Joovy Caboose or Baby Trend Sit-n-Stand?
Our son will be just over two years old when our new baby is born. It's tough to get him to ride in the stroller now for longer than a few minutes, so I'm thinking about a sit and stand type stroller that will accommodate a Graco Snugride car seat and an independent toddler.
I've researched the Joovy and the Baby Trend (are there any others out there?) but am not sure which is the best. Any thoughts?

i first bought the joovy (this was a couple years ago, so maybe they changed their design) and returned it the next day. when we took it out, and our then youngest needed the front seat reclined, our older child didn't have enough room to sit on the back seat. so if the seat was laid down the other child either had to sit leaning forward or stand up. and since the front seat has to be laid back to allow for the infant carrier to snap on, we found it to be to big a problem. we then bought the baby trend one and love it. plenty of room for both kids to sit (and the front one lay back) cup holders etc for the parents, durable, i often maneuver it with one hand. that's just my opinion

This sounds like me last summer! I researched the same two and decided on the Joovy. Although the basket underneath is smaller, it's lighterweight and a smaller stroller altogether, which is what I was going for (I traded in my traditional double stroller).
Congrats on baby #2!
