Why?

It's extremely useful for the first year and then for the next child bh.
One of my purchases (several years ago when it was cheaper) that I say was worth every penny. It's used in the house all day as well.

What do you use the first year instead?
Did Doona even exist in 2011?

I've never used one and obviously it has a cult following.
But we use an UBV with the top rated Chicco Keyfit. The UBV pushes better, has more storage space for bags, and isn't obsolete after 1 year.

For the next child we used the UB rumble seat and/or the piggyback. How does having the Doona help for that?

If you live in a city, like one where buildings and walking is a thing, you want a stroller that pushes really well for walks that are more than 5 minutes, the Donna was never really good at that for us. Nothing can beat the Donna for getting you out of the apt, down the elevator and down the block into a taxi, especially if your carrying suitcases and carry ons.
IMHO
Can't say I tried everything and I don't do cult followings.

Don't.  Is extremely unhealthy.  Kids can develop what doctors now call Donna head.   Ask your doctor

Do you not have bags to store under a stroller? Or another stroller for another young child?

This is my point. It's convergence for convergence sake, but isn't good enough at performing tasks an expensive stroller should be good at.
