I said after I had my twins that I was going to write one b/c I couldn't find any either. I just used Dr. Sears' books about having babies and would insert the word twins in there where appropriate.
you should ask them what they think about triandem nursing. 1 yr old twins and a 3.5 yr old
If anyone happens to live in the Dallas/Ft Worth metroplex and wants an inflatable one, I have one. I've been trying to get rid of it!
another vote for the Valco Twin Trimode. I spent a lot of time comparing it and the MBUD, but ended up with the Valco. I have a 3.5 yr old son in addition to my 1yr old twins, and I don't have the toddler seat. The Valco has a huge kickplate at the front of it, and my older son just hops on and off when he wants to ride. I had the Joovy Big Caboose for about 2 days, then I saw how long it was, and I took it back. The Valco is certainly heavy, but I think it's...
I have a Valco Twin Trimode, and while I find it aesthetically appealing, it is the heaviest thing I've ever had. I think it weighs about 45 lbs. Without children in it. I do love it though, if you go walking a lot. Or running. I have a Suburban, and I have a very hard time getting it in the back of my car. I am lusting a Maclaren Twin.

This is what I had been envisioning in my head, but hadn't set out to try it yet. That's why I didn't understand about the back baby first. But, I totally get that it's easier to do the more...

I love Cracker Barrel! What a great story!
Thanks ladies! I really appreciate all the info-I am glad to know that at least one person has used the Joovy and liked it. I agree that anything I buy to handle 3 kiddo's will be heavy and a little difficult to maneuver. And I do plan on wearing them as much as possible, but I know I will have situations where I will need this type of stroller. I welcome anymore suggestions! I did find out today that I am having identical twin boys, so at least the red/black...
I have a question about what stroller is best for my situation. I have a 2 yr old son and am preg with twins due in early May. I have found this stroller: http://joovy.com/pages/pd_bigcaboose.php I think it will work best for my situation, since I can use it both for my newborns and when they get to be toddlers, in addition to my older son. But, I have a friend who has another type of Joovy and she doesn't care for it. Anyone have experience with it? Or can...
