wow thats bringing back memories got through a few buggies before we got a special needs one just glad argos have a 12 month warranty on them just would take em back and get a new one lol but Karen is right you should be able to get one through occupational therapy or the school might be able to help if its a special needs school. i would ask to see a physiotherapist as if his feet are turning in he would need to be seen at the hospital and they will fit him for pedroes (dont know how spell them lol but matt is wearing them) and they might be able to help with the buggy too. they are great, v strong no amount of bouncing damages them and they look a lot nicer than they did in matts time

Euan is in the same boat,he cannot walk well without pain or falling because of his medical condition.
Long term the Mclaren mentioned would be ideal,but some people do worry about using this pushchair as it can stand out and some people do worry about this.
If its a short term thing a Quinny Buzz is a lot wider than a normal pushchair and Euan has one of these and they are great for his comfort,but Euan has a small height but is a bloater Big Grin
So short and very rotund so the Quinny is ideal for us,whereas if he was long as well the Major would be a better suit.
