I am 22 weeks pregnant with twin girls and need help on getting a double stroller. I am stuck between the Bugaboo Donkey or the Baby Jogger City Mini Double. What do you think i should get? Bugaboo Donkey- http://www.bugaboo.com/234 Baby Jogger City Mini Double- http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Jogger-Double-Stroller- Black/dp/B003WIYO0Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1312124197&sr=8-1 Reply Anonymous: February 22, 2012 at 5:59 pm I have baby jogger city mini double and I love it, Its ideal for newborns,its comfortable, lightweight, great to push, fits through a a normal doorway, lays flat, the hoods protect babies from the sun as they flip forward more than others, it fold really easy in one easy step I would highly recomend it. Reply Mags: February 5, 2012 at 4:34 pm I’m going to be getting a Baby Jogger City Mini stroller…and use it for my newborn? On the Baby Jogger website it says that it can go to an almost full recline position. Obviously I’m not going to jog, I’ll probably never jog with it but I just like the specs and reviews on this particular stroller. It looks like a great stroller. It says that it almost fully reclines and that you can put an infant in it before it can hold its head up. My sister in law had a Bumbleride and used a neck support. Is this alright to do? Which neck support would you recommend? In my prenatal class they said sometimes the best thing is rolled up receiving blankets. Any suggestions? Reply Anonymous: February 11, 2012 at 8:43 pm The City mini is a great stroller and is suitable for a newborn. Rolled up recieving blankets are ok, but the are a hassle to deal with all the time, and tend to move around too much in a stroller versus an infant carrier. You can buy an inexpensive head and neck support which is held in place by the straps on the stroller and you should have no problems. An inexpensive one is the Especially For Babies Double Headrest for $16 at http://www.BabiesRus.com. It comes with 2 inserts, you use both for an infant, and as the child grows you remove the inner on to keep the proper fit. There are many others out there as well. Hope this helps, Alan Hope this helps, Reply Anonymous: February 5, 2012 at 10:46 pm I cant store the 2011 baby jogger city mini double stroller? I just bought this EXPENSIVE 2011 baby jogger city mini double stroller (crimson/gray) and cant store it up right! It doesnt fold as easy as the single city mini and it doesnt stay in an upright position, the stroller opens itself when i put it in a upright position. It comes with a TINY strap that says storage strap ( so im assuming you use that to tighten it so it can stay upright), but
strap that says storage strap ( so im assuming you use that to tighten it so it can stay upright), butthe strap is sooooo short its not even funny. I did strap it down but the tiny short velcro strap opensup and there it goes again…wide open!!! can anyone help me? maybe im doing something wrong?any feedback is greatly appreciated. this was a very expensive stroller 429.00 a long terminvestment and i want something that works!!! i just got it 2 days ago and im already stressed out byit =(Reply Anonymous: March 3, 2012 at 2:47 am Go to the store you got it from ReplyBun in my arms now!:February 6, 2012 at 7:14 pmBaby Jogger City Mini?Does anyone have the baby jogger city mini? I am thinking of buying it but my oneconcern is that the seat doesn’t sit upright enough. Has anyone experienced this? I read that the2011 model has a solution to this – can anyone confirm that it is much better? ThanksReply Anonymous: February 17, 2012 at 11:34 am hi, i have the baby jogger city mini and its the best buggy ever, my friends all have buggy envy! Not sure what you mean about not sitting upright enough – i have not noticed this and my little boy is always comfy in it. It can be moved easily to lots of different seating positions, and smoothly too, brilliant for when they fall asleep, cos you can just glide them back into flat position for a nap. I still love how easy it folds up and how lightweight yet sturdy it is. I look at other pushchairs all the time and they look so flimsy and no where near as nice as the city mini. I would not be without mine. So glad i bought it. I have had it since my son was about one, and he is now 2 and a half. not read anything about 2011 model – no need to, cos i am delighted with my model ! xx ReplyLFM:February 6, 2012 at 10:21 pm“Baby Jogger City Mini” stroller. Does it seem flimsy or unstable for regular use?I want something that’s lightweight, easy to fold, grows with the baby (from infant with carseat base) to toddler. What do you think of this or do you know anyone who owns one?Also does it seem comfortable for a child to sit in for an amusement park, shopping, etc?Reply Foofoo: March 2, 2012 at 9:14 pm I don’t know how helpful I am as I do not own this stroller but just wanted to say this is one of the most popular strollers for everyday use in NYC/Brooklyn where we live and Lord knows we New Yorkers give strollers a beating on our sidewalks and subways and in the parks. Your stroller is basically your car here and children spend a lot of time sitting in them so strollers popular in NYC are going to have comfy seats. I myself just bought the Joovy Kooper which has yet to arrive but is a similar design and you may want to check it out. It gets good reviews for being sturdy and for fitting children well into toddler-hood. I looked at the City Mini but didn’t want 3 wheels. ReplyAnonymous:February 9, 2012 at 7:37 pmanyone who knows about britax b ready, city mini, and city select strollers?Hi!Im debating between three different strollers and I would like opinions from people that own themwhich is the best. I have noticed they all have pretty good reviews and are around the same pricerange with accessories.The first is the Baby Jogger city select I like how this stroller lets both babies see when they getolder because the back seat is higher then the front seat.Second is the Britax b ready, this is nice but can the child on the bottom see forward at all or just outthe sides and is it easy to walk with from the videos it doesnt look like it…?Third is the baby jogger city mini. I like this because it is side by side and both babies would beable to see and it fits through standard doorways, but I will have a one year old and a newborn so iwill be using this stroller at first with a carseat does that get in the way of the child sitting in the otherseat?Thank you I appreciate any opinionsReply Elizabeth S: February 28, 2012 at 11:03 pm The City Mini is not made for shorter parents. My hunband and I are both around 5’10 and it was too short for us to push. We kept stepping on the wheels. The City Select worked just fine and it’s a very smooth ride.

The car seat can be seen at http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2844620Thank youReply xxxjadeyxxx: February 28, 2012 at 11:02 am Hi yes your car seat will fit with the adapter’s, well from what I know its the graco safe seat stage 1 which is the only safe seat infant carrier I have heard of, please keep in mind if you are planning on using the car seat fixed to your stroller that it is recommened to keep a baby in any car seat for no longer than 2 hours at a time due to the position and strain there little backs are put under in a car seat so please use the stroller + seat for short trips, also make sure your car seat is compatible with your car and has been fitted by a professional. Replyloquita:February 11, 2012 at 5:51 pmDo you have these strollers for your baby?I’d like the baby jogger city mini brand, but i saw one stroller similar at Babies R us is thebritax b agile and they say it’s better than the city mini i dont know why, what’s your experience aboutthese strollers if you have them? Thanks and sorry for my english I’m just learningReply Anonymous: February 23, 2012 at 3:05 pm We have the City Mini and absolutely love it! It folds up so easily, maneuvers well, and my daughter is very comfortable in it. The only complaints I have is that the straps are difficult to adjust and it doesn’t really have any bonus features (like a cupholder, play tray etc). There are compatible pieces that you can buy for it, so you may want to factor some of these costs if you plan to use it a lot. I bought the “mommy hook” and a cupholder attachment. The Britax B Agile wasn’t on the market when we got our stroller and I don’t know anybody who has one, but I’ve seen it and it looks identical. It was clearly designed as a knock-off of the City Mini, which means that it’s probably very similar for a little bit less money. I would just go to the store and wheel both around, see how easily they fold etc. If you can’t tell a difference, then go for the cheaper one! ReplyAngel:February 12, 2012 at 4:40 pmHas anyone actually jogged with the Baby Jogger City Mini?I know the City Mini is not sold as a jogging stroller but am interested to hear if anyonehas jogged with it, or if you know what it’s lacking that means it might not be safe to jog with. TIA.Reply jracciato: February 27, 2012 at 11:26 am I have not used one for jogging. But a couple of the parents out our center have them and like them for everyday use. The wheels look a bit small for use as a jogging stroller. But it does have a turnable front wheel, which is a major plus in my book. Most of the jogging strollers I have seen have a fixed front wheel, which makes turning them and moving them around obstacles a pain. Replymouthwash44:February 14, 2012 at 3:26 amCity mini baby jogger-use from birth?We gave bought a City Mini Baby Jogger, we plan to use this for our new born (once shearrives). It does say you can use this stroller from birth as it lies flat, I also plan to buy a headprotector (to keep head from moving side to side) and a footmuff….Has anyone else used the Baby Jogger for their new born? I would be interested in your views?Reply iLoveMyBeautifulSon 18/10/09: February 28, 2012 at 2:26 am yes its perfect for a newborn BUT only if you use the footmuff with it. You know you can also buy car seat adaptors and a carseat to use with it aswell?! ReplyEFK:February 16, 2012 at 4:03 pmI am looking into double strollers now for my 2 year old and 1 month old.

I reallylike the crimson/gray which is a maroon or red color but want to know your opinionReply MEL: March 2, 2012 at 7:27 am Crimson and grey is neutral stylish and easy to keep clean! ReplyHillary W:February 19, 2012 at 6:23 amJoovy Ultralight for 19month old and Newborn baby or Baby Jogger City Mini double?I will have a 19 month old active son and newborn daughter in a couple of months…ireally don’t want a huge double stroller but still need something for my young toddler son- he lovesto walk when he can though! I’d love to be able to pop in the infant car seat when out and about sothe ultralight is looking good- just not sure the seat is enough for my son? I also love the babyjogger city mini double (we have the single now for him) but it might be too much stroller as he getscloser to 2 years old- and the seats aren’t that big on it (he’s very tall)}. Thanks for the advicemommies!Reply WGAFF: February 25, 2012 at 2:48 am http://www.macklems.com/phil-and-teds-dash.htm These are neat and are not too big so if he wants to walk he can or he can get in the back. or http://www.onestepahead.com/product/osa/6793.html This one has a space to stand at the back. And has a tray so probably car seat ready. ReplyJennifer:February 22, 2012 at 10:03 pmBugaboo bee (or) Baby Jogger City Mini?It has come down to these two and I simply cannot decide. My daughters stroller brokeand she is only 11 months old. I like the bee because she can face me or to the world it’s compactsize, it’s easy to maneuver and it has the hight adjustable handle because her dad is tall. Then thecity mini is also compact slightly larger when folded but not much. I like that I can get a snack tray forit, they both have large canopies, but the city mini goes up to 50 lbs and the bee is 37.5 lbs, and Iam not quite sure how much she will weigh by the time she is done with a stroller.Reply Proud mommy to Isabell!: March 1, 2012 at 7:45 pm I’ve heard the Bugaboos are excellent. Great strollers. I didn’t buy a Bugaboo for my 2 month old girl, because they were (and still are) expensive. My friend has the Bugaboo Bee for her 5 month old son, and from her experience, she loves it! Yes, it also depends on the weight/size, as well. You have to have a good, compact, sized stroller. The stroller may be excellent, but it has to have a fine weight as well. You can’t have a humongous stroller that can’t fit through doors, you have to have a light, easy to move stroller that you can take around. So, in this case, I would recommend the Bugaboo Bee. Not only is it a great stroller, the weight is decent as well. Good luck! ReplyMommy1234:February 23, 2012 at 4:02 amTike Tech City vs Baby jogger mini double stroller?Have any of you try either one of these strollers? Which one did you like better? do they fitthrough standard doors? I’m comparingTike Tech City X3 Swivel Double Stroller vs Baby JoggerCity Mini Double StrollerReply momof2: February 24, 2012 at 5:35 am two completely different strollers. The Tike Tech is an all terrain stroller while the Mini is better suited for malls/paved terrain. If you want to compare a Tike Tech to the Baby Jogger you need to compare the Elite not the Mini ReplyAnonymous:February 24, 2012 at 5:20 pm2011 Baby jogger city mini double stroller maintenance?I just recently bought a 2011 baby jogger city mini double stroller in crimson/gray color. Ipaid $429.00 for it and have a question on maintaing it. I know the tires wear out and get eaten bythe sun, not to mention the color fades away, but my question is, will leaving the stroller in my trunk (where temperatures are get EXTREMELY HOT) affect the durability of the stroller, tires, color, fabricetc… Im willing to take in and out the house as I use it, but I admit it would be a hassle to do that. Ireally want it to last because it will be the stroller we keep for when baby number arrives. any help orfeedback is greatly appreciated .. thank you…ReplyAnonymous:March 2, 2012 at 2:18 amwhats the best twin stroller you can recommend?I am expecting twins, don’t no the sex yet.
I am expecting twins, don’t no the sex yet. Me and my husband went looking at twin strollers at babies r us and there wasn’t really anything that caught our eye, We did quite like the Baby Jogger City Mini Double Stroller but we were not that sure about it, what do you guys think? Reply Amy P: March 4, 2012 at 4:04 pm Congratulations on your twins! I was just going to recommend the City Mini Double. It’s one of top-rated side- by-side strollers on the market. Only downside to that is that they can’t take two car seats. When your children are a little older and you’re the type of parents who like to get out and be active, the BOB Revolution Duallie is a sure bet as well. A type of stroller I like is called a convertible stroller. It converts from a single to a double and probably the best stroller for twins would be the Baby Jogger City Select. The other option is the Britax B-Ready. Both have removable seats and you can use in their place your car seat or bassinet. Downside: big outlay of $$. Take a look at the research options below. Click to read the thorough reviews and I think you’ll find them very helpful in selecting the right stroller for your twins. Best of luck and warm regards. Reply pinklady_x: March 3, 2012 at 5:28 am Baby Jogger mini city double footmuff/liner? Anyone who has this what footmuff or liner do you use? I’m not too keen on the Jogger one. Reply cookster: March 3, 2012 at 11:50 am Baby Jogger City Mini or Bugaboo Bee Plus or other rear facing stroller? I currently have a Loola Up, but finding it very heavy and cumbersome now my 10 month old is getting a bit heavier. I have just ordered the Baby Jogger City Mini after lots of recommendations and fantastic reviews, but wondering if I should send it back? Reason being, I wonder if I’d miss the parent facing option of the Loola? I like the look of the Bee Plus, but not sure if I can justify the cost. Alternatively, are there any other strollers out there that are rear facing but not part of a big heavy travel system? Reply Anonymous: March 4, 2012 at 12:16 pm Get a bassinette to go into it, then you can have baby facing you : ) I work in a baby shop and the city mini is the most popular strollers we have. The easy fold and the light weight of the stroller are perfect. I would definately recommend this stroller to you. Bugaboo is good but we sell 100′s of baby joggers compared to bugaboos. Reply Lelynn Skye: March 4, 2012 at 2:46 pm anyone have a baby jogger city mini stroller? and if so which car seat did u buy to use with it? Reply Love to Answer: March 6, 2012 at 2:38 am I have the double, and it’s not carseat compatible. However, I read that the graco infant seat works great with the single city mini infant seat conversion kit.
