in my opinon anyways. with my first i bought that chunky stroller with matching car seat. then we bought a jogging stroller cause i live on a farm and regualer strollers dont cut the cake. then i bought another light weight stroller cause when i was preggers with my second i needed a small stroller to get in and out of the docs office with. then after baby i bought a double stroller cause i had two. and you know what ive come to discover.
i wish i bought a snap and go by graco with my first for 60 bucks! it would have worked great up until number was born, then maybe a double snap and go for a few buck more. i dont use my bulky/jogger/or double anymore.

I have the one that the car seat snaps into and that can also be a regular stroller. I absolutely love it and use it all the time.

When my son was born, we bought the stroller/car seat combo, and we used it all the time. We had no car then, so we took the bus everywhere, and that stroller definatly had some miles on it. When my daughter was born, we bought a double stroller, but it was so hard to push, and just a pain in everyway imaginable, that I think we used it twice.

We then bought 2 umbrella strollers, which were great.

We just recently bought a sit n stand, because we got annual passes to Disneyland, and kids get tired of walking. It is just as hard to push as the double and impossible to turn!! I am thinking about just using the 2 umbrella strollers next time we go.

I had the stroller carseat combo for DS. I used it a lot when he was really small. I'm actually going to sell the stroller part at a yardsale Saturday. I have a good larger umbrella type that I use for DS now that I love. I'll get a double stroller for when the baby is born.

you know i never carried a lot with me... thats prob. why i think th ebulky for me is useless. i love my lightweight i use it alot more, it doesnt carry as much, but it hold everything i need for two kids. i also dont carry a diaper bag, i throw everything i need into my oversized purse. one less thing to carry i guess. i was talking with my hubby and actually change my mind about the jogger, they are really great to have if your a beach person! i dont jog so much use to me that way. they can just go where other strollers cant! still i think icould have gotten by with out my bulky single. double stroller?? i dont know on that one.... its just difficult to push around, but talk about storage!

I hated my big bulky stroller that came with the carseat too. Also hate the umbrella stroller, Holden's just too darn big for it.

he seems to like the double I bought, but he still seems a little big for it
