SIT AND STAND STROLLERS
When the sit and stand double strollers were first offered at the market parents didn’t know a lot about them and just kept on with the different task to take a baby and a toddler out for a walk and just rush home when the toddler got tired. Nowadays things are different, the sit and stand double strollers are widely known and there are a lot of parents that can’t even imagine their daily life without one.
After this little introduction, you already know that the sit and stand double strollers were especially designed for families with kids with an age gap from 2 to 5 years. The design includes a frame with a seat for the baby at the front and a platform where the toddler can ride standing or it can quickly turn into a bench if the toddler wants to sit while you push the stroller around. The best feature of the sit and stand double strollers, apart from the smart design, is that they are lightweight and very easy to fold and unfold in order to put them in, or take them out from the car.
Because of their affordable price, a lot of families actually use them as a second, easy to put in the car stroller and they have a single or a sturdier double stroller to use as a main one. Usually , the sit and stand double strollers come with a seat for the baby at the front and offer the ability to attach a car seat if your baby is newborn. Some models even include the option to attach the car seat at the back in a parent facing position and let your toddler ride at the front of the stroller. Other models offer you the option to turn the platform into a proper seat for your toddler instead of just getting them to sit on a bench.

First and the most important is the age gap of your babies. As we have already mentioned, if you will be using a car seat for newborn, you need to be on a look out for a model that has this option, as usually this type of strollers come with a regular seat to be used when the little one is able to sit on its own.
Second important thing to know about the sit and stand double strollers is that they are not heavy all-terrain double strollers. In this sense, you have to bare in mind the terrain in the area where you live. More like the double umbrella strollers , the sit and stand ones are fitted with small plastic wheels and do not have a lot of suspension, so if you think that the ride might be bumpy, but at the same time the sit and stand double stroller is your lifesaver, then just be careful to chose one that comes with the best possible wheel suspension.
A lot of storage space - this is what every parent wants when they are taking out their little ones for a walk. The sit and stand double strollers in general offer quite a lot of storage space. They are fitted with a big storage bin under the seats and some models come with snack trays and cup holders for the kids and even some offer parent organizers. It depends of course on the brand and the model, some may come included and some might be offered to purchase separately, but the good thing is that the options are always there.
All sit and stand strollers offer canopies for the front seat and in most cases they are big enough to protect the little one riding at the front, and even the one at the back, from the sun. However, if you live in an area where the weather is not nice and sunny almost all the time, than you will just need to wrap up the two kids well, as the canopies of the sit and stand strollers are not designed to protect from wind and rain. Of course, you would still be able to find rain covers sold separately if needed.
In general, the sit and stand double strollers are a great option for families growing two kids with an age gap of over 2 years. They are lightweight, easy to handle and they come at very affordable prices.
