    double stroller

    You have all been so much help with choosing car seats for my kids so i am now asking for some help with a stroller for my lil boys. My son just turned one and the new lil man will be here in may. I have a mac quest sport i believe it is and i love it. I am pretty sure i want a side by side and i want it as narrow and as small as it can be. They all seam like tanks to me. It doesnt have to be a jogger as we dont off road much. What are your recommendations? thanks for the help

    If you like your Mac, you might like the Mac doubles. If you don't need something that folds that small, the Baby Jogger City Mini Double is a great push for a "mall" stroller. If you prefer something with air tires, I'd recommend a Valco or Mountain Buggy.

    I owned a Mac double Triumph and found it really really hard to push with unevenly weighted kids. I have a single and love it, but the double wasn't my thing.

    I sold it and bought a baby jogger city mini double and it is so amazing....I love it! In fact I'm currently buying a single GT because I don't use the double as much any more, and the push and fold on the city mini's are just so amazing!

    I also haven't heard great thing about the Mac doubles. The Valco Snap Duo would be another to consider. It's super lightweight.

    I like my Mac double just fine- when I need a double umbrella.

    Of course I tend to have lightweight kids only a few years apart in age in it, so the push hasn't been bad, for me.

    If I don't need a small fold, though, I choose something else. (I um... may have 4 double strollers.)
