I'm wondering if anyone could recommend a great triple stroller? We're having our 3rd in July and our oldest will only be 2 1/2, so she'll still need a place to rest. I don't want to spend a fortune but also don't want to get a cheap one that I won't like and won't really use. Has anyone tried the triple sit and stand?

I tried the sit and stand...HATED IT. It wouldn't turn, the back seat was a joke...I returned it and bought the peg perego triplette SW...which is a great stroller for parks, zoos, and outings like that, but for every day stuff it was just TOO LONG. Besides the fact that it barely fits in the back of a minivan. I used to just put the baby in a front pack and use the double for most errands...

I think we're going to look into the triple sit and stand. The balancing act seems too complicated! I'm sure when my husband comes for walks with us we'll just use our double and a single, but when I'm on my own I think I'll need the triple. Our second car died so that means I have to walk everywhere for everything (which is a really good thing) but I'll need the space and my hands for bags and groceries and juice cups etc.

Right now we don't have a triple, and I don't think we are going to put the money out for one. What we do right now, my oldest in 2 1/2, is when my DH is with us, the older two are in the side-by-side umbrella and the youngest is in her stroller. When we go for short walks I use the regular double stroller for the youngest two, and my oldest walks.

Sorry, I never had much luck finding a triple stroller, but my oldest was 3 when I had my third. For shorter walks (less than a mile), believe it or not she actually pushed the second (who was just over a year) in an umbrella stroller and loved to do it! I carried baby #3 in the sling and pushed the stoller when she got tired. For longer walks, I just used my double side-by-side stroller and when she got tired she either sat between the boys or up on top of the stroller hood. If baby was sleeping, he slept across the hood and she sat down below. Where there is a will there is a way, and I love to walk! In fact when I started babysitting my 3 yr. old niece as well, they both sat up top when they were tired...lol. Seriously, a double is likely all you would need and probably cheaper (and easier to manouver in a store). I hope this helps!
