Stroller Advice Question

My little guy just turned 2. He has outgrown his stroller in length. His head is higher than the top of the seat. Not much of a problem except for when he wants to try to sleep in it. He will not lay back. So, I need to find a new stroller. Can anyone suggest a kind of stroller that will accomodate a taller child. (one that won't cost an arm and a leg, not sure how much longer he will actually ride in a stroller)

What can I do next?

You may want to try a jogging stroller (even if you don't jog). They are generally longer and in a somewhat recline position so a larger child is more comfortable sleeping while still being able to look out and see what's going on when he's awake. There are reasonably priced joggers out there, you don't have to spend a fortune on a Phil and Ted. Try a consignment or resale shop too.

We got an umbrella that isn't really an umbrella. Does that make sense LOL? It still has a basket under (for my junk LOL) and the sun shade on top. My daughter is 21 months and she's been in it for a few months now. It reclines back just far enough so if she were to want to take a nap, she could. I got it at Target for like $25 I think. Jeep makes one like that (minus the under compartment but it does come with detachable cargo bags and a parent cup holder). I can't remember the brand we bought...but I think you get the idea?

I love our Chicco "Umbrella" type stroller. I am 6feet tall, & my kids have followed. It may be a wee pricey, check on Ebay or yard sales.......

I agree with the other young lady. Jogging strollers tend to hold taller children and accomodate more weight as well. If you are interested I have a jogging stroller barely used that I am going to try and sell. Please contact me at [email protected]____.com if you are interested.

I really can't recommend a certain type, but if you don't want to pay alot, go to a resale or consignment shop where you can let him try them out. Ditto Kiddo in Bonita has quite a few outside their store all the time!
