Double stroller help

I was hoping someone might be able to help me with double stroller help. Baby #2 is due in August and my daughter will be just over 2 years old. I'm on the fence on getting a double stroller...I'm not sure if I'll really need it or not and the ones I like are so expensive!

I have my eye on the Baby City Mini Double jogger - any suggestions of good places to look? Every place I've looked online seems to sell it for $399.99 - including ebay. I'm also interested in finding a used one, but no luck on Craigslist so far - any other suggestions where I could look?

Or - any other suggestions on a stroller? It needs to be light and easy to use!

I just ordered a Baby trend Sit n Stand. We have only tried it out in the house and at BRU but we love it so far.

Good luck mama. There are so many choices and everyone loves or hates them all for a different reason.

Re: Double stroller help

I don't think there is any double that's light and easy to use. Like the PP said, every stroller has users who love it or hate it. A lot of it depends on what you're using it for, i.e. walking, jogging, strolling around the mall, etc.

Re: Double stroller help

I have this one: , and it has served us well for the last 2 years! Just a little under a year after we got it, DH very roughly went over a curb at an awkward angle with the weight of both kids on one of the front wheels, and it, of course, snapped! Luckily I'd kept the small booklet that comes with it, and when I called customer service, they just asked for my address and sent me a new one! No fee, nothing.

Other than that, it's been wonderful. I was able to use DS's carrier with it 'til he got old enough for the seat, and even now if one of them falls asleep in it, I can lay his/her seat back totally flat for rest. The umbrellas on it are also really good sized, so if sun's an issue for you, that's great, too. And, the basket underneath holds a good bit.

GL with the hunt!
