I was one of those people who ignored the pushy sales assistants at the baby stores and steered in the opposite direction of the ‘practical and affordable’ prams. I decided I didn’t need a pram that accommodated for two, my first baby would be well and truly walking by the time the second comes along. Although I have never regretted my decision in purchasing the Emmaljunga Nitro City for my first (don’t get me started.. so much love for this baby!), I was yet to actually spend a day out with my nearly 2 year old.
