I have a 5 month old DD and a 4.75 year old DS, both home with me while I'm on maternity leave. I have a single jogging stroller which is great for walks in my area (with no sidewalks and gravel shoulders on the roads) and on the trails. I'm not a runner. I also have a Playtex Hip Hammock, which I got for $5 on kijiji and works well. I also have a bad back which has acted up recently quite a bit (starting physio tomorrow).
Here's my question: what's my best option for getting in 1-1.5 hour walks with both kids at my pace (I.e. For exercise purposes, without my son walking or riding his bike at his pace). He seems willing to sit in a stroller, and I can get a Baby Trend double jogger for $100 from kijiji. Or should I spend $75-$100 for a used Beco gemini or Ergo to carry my daughter while pushing my son?
Mostly worried about my back - not sure which is more of a struggle physically. Have great re-sale opportunities here, so even if the double jogger was too small for my son by the end of the summer I'd get my full $100 (and then some, I'd guess) back in re-sale. He's average height and only 36 lbs.
Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks
