Which double stroller do you have? Do you like it?
My son will be 3 years and 10 months old when my baby's born.
Not sure what stroller to get since there's so many.

Unless he rides in the stroller a lot I would get a sit and stand or a single stroller with double seat optional. I personally have the peg perego skate with jump seat and we love it.

We had one made by Jeep. I used it maybe a handful of times. Hated the thing; it didn't maneuver well, it was bulky, and it all around just sucked. My kids are also 21 months apart, my daughter is freakishly independent, though, so she never would ride in it unless she was forced.



So, the only recommendation I have.. Don't get Jeep!

At that age I wouldn't unless he couldn't/wouldnt walk sensibly or you do a lot of walking!



I have a Phil and Ted navigator. It's a single with an optional double attachment. It's awesome.

We have season passes to knotts and sea world and we do use his stroller alot. He doesn't really get off unless he's going to get on a ride plus he's a lil short for his age so he doesn't look huge in his stroller lol so I know we will be walking alot when the baby comes.

It really comes down to what you want out of a stroller. Do you want a side by side, tandem, or single with doubles attachment? Do you want to be able to use an infant carrier with it? Whats your budget?

You could use the stroller you have now and get a baby carrier for the newborn.

I have this one, the Graco Room for 2.. i love it i have a 3 yr old and an 11 month old and soon a newborn who i will most likely wear. My 3 yr old rarely sits in it unless he gets tired of walking. The only thing I kinda don't like is the basket underneath, sometimes it's hard to put the diaper bag in there but i just bought a backpack style diaper bag so no more issues lol.

I'm really liking the Graco - Ready2Grow LX Stand and Ride Double Stroller, Or something similar. And I think spending over 250$ would be too much

I could definitely do that. I still have one that I got for my son but never really used it

My bubs will be 21 months apart and I am not bothering with a new stroller.
I have an ergo, a ring sling and a few wraps... I figure with all those I can manage a toddler and a baby.

I have that exact stroller! I'm a person that does research before I buy....my daughter will be 19mo when my lo is born in May and I wanted something with the most options. And I didn't want to spend a fortune on one either but still wanted one that will last. I've pulled it out of the box and played around and so far I LOVE IT! It has pretty much every option possible.....so as they both grow I can adjust to fit them....it folds super easy with 1 hand. This by far has been the best so far........
