Yes, there is no way Peter would have coped with self propelling at that age. Even now at 14 he can only do it for a bit. The other thing we found with buggies is that you can get more shopping in them, especially the Independence!

I'm sure we are all going to love having the buggy and the freedom it will give.
Mel :)


I wish the physios who get funny about our kids having buggies and wheelchairs could hear this. Legoland for us would have been impossible without a buggy!
