What kind of stroller do you have?

I have a 3 yr old ds and a 15 month old dd. I need a double stroller for them but I don't know what kind to get. My ds weighs about 45 lbs and dd weighs about 20 lbs.

  • They have a stroller by Graco where the 3 old could stand in the back (it does have a seat for them o sit down but its like a bench) with a regular seat in front for your younger baby. The question to ask yourself will your 3 old sit in a stroller of would he rather walk.

  • He would rather be walking but I always worry that he will wonder off when we're in a crowded area like the mall. I've seen the sit and stand strollers and I'm leaning towards those.

  • I'm having the same issue- I'm due in 7 weeks and can't decide between a sit n stand or a double side by side. I like the sit n stand because you can snap the carseat in, but it's not as big as a tandem. I like the double side by side because it folds so small and, unlike the sit n stand, my 3 year old son would be able to nap in it. The downside to it is that the infant car seat doesn't snap in! Decisions, decisions. I went to the mall on Monday and my son slept in his stroller for nearly 2 hours. I think maybe I shouldn't get the sit n stand because he still naps in the stroller sometimes. If your son doesn't nap anymore, and prefers to walk, I'd probably get the sit n stand if I were you.

  • I found a side by side that I really like but its on the internet and i cant "try it out" first. And I need one that will fold up small (i have a tahoe and the back doesn't have much room) And like you if my ds gets tired I want him to be able to nap or at least be in a comfy seat to rest! Its such a hard decision! lol

  • I have a Baby Jogger double (and also a triple and single).

    If you get a side by side, you'll only need 36" to be able to get it into buildings....

    I hated the tandem I had. It was a pain when you had to pop it up over a curb or crack in the sidewalk. But we did a lot of walking. And the heavier the kids get, the harder it is to steer.

    I've not had that problem with the joggers...even when the weights aren't even!
