    Joovy sit and Stand or Phil and Ted double

    Baby #3 is going to arrive in Sept and I have been looking for a new double stroller. DS2 will be 2 when the new baby arrives so he will still need a stroller. DS1 will be 4 and might ride occasionally. I have the Baby Trend sit and stand but I don't really care for it. I have narrowed it down to the Joovy sit and stand and the Phil and Ted double. Which would be the best choice?

    I would go for the p&t. If you didn't like the sit and stand then I don't think you would care for the joovy much. Plus you can always use the p&t as a single and it pushes really nice plus the main seat can recline fully for an infant unlike the Joovy.

    I had it narrowed down to the Joovy and the P&T as well. After test driving the Joovy several times (DH tried it out, too) I just didn't like the handlebar. It was an awkward angle and not the right height. Hated it. Love our P&T3. DDs are 4 and 7 mo (3yr 5 mo apart). Also, when DD tried out the Joovy, she was insisting to be buckled in--Mommy, it's not safe! Um, I didn't realize she had actually been listening all those time I reminded her to sit down and let me do a buckle. She's tall and fits fine in the top jump seat (newborn/toddler moe) even with the sun shade down.

    What I like about this is when you're done using it as a double stroller, you still have an awesome single stroller. No problem with not having foot room in the back, even with a bag in the basket. We've put our too-heavy-but-we're-going-to-do-it-anyway DD in the back and not had any tipping problems.

    I think I even saw Right Start was having a special--free doubles kit with the purchase of a P&T. Here's a link to their website: http://www.rightstart.com/global/sto...strollers.html

    We got the extra hand bag and belt and it's a little large if an older child sits in the back. I end up taking it off and stuffing it in the basket so it doesn't bonk their head. I'd probably just get a clip-on cup holder instead. We also got the infant car seat adapter. It was okay. After I got the sunshade adjusted correctly the adapter just gave me fits and in desparation one time I put the seat on without the extra bar and it was still really sturdy. I wouldn't do that if the surface was at all uneven, but for a mall, it was fine.

    I haven't tried any of the sit-n-stands, I dont' think I would ever consider one. The front seat doesn't recline enough and the seatback is really short.

    My collection includes a fixed wheel jogger that worked great, a cheap umbrella stroller, a mid-range reclining umbrella stroller, and a relatively cheap double bike trailer/stroller. They all worked fine, but I'm hoping we can afford the P&T for the next baby. Since we're hoping for 2 more babies not more than 2yrs apart it seems like the most logical choice since it's a single that turns into a great double. You can't beat the versatility and it's soooo nice to push!

    For me full recline and seatback/canopy height are the biggest factors in choosing a stroller. I can only afford 1 good stroller, so it has to last a looong time.

    The new P&Ts are just starting to show up, here they're available for pre-order. More $ if you want the options of the top model, but they made some nice improvements.
