The best inexpensive double stroller
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?).
