I am expecting baby #2 and have a dd that will be almost 3 when the baby comes. Any feedback on these two double strollers would be great

Well, I was in the same situation as you (my girls are almost exactly 3 years apart) and I started off with the Sit and Stand. After 6 months of using it, I was thoroughly annoyed with it. It was heavy, hard to steer, the basket was completely inaccesable, and my 3 year-old was not crazy about the seat. I ended up ditching it and getting the DuoGlider, which we happily used until dd was 4 years 3 months old. At that point, she did not have much interest in sitting anymore. We began using our Peg Pliko at this point, which was comfy for my then-1 year-old and had the footboard on the back for my 4 year-old for when she was tired. If I had to do it all over again, I would have started off with the DuoGlider and then switched to the Pliko. The Sit and Stand was just not that impressive.
Where in Philly do you live? We live in Spring City, about 35 minutes away from the city. Just curious! Good luck!

I would go for this one over the sit and stand!
I know a few people who have been happy with it! One nice thing is both seats recline so if there is a chance that your older one might nap in the stroller this is the one! A friend had the cosco eddie bauer HUGE double and I felt awful for their older child who knocked out at Disneyland and since they couldn't recline the front seat she looked all awkward and uncomfortable! Even 3 year olds sometimes still crash out on longer days/trips! Just something to keep in mind!

I think it really depends on how big your older child is.
My DS turned 3 two weeks after his baby brother was born and we have a Graco DuoGlider. It would have worked really well for us, but my oldest is very tall (42" at age 3) and he is just too big for the DuoGlider. He loves to ride in it (will actually stay in it), but he is just to big to be comfortable.
A friend of mine has the Sit'N Stand and complains that it is too big & heavy (her only other stroller is a Combi Savvy), but I think it would suit our needs better. If I find a used one at a great price, I may get it and sell my DuoGlider to my pregnant neighbor.

I have the sit-n-stand for a three month old and almost three year old. I have the version called the compact, and it takes an infant carseat and is pretty small/easy to fold. I like it for the mall because it is not even as big as some single strollers. The steering is o.k. My son would never fall asleep in a stroller, so I did not have to worry about that. It does not seem like it will last a long time, it seems a little cheap, but the bench seat works much better for me than just a running board did, and it is definitely easier to deal with than a double stroller. That said, it is not a stroller for long walks or anything. Good luck!
