  • Well I had twins and the stroller I hated was the side by side umbrella stroller. That thing was terrible for shopping and it is to wide to fit through a door. The one that worked best for me was the the evenflo double stroller. I drove a little car and it fit in the trunk of it. Hope this helps.

  • I am in the same situation...my DD will be 18-ish months when baby 2 arrives. I have decided that I want a Sit-N-Stand. I have talked to people that have them and have heard nothing bad about them. They give the older child the option of sitting, standing or walking with mom/dad. I'm super excited and can't wait until the baby is here so I can actually test it...lol. Also, I have heard horrible things about double jogging strollers. Apparently, they are hard to maneuver in tight spaces.

  • GRACO!!! they're in expensive and they work good. i have a saturn SL 2 4 dr..tiny ass trunk..but it fits in there!! i never heard of the sit and stand..but at your babys age, he/she will be too young for that right now. i think mine was called a sit n stroll..i love it..huge storage on the bottom, and you can put the infant seat in the front or back. and the back seat lays down so baby can sleep. i swear by it. also, it's easy to put up and take down

  • I have a BabyTrend sit n stand deluxe. The rear seat removes so the older child can stand or sit. I absolutely love it. My oldest was only 12 1/2 months old when I had baby 2. It's been a great stroller. I have a ford focus and it fits in the trunk easily. You can go to strollerdepot.com to find this particular stroller. I believe Target has them but only one color. Good Luck and Congrats!

  • I have the graco duel rider... i have a 2.5 year old and a 10 month old and its great!!!!! i switch them around front and back and they love it!! Id def go with a front and back stroller NOT a side by side... they are to wide to fit through small spaces ... the front and back ones are a lil easier to manover i think!!!
