MommyToOBe:My baby boy n DD will be 23 months apart.. I will be getting the City Select double.. I like in Miami, Fl. And I see all the time women with two babies stuggling with the big Sid by side strollers.. Dh n I wanted to avoid that so we are going with a front and back stroller..
Same here...our two little ones will be 23 months apart. We have the Baby Jogger City Select. I love that stroller.
finallyMrsM:I am looking at the joovy sit and stand. It is opossite most of the sit and stands where the toddler gets the nice seat and the baby carrier snaps into the back by mom. Then when the baby is bigger to sit in the actualy seat, the toddler then will sit on a nicer bench type seat in back.
We are looking at this too. We tried it out in the store the other day and our toddler loved it!
We are going to need a double too, and my biggest problem with them is how heavy they are! The lightest two I have found are the Peg Perego Aria 60/40 (around 19 lbs) and the Combi Sport Twin (around 21 lbs). They are both side-by-sides, but they fit through a standard doorway and really aren't terribly wide. They also accept one infant carseat, which is nice when you have one newborn and one older child. The baskets aren't huge, but they fold up nice and small and are reasonably priced. The Peg Perego is around $350 and the Combi is around $230, depending on which color/style you choose. I recommend at least test driving these, the Peg Perego can be found at BuyBuyBaby and the Combi is at Babies R Us. I hope you find something you like!
Side note: A friend has 3 year old twins and I asked her about her double stroller the other day. She had a tandem (front to back) and loved it, but it was pretty heavy. She still has pain from her c-section (3 years later!) and she and the doctor think it is because she was constantly lifting a heavy stroller. The big ones are nice, but the weight of them and the potential long-term consequences just aren't worth it. Go with a light one! :)
TheBrowns:I love my Phil & Ted's Sport! I also have the Baby Trend Sit and Stand, which is no good, in my opinion.
Why? We are looking at that one right now...
