Need Opinion on Sit N Stand Strollers
I am looking to purchase a sit n stand stroller. Does anyone have an opinion on the Joovy sit n stand versus the Baby Trend sit n stand? Or does someone have a different brand that they absolutely love? Would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks.

I bought this one from Target. Nice price! I think there is an attachement for an infant seat - but I never had this stroller when I had an infant seat. This is my second sit and stand stroller. The first one got ruined on an airplane. When I bought the second one, I had a 6, 4 and 1 1/2 year old. I knew I was nearing the end of needing a stroller, but could not give this one up!!! It is great with all of the bigger kids. I can actually manage to get all three kids on, if I have to. One sits in front, one on the bench in back, and one standing right in front of them. I find it to be light weight and rolls easily.

We just got back from a week long trip to disney with our Joovy Ultralight......we LOVE it!!! My oldest is 3 and the little one just turned 8 months. I recommend it over the sit n stand and the regular Joovy. Due to the larger sun shade, and the weight....it folds up pretty thin, I can fit it in the back hatch of my saturn vue with no problem. Any other questions......send me a message.

Hi! I have a Joovy Caboose Ultralight. It is working well for us (I have a 5 mo old and a 3 yr old). We mostly use it for short trips. My older son seems to like it. I would not recommend it for all day long trips as the sit in the back is not comfortable if you have a baby carrier in the front. The other thing that you have to consider is that your older child can not nap on it (mine doesn't nap anyway). The basket is pretty small. Other than those points, I recommend it.

We have the sit and stand from one step ahead. It was great b/c it was a double stroller first and then we coverted it to the sit and stand. Most places don't offer both options in one stroller so that feature is quite nice. I do caution however that the baskets underneath are pretty useless as it's very difficult to get ANYthing in them. The rubber tires are nice and it moves easily. I just feel like I am pushing a semi compared to our single stroller!
