How To Choose A Stroller For Twins

Having twins can be a daunting prospect. Not only do you need to buy all the things that babies need, you need twice as much to cater for both your little ones. When it comes to buying the right twin stroller for you, it can be a bit overwhelming. Here is our guide to the different types of strollers out there and the pros and cons of each one.

The Tandem Twin Stroller

The most common twin stroller out there is the tandem twin stroller. This is where the seats are placed one in front of the other and is essentially the same width as an ordinary stroller.

 

Although there are some downsides to this type of stroller, mainly that some children dislike sitting in the back because it hinders their view and that it can be quite difficult to keep an eye on your little one in the front seat, these are outweighed by the pros. The fact that they are the same width as a single stroller means that they are guaranteed to fit through all standard doorways and they are just as easy to manoeuvere in tight spaces. Another benefit of this type of twin stroller is that they are full of cup holders and little compartments and storage baskets.

Side by Side Twin Strollers

The side by side twin stroller is another popular model of twin strollers. In this type of stroller, both your little ones sit side by side rather then one in front of the other. Although, they are much wider than the tandem stroller, they are pretty much the same size as a single stroller, just next to each other. Although they may not fit through every door and they are quite difficult to negotiate tight spaces, both children will have the same view which will lessen bickering somewhat! They are also less bulky and lighter than the tandem twin strollers, so makes it easier to take the little ones out and about.

Twin Jogging Stroller

For those more active mums out there, it may be worth having a look at twin jogging strollers. These strollers are more hard-wearing than your typical tandem or side by side strollers. There are two other “sub-types” of the jogging stroller, ones with a fixed front wheel and one with swivel front wheels.

For those who enjoy running, then the twin jogger with a fixed front wheel is probably your best bet. The benefits of a fixed front wheel is that it have straight tracking and handles bumps much better. The wheels themselves are also much more durable and are more like a bicycle wheel meaning that your little ones have a much smoother ride.

If you are looking for something for power walking or light jogging, then consider a twin jogging stroller with swivel front wheels. Although these don’t have the straight tracking like the fixed front wheels, they are much easier to manoeuvre.

So, whatever you are looking for there are plenty of good makes and models out there to suit your lifestyle.
