Introducing the Lineup
Side-by-side strollers allow both passengers to feel equally important riding up front. This is a preferred arrangement for twins so that both seats carry about the same weight and keep the stroller balanced. Maneuvering is a bit more difficult, due to the width of the double stroller.
The double jogging stroller allows parents to jog with their babies. Larger wheels handle most terrains, and streamline styling lets the parent run and steer with one hand. Models with a front wheel that swivels and locks in place for running can be used for regular outings.
Taking Advantage of a Good Thing
When on a shopping trip, two kids and a stroller built for one is living life on the edge. While tending to the younger child in the stroller, the older child could be hiding under clothes racks or removing every price tag from every garment on the rack, which will infuriate the store clerk and make you want to run for cover - it happens! Making your way through masses of people with a baby in a sling and a toddler in a stroller is a cumbersome overload. And staying home is just wrong. A double stroller lets you pack the kids into a safe environment structured to suit their needs and allows a growing family to tackle busy schedules and enjoy some playtime.
You will want a stable double stroller with ergonomic handles, smooth turning wheels, a reliable brake system, individually adjustable seats, protective canopies, padded seats, footrests, organization tray, cup holders, toy bars, and storage baskets. If you're new to the double stroller market, this may seem like a lot of extras; nevertheless, these are the building blocks for a double stroller that will make life with multiple children much easier.
