karmalkween:  my nephews are 3 years apart. My sister has a city mini double that she does use quite a bit but definitely doesn’t find it convenient. She also has the glider board for her uppababy that she prefers and my nephew is usually pretty happy standing on that as opposed to sitting.

karmalkween:  While I only have 1 child he is 2.5 and I honestly couldn’t see him wanting riding in a stroller to much anymore. He rather walk.  I would maybe get like MrsWBS said a glider board

Can you use some sort of wrap or carrier to carry your newborn when your toddler gets sick of walking?

I have 2 under 2’s and use my double everyday 4-5 times. My daughter was 3 when my middle was born and she used to walk I got a buggy board that I gave to a friend as I never used it.

I would look into the sit and stand strollers/prams/buggies. I have heard great things about them.

I had two children under 2 so a double stroller was a must. For all that, my oldest son didn’t use his half of the stroller much once he was 2.5.

My granddaughters are 3 and 7 months. Even when the little one was born my oldest granddaughter (then 2 and three quarters) was out of a stroller but my DIL bought a buggy board just in case. It’s actually only been used once or twice since my oldest granddaughter is a very independent little girl who loves to walk everywhere. A double stroller would have been a huge waste of money.

I guess you need to base your decision on how enthusiastic a walker your 3 year old is and how much walking you do everyday.
