a sit & stand works wonderfully.
also, why would a 4 year old need a stroller?

I would guess that it would be for trips that require a great deal of walking. Little 4 year old legs get tired!



but yes, OP, get a sit & stand!

He willingly rides in his now and if we don't use one he is always wanting to be carried.
I've seen sit and stands but there are so many different ones, guess I'm looking for input on those.

Wear the baby and have the 4 year old walk.



My kids are 4 years apart as well. I tried using a stroller for DS but it was to hard to use while shopping alone with kids. So I started wearing DS. It was SO much easier and I loved having him so close to me. :)

I guess my 4 YO is different, he loves walking everywhere.

Im getting that one. I cant do the sit n stand cause my boy will want to sleep. As far as letting my 4yr old walk, no way thats happening. Every once in a while is fine, but he is a runner, he will take off and the last thing I want to do is chase him and have a newborn.
Oh and with a sit and stand make sure you test it before, we have been looking strollers for a while and the sit n stand seat has to be fully reclined to have the carrier in it, so less room for the child to sit on the bench.

My son was once like that...with the whole running thing. (he was 2.5 years old when I had my newborn). All I would do, when he didn't want to sit or stand on the stroller was get hi to hold the side of the stroller, and if he started running away, I would buckle him in and explain to him that if he is going to run away then he cant walk, he has to get buckled in. That did the trick. :D and to this day I can trust that he wont pull that B.S.

My only worry with a double wide stroller is fitting through doors and other spaces.

Ya that was mine too, I read all the reviews and so far this one fits through doors. I mean Im not going to be taking it through my front door, it will always be in my car. But like at the mall or something, those doors have to be wide enough to fit a wheel chair, so this stroller will fit.

Mine too! but my oldest daughter was different. She'd walk willingly for a while but then she'd tire out and become super whiny so having a stroller available was a lifesaver when we were at places like the zoo or a theme park, lol

We have this stroller, http://www.gracobaby.com/Products/Pages/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=1804098 I bought it last January because I assumed I'd get pregnant pregnant right away.

I like it a lot but I only have one child. She likes sitting in both seats.. Although it's not a jogger I can jog with it.
