The best in­ex­pen­sive dou­ble stroller

Cecil Whig - - & & -

Dear Mary: I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate your rec­om­men­da­tion on the baby stroller. I love the Sum­mer In­fant 3D lite Con­ve­nience Stroller (your pick for the best in­ex­pen­sive stroller). I just found out we will be adding two more grand­ba­bies to our fam­ily. Do you have a rec­om­men­da­tion for the best in­ex­pen­sive, light­weight stroller for two chil­dren? — Pam

Dear Pam: I’m not sure whether you are look­ing for a stroller to ac­com­mo­date one baby and one older child or two ba­bies. So first, let me tell you what I have done.

I re­cently pur­chased the Graco Room­for2 Click Con­nect Stand and Ride Stroller (about $140), which is just per­fect for one baby to sit and ride and an older child to stand and ride. I can’t tell you how per­fect this is for my cur­rent needs.

Your men­tion of two new ba­bies leads me to be­lieve that you want a dou­ble stroller for two new­borns. I have two rec­om­men­da­tions for you, de­pend­ing on your needs and bud­get. The Delta Chil­dren City Street Side by Side Stroller is fan­tas­tic. It folds up so easily, and it has big, sturdy wheels and sun­shades. Both seats have three-point har­nesses. The stroller fits easily through a 30-inch door open­ing. The one draw­back is that the seats do not re­cline. Both ba­bies must re­main seated up­right. At $60 this is a fan­tas­tic bar­gain.

If re­clin­ing seats are a must-have, take a look at the Baby Trend Ex­pe­di­tion Dou­ble Jog­ger Stroller (about $180). It’s a bit heav­ier and big­ger, but it col­lapses easily. Both seats have five-point safety har­nesses and ac­com­mo­date kids up to 50 lbs. each. This stroller has rub­ber pneu­matic bi­cy­cle tires, which means you can stroll around the block, tear around a big amuse­ment part for hours or jog up and down moun­tain trails (you do that, right?).
