Who has a sit & stand stroller?

Any negatives to it for a 6 month old and 2 1/2 year old? Other than the fact that the one in back cant sleep in it... Im so sick of my Duoglider and it has various "health issues" so Im considering dumping it for something easier. TIA

Re: Who has a sit & stand stroller?

We have one for our 6 month DD and 3 1/2 DS, and we love it. It's longer than a standard, single stroller, of course, but it's shorter than a full double stroller. We can put the car seat in the stroller, so there's no problem with her in there, and DS likes it too. By the time one child is old enough to sit in the "back seat", they're probably a little old to take a nap while they're being pushed around in the stroller.

I have an older sit & stand stroller. The only issues I've found is that the one that's in the stand section wants to be up front. At 2.5 I would think they would still may nap. I know Joseph will fall asleep if he had the chance.

My girlfriend has had tremendous luck with her double combi. In fact I would buy one now if I could find a used one.

Looovvveee mine! Best thing ever. Lauren is now sitting up front, she is out of her infant car seat. Andrew loves his autonomy, he more than likely sits and I buckle him in. If he stands, he's too likely to just decide to get off.

We got ours from One Step Ahead and I can tell you there is a big difference between the one I have and the Joovy or Baby Trend ones you can buy in BRU, BBB or even Target. The OSA one is a bit longer in length, but that is much better because when the front seat is in the 45-degree recline, you can still use the jump seat. In the other models, when the front seat is in recline, the jump seat is blocked. Makes a huge difference. Plus, with the slightly longer length, it has a bigger basket.

I don't have any complaints. There are times when I am folding it and the front wheels will swing in the wrong direction and makes folding it impossible, but that's about it. The front seat doesn't recline a whole lot, but Lauren's had no problems sleeping in it. I just wish it reclined more.
