Infant Sit and Stand Strollers
I'm a mom of a soon to be 2 year old and one little girl on the way in May. I am looking into the Sit n stand strollers where the infant car seat can fit up front. I have researched the Baby Trend ones and they don't fit my Graco Safe seat Infant car seat. I'm checking if anyone knows of any sit n stands that fit that particular car seat. Thank you.

My two year old daughter hated the sit and stand I had when her brother was born. She was too young for the back seat. There is no support, no way for her to rest. All sit n stands require the older child to be able to sit upright for long periods of time without back support. She was very uncomfortable plus there was no way to feed her in it if you were out and about since she could not balance her food on her lap while sitting upright. I tried it for two weeks and then sold it to a mother with a five year old and a newborn.
Get a tandem. They allow for a seat for both children. My evenflo tandem Take me Too could fit a car seat in either the front or back seat though I think the ones they have out now only accommodate an infant carrier in the front.
Trust me, a two year old is too young for the sit n stand. They are better suited to older children (maybe 4 and up).

I have a sit and stand stroller and it is baby trend. It is from First step ahead and it fits graco car seats. You have put the bar attachment across it. It is both a sit and stand or a double stroller which was fantastic when my older one was 2 and not quite ready to give up the stroller.

the ones at One Step Ahead fit the Graco. I dont have it, but plan on getting one when/if #2 comes along. they have 2, you need the "elite double" so that both can sit in it. it becomes a traditonal sit and stand when your eldest decides they just want to use the kick board to stand on.

I have the baby trend sit and stand and it fits the graco snug ride car seat. If the safe seat infant seat doesnt snap on the bar, there is a strap to strap the car seat in like you would in the car without the base.

I registered for the same one (one where the baby carrier is in front and my 2 yr old son would sit/stand in the back. A friend of mine told me no no no lol We ended up taking that off of the registry and putting this one on: https://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=32384...
it's more expensive, but the carrier snaps in securely and easily into the back seat (we have a graco too and tested it out at babies r us last night) and it's easy to manuever. I'm 34 weeks pregnant and was wheeling it all around with one hand. Lot's more storage too, for 2 kids thats needed times 2 lol the extended front seat has a weight limit of 50lbs too so it will last awhile.
Good luck and congratulations!!!

I would recommend the Joovy Caboose! My sister loved hers. It is a bit more heavy-duty than the rest, which also means it might be slightly heavier, but very manageable!! I see it as a sign that it will last that much longer! Good luck!

S., I had the babytrend sit and stand and it does fit the graco. It even clips right into it. There is also a strap for added security and safety. I must say that driving that thing is like driving a bus though. And putting a diaper bad below is difficult behind the toddler seat...you need to do it from the bottom/side. A girlfriend of mine has the fisher price one and she loves it and I borrowed it and love it too! My SIL has the joovy and the basket is nice but it is so...hmm....not comfy...user friendly but no cupholders and just not..cute...so hope that helps!
