Double Stroller?

Cory - posted on 02/03/2010 ( 5 moms have responded )




Okay so i know i want a Side by Side double stroller. However I havent ever had one, so i really dont know what to expect or want. I know i will need it to be conpatable with an infant carseat. My daughter will be about 27 months old when the next one gets her, so she will still want to be in the stroller. Does anyone know of a great stroller. We mainly go shopping or for little walks around town. I do NOT jog but wouldnt necessarily rule out jogging strollers. THank you for your imput.

Think twice about a double side by side as you can not get around shops. As your older daughter will be at the stage where she will want to walk sometimes I would get a double that can convert back to a single stroller like the Phil and Ted's . I have one, it is baulky and heavy to lift in and out but otherwise great. Not car seat complient, but you at least won't have to get another stroller once your older daughter walks all the time

I guess it comes down to what style you like, and what your price range is. There's so much available in the way of double strollers.

Some personal faves of mine:

Phil and Ted's Dash with double kit. This is a jogging style of stroller, but it way it goes as a double is so freaking cool. Basically, you put the double kit on under the first seat, and the stroller doesn't take up any more room than a single, but accommodates two kids. I have no idea if it's car seat compatible, but it's awesome. Google it. Actually, just look at ANY Phil and Ted's stroller with double kit. You'll get the idea.

Maclaren Twin Techno. It's not car seat compatible, but it's fairly compact as far as side-by-side doubles go. It folds nice and compactly, so that's a plus. I love Maclaren products.

Peg Perego Duette is not side by side, but a friend of mine adores hers. I have a different Peg Perego stroller myself, and it's great, so maybe look into this one just to see if you like it. It fits through doorways much easier than a side by side one. It doesn't fold compactly, though, which would be a problem for me since I drive a little car.

The Zooper Tango is car seat compatible on one side. It reminds me a bit of a Peg Perego Aria, so a more conventional style of stroller.

And speaking of the Peg Perego Aria, it comes in double form. I have a single Aria, and it's compatible with the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio car seat. I think others can be used with it with an adapter.

Or have you considered a Sit and Stand stroller? It's more compact than a double, but still accommodates two kids nicely. Try the Joovy Caboose.

I have to agree with the other two ladies that made comments on a side-by-side fitting thru doors. I have a tandem and it is even tight thru some doors, or racks of clothes.

If you are using it to go shopping, you may want to rethink the side by side. I personally have never had one, but I do know that most store aisles wouldn't be wide enough.
