Maybe it's too early to be thinking about this, since we haven't had u/s or a HB or anything, but what's a really good double stroller? They all seem so expensive but since we'll have 2 under 2 I think it's important! I will also hopefully be babywearing one and using our single stroller, but I still want a double.

I don't know what brands are reallty good, but I have to say I love having a jogging stroller. I don't jog, but I walk alot. They are much more gentle for the kids, and for me on the cracked up sidewalks around here.

I'm sorry I don't have any experience, but we are looking for a double stroller as well. I'm going to make a decision based on wheels probably, and I think will go with a 'long' version instead of 'wide'.

I have a cheapo (all things are relative it was probably about $160) Graco that's a sit and stand that also has two seats and can fit a baby seat. I thought I wanted just a sit and stand because older dd was 4 but I've only ever used it with both seats. I plan to use it with a Graco infant carseats now. We took it to Disney and it worked out really well. It's not as nice as my friend's $600 stroller but it works.

It depends on what you are going to be doing with it. I use my stroller to work out/jog with, So I will be getting a double jogger. The one I prefer is the BOB Revolution Duallie. I tried 3 single jogging strollers before the BOB (because of price) and I wish I would have just bought the BOB in the first place. I have the BOB revolution single stroller now and LOVE it! So I am sold on BOB's brand and will be buying the BOB Revolution Duallie. It is spendy, but practically pushes it self. You have to weigh the pros and cons of all strollers and find what is worth it for you, and what is something you can live without Good Luck!

Oh that's something I didn't mention- my stroller is good for places that are flat which works for us because we're not outdoorsy people definitely wouldn't work on grass or anything.

We live in Alaska so lots of trails and outdoors stuff. Probably am going to have to just save up and consider it an investment!

Totally a bob!!! They are the best money can buy lol. Especially if you're going to be in trails and things where you need better wheels. I also liked my single baby trend jogger but I don't think they come in double.

I have a double chariot jogger(can be used multiple ways). I run a lot, so thats why I bought it. If we go to the mall, I still wear my almost 2 yr old and my 3.5yr old goes in a stroller. Not sure my plan once baby is born!

This is what I had when my girls were little. We used the crap out of it. It was great in grass and on cement equally. I got mine off of craigslist for like just over a $100 so I got it for a steal

I have a contours options double stroller.. It has two removable seats that you can turn to face each other, away from each other, etc. It also has an attachment that you can use to hook an infant seat to. I recently got a double jogging stroller & I love that too!!

I have the sit and stand double stroller, but when I had my 2 under 2, I wore my baby and used an umbrella with my middle son.

I've have a friend who has the City Mini double stroller and loves it.
