Up until about a month ago I was operating under the delusion that I could get away with using a double stroller for only about six months until Katie turned three. A couple of shopping experiences with Katie
I dragged Bryan to a baby store today after realizing that the Baby Trend Sit and Stand stroller that I picked up at Target yesterday wasn't going to work for me. It was bulky, it was fincky to fold, and it looked like Katie didn't have the balance necessary to just sit on the little bench or stand on the back of the stroller without the possibility of falling off. I wasn't sure if I'd find anything I liked but I wanted to see what my options were. As luck would have it, they had a Joovy Caboose Ultralight Too on display. The stroller comes with an adaptor to hold pretty much any infant carrier seat, a second seat that looks like it will work for Katie, and a nicely sized canopy. Best of all, it folds up beautifully and isn't incredibly heavy. I'm pretty sure I found my stroller. The quality of the stroller is much nicer than the Baby Trend stroller and I feel like it has greater versatility. I'm going to head back to the store with Katie later this week to test drive it with her in it and also to see how well the car seat I plan on using fits.
Who knows, maybe this whole double stroller thing won't be as bad as I think. Honestly, of all the things to worry about with getting ready for a new baby, the stroller issue has to be the biggest one.
