Yes, it's worth it. You may not use it all the time at first, because the baby will be small and you won't go many places for prolonged periods of time. My daughter is almost 3 1/2 and my son is now 1 1/2. I just purchased a sit and stand stroller because we're getting out more now. We go to our local Aquarium a lot, and then there are walks at the park, even going to the mall. While my daughter is perfectly capable of walking, and does for long periods of time, she can get tired. She recently complained that her feet hurt after we'd been walking around for about an hour. That, and once you're more mobile, you're not always going to want to walk at your sons pace. When you're in a hurry, you'll appreciate a place for him to sit so that you can go however fast you need to. Hope this helps! :-)

I found that I didn't like the double stroller where one sat in front of the other. My boys are 1 year apart to the day. I did find that when my youngest was able to sit up we did buy a used umbrella stroller to try out. My boys loved it. Our oldest still loves to be pushed in it and he's 2.5 years old but my (now middle son) who's 1.5 years old loves to walk on his own then sit in the double stroller. If your son rather walk then sit in stroller then maybe a double stroller wouldn't be worth it, that's one of the reasons why we didn't go and buy a new double stroller right away we were scared that it wouldn't work out.

I just bought one about a month ago. I had been having to take my grandmother to doctors appointments every week and the last appointment I took her to I had the stroller and it is the front to back one. It is lengthy but the good thing about it is that it is so easy to unfold and fold back up. My single stroller that I received for my firstborn as a babyshower gift, gave me the worst time trying to get it unfolded. I hated it! This one rides much smoother and I believe it's actually lighter than the single stroller and it has cup holders for mom and both kids. And I agree the storage underneath is a must for having two kids. Mine is a baby trend sit and stand and I bought it at babies r us!

You have to decide what is best for you and base it off of the personality of your children. I have 3 boys (5, 3 and 1 year). My double stroller was the best investment ever. Let me re-phrase my sturdy "Bob" super-smooth easy to handle double stroller was the best investment ever (my cheaper stroller eventually broke after one year, it couldn't hold up to the use). Two of my three boys were huge from the get go (my 5 year old now wears 7 year clothing and my 1 year old is in 2 year clothing). My 3 year old gets tired easy and still needs rest and naps...if I don't have the double with me, we fight because he wants me to carry him and my back can't handle it...it is a tough struggle and not worth having. The Bob is so great, the baby and 3 year old sit in the seats and when my 5 year old is tired, he sits at their feet. It is perfect and sturdy!!! Every child is different, if your's doesn't get tired easy or ask to sit much then you probably don't need one, but if they do get tired and you do long Disneyland and other adventures as often as we do, then go for it! Good luck

Oh yeah, and also sometimes just so I can relax for a moment and not stress that the kids are wondering away, I just need them in the stroller for peace of mind!

We have the same debate going on at the moment. I am due any day and my daughter is 15 months and nearly walking. We are thinking that we will need to get a double inline buggy because even though she can walk a little school runs with my eldest boy will not be fun without a double. I might even find that I have to wear the harness and push a buggy as well if we don't invest and a trip to town would become a nightmare. Good luck with your choice.

lol if you're tough enough to push it. I'm aver 115 lbs and it was hard for me!

[deleted account]

if walking is not your main method of transportation, and you only use a stroller in the stores or at the park, you may be happy to buy the attachment for toddlers to stand on that affixes to the back of most strollers. i have seen it at toys r us. this way you can continue to use your current stroller instead of buying a new one. we had the same conflict at our house. our son turned 2 only days before our twins were born. we were certain he would never ride again but he is very energetic and when he is not in the stroller he runs everywhere, except for when he stops to inspect construction sites or ant hills, and then I can't get him moving again. so we bought a multi function carriage that works as a jogger, stroller, or bike trailer and more. a tandem for the girls. and our son liked it so much we bought the single for him, since it is great to take all of them for bike rides. now he will ride some of the way and walk some of the way. you may find you get more peace of mind with your son confined, if he will let you. not all tandem strollers are created equal. if you decide to purchase one, spend the extra cash to get one that is lightweight, can fold easily, and has all the features you want (not only the ones you "need") you only do this once, why not make it easy on yourself so you can enjoy your walks? when you are done with it you can sell it online or at consignment and make a little back to put towards something else for the kids...

My older son always hated strollers, so I didn't think I'd want one. Then the baby didn't really like carriers and preferred strollers, so once the baby was in a stroller then big brother wanted to be in one some of the time too, for awhile I used to just sit them side by side in a standard stroller (of course then they stopped fitting). They are also useful for the odd trip to large amusement parks, big parks, or all day outings.

Remember, if you decide you want one you can get one, they often turn up in second hand stores or go on sale

I prefer the side to side double. I don't like being in busy places with a front to back double. My 3 year old is nuts and can climb in and out even when strapped in, and the larger child goes in the front....he is my flight risk, so I prefer to have them both closer to me. I must say in two plus years of a double, I have only not fit in maybe 2-3 doors. It really has not been a problem. I can also tend to both children and talk to them while walking...no stops are necessary. Hope these little tidbits help!

I would have to say yes! My children are 13 months apart so we kinda had to get a double stroller, but now that my older child is 2 1/2, she likes to walk whenever she has the chance, but there definately are times when I'm so thankful that I have the double stroller and can strap them both in, and not have to worry about her walking off or having to chase her. If you are considering the double stroller, I would highly suggest the ones that have the kids single file, not side by side. I have a few friends who have the side by side ones and they regret it. It inhibits taking the stroller though certain doorways and is harder to maneuver and move out of the way of people. Hope I could be of assistance! Good luck!

I have the City Micro by Baby Jogger. I love it! It's not big and bulky. Very easy to fold and fits just about every door entrance with no problems.

Well I have a 2 year old and a 1 year old. i love my double stroller. i do not go anywhere without it. i take it everywhere I go. Walks, stores, parks and doctors. And let me tell you it comes in handy at the doctors. Especially when i am by myself with 2 babies.



Overall I have had no problems with mine. easy to get in and out of truck and car. I just love it!

If your son doesn't use a stroller very much, I say don't worry about getting a double. My daughters are two years a apart but my older one consistenly uses a stroller otherwise she'll run for it! But they can be a pain, and I did my homework. I picked one that was light and easy to move, but a double is a double and it get bulky so if you can avoid, go for it.

you run the risk of making the older one lazy! if you have somewhere where he can sit he probably will sit. i have 2 boys age 1 and 3. i didn't want to buy a double pram because my first son walked everywhere anyway, so i just bought a buggy board for him to stand on if he gets tired. he generally walks, i also have complete control over when he gets to stand on and when he has to walk as its removable. so if i want him to walk i simply don't attach it.

My kids are 2 years apart and I LOOOOOOVE my double stroller and still use it daily even though my kids are now 3,5 and 16months. While my son was perfectly able to walk if he wanted to he refused if tired and was safer in the stroller while tantruming. It's impossible to chase after a toddler with a stroller. We have the Phil&Ted Sports btw and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

I have a double stroller with a 3 year old and a 9 month old. I also have an umbrella stroller. We went through this debate and figured that seeing how we dont like to carry our kids around that this would be a great option. That way, were not playing favorites and they both can ride when they are tired of walking. It has been extremely helpful in sooo many situations. State fairs, long walks, shopping, etc. Im so glad I have mine! If you are worried about spending alot of money, just get a bike trailer that converts into a stroller, then you can take them on bike rides and convert it when u need to!

My kids are 17 months apart and I could not live without my double stroller. A lot of it has to do with how often someone will be taking the two kids somewhere without another adult. My husband works a lot and I refuse to not be able to go and do, so I knew I needed a way of going and doing as the three of us (my 2 kids and myself). My kids are now 4 and 2.5, we still use the double stroller. I have "downsized" and only have 2 different models (an umbrella version and a jogging version) but I still use one of them very often when we go somwhere. However, all that being said, if you are not planning on "going and doing" with the two kids a lot, it probably isn't worth the money.

I purchased a Sit 'n Stand Elite Stroller by Baby Trend and it was totally worth it! It was perfect for me because I could snap my son's car seat into the front, and my daughter ( who was 3.5 at the time) could sit or stand on the back part. Now my son is 1 and my daughter is 4. When we go to the mall, zoo or park my son rides in the front seat and my daughter sits or stands on the back bench. My daughter is a bit hyper, so it's best that I have an option for her to ride on the stroller. In your case, you may not need it. They are a bit pricey and you can only use it for so long.

[deleted account]

I agree that you know your child best. My son walks most places, but I still want one for times when I need to get them both safely somewhere and may not have an extra hand to hold onto the older one. For us, I think we'll use it @ the airport, parking lots, crossing busy streets on the way to parks while also walking the dog, and/or when he's wanting to eat a snack in the stroller on the way to or from the park.

My 2 children are 19months apart, so I found a phil & Teds double buggy useful as my then 19thmonth old was walking, but was not used to walking around while shopping etc. They are now 21/2 and 10 1/2 months and we still use the double buggy when we go out. As someone else said previously, that it totally depends on your situation. Maybe wait and see how the older one goes when baby arrives (also mentioned below).

I would suggest that if you get a stroller that you get the Phil and Ted's Sport Buggy stroller with the doubles kit. You'll have to look at a picture of it to understand how it works, but it's a jogging stroller that has an extra seat you can attach onto the back side for another child. It's wonderful, and if you don't need to use the second seat you can just take it off. Folds up nicely, fairly light weight, tons of accessories to make it very versatile. I love mine and would spend the money again in a heart beat. We use it for taking walks on our local bike path and my kids love it.

Thou my other thought is if you are not sure see if there is someone around your area that hires out double strollers so when baby is born u cna hire out one. Then u can see if it is of use or not. the first 5mths i used a carry cot wiht the buggy board on my pushchair but after that i went to the double thou wiht a side by side one wiht moveable front wheels make for easy moving around shops fixed front wheels is a total pain. I had a front on fornt one where one sits in front of hte other and my oldest hated it after he fell asleep in it one day as it hurt hsi neck no real neck support.

So I am thinking that maybe if you are nto total sure then see about hiring one and see how it goes and if u use it. or if you cant hire see if anyone has one you can get a loan of once baby is here. Thou I found as my second child grew the requirement form my stroller/pushchair changed. I started wiht mountian buggy carry cot and boggy board (they stand on this) alside using the front on front one, tha tis one in front of hte other. I then had to purchase the side by side as the youngest got to the age of sitting up he wonted ot be able to see where we were going and he was nto able tos it inteh front one cause if he fell asleep i was unable ot recline him. so went and got the double mountain buggy which i still use to this day.

Short trips my boys will walk otherwise all i here is i have sore legs from my oldest so push chairs saves tantrums and arguments wiht him and me. there have been days where i have gone to town wiht just the singel and wish i had hte double in the car.

But look at different options around just incase you wont know till it happens what you will need

Ok me not read all the post but from my own experince a double is worth getting, my boys are 2yrs 1month apart my oldest could walk but i got the double for days where i would be out shopping for ages, going for walks, or when they spent time wiht family. 3yrs later we still use hte double for when we are at soccer on Sundays as I play and gives both the boys some where to sit and rest and go to sleep in if they wont wiht out fighting. Also find we tend ot use it if we go shopping eraly evening late afternoon as the oldest who is 5 next month is tired he tends to nto wont to walk and to save issues and tantrums we use it. at 2 he was happly walking around and hardly used it but wiht 2 it can be easier if u can just strap them both in to one. I did try the buggy board on the back of my single push chair it was ok it worked at times but not others. sadly my push chair can not take a toddle seat due to its design so brought the double in the same brand. I brought second too for double not brand new as we unsure how much use it would have but it has paided for itself now

I think it depends on how many extended outings you do or if you like to walk or jog. I do a lot of outing that we are there all day so I would have to say YES! I am fond of the Phil and Ted Jogger (pricey but worth it) If you plan on having more kids then I would make the investment.

[deleted account]

Having used a double stroller for many children over many years, I think the answer lies in the activities you are planning. If you have time for a toddler to walk where you are going; that's great. I found the double stroller offered 2 valuable things: crowd control and speed control. Both controlled by me! Mine also had large wheels which made it easy to control.

I worried about the same thing when my husband and I were buying a new stroller. We decided to go ahead with it. We bought a side by side stoller. It was the best decision ever! We love the stroller and so do our children. It is great for when you are shopping or when you are speding the day walking. For instance we took our kids to the zoo and my oldest started getting tired, so we put her in the stroller and reclined it so she could take a nap. I highly recomend a double stoller.

I would say Yes!
my oldest son walks mostly too and we also have a baby that cant,
I have a sit and stand and I just dont buckle my toddler in!
so that he can walk if he wants but he can also sit!
I love my sit and stand and think it was worth every penny!
(its also still small so its kinda like having a one kid stroller )

I liked it because you had more room to put things. When I had my second my first was just shy of 3 by 13 days. he did use it and I wished that i had just gotten one for my babyshower it would have gotten alot more use that way. I am now selling an almost new looking stroller because my kids are 8,5,and 1 and I see no need for it. Just use your best judgement,or get one that is used so you don't waste to much money on a new one.

My two girls are 20 months apart and I did get a double stroller. I got a Graco Quatro and I LOVE IT. What if your son gets sleepy and you have no where to put him. I take mine to the Zoo, shopping and sometimes she gets out and walks but most of the time my oldest who is now 3 rides in it. I use it for walks so I can walk faster than she can walk. She can get in and out of it herself. I would get one if I were you only because there will be those times when you wished you had one. I got mine on www.albeebaby.com. It was $250 and I only paid $199 for it brand new.

my son just gone 2. when we are out he stil likes to have a nap so i take my double pram out makes it alot easier than him kickin off or wanting to be carried cause he tired. my son walks most places but still likes to go in the pram every now and then. i think having a double pram is a good idea. i give my son a choice to choose if he wants to go in the pram or walk 9 times out of 10 he always says walk but then i have the double pram if needed.

I have a three year old and a 7 month old, My three year old would rather walk than ride in a stroller, so I haven't bought a double stroller yet, the only time I miss not having one is when we go to a theme park or the zoo. Otherwise It's been fine. I have a girlfriend whose children are similar in age and she didn't buy one either. However, she regrets it because when her oldest gets sleepy and she's out with both kids, she cant let the oldest just nap in the stroller, so she has to get her home.

[deleted account]

I have a 2.5 year old and a 5 month old and I don't know what I'd do without my double stroller. Even though my oldest walks a lot of places, when I'm carrying the baby it is hard to keep him in line. So, I give him a snack and put him up front (we have a double that is front to back) and he doesn't complain about it. I just keep it in my car and we're ready to go at the mall or around the block.

I did buy it second hand, so I didn't spend a lot and I plan to have more so I felt it was an investment.

Mine are three years apart. We did not invest in a double stroller. Some places we go the three yr. old does get tired of walking after a while (amusement parks, zoos, fairs). We got a rolling step that hooks onto the stroller. When it's not neded (before she wears out) it folds up out of the way. It's been pretty convenient (and an attention drawer :) ) (It's called a Buggy Board).

Your children were born like mine, close in age. I think it depends on where you live and how often you will be going outside. My kids are 18 months, 1 week apart born Halloween and June 5 and I loved having a double stroller, because when youngest was born in the late spring and we used it all summer. My 19 month old and new born could go to the mall and around the block comfortably. My 19 month could walk well, but not far or around the block. We used it in the winter too, from the parking lot to the mall, because my oldest could not walk through the snow. But, it was really hard to push through all the slush in the snow. If you live somewhere summer like or nice out all year, I say you can't go wrong. You won't use it forever, but at least the first 3-6 months often enough. When your oldest is about 2.5, you will probably not use it, as often. In addition, if you need to tote a bunch of stuff with you when you go out, the double stroller can store that stuff below for you. As your youngest gets older, you will have less stuff to carry. Its great for going to the mall, so you don't have to carry a diaper bag around for two kids. I think it is well worth the money.

For me it isn't about the older one wanting to ride instead of walk it is about containing both kids at once when I am out and about. My kids are two and a half and four and a half and we all walk most of the time. However, if I need to run errands I put them both in the stroller with a snack and I can get stuff done with fewer interruptions and never have to worry about losing sight of one of them.

I have kids that are 21 months apart and even though my daughter (was 2 in Jan) and can walk very well, I got a double. There is no way I could do half the things I do with out it. I did A LOT of research and tried everyone out that I could. I ended up with the Phil & Teds double. it can hold an infant and a toddler, 2 toddlers or just one or the other (second seat detaches to use as a simple single. It folds almost flat and can be turned using one hand.

I also have two children and was in the same situation I had bought a double stroller and only used it maybe 5 times . It was a front to back one and there hard to push and tough to make turns ! The Good advantage was when my oldest tried running off i can stick him right in. For the most part he always walked ! So there are good and bad advantages to double strollers ! Congrats and Good Luck

I never like how enormous all the double strollers are. They are ridiculous to push and store, and I'm with you, my older kids always like to walk independantly. I've tried them all and the sit-and-stands, and my best set up is a smaller size stroller with a large basket (for my littlest one and all her gear) and a stroller board (they are called "board buggy" and other brands on amazon.com) that can attach or detatch on a walk if the bigger kids need a little help to pick up the pace. Good luck!

I'd say it all depends how much you walk. Mine was 2 1/2 when my little one was born and I got a double stroller. I have to walk to and back form school/preschool 3 times a day and that equals to 3 miles. That is if I don't need to go to the grocery store or the Post Office or else I top the 5 to 7 miles a day. It's all a question of need. If you just go for a stroll around the block and your older one like to walk, then you might not need the double stroller. Good luck in making your decision.

Bah! No stroller,wear the little one,single strollers are a huge bother and I can imagine a double would just be way too much bulk to tote around. check out mobywrap.com

[deleted account]

its up to you if u get the stroller but i enjoy the double stroller even know all of mine walk because if we go to an event like the fair or something i can put all the crap they pick up in it and we use it like a time out chair for those who cant seem to behave themselves or stay with us and just in case one of them or two get tired of walking then they have a place to sit and i dont have to listen to the wining of my feet hurt or im tired can we sit or something of that sort but i enjoy the space to stuff everything they like to pick up inside the stroller

My daughter was born 6 days before my son turned two. I loved having a sit-n-stand. Target has one thats fairly inexpensive or buy one at a consignment sale for $60. Most of the new ones come with a bar that can adjust to carry infant car seat. Most Two- year-olds don't really have the stamina to endure long outings to the zoo, etc where you might need to carry "stuff" and your children. Plus I loved mine for light shopping: it kept my toddler and baby contained when I navigated dangerous parking lots while entering a store. That's my take.

Another thing I forgot to mention, I think that at 2 years and up they get tired of sitting, they want action. My son won't stay in the stroller, he is always getting off.

I lost $150 on a tandem stroller that converts into a sit and stand. I used it once. My son is 2 1/2 and my baby is 2 months. I would suggest that you buy either a single stroller or a stroller frame where you could just snap the carseat and go! I have the frame and it is sooo easier this way. My toddler also walks most of the time, it gives him a good exercise and this way he get tired and burns all of his energy (he is a handful :)) Whatever you decide to do is up to you. Good luck!

Yes its worth it. You will find yourself needing it more than you thought. My son will be 2 in october and my daughter is 4 months old, we use the double stroller for walks or when we go to a store that doesnt have carts...like the mall. He loves sitting in the front and looking at everything. They are expensive depending where you get it. My sister got hers at a yardsale and its in good shape.

I have a sit and stand stroller. I don't regret getting it especially when I want all the kids in the same place. Its so hard especially when going to doctors appointments and my 3 year old wants to skip all around especially when we have to cross a road or walk from the parking lot to the office. She also gets tired for example in the mall and I cannot think of carrying her as well as push the stroller. Just give it some time after the baby is born, if you feel the need, you can always buy it. Good luck

The stroller comes back...the novelty of walking wears off by 3! I used a kiddie board that attached to the rear axle of my stroller and then got a double jogging stroller for $80 using Craigslist. The combo works well for me.

I have a 3 year old and a 10 month old.When we had xander, Tyler would be reallyfunny about it. Most of the time he wouldnt want to be in a stroller but then there were some time when he would.
We decided when we had the baby to get a sit n stand stroller. In my opinion, it wasn't worth it just because my 3 year old never want to be in the stroller at all anymore and it takes up a lot of room in the trunk of the car.

I agree with what Nicole said... you know your son best , so just go with your gut and if you need to invest in one once the baby arrrives, then you will know.

I have 2 daughters a 2year old and an almost 1 year old and I have to tell you my double stroller has been my saviour!! I use it alot, yes my 2 year old can walk but when you are in a crowded shopping centre you don't want to watch a 2 year old whilst you have to stop to fix something for your infant or baby. When I arrive home late with the kids and both of them have fallen asleep in the car I put them both in the stroller and push them inside the house rather than waking my 2 year old and making her walk. My 2 year old decided when my other daughter was born that if I was carrying the baby then I should carry her too, so that was easy fixed they both went in the stroller and that was that.

I bought a Valco ion for 2, it was inexpensive, much lighter than all the rest (10kg) and it holds children from newborn up to 20kg (both sides) and it fits in every door and store! and it looks like this little pod rather than an ugly side by side umbrella stroller.

I highly recommend it, it just makes looking after 2 when you are out that little bit easier and thus keeping you that little bit more sane. And that my friend is priceless :)

I have a son turning 3 in July and a daughter 1 in June. I tried a double stroller that I borrowed from a friend and found that it worked well for my daughter but my older son wanted to walk most of the time. So I ended up pushing around a huge stroller that was harder to move around than a single. I ended up giving the stroller back and getting a backpack with a frame for my daughter instead. My daughter loves it and it allows me to be hands free with my son and if he wants to ride in a stroller I can push him at the same time. The backpack is really comfortable and the weight sits on your hips so you have no back pain like you would think. This might not work for everyone, but it works for us.
