There are certain situations where young parents may search to find a double stroller. Double strollers are very helpful and convenient for a couple that may already have a small child at home and are expecting another addition. Another situation may be when the parents have been informed by their doctor that they are expecting twins.
If the parents live an active lifestyle, a jogging stroller might be the most convenient for them to use. These are normally designed with bigger wheels that are easier to maneuver and the stroller itself is designed with a suspension to make the ride more smoothly for your baby.
What Types Of Double Strollers Are Available?
There are a variety of strollers to choose from when selecting the perfect one for your babies. One selection is the side by side style that will allow your babies to sit side by side to each other. According to consumer reports, this stroller seems to be the easiest to maneuver and to push. Another choice is the Tandem Stroller. This stroller will seat both children, but one will be seated behind the other. This one appears to be narrower allowing going through doorways a bit easier. The child in the rear seems to have limited leg room. These units are appear to be more difficult to push and do not fold up very small for storage. Here’s some more information about the differences.
What To Look For When Choosing Your Double Stroller
- A reclining seat that will adjust to various positions for the comfort of your babies
- A design that offers safety features such as seat belts that will keep them in place and from sliding out of the stroller
- Make sure that you make a selection that will allow you ample room for your infants and the room to carry the diaper bag or maybe even a couple of packages
- If you are limited on space for storage when the stroller is not in use, make sure to consider the size of the stroller when it is folded
What To Consider?
If storage is an issue and you need a double stroller that is lighter weight, you might consider selecting an umbrella stroller. These are available in the side by side design, but are somewhat smaller and you will lose some of your area to carry the diaper bag or packages from shopping. These will fold up smaller and will not take up as much space when being stored in your closet.
When in use, make sure to choose the unit that will make your life easier and be more comfortable on your children. If you would like to be able to pick up the care seat from your vehicle and snap it into place on the stroller, then that could be an option for you. Make sure to set a price range for your new purchase and select the double stroller that is within your price range but will allow you the benefits that you will need for you and your infant. Some units can even act like travel cribs for your baby as he naps while you shop.
