to get a double stroller or not? (poll) ♥ The Prodigy Due March 3 (boy); 33 kids; Perth, Australia 5617 posts

So DS will be 2 months off turning 2 when this LO is born he has been walking since 13 months. Do you think I will need a double stroller when new baby arrives? Or will a single one and a baby Bjorn do if DS gets tired walking?

Ditch the Bjorne and get an ergo, Tula, or kidder pack. It's better for both of you.

My son is 3, expecting another little boy, and We've got a double stroller on the way! Personally, with my son, I know for a fact when he sees me nearly immobile with a stoller and an infant, he's gonna run off as often as possible. So maybe even if yours doesn't now, might in the future. I know that without it, I'll rarely be able to take both anywhere by myself lol.

Its really not a decision you need to make right now. I wouldn't sweat it. Maybe put some money back if when baby comes and you feel like one would benefit your family's needs.

i feel i should revise. The 'double stroller' i got was one of the ride-along ones, with the infant stroller seat in the front and the bench in the back for big brother. Cheaper, nicer, easier to handle.

This time around I am just going with the flow. I will have necessities bought for when baby is born, but everything else will be bought on an as needed basis. I plan on just putting some money back for those possible baby items as they may arise.



We bought/were given so much stuff with dd and so much of it went unused. This time around, I don't want the money or room compromised on things this baby won't need/use. Keepin' it simple! Lol

I bought one and used maybe 5x it's more hassle for us then anything my son was 15m when dd was born (I bought a side by side at a garage sale and was given a sit or stand stroller hater both lol. I would suggest an ergo, Ring sling, or Tula to carry and let little one walk or you can tandem carry...or single stroller.




I wear dd in a ring sling and walk with ds. If he gets tired I always have my ergo in the car so I can tandem carry him on my back. Makes errands in general easier imo

I think it just depends on what your prefer. Sometimes DD will walk and we'll have DS in the ergo, but the double stroller definitely helps at times.

DS will be 2 1/2 when the baby comes, my plan is just to have baby in the woven wrap and the "big" kid in the stroller I need something I can manage on a bus and there is no way in hell that a double stroller would fit on a bus

I'd do the single. I absolutely HATE my double stroller. I take that back, I actually love the actual stroller, but It's so big & bulky. I can't get it out of the car myself. We have used it less than 10 times all together, so I don't feel loke the persom who bought it for me got jer 300 bucks worth. If you do a lot of shopping, walking, vacationing, etc it might be easier to get a double.

The double stroller was a must for me when I had my second. We bought a Phil a d Teds double and aphave found it was worth every penny . We live in a town where only about %10 of the streets have sidewalks with the rest with varying terrain needing something a bit more heavy duty . I guess it would really depend on your lifestyle . We're an active family and get out allot and sometimes the Moby just doesn't cut it for long trips . If your still not sure you would use one you could always pick up a used stroller from a consignment store or Craigslist that way you don't feel guilty of it doesn't get used as much.
