If you make the back seat into a sit and stand and use an infant seat in the front is there still enough room for your DD to sit comfortably, or have you not tried that yet?
Just curious.
Someone said the regular sit and stand was a tight fit with the infant seat on the front and kid sitting in back..

I wouldn't waste your money on a sit n stand. Just get a single stroller and a wheeled board. Soon your 4yo will be off to school & then you'll be stuck pushing a bulky stroller for just 1 kid...the great thing about the boards, is that they just unclip and you're back to a regular ole single. There is a universal board made by Lascal and it's compatible with everything from Graco to Chicco to Maclaren strollers.

That's what we used for our almost 3yo & newborn, then again for our 4yo & newborn. I'm partial to Bugaboo & their wheeled board...

Same board, different stroller...and that's our silly 8yo hitching a ride.

I have seen those, but where would my sons head and upper body fit with this stroller that we have?
There's no opening in front of the handle bar.

My sister has that stroller, I'm pretty sure you can remove the parent tray [which would leave plenty of room to stand] or he could ride outside of the handlebar. The site says that it's very compatible, full use of the brake and even fold with the brackets in place.

Personally, I would sell the Quattro Tour and take that money + whatever you were willing to spend on a double stroller & buy a better single w/board. You'll seriously regret buying a double/sit n stand for a 4yo...

Ya, I'm not sure where the sunglass holder unhooks at...but on the side of the handle bar you'll see the buttons to pop off the cupholder/parent tray part.



But pretty much every stroller is Graco car seat compatible. Even Bugaboo [my strollers] offer Graco adapters. You'll just have to figure out a budget & then see what falls into it. Definitely look for something that either has 2 handle bars or that space between the seat & handle bar for the rider to stand.

The only thing I worry about is my son not wanting to stand for so long.



I will look into some other options though.
I planned on keeping my single either way so I'll figure something out, thanks!
