Re: 2yo and newborn, I'll need a double stroller, right?

we use our double stroller like crazy (ds was 2 when my daughter was born)... we got a sit and stand so that he can sit or stand on the back... sometimes he walks but rarely... he likes the fact that he can just hop on the back anytime... he's 3 in 5 days and still loves the stroller.

I did see the Mountain Buggy. It's on sale on Jogging Stroller.com too. I was looking at the Urban. I do like the separate canopies, but that's not a deal breaker. I emailed someone from Joggingstroller.com and she said the Bumbleride Indie Twin is more bulky when folded than the Bob and isn't quite as rugged. I may end up going with the Revolution Duallie, now. Decisions, decisions!!

Re: 2yo and newborn, I'll need a double stroller, right?

My kids are 21 months apart. A Bob Revolution Duallie was the only thing I bought for #2. It is wonderful. I wear #2 a lot but it is nice to be able to put him down in a safe place at the playground so I can run around and play roughly with the older child. If you take a long walk every day, I think you need a double stroller. DS1 can't walk more than a mile and he is too heavy to carry on our long walks.

I got a great deal on my Bob during the REI sale, it was 20% off list price with free shipping to a local store.

When does REI have these sales?? I found out that our local bicycle shop orders than for $529, so that's not too bad either (and I get to support small business.)

REI has th Dualle .. think that is the one your asking about.

We signed up for their newsletter or some kind of thing that they offer where when you do you get.. I think.. 15-20% off your purchase. I just remember it made for a huge savings of around $100 I think.

It was told to us by one of the guys that worked there.. but this was around 3+ years ago when we first got ours. You still might ask about it thought, it's worth it.
