Choosing the Best Double Stroller
The process of buying a twin stroller can be very stressful! When you’re looking through these double stroller reviews, here’s a few things you should consider to help you relax.
First, you don’t need to buy your big ticket double stroller right away. You can get away with using a universal car seat adapter stroller like the Baby Trend Double Snap N Go to stroller with your infant car seat carriers for a long time. Many twin parents don’t invest in a traditional double stroller until their twins are getting close to sitting up independently, around 5-6 months. So don’t worry if you don’t have your dream stroller picked out and bought before delivery. You may not even use it that much for the first few months (unless you can snap 2 car seats into it — then that would be a good reason to buy it earlier.)
Next, make sure that if you buy a tandem stroller you’re picking one with enough legroom as your twins grow. Many strollers that can convert from a single stroller to a tandem stroller (with a seat attachment) don’t have enough room in the back seat for a toddler. These strollers are really made for people with one toddler (in the front seat) and one infant (in the back seat). For twins, we highly recommend buying a traditional tandem stroller. That means a stroller that is only for two children and can’t be converted to just a single stroller. These twin strollers typically have a lot more leg room between the front and back seat. You want me to make sure the stroller you buy is a versatile stroller that will last you through preschool.
Best Features in a Double Stroller for Twins
Look for quality features, such as:
- an extra-large storage basket
- toddler seats with high weight limits (that hold at least 40 pounds per seat)
- adjustable handlebars

- a stroller seat with a five-point harness
- sun protection extendable canopy
- a narrow frame that can fit through narrow doorways
- the ability to hold two infant car seats
- all-wheel suspension
- toddler seats with extra storage pockets
- a comfortable ride
- mesh pockets
- the ability to fit into tight spaces
- air rear wheels
- larger wheels in the back
- a compact fold

- rain cover

Don’t Skimp on a Double Stroller
Finally, don’t skimp. If you’re going to be using your twin stroller a lot, invest more in a quality stroller that will last you for 4-5 years. So many twin moms cut corners on quality features and end up regretting it, and wind up buying a better stroller later in the game. Save yourself the time and frustration and get a good quality stroller. This will set you back at least $300 if you’re buying new. But if you’re crafty you can find more expensive strollers in resale groups in good condition.
Just a reminder that if you buy an expensive stroller and keep it in good shape throughout the years, you will likely be able to sell it someday for a nice price and make a lot of your money back. Make sure to clean your stroller often and store it correctly, either indoors or if you must store it outside cover it with a good tarp to avoid weather damage.
