I have a 15 month old and a baby due in September. I am looking at double strollers and they all seem so big and awkward. Which, if any, double stroller do you use? Pros and cons?

I would go with the back to back ones, not the side by side ones, the side by side you are going to have a hard time getting around in stores. I had one of the back to back ones, I can't remember which one (we got it from target) it's been five years, it is big but it was pretty easy to get around with.

we have a back to back one. The front you can attach a carseat or buckle in baby. in the back the child can sit/stand and has a buckle. it has a basket under it and one umbrella thingy. The side by side are harder with doors stores ect. this one is longer but i can use it at the mall and what not. It folds up pretty small and its fits in my tiny truck with extra room for stuff. I dont use it often but it does come in handy

I have he graco ready2grow double stroller. I absolutely love it!! I would recommend it to anyone. My kids are 16 months apart so it works out well. I really like the big storage compartment underneath. I don't think it's bulky for being a double stroller.

Yeah, I'm a little worried I may need to get a new infant car seat for it to work.  I don't know if they universally work in all strollers, you know?

I used baby trends sit and stand stroller. It was back to back but it handled well, I got the one with the back bench seat since my son was 3 when I had my youngest but there are ones that use a regular seat then turn into a bench seat.

I like the Baby Trend Sit-N-Stand LX tandem double stroller. The handlebars were high enough so DH (6' tall) didn't have to hunch over, and once the older one got bigger, the rear seat could be removed to form a bench and platform for the older one to stand of if/when he/she got tired of walking. It's around $150-$180 at Target.

I got a back to back stroller. The car seat is graco. Not sure about the stroller but it'll say fits most or only specific brand car seats. I hardly used mine so it was a waste for me. Sigh. Oh well! I'd give you mine if you lived near lol. Its bluish. I had a boy and girl. Dd is the older one

The Baby Trend comes with a universal hook thing for all car seats to latch on to.

I had the sit and stand deluxe. It was a double stroller but the back seat removed and became a sit and stand. That one will grow with u.
