Re: Double stroller for almost 4 year old? Just for long walks? Suggestions?

Yikes, so many idea's. I will have to check these all out.

It will just be stored in our garage, we have tons of room, so I'm not worried about lugging in and out of car or anything else.

Britax B-Ready with the second seat, check Craigs list, it is way too expensive new for the length of time you'll use it. It fits my big three year old and 16 month old great.

I live in a very walkable city & often will walk 6-8miles at a time running errands. I don't expect my almost 5yr old DD to be able to keep up & I'm not willing to stop walking errands. So, we have a double stroller that she fits comfortably in. It's a double Mtn Buggy & I LOVE it! She doesn't ride the entire time, but has the option.

I also have the baby jogger elite and now that my older doesnt want to sit in the seat I bought a fooat board that he rides on. It saves the day for extra long walks or places like the mall where he tends to wander, he's not much of a shopper.

My kids always walk, even several miles. That being said, I do have a Graco Ready2Grow for the 2 year old and newborn. Since the baby is not here yet, sometimes my 4 year old sits on the little platform seat. But usually still just walks.

I got a sit and stand stroller in case my 4 year old gets tired. which he always does...so he can hop on and off.

Re: Double stroller for almost 4 year old? Just for long walks? Suggestions?

I had the Baby Jogger double, bought 2nd hand. I don't know if it's still available though, but that thing was awesome. I'd fast walk my 5 and 3 yr olds in it for miles. It was exercise for me that I was after and while my 5 yr old could certainly walk, not at fast enough clip for me to feel like I was exercising.

this is a big reason DD still rides in the stroller. I don't have the luxury of going to a gym to exercise, so walking during the day pushing the kids in the stroller is my exercise.

I was going to suggest this stroller as well. The double isn't made anymore, but I tested the single out with my 4.5 year old child because he still naps. He fit in it quite well. My son is long torso and very tall for his age. He is also about 45 lbs-ish. No problems with the single, so I can just imagine that the double is just as good.

Good luck! And for those purposes, I don't think you are asking too much for your child to still ride. My

I don't think it's too much for him to ride either They would love it too! I don't really like gyms so this would be perfect for the 3 of us.

Don't you hate when they discontinue good stuff though.
