The best sit & stand strollers

The addition of a second child adds to the joy when going out with family. Soon that initial joy comes with the need to use advances in technology. Sit and stand strollers are made for parents who have an older child that wants to stand while riding and a younger child who sits in the stroller 1. There are many brands, so do your research to find the best.

Different Styles

You will find that there are many combinations available to those looking for a sit and stand stroller. The traditional sit and stand stroller has a normal seat in the front and a platform behind the seat for another child to stand and ride. When the older child does not want to stand, he can also relax and sit down behind the front seat. There is also an option that comes with two seats for both children to sit down. This option allows the back seat to be removed, making room for one child to stand in the back.

Baby Trend Sit-N-Stand Double

The Baby Trend Sit-N-Stand Double has the same features as traditional sit and stand strollers 1. It gets the name "double" because it has a full second seat with a canopy. The rear seat makes it possible for two children to sit in the stroller at one time. The front seat is built for your infant car seat to be placed directly into it, with a five-point child restraint safety harness. The back seat can be removed for a child to stand up and ride. This model comes with a foot-activated rear brake, covered parent organiser with cup holders and a large storage basket to hold things for parents and children.

Joovy Caboose Ultralight

The Joovy Caboose Ultralight is one of the best sit and stand strollers on the market 1. The front seat of the stroller is car seat-compatible, making it easy to move children from the car to the stroller. Behind the front seat is a platform for the second child to stand on and ride or sit down. The stroller can carry two children at once, but since they are not side by side it takes up less space when moving around in public. The lightweight frame is sturdy for the children but light enough to fold and carry for parents.

Safety Tips

When looking around for a sit and stand stroller it is good to research brands, manufacturers and the stroller. You will find a wide variety of styles and reviews about each. Check into the building materials, weight limits and ability to manoeuvre the stroller in tight spaces. Look for a stroller that has a solid foot brake and plenty of storage that is built out of your way. Find a stroller that allows you to put your car seat directly into it. Search for a stroller that can be easily folded and put away when getting children into the car.
