    Re: All terrain stroller where the child can sit up well?

    What about the new Chicco Activ3? It looks like the seat sits very upright. Honestly, if I'd seen it before I bought my BOB, I might have gotten the Activ3 instead. I don't really jog with mine so I don't really need 16" wheels.

    Re: All terrain stroller where the child can sit up well?

    He isn't currently riding in the NextFit ATM. The 15 month old is borrowing it as we're doing two trips back to back and I'm too lazy to reinstall my CCO in between them. But he gets mad everytime we get in and he sees his brother gets to ride in his seat and he has to ride in the Foonf. He still fits well in it when he gets to ride in it and prefers it to his other seats. I don't miss our Radian at all at this point.

    I have a similar problem with my newer BOB but I was able to push the back forward from behind and wedge it there with the extra material. My
    3 y/o is able sit sit upright enough to see around her now.

    Updating to say I ordered the baby jogger summit x3 and holy cow the seats are night and day. The seat might almost be TOO firm LOL. No bum sinking into the basket and the basket is HUGE. I feel like the seat it a little narrower and it's a bummer that it doesn't have little pockets for sippie cups but overall I like it an awful lot.

    Waiting on a versa too because I have to compare them all.

    Love to know what you think of all of them. I have the newer edition double BOB and a Versa but I love to hear people's thoughts. I'm actually about to get an ABC Adventure Buggy and sell my BOB.

    Is that the crazy thing like a mountain buggy but where you can mount kids on the roof, too?

    Yep. I'll have 3 under 3 and I walk for exercise so I decided to go for the triple. I'm sure it will draw a completely unnecessary amount of attention but I'm still excited.

    I wanted to get the double valco with the 3rd seat but my husband talked me out of it.

    I hear the push is bad so that may be a blessing. That's the main reason I decided to try the ABC instead.

    I've yet to push a Valco that had a "bad" push. Obviously any double made into a triple and carrying the weight of three children is going to take more strength to push than a single. The ABC strollers are really nice!

    I had a single with the extra seat for a while and it could be tippy in the wrong situation. My girls fought like crazy in it which was the bigger issue. I figured the double would be more stable + with the extra seat centered and not blocking anyone's view, MAYBE it would work out.
