Baby Trend Sit and Stand DX Stroller Travel System

Hi ladies. I have a two year old and am expecting a new baby girl this November. I thought of getting a double stroller either side by side or tandem. I am reluctant to get either because they seem so bulky and hard to maneuver. My two year old son is not really into the stroller except for when we take long walks or when he gets really tired. So I am thinking of getting a Baby Trend Sit and Stand travel system stroller. My new baby can sit in the front and my two year old can sit or stand at the back.

I wonder if any moms out there have owned this Baby Trend stroller model and if you can give me some feedback on it I would appreciate it.

What can I do next?

I LOVED mine. It worked great. My son was 3 when his sister arrived. I wasn't sure how much it would get used since we were pretty well past the stroller stage. I found myself using it all the time. My son felt like a big kid since he could get on and off (we did have to practice this a little, so he wouldn't just randomly jump off). And since he could stand, it was never an argument to get him to cooperate. I kept mine much longer than we really needed it. It was fantastic for crowded places like festivals and fairs. I would have my five year old stay on the stroller and never worried about losing him in a crowd. My son will be six in November. I just gave it up last month. I bought mine used on craigslist. It was the best $45 I spent for our new baby.

I have one that I got when my son was born. I really haven't used it as much as I thought I would. I really only use it at the zoo, the mall (like I EVER go there with kids??? I'm not crazy!) or at Sea World or other amusement park. It's pretty big to keep in the car all of the time, so I really only use it when I know that I'm going somewhere where they will have to walk for long periods. I'm sure we've gotten our use out of it, but I'm not convinced it was worth the money. I was very blessed that my friends gave me a gift card to purchase it, so I didn't have to buy it.

Also, as the kids get older (mine are 3 and 5.5 now), it gets really hard to push and steer with both of them on it. We're just about done with ours and will probably try to sell it. Maybe you could get a used one on Craig's List? I won't say I hated it because it WAS convenient for when we used it, but it wasn't something I would recommend for every day. I wore my son in a baby Bjorn or sling for the first several months and just let my daughter ride in the single stroller. By then, she was old enough to walk and he rode in the single. That was much easier for shorter trips. Hope this helped!

When I was considering this style stroller, I thought the Joovy Caboose seemed like a much better option than the Sit n Stand. Check that one out and you might like it more - I think it's a little smaller and less awkward.

I ended up getting a City Micro (similar to the City Mini) and really like that for times when I want both my kids in strollers - usually only when I am exercising or going to Disneyland. My kids are 4 years and 10 months.

You might also like the Phil & Ted's, where the seats stack on each other, so they don't really take up any more room than a single stroller and can easily be just a single for times when your son doesn't want to go in it (I think the second seat is easily removed).

I have one and use it a lot. It's not really heavy for such a big stroller so I just keep in the back of my Mazda CX-9 and use it for trips to the library, mall or museum/zoo. I got it from my neighbor whose kids are 4 yrs apart and she said she almost never used it. My kids are 20 months apart and I've found it very handy.

I have one but really don't care for it. The sidewalks in my nieghborhood are not always handicap accessible so it can be very difficult to get the stroller back on the sidewalk from the street. I wish I would of gotten a double jogger.
