Although I am in a different situation I have and love my coalcraft tandem stroller. I love it because my girls can face each other, sit back to back, both face me, or both face forward. It can acomadate two infant cariers, or one infant carier and one older child. Since I don't drive I use the removable seats as car seats along with the seat belt in the car, or in my case on the bus. It does weigh a little more, but I have to say its a great stroller and full of options. I had a Graco, flew with it once and the air lines destroyed the canapies on it. I have to say though I have to agree with Jamie for a side by side stroller you can't beat the bobs strollers. If I could aford one i'd defenetly have one they are really nice and worth every penny. The most important thing is to find one that can acept the most weight. So many of them only can take children up to a combind weight of 70 to 80 lbs. However there are a few out there where each child can weigh up to 75lbs. So just do your reserch. Toys r us has a nice section on their web page that allows parents to review products those are nice to read to get other opinions on any given product.

We have a Graco stroller (duo glider) as well as a carseat. I love Graco. They are bit more pricy, but it's well worth it. The duo glider is small for a tandem, it drives like a Cadillac ( wide turns, drives smooth and feels big) We have a midsized car and we're able to put it in our trunk which is pretty small all things considered. Both seats recline for the car seat, the back is suppose to be for it specifically, as the back fully reclines, and has a canopy that covers the baby. The basket is very spacious. It goes from the back which is deep and wide all the way to front which narrows and sits under the front seat. The wheels are rubber and drive nice. Each wheel has a break, none of which are connected like in some Graco's (our last one did, and i loved that feature). The back seat for the baby carrier is spacious for the feet when they get longer. It has a cup holder along with a separate compartment for your keys and such. It folds easily and unfolds just as easy. I love my duo glider and defiantly recommend it.

I would avoid the sit n stand type stroller. i got one when we had 2 foster kids that were 2 1/2 and 10 months. Thought that would be nice. The basket is a pain in the butt to get anything in or out of. I am now going to sell that. We have a daughter that will be 17 1/2 months when our next baby is due and I want a tandum stroller. I've been looking at Gracos. They have nice, big, easily accesible baskets and our car seat is a Graco so will work with it. I wish I would have just gotten a tandum back a few years a go instead of wasting money on the sit n stand.

Sunrise has already listed the stroller I would recommend (Graco Duo Glider). I would heavily advise against anything made by Safety first. Mainly because they are awkward to fold and have crappy storage.

I like the tandom when my older two were little because it was easier to manuver in small spots & in small stores. I had a Graco Duo Glider and it was an easy to fold/ unfold & go, light weight and easy to push. Of course that was 8 years ago and manyt hing have changed.... maybe pop into the Twins forums and see what moms there have to say?
