’t do anything that risks the structural integrity/stability of the pram. Single prams are only designed to support a certain weight distribution and double prams are designed for double support specifically. So while it’s another expense if you want a double pram you’d have to buy a double.

  • Probably you will need to purchase a Second Seat Conversion Kit which come with some prams. I would ask advise by the retailer

  • Thanks everyone. I will hold off buying a double for now. My boy may want to walk everywhere and in which case I won’t need the double pram. I also don’t want to sell my silvercross. Hopefully I can find an attachment

  • There are lots of stroller seats that are more like a seat and not like a bike seat. In saying that, I had a silver cross with my first and found it wasn’t compatible with many toddler seat attachments, I ended up selling it and getting a second hand Baby Jogger City Select Lux with the bench seat attachment.
    I probably didn’t even need to though, I’ll probably carry my baby in a baby carrier 99% of the time anyway, and by the time I start putting them in the pram the older one will be ready to walk without needing the extra seat

  • We had the same problem.
    In all honesty, we just bought a stroller for my toddler – dad pushes one and I push the other! Toddlers don’t want to be in their strollers half the time so really you don’t need to bother as this is probably a good walking and exploring experience for them to be able to run around freely.

  • How about sell it this one and buy second hand double pram? That was what I did.

  • That was going to be my suggestion, add a toddler seat to your pram. I haven’t really got anything else to offer
