Strollers

Where oh where does one find a stroller for newborn twins that doesn't cost $1000??? Please tell me someone knows. None of the local stores even carry double strollers except the kind you'd put toddlers in to go for a run. That does not help us at all. I've been trying to look online but I'm not sure what I'm finding would hold two newborns and they're all extremely expensive. James and I talked yesterday about taking a trip up to Cincinnati or even TN to shop for it if there are stores that actually carry them, but I'm not having any luck finding stores. When you're having twins, you come to accept that they bring double everything: twice the money, twice the furniture, twice the space, twice the frustration, twice the lack of sleep and most importantly, twice the love. You know there are certain things that will be harder than others and trying to find a double stroller is one thing we expected to be a little more difficult. However, I did not expect it to be almost impossible. Please tell me the baby stores or online sites you're using to get your baby items. Maybe that will help us. We need the help!!

Hey Jeannie!

So in regards to actual strollers, I am no help so I hope you get a good referral on an actual stroller. But if I were you, once you know want you want, check places like EBAY and maybe even Craigslist to see if anyone is selling the item that you want. I find great deals on EBAY for all kinds of items.

Good luck with your search!

I agree with Shannon - check ebay and Craigslist. I've been finding great deals on both sites! My dad bought a stroller off craigslist for $20 - it was originally over $100 or so. It just needed some cleaning up and it's fine.

I hope you have good luck finding something. Just from what we've seen for furniture, strollers, etc. for one, it's so darn expensive! I told Chris today I found a stoller I liked and his response was "how much is it? $400?". Not quite, but it is $300. Crazy, huh?

my friend got hers at Target. it's one of those that you can attach the newborn carseats or carriers to the stroller, then when they are older, you can use it as a toddler stroller. i don't think it cost too much, either. gl!
