Hi guys
Saw a childminder with a buggy pod attached to her pushchair the other day and really liked the look of it but thought I would run it past you guys for your comments before I look into buying one. Does anyone have one?

Well, not sure if it applies to all types of pod, but a friend of mine had one and it kept coming off and was really unstable. :(

She wouldn't use it as she was worried about the baby getting hurt. Not sure what make it was.

That doesn't sound very good - thanks for the info

sorry haven't had one but don't think we would get one as it doesn't look stable enough for us.

I went to a local baby equipment shop and asked about these a few weeks ago. They said they had decided against stocking them as they are very small and there have been some problems with them collapsing with kids in them!
I know they have updated it recently, so I don't know if it is now better or not.
Sorry, I guess this isn't really much help. ;)

Oakie Dokie has one , you could try pm'ing her to ask what she thinks xx

i did have one and for a couple of months it was fine until it broke with my dd sitting in it and she cracked the side of her head on a brick wall!!!!

it was very lucky we wasn't on a main road cause the back part broke away from the pushchair and it swung sideways with her in it.

i wouldn't advise one

i have a buggy pod, i had it attached to phil and teds, the wheel seemed to keep going in on its self and i had to keep pulling it out. i not sure if i had it attached correctly but never had the time to change it and the toddler i had in it, she was very heavy and quite big for nearly 2, i used it for a few weeks and then toddler walked . too much of a faff

Why not ask the other minder if you could borrow it for a go to see if it suits?

I tried one last year and had the problem with it collapsing and found the seat quite small for a toddler but not sure if they new one is any better.

I have a seat to go buggy board and find this a lot better and for a younger child sitting on it i secure with reins

Good suggestion but I don't actually know her just spoke to her at an event for Childminding ever.
Thanks for replying

Thanks to everyone for replying I think there have been enough negative remarks to put me off buying one - will stick with my double buggy. Just thought it might be easier for me to use one with a single buggy but I have definately gone off the idea

Thanks again guys
