Ok i need some stroller advise.


My daughter will be 4 1/2 when I have my 2nd child, Im shopping for strollers and I know ill be keeping a light weight stroller in my car for short shopping trips etc. and a big stroller at home for walks around the neighborhood. My moms house is a mile from mine so i often walk there and my daughter did use the stroller this past summer for those trips.


My question is, should I buy the stroller with the seat on the back. Do you know the ones im talking about? its like a regular stroller and then has a seat in the back for toddlers.


Do you think at 4 and 5 maybe even 6 shell still get use of it? I dont wanna have a huge bulky stroller if its not nesesary....what do you think? I know how much kids change in a year so im not sure if a 5 year old would actually sit there and like that.


Thank you in advance!


this is the one im thinking about,

It really is going to depend on your child. Lindsay(5) will not sit for long periods of time in a stroller. She has preferred to walk for a long time. The stroller was more for me to store stuff when we were out for long periods of time. This summer I think I saw my last use of one at our local amusement park though I am going to rent one if we go to some place like Disneyland. She refused to sit in it at all and it was just used as a cart for our towels and drinks. I missed having it at the mall this holiday season. It was so nice to have a place to store our packages and hold the drinks, plus it gave her a place to sit if the lines were long.

Now her big brother would probably be happy to have a place to sit and ride even at 9.

Thanks for you input! Taras the type of kid that just wants to do the oposite of what i want/need her to do, so its hard to put her in a catagory lol! Ive decided to just do ahead and get it, its not like a stroller stroller it just has a little seat on the back, its called a sit and stand stroller. I figured I have to buy one anyway there isnt much of a price difference and id rather have it then not. I know tara will use it and i defffinetly dont want to have to carry her and push a baby.
