Top 2013 double strollers and strollers for twins
When looking for a double stroller, there are three basic types:
- Side-by-side strollers range in width from 25 inches to 33 inches. Most can only accept one infant car seat, but many have deep reclining seats that are suitable for newborn twins. Side-by-side double strollers are shorter in length than tandem strollers and usually offer better steering ability.
- Tandem strollers have front/back seating and so are usually the same width as a single stroller for ease of pushing in store aisles or through skinny doorways. These types of two-seat strollers are the longest, though, so steering may not be as effortless as other double stroller types.
- Convertible strollers can transform from a single to a double by adding a second seat. Some are best for newborn twins, and some are best for an older/younger sibling.
- Best strollers for twins need to be able to accommodate two newborns. This means the stroller must offer one of the following for your twin babies: reclined seats rated from birth, or option for two bassinets/carrycots, or option to carry two infant car seats.
