Double Stroller?? - Bellevue,WA
So I am looking at a the BOB revolution double stroller for when baby number two is born. Both of my sisters have it and LOVE it. My only problem is my DS will be four when the baby is born so I afraid I going to spend a bunch of money on this stroller and won't end up using it because DS is to old for a stroller. So my question for you ladies is at what age did you child/children stop using/needing a stroller? I don't use a stroller all that often now except for on long excursions so I'm wondering if it is worth spending the money on a double stroller? Thanks for the advice!!

I think you'd do better to get the sit and stand stroller. It won't look weird if you only have one in there and it's more compact and easier to use.

I pretty much quit using our stroller with my oldest when she was about 2.5. We use it occasionally now, but the wagon more often when we go to the Fair or whatnot. You might consider a sit and stand stroller instead or a standing platform that you can attach to any regular stroller. That might be a better match for your older one that will probably want to walk more.

I use it more to confine the older one (2.5yo) than anything. When I need to tend to the baby and can't worry about chasing DS, I strap him in.
We have a City Jogger Micro Double and it's awesome. Paid about $200.

I would get a sit and stand stroller. 4 is too old to be sitting in a stroller in my opinion.

We have a sit and stand stroller. It think it's great for kids that only need a stroller sometimes (ages 3-5). My oldest is 5 and never uses a stroller, but did up until baby #3 was born. Maybe you could get a sit and stand--they're only $150 and perfect for kids who are about ready to outgrow a stroller.

we also got a sit and stand and other than Disneyland and maybe 4 other walks we never use it. IDK if I would spend that kinda $$ but maybe look for something used.

Great question...totally personal preference! My kids are 3 years and 4 months apart. When we had the second, we opted to not get a double (we figured we would wait to see if we would want it, and then get it, rather than invest right away). I decided that when the baby was really little, I could use the Ergo if we were someplace that my son would be in the stroller...He really very rarely sat in the stroller post baby being born, so I never felt the need to use a double - and am glad that I didn't invest! I can't imagine a 4 year old sitting in a stroller much (We have even taken two trips to disney world since baby was born - one single stroller was perfect for us).

IMO, it would be a serious waste of $$.
I think you are right in that your 4 yr old would be too old for it.
