QUESTION: CAN AN INFANT CAR SEAT SNAP INTO THIS OR DOES THE CHILD NEED TO BE ABLE TO SIT UP ON THEIR OWN?
No, an infant seat cannot snap into this. You need to buy the Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogging Stroller in order to use infant seats.
No, a car seat will not fit in this stroller. I bought this for my daughter, who just had her second baby. I ended up buying the sit and stand baby trend stroller as well.
An infant car seat doesn't snap in but the seats do recline.
It's adjustable so it leans back all the way. My friend has the same one and has a newborn. We walk all the time. Between us both we have a 3,2, 1 and 4 month old. Been running for a few months now.
No snap in on this model. They need to sit in it on their own. We have an infant that was able to sit in this with the seat back somewhat reclined. It is important that they can hold their head up though. There is another BabyTrend model that offers snap in (in a double) check out the BabyTrend Navigator double jogger if the snap in is important to you.
No, but my 2 month old does just fine in this stroller with the seat fully reclined.
This one in particular does not. But there are some that do.
Sorry, I didn't buy it until twins were 10 months old, so didn't use that function. Could ask makers of stroller if there is an adaptor, but to be honest I don't see how it would fit on.
sit up on there own :) great Jogger. Very happy with it.

QUESTION: DO THE SPEAKERS CONNECT TO A PHONE FOR MUSIC PURPOSES OR ONLY MP3 PLAYERS (IE. IPOD)?
We used the iPhone 6s Plus and it works good
It worked with my iPhone
They will plug into anything with a headphone jack. So yes, phone works great with the speakers. I plug my iPhone in every time we go for a walk.
Yes it does. It is basically like a headphone plug. I use my iPhone when I push my stroller to listen to music. Hope this helps.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: IT THIS STROLLER APPROPRIATE FOR HIKING TRAILS AND MORE "OFF ROAD" ADVENTURES?
It'll work just fine for hiking trails.
I use it on clay walking trails and it works well. As long as the grass is not to thick it is easy to push.
It depends on the width of the hiking trail but stroller itself is durable enough but I think you would need different tire tubes.
I live on a farm and my road is unpaved, unfortunately I had a couple of blowouts that needed repaired.
Living in Iowa, we don't have much off road trails here. The snow just melted so I have only been able to take it out a couple times. I did find out the hard way that the front wheel has a lock to prevent it from turning, this "lock" setting is used for running, taking this lock off lets the front wheel turn 360 degrees, if your run with the lock off it will vibrate violently. Hope this make sense. Overall, durable stroller, smooth ride, plenty of storage,easy to maneuver.
Hi. I have used this stroller "off road", the knobby tires do make it work easier on trails. It is a little bit wide and that's the only problem when hiking on single track trails it is often too wide. It is easy to push. I did not run with it but have done lots of speed walking with it and have used it on stone fire roads often.
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THE CANOPY ADJUST TO THE FRONT OF THE STROLLER? THANKS.
It can be pulled down in front of the seats to block the sun coming directly in their faces.
It comes down about half way won't go down all the way if you have a taller kid it will block the wind but a baby probably not we just put a blanket over the front when it's windy :)
Yes. As the others have said it can be moved into the front to block sun or wind.
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: GOOD DAY, THIS CAR IS FOR BABIES 1 MONTH OLD ON? OR IS ONLY FOR CHILD AGE AND ONE MORE?
I feel most comfortable using it with babies that can sit up themselves but you can lower the seats to a reclined position for babies that cannot.
We use this with our 3month old and just recline one seat all the way back. He usually falls right to sleep! I was nervous about using it with him since he can't sit up on his own but once I got him in there it worked just great!
It can be. We lay one seat back all the way and use some towels to stabilize the baby.
Hi Marioli, I wouldn't feel comfortable using this stroller for a 1 month old. Personally, I wouldn't use the stroller until the child is able to fully support his/her neck (5-6 months old). The stroller is rather large, even when folded. Hope this helps! Kind regards, Zaheer
They really should be able to hold their head up. And sit. 6 months at least
I would say that this stroller is for babies that are able to sit up on their own. There is not much support to hold them upright, and the seats actually slope together slightly. Hope that helps!
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: WILL THIS FIT IN A HONDA CIVIC TRUNK AND STILL ALLOW ROOM FOR OTHER STUFF TO FIT?
I had a Kia Optim at the time of purchase and it fit no problem with room to spare. I would love to say yes it would fit no problem but not positive.
Not exactly sure but it fits into a Mazda 3 (not the hatchback) and there is a little room to each side. It also fits into a standard saturn. Pretty sure it fits in most cars.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: HOW ARE THE SEATS SUPPORTED DOWN THE MIDDLE? IS THERE A METAL BAR OR ARE THEY SUPPORTED ONLY AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM?
There is no bar. No support other than another layer of fabric underneath the sitting fabric. The extra layer of fabric is build in tightly. The seam used to hold both sitting spots for the kids is just a seam no support there. So the kids sink in.
Only supported at the top and bottom. I found if you roll up a receiving blanket you can place it in between the fabric for more support.
There is not a bar that supports it. Just secured on the outline of seats. I'm not finding it to be problem for me. I have my 4.5 year old who is almost 50 pounds and my daughter who is 1.5 years old that is 25 pounds. They may sink in towards each other just slightly but it's not anything to deter me from purchasing it again. It's been a life saver to me and wished I would of purchased sooner.
They are not supported in the middle is the only downfall...my grandson look like they are leaning on each other so I keep adjusting them, but all n all, its a very nice stroller
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: CAN YOU PUT A BUCKET CAR SEAT IN ONE SIDE FOR INFANTS?
The divider and the seats are cloth. I have never tried but I wouldn't feel safe saying it would be sturdy enough to support a seat like that.
I am very familiar with the infant car seats, (two babies under two), and this stroller is not equipped to hold an infant car seat.
I doubt it. There are no attachments or straps to hold it in.
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: IS THIS STROLLER GOOD FOR AN INFANT SINCE IT DOES NOT ALLOW FOR A CAR SEAT?
My daughter was 6 months old when I started using our stroller. While I was able to get the harness snug on her, it is definitely designed for a bit bigger baby. By 9 months she fit very well.
No, you would need the baby trend that has the cup holder & tray feature because the tray has a place to clip in the baby carrier. This one does not have a place for baby carriers, only good for kids who can sit upright on their own in a stroller.
It would depend how old the infant is. I defiantly wouldn't put a new born in there but if there 5 or 6 months and can sit up a little bit then it would be fine. I've had my daughter in it since she was 8 months old.
How old. .? I would have to say if the child can sit up by themselves yes. It is very adjustable
don't get this cheap stuff that doesn't block the sun properly and will have you pissed off days after you buy it for many reasons. Mine is sitting in a garage. I upgraded to baby jogger city mini gt double
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: IS THE FRONT SWIVEL WHEEL ALWAYS IN THE LOCKED POSITION OR CAN IT BE UNLOCKED?
It can be unlocked
Can be locked or unlocked.
It can be unlocked and is very handy, however you can not go to fast/long distances in this position
It can be unlocked!!!
Yes it can be unlocked by flipping the the orange or red tab at the top of the front wheel Hope this helps
It can be unlocked.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: IS IT A GOOD STROLLER FOR A AIR TRAVEL? DOES IT COLLAPSE WELL FOR THE AIRPLANE? THANKS!
I would say no. I've not tried it, but to fit it in the back of my van I have to remove the wheels. So I doubt it would be convenient for air travel.
I love it! I have the same style in the single stroller version, but I like the ease of the way the double folds even better. It's just a smarter folding design. It's really compact, and I think you can make it even smaller if you take the wheels off, which is easy as well. It seems like we did that to stuff it in our trunk to drive to Disneyland.
I love this stroller! But, it is definitely bigger than I would ever want to deal with while flying!!!! Even when folded it is huge!!! I'm sure you can take the wheels off, but who wants to deal with all that while flying with two children?!?
It is pretty big when collapsed. It fits in the back of my daughters pathfinder with some room left over but for a plane I don't think it would be a good fit.
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: THE SEATS SINK INWARD AND MY BABIES ARE SLIDING TOWARDS THE MIDDLE INTO EACH OTHER, HOW CAN I FIX IT?
I take a blanket, roll it up and stick it in the crack. I've also read people use pool noodles cut to size.
I shift the seat board so it its flat on the strap and it helps. But it. Happens no matter what
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: DOES IT HAVE THE FRONT PLASTIC FOR KIDS NOT TO FALL?
The seat belt buckles over the shoulders and across the waist to prevent falling out. They sit nice a snug where there is no way they would fall out. But it does not come with a plastic tray over the front. I've have this stroller for a few months now and I still love it. It is sharp looking, pushes smooth, lots of storage, 2 cup holders, speakers, and you can even lay the seats back so one or both can nap. Total life saver for our day at Disneyland. Only dislikes is the seats kind of sink inward so your kids slide toward the middle into each other and it is wide. But, I can still fit it through my front door and most store aisles. Folds up pretty flat to to fit in most trunks to.
No it only has the 5 point harness to each side to keep the child safe from falling. It is optional to use the shoulder straps they do come off to just have the belt across the lap.
It does not. You have to strap them in.
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: IS THERE A CLIP ON TRAY FOR KIDS TO USE TO EATS SNACKS THAT FIT THIS STROLLER?
It doesn't come with one ,you might be able to buy one
No, there isn't but it does have a larger footrest for little feet. The wide seating has enough room for sippies and snacks between children.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS ON GRAVEL? MY HUSBAND AND I DO ABOUT 4 MILES/RUN AND SOME ON GRAVEL. WOULD THIS BE A GOOD STROLLER FOR US?
I've used it on unpaved, hard packed roads and walkways that had some loose gravel as well as trails, pathways, etc I wouldn't recommend it on a bed of rocks, but this stroller can handle quite a bit!
Love this stroller..!!!. But I don't go over gravel ... Sorry ...
I don't run, but this walks fine over gravel.
I find it does fine on fine gravel. Perhaps less so on really rocky terrain...but honestly I've been super happy with this product. It's absolutely the best value for the money....you can spend so much more on side-by-side strollers and this really has everything you need for less than half the price of most. Hope that helps.
when both kids are in the stroller it works well on gravel, however with only one kid in it does not work well at all.
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THIS STROLLER HAVE THE OPTION TO BUY A CHILD'S TRAY TO HOOK ON TO IT?
I dont think so there isnt any way to hook it to it
I don't think it does. I am looking at mine right now and I can't see a way a tray would attach. I can't say for certain.
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: CAN I ATTACH A CAR SEAT TO ONE SIDE OF THE STROLLER?
No.
No there is no way I could find that would be secure to attach an infant car seat
No, you will need the one with the trays
Hi. No. Not enough space for a car seat.
I don't see an area where the car seat would be able to clip on to be secure. Unless they sell some sort of attachment to be able to do that.
No.
I don't think so. The middle that separates the seats is just a piece of mesh and there is nothing for the infant's car seat to be attached to. It is pretty much for older babies/toddlers who can face forward and sit up by themselves :) I'd definitely not recommend it if you need to tote your car seat around as well!
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: SO, WHAT'S THE POINT OF THE SPEAKERS?
The speakers are included to connect you MP3 player or your Ipod to play music for your child and yourself to enjoy where ever you go.
Background or "white noise" for you or your children.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: I HAVE A NISSAN SENTRA (SMALL SEDAN). WILL IT FIT IN THE TRUNK?
This would take up a lot of room laying flay in the trunk of a car. I have a mini van and it took up a lot of space in the back of the van.
It folds up nicely probably about a 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 square. I really think it would fit.
I would say yes, only if you don't have to put anything else in the trunk with the stroller.
I have to take off the side wheels to get it into my jeep wrangler and while it is still quite large it flattens out nicely with the wheels removed and should fit easily into a trunk.
I have a Chevy impala and it won't fit with anything else in the trunk
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THIS STROLLER HAVE A HAND BRAKE?
No. But it has a jogging strap
No, just two individual foot brakes.
No hand brake
No, there is not a hand brake.
It has a safety strap but NO hand brake.
No it does not.
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: IS THERE AN ADAPTER TO USE ONE SIDE WITH A CAR SEAT?
No, unfortuneately there isn't. After buying this one (which we are keeping for later) we also bought the sit and stand. It's really versatile and easy to steer.
No...it is just for the child to seat In...no attachment capabilities....
No, not that I am aware of. But baby trend does make a version very similar to this, but it has two wheels in the front and has the car seat adapter. Its about the same price.
No, not that I am aware of. But baby trend does make a version very similar to this, but it has two wheels in the front and has the car seat adapter. Its about the same price.
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THIS VERSION HAVE A SPEAKER?
Yes! Love it!
Yes this does have a speaker.
We ordered ours without speakers. Make sure it specifies that it comes with speakers.
Yes it does have a speaker.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: HOW WIDE IS IT?
Not sure of exact measurements but we often have problems fitting through doorways at single-door restaurants and other places like the library. However, for walking around the neighborhood and inside grocery stores, target, etc, it's great. Our 3-year old and 9-month old sit comfortably next to each other (both kids are average size).
I do not have the exact dimensions in front of me. However, our first double stroller was much wider than this one which caused problems when trying to go through doors or stores. This stroller pretty much passes through most spaces, but is a little more "cozy" for the kids.
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ELIXIR AND THE EXPEDITION?
Elixir is just what they call the purple color. The Expedition is the actual stroller.
Hello, Elixir is the color. Thank you Babyhaven
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: IS THIS STROLLER HEAVY TO PUSH OR IS IT LIGHT IN WEIGHT, WHERE I CAN TAKE UP A SMALL HILL?
My wife and I both find the stroller to be extremely light and easy to push. We have a 1 year old and a 3 year old if that is helpful.
It is light enough to push up a hill. I had my two year old and one month old in it the other day and went for a run in my neighborhood which has hills and it worked great.
Very light weight my daughter puts it on top of her pathfinder when they take it on outings like the zoo
It is super light weight. I have no problem hauling it in and out of my car (while carrying diaper bags).
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THIS HAVE MP3 SPEAKERS IN THE PARENT TRAY?
Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
Yes
NO IT DOES NOT! I am returning this item when I receive my return package label.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: HOW WIDTH IS THIS STOLLER ON THE BACK IN CM? ABLE TO GET TROUGH A DOOR?
It fits easily through a regular house door, elevator, and most average size door openings. We really love this stroller and find ourselves exercising more because we have it and can listen to the music as we walk!!!!
The website http://www.babytrend.com/joggers_double/DJ96181.html gives you all the information on specs. I am able to get through some doors, but not all. It is easy for me to open the second door on my own, if someone helps with the first one. Most doors are 32" wide, maybe even wider, in some cases.
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: CAN THIS STROLLER FIT THROUGH REGULAR SIZE DOORS?
I have a hard time fitting it through doors when I go shopping unless they are double doors
No that's it's one down fall
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: DOES THIS STROLLER HAVE A WINDOW TO SEE THE KIDS WHEN YOU'RE WALKING/RUNNING BEHIND IT?
There is a small window with a soft cloth cover. You can't see both kids heads at the same time though. But the entire top folds back if needed.
yes, it has a small window on top that is rainproof with a flap that can be closed to shield from the sun. it's also very easy to shift the sun visor forward to get a better look at the kids. it's very adjustable and large which is easy to adjust as the angle of the sun changes during your walk/run. we've had our stroller for 4 weeks now and love it!
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE MAX HEIGHT FOR THE CHILD TO FIT IN THIS STROLLER
My daughter is 40inches and still fits.
My 5 year old niece sits in there fine. If that helps?
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: DO THE SEATS RECLINE ALL THE WAY IN THIS STROLLER?
Yes, they do both. The seats sit up and you can unhook the latest h so they lay back to rest in.
The seat reclined for my 5 month old juse fine it is a great stroller we love it
You can also recline one seat at a time or both seats at the same time.
Almost all the way. Great for when you're in a pickle and need to change a quick diaper!
My sister uses it,, but I did notice one time I looked at it the one seat was reclined a lot farther back than the other..
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THE CENTENNIAL COLOR COME WITH SPEAKERS?
Mine did, but it's over 2 year old. Not sure if models have changed.
The red one comes with speakers. Yes.
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: IS THE HANDLEBAR ADJUSTABLE FOR A TALLER PERSON, IM 5'8
No, its stationary. I'm also 5'8 and its a comfortable height.
I do not think it's adjustable. However, I am 5'6 and have not had any issues with it being too low.
No it is not adjustable
No, it does not adjust however I am taller than 5'8 and have not had any issues with that
I don't think so, but I'm 5'9" and I think it's a great height. I've never had to stoop over like I do with some strollers.
#Baby_Trend_Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: CAN THIS STROLLER ATTACH TO AN ADULT BIKE?
No it can not..
No it can't. :(
No, this is only to be used as a walking or jogging stroller.
#Baby_Trend

QUESTION: WILL THIS STROLLER FIT MOST OF THE DOORWAYS IN BUILDING'S APARTMENTS WHERE THE WIDTH CLEARANCE IS ABOUT 28 INCHES?
Yes! I live in an apartment and it fits through. It's tight but it does fit.
A great stroller but remember it sits 2 so it needs at least a 32-36 opening. We love it!
No. It's a super tight fit going through doorways and aisles.
I really don't think so. I've only been able to use it where handicap accessible. I will call you later :)
#Expedition_Double_Jogger

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE WEIGHT LIMIT?
I read 50 lbs per child
45 to 50 lbs
#Baby_Trend_Review

QUESTION: HOW DOES THIS STROLLER COMPARE TO THE DOUBLE BOB STROLLER? I NEED SOMETHING SMOOTH WHILE JOGGING AND EASY TO PUSH.
It's very smooth and easy to push. I have a 16 month old that is 23 lbs and a 4 yr old that is 46 lbs and have no trouble jogging with it. Great stroller.
I don't have experience with the Bob stroller, but this is very easy to push. It's hard to turn when jogging because the front wheel should be locked but it makes it very smooth!
