How to Buy a Stroller for Twins (and Other Multiples!)

Side-by-Side Multiples Strollers

Your babies will have basically the same view while gliding through new locales in these rides (neither will be looking at the back of the other’s head!). Most models have seats that both recline, so they work for young nappers and older sightseers. Plus they provide quality bonding time when the kids are sitting next to each other. There’s a catch, though: the wide body of these models can be harder to maneuver through tight spaces, and it won’t fit through narrow doorways.

One to try: Joovy Scooter X2, $200 Tandem (Front/Back)

Multiples Strollers

These are perfect for city moms. Since they’re usually as narrow as a single stroller, you’ll have fewer problems. Some models also accommodate two infant car seats, so you can skip the snap-and-go and go straight to the tandem. The drawbacks? Tandems are usually heavier, and typically only the back seat can fully recline. Plus, there’s bound to be an unhappy customer if one kid gets a blocked rear view.

Jogging Multiples Strollers

If you’re dreaming of working off the pregnancy weight with regular power walks or runs, a jogging stroller is right for you. In fact, they’re a necessity if you want to avoid completely killing your back while exercising, since they have higher, sometimes adjustable, handles. For walkers, a stroller with a front wheel that swivels is easier to handle when making turns. Running moms, get a model with a fixed front wheel that will keep you on track while running laps and that will handle bumps better.

Lightweight Multiples Strollers

No, this is not an oxymoron. Having twins doesn’t mean your stroller has to weigh twice as much. In fact, some models weigh as little as 21 pounds and have a one-hand-fold feature that makes it easy to transport. And don’t worry, even though it’s light doesn’t mean it won’t support your precious cargo!

One to try: Maclaren Twin Triumph, from $275
