Travel System, Carseats, and Strollers...Oh My!!!

Need a little insight. I'm pregnant with my second child...We bought a travel system with my first one and it was great! My question is: Is there anyone out there who DID NOT buy a travel system with their child? I don't want to buy a double stroller but my oldest is only two. How do you get around without carrying another carseat or buying a whole new stroller/ carseat. I hope I made this question clear. I wasn't sure how to ask it.

  • you could get a wrap or a sling to wear the new baby and your son could still have the stroller. By the time the baby is too big to "wear" your son will probably be wanting to walk and the baby could have the stroller. If you still have your son's infant seat you can reuse it as long as it isnt expired or been in an accident.

  • well actually i just thought of all the places that i go often where i would need a stroller, and there werent that many, stores all have shopping carts to push them around in, the mall you can rent strollers, same with the zoos and usually aquariums and such. yeah they are nice to have but be realistic about how often you will be using it. and if you do use one a lot you can get a sit-n-stand stroller, its not quite a double stroller, but its meant for familys that have a slightly older child, they are pretty neat and affordable.

  • I only have one, but we have a car seat, stay in the car, a stroller, and a wagon. So not a travel system and it works fine for us.

    But to be of some help my moms friend has this stroller that has an adjustable seat for an infant, lay down position to sit up, and then the older child has a sitting place.....In fact, I will get the link to it, it's pretty cool.

  • I promise you will survive if you don't have the best equipment...the only thing you should make sure you have is a car seat.....
