Put together the stroller tonight!
 
I am so jazzed. We got out stroller delivered today and put it together, such a breeze! I love it so much, it has given me a little umph of excitement for my little bubbs. DH said he can't wait till those seats are filled. :heart: Now we continue to wait till the 22nd for the next u/s... give it up munchkins! :impatient:

I was going to ask if i can see a pic too .. I really like it,
I ended up with a jogger stroller too cause I like how easy it moves .. can car seats attach to it? ... My twins had the eddie bauer double travel system, I loved that the car seat fit right in it but it was super bulky big and hard to maneuver.

YAY!! I don't have twins, but with them being so close in age...I will be getting a double! Many friends of mine have the new graco double and love it!

yes, the city select can accommodate a few different models of infant car seats--you just have to buy the adapter. we're getting the maxi cosi mico car seats, which work really well with this stroller.

Thanks, we will find out by the end of this week I have a DR appt and a back up appt for a gender u/s at a local place. I still love this thing and I'm not even using it yet! We got 2 carseat adapters so we will be able to snap in the ones we choose, I think Graco snugride 30's.

We got it on amazon.com as a bundle w/second seat, it was cheaper by like $12 to do that than buy them separately and free shipping. not a super crazy 'deal' but I'm happy with it, they care really quick. The adapters were from another company and they aren't here yet.

I saw someone at the park the other day with that stroller & I really like it. Hmmm.. I keep changing my mind on what I want now LOL

Not to be all up in your "business", lol, but those seats don't fit small babies well. And well, with twins...you can probably anticipate small'er" babies. The weight on them doesn't even start until 5lbs and usually 4lbs is the weight (if all else is well) they are released at. Just a thought :) Even the lowest harness height is half an inch more than other seats that are designed for small"er" babies. That means, the harness could very well not fit them correctly, and be above their itty bitty shoulders instead of at or below. Sorry if I stepped on toes, but I did want to just throw this bit of info out since there is SO many choices :)

thanks for letting me know! i'll definitely look into this. for some reason i was under the impression they were BETTER for smaller babies (i read a lot of reviews saying that babies grow out of them much sooner than other infant car seats).

the good news is we're planning a home birth, so if all goes as planned they possibly won't even be using their car seats until several weeks after birth. also, our babies are growing at an astounding rate--they are in the 93rd percentile in size (not compared to other twins, compared to singleton babies!), so i'm pretty confident that they'll make it to term and be at LEAST 6 lbs each! gosh, if they keep growing at this rate does it mean they'll be 8 or 9 lbs each?! ;)

we obviously won't be able to have a home birth if i go into labor before 37 weeks and/or if they're measuring small.......so, we'll see what happens, but so far so good!

You're welcome :) Feel free to PM me if you have any questions! And we are doing a home birth too! Exciting!

*lurking*

I love that stroller! I get most of my baby gear at Albeebaby.com. They have free shipping and most of the time their prices are better than Amazon :)

Our twins were 6lbs2oz and 5lbs5oz when they came home, and the Graco Snugride 30s fit them perfectly...just throwing that out there since you were mentioning seats for twins!

thank you for the website and info on the twin weights!

BTW, AWEs on that pic of yours. :) Rosy cheeks!

Graco and chicco fit small babies well :) Even at 5/6lbs, sometimes the heights can be an issue making sure the harness is at or below their shoulders. They also have a lot of growing room (the graco 30/35 version) and come with a cheaper price tag. They have been the 2 that I have always used. User friendly and super easy to install :)
