Have you decided what kind of stroller you are going with ? Since i had my last baby they came up with some snap and go stollers and alot are smaller then they use to be making them more convenient,

What kind of stroller do you have your eyes on??

I purchased 1 of every type of stroller when I was pregnant, not knowing which I'd like. Ended up almost exclusively using a simple stroller frame to snap the infant carrier into for the first 6 months, after which my big guy got so heavy, I had to switch to a convertible carseat, & then began using a slim but roomy Peg Pereggo ever since!

I hated the travel system I had with Elijah. Jakob was in Children's for 6 months after he was born and I was just 3 months away from having Jarrett so I never used the one I had for him. I bought a Jeep double stroller and it was like driving a tank. I want something that is easy to load in the car, easy to drive and looks cute. I haven't evrn started looking yet

Living in NYC, the stroller decision is like a car decision everywhere else.

It's either going to be Stokke Xplory (which I love but doesn't have a lot of storage area underneath), the UPPAbaby Vista (which I think may be the front runner), or the Bugaboo Cameleon. The DH and I haven't tried them out yet - but another large concern is going to be adjustable handles since I'm 5ft and he's 6'2"

Beck ...you have those names down pack. At least your one step ahead of the game.

I want some small but cute with lots of storage. I seen a few being pushed around the mall and wish i stopped the woman to ask what kind they were.

I have been looking into strollers. By the time the twins arrive my daughter will be 21 months so she would still need to be in the stroller a lot of the time so I was thinking of a twin stroller with a toddler seat attachment that goes onto the handles but its very expensive so i might just not buy one this time around haha.

With my first born, we got a Bugaboo Cameleon. It was great when we used it, but my son spent most of his time in the baby carrier. With #2, we needed a double stroller, so I bought the City Select by Baby Jogger. It's a fantastic stroller and I wish that I had bought it with my first because it maneuvers the same as a Bugaboo but can be converted to a double stroller. I knew I wanted more than one child so I wish I had had the foresight.
This time, we'll continue to use the City Select and I also had a double jogging stroller that we take on vacations and hiking. The baby will probably spend a lot of time in a baby carrier like my other two.

I want big wheels for easy going on dirt and rocks, and something neutral pattern. A 5 point harness buckle just like the car seats. One hand fold up is a must. A big basket for stuff and a cup holder for my bottle of water I always have with me.

I've got a Baby Jogger City Select. LOVE it! I got it when I was pregnant with my son.

The reason j picked it was if is one of the only double/single strollers that doesn't have the second child sitting in the basket. I wanted the Uppa Baby Vista but alas the second child is in the basket.

I have the glider board for the City Select so I will be able to use one atrolr with all 3 kids

Ok I'm happy to hear that two of you have the City Stroller and love it, because my mom won one for me! So that's what we'll be using.

Double jogging stroller. Used on Craigslist. Total behemoth, but absolutely necessary for the kind of "walking" we get to do around here...because THIS is where I live.

So yeah, it requires som massive all-terrain wheels to get by. No namby pamby "city" wheels for this girl.

Upside of living in BFE: ultimate solitude. ability to run around in one's underwear without having to close curtains. fresh air. hiking/hunting out one's back door.
Downside: no Red Robin or Target within 100 miles. Sigh...

Have a Chicco travel system an loved it with DD. thinking about maybe getting a Sit and Stand... Not sure yet. She rarely rides in a stroller now- and I assume she will even less by the time the baby's born- however... It would make it easer to keep track I her while we're out

Even if I just had one child I love the sit to stand. It gives them so many options to keep them from getting cranky while out and about.
