The Jeep side by side might be better but we got the Jeep tandem as our cheapy and it is horrible! I didn't think my DH would fly with the price tag either but all I did was have him push some around to compare, it was he who said yes this is the one! LOL he sold himself on it!
I bought a snap n go on Craigslist for this baby. Not sure about after one year. We do have an umbrella stroller and a lightweight stroller that worked well but it's really quite worn out now so we might find something else.
Elizabeth, I would think a lightweight type would work fine if you don't jog. Ours worked fine for what we needed it for. I'll probably just get one for $20 or so on Craigslist eventually. That's how much our lightweight cost and we got some good use out of it!
Oh yeah, the thing to think about w/ a stroller is that it reclines. Because when you're out and about and the kid wants to sleep, it's a great thing. And our umbrella doesn't have a canopy or a basket which our lightweight does have. So I think the lightweight is good to have.
We don't jog, but we are big walkers. Like 1-2 miles sometimes...and the roads/sidewalks in the neighborhood are terrible. I've been watching everyone walk their babies and they all have the rubber wheel style. But I will have to do some more research. I just can't decide. I'd rather not pay the money. What's the "lightweight?"
My infant carrier is 3 years old. I will be getting a new one and the snap and go. I also plan on wearing baby this time. Since this is the last baby, I don't want to buy anything big and bulky. Not sure how I'm going to manage 3 kids...:eek:
I still want the Phil and Ted's. DH has somewhat given me the go ahead to get it if I find one for less than 200. :D I have my moby too, so I will use that for shopping and such.
Yeah, do more research. Lightweight is just a lightweight stroller like this one: Babies R Us by Baby Trend TrendSport Stroller - Nile - Babies R Us - Babies "R" Us

BRU has a bunch of "lightweight strollers" Toys"R"Us/Babies"R"Us
Mine is similar to this: Cosco - Soria Lightweight Stroller: Strollers : Walmart.com
Can't find the exact one though, got it on CL. CL is a great place to look - you can find some good strollers for $10-$20.
With DS by the time he reached 8 - 9 months, he could walk and absolutely refused to be tied down in any stroller. As soon as I put him in, he'd do everything possible to try & get out by leaning over the edge. I ended up letting him walk a short ways, then carrying him, then walk, then carry etc so I'll probably just stick with the baby bjorn. I have a baby trend car seat though and I saw a baby trend jogging stroller that looked lightweight at wal-mart which would fit the carseat. They were selling last years model for $90 but had none left, this years model was 129$ It got me kinda annoyed to pay 40$ more just for one that's a different color. If I see a good deal on one I might get it though.
