Getting around with twins and a toddler.

[deleted account] ( 12 moms have responded )

We have twins boys coming in October and our son will be 2 and a half then. Any thoughts on the best strollers/ways to get all three out of the house sometimes? We have a great single jogger stroller now.

we did the BOB & carrier mostly or sometimes twins in the BOB and toddler walked on the harness. he was 2 1/2 when they were born. he is now 4 and they are 20 mths so he just walks beside the stroller with his hand on the push bar - he knows not to let go or he goes back on the harness

Lol, I'm getting around with twin toddlers and and infant! I use the double stroller, and the pouch thing that goes across you to carry a baby. It's more than a hassle and draining!

Thanks everybody. We ended up getting a BOB double stroller. I love it. If my husband is with me we can take the single and the double but if it's just me my three year old can ride in one seat and one of the twins in the other while I carry the other twin in the front carry pouch. I've come to the conclusion that with three kids there really isn't an easy way to do anything!!! But I wouldn't trade it for the world.

I have 18month old twin boys and a 3 year old daughter and when my boys were born we got a double stroller that takes two car seats and has a seat on the back for a toddler, it is made by Joozy and is called the big caboose. It is big and sometime hard to steer, but was the only practical way to transport all my kids.

My son was 3.5 and my daughter had just turned 2 when my twin boys were born last year. We used a sit-n-stand + Peanut Shell. My daughter and 1 baby rode the stroller, and I carried 1 baby in the carrier. It worked really well for me.

I used phil and teds double buggy with 2 and 1/2 year old in it with one of the boys. Then put other baby in front pack. Now boys are 6 months I am putting both boys in buggy and daughter walks.... have her attached to a harness thing too, still ironing out teething problems.. little madam rather independent and can get a bit stroppy so have to convince her it's actually her idea and lots of fun to do it this way!!!

I have twins girls who were born in October and a 3 year old. I have the Baby Trend Snap-N-Go stroller. You just snap the car seats onto the stroller frame. My toddler thinks she's a "big girl" and will not ride in a stroller. So she likes to stand in front of me and help me push the stroller. It has gone surprisingly well so far!!!

hi there, i would suggest getting a tandom for the twins and maybe try using a buggy bored,it might help it might not, x

My oldest will be 2 in oct and my twins will be 1 in oct...we bought a side by side double and a single in the same brand so when there is 2 of us we can push them seperately, but i also have an attachment (that they sell at babies r us) that connects the strollers if i am by myself

A double stroller that takes two infant car seats( hard to find) and one of those backpack/leashes for your older son. i have 21month old twin boys and they love to walk so we put the backpacks with the leash on them. They do really well with them and they get their exercise in.

Try a double stroller (tandum) and a baby carrier. When the twins get too big for you to carry your toddler should be able to walk with you... Or...when I am babysitting my nephew who is 10 months...and my twins are 1 1/2, I put the back seat on the stroller to recline and I put two kids in the back and one in the front :o) My babys like to hold their cousin between their legs. Good luck to you :)
