Jump to a month: September
Having received my Out'n'About Little Nipper Double, my first thought was; wow! That box can't possibly be holding a double pushchair! The box was really light and compact.
Assembling the pushchair was really quick and easy, it was literally a case of pushing on the wheels, adding the seat liners and attaching the bumper bar – all in all this took me around 10-15 minutes.
This pushchair is incredibly lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. The seat liners make each seat super padded and comfortable for the children and the 5 point harness is really easy to adjust to fit each child. Both seats have individual hoods which is great for me as Frankie doesn't tend to like his hood extended whereas Charlie does as he still sleeps a lot whilst out in a pushchair. The seats are also really easy to recline by simply adjusting the strap on the back of each seat.
I'm looking forward to testing this with my boys; I hope that it is still as easy to manoeuvre once they are in it!
The seats are also deceptively spacious both Frankie and Charlie look really comfortable.
I do however find the basket quite small as the raincover fills it and so
there's not really much more space for any shopping so think I would
have to use a buggy clip as well.
Other than that I am enjoying testing it and look forward to some more outings in the next week now we are all better.

So this week the the fun fair is in town. We went twice as unfortunately the first time it poured with rain so the boys stayed in the pushchair , but it did mean I got to put the rain cover to the test!
What I like about it is it covers the whole pushchair. Other doubles I have used have had 2 raincovers which means it's inevitable that one child gets wet. It fits really nicely and keeps the boys dry. Frankie has also found the air holes in the side - I've attached a photo of him with his finger sticking out of the side!
My husband has had a push this week too I like the height adjustable handle - it's really quick and easy.
Our second trip to the fair was dry but very muddy - the wheels handled this brilliantly and didn't get stuck at all and despite being caked in mud still steered fine.

This week we have visited Rushden Lakes - a newly opened shopping and leisure.
One of the things I love about this pushchair is that it's so easy to get round shops (with the exception of Next which is rubbish for pushchair access!) It literally feels like it's the width of a single and yet the seats are so roomy. Both boys have plenty of growing space and don't look squished at all, I have found that usually side by side doubles have really narrow seats meaning that Frankie can look too big for the seat even though he shouldn't. This isn't the case with the Little Nipper Double at all despite looking small they aren't - even with a cosytoes on each seat.
Both boys also seem to find it extremely comfortable to fall asleep in as pictured!

I find the individual hoods on the Little Nipper Double a great plus point. Frankie doesn't like to have the hood up as he's far too nosy and loves to look about! Charlie however likes to have the hood up especially when he's snoozing.
Each hood has a little window so you can still keep an eye on your little ones which I really like.
I do find sitting the seats up from the reclined position a little fiddly. I'm hoping that this is something that will just take a bit of practice as the boys regularly fall asleep in the pushchair - they obviously find it super comfy!
