Twin strollers are not just for twins. You can get a double stroller for infants and toddlers too. Some double buggies can be quite big and heavy so a lot of people will opt for a double stroller. The first thing to decide between is a tandem stroller or a side by side double stroller.
Many people prefer a tandem double stroller as you will not have any issues fitting it through doors. It is as narrow as a single stroller. Shops and cafes don’t always accommodate for double side by side double strollers so if these are regular trips that you make an in-line stroller will be the best option for you. The Safety 1st Teamy is a great example of a double tandem stroller suitable for a new born and toddler. The rear seat is suitable from birth up to 15kg and the front seat is suitable from 6 months up to 15 kg.
Side by Side double strollers
The best thing about side by side double strollers is that both kids can see each other. As a parent you can see both children easily also as sometimes with tandem strollers it is hard to see the child in front. With two children you want both of them within easy reach! The Cosatto Supa Dupa is a perfect double stroller. Both seats are suitable from birth up to 15kg ideal for twins or new-born and toddler. Two footmuffs and raincover are included so you are covered all year round!
Our new favourite and top recommendation for a lightweight side by side double stroller would be the Cosatto Woosh Double Stroller. It has the most compact fold which can also be done with one hand! Each seat is suitable form birth up to 15kg. There is a range of colours available perfect for two girls, two boys or both boy and girl.
Top things to look out for when buying your double buggy
- Size and weight: they will be bigger than single strollers. Ensure it will fit through any necessary doors, fit in the boot of the car and it is not too heavy.
- If it is for an infant and toddler check if it is carrycot and car seat compatible.
So when it comes to choosing your double stroller, don’t just assume that all strollers are equal; some will suit your particular lifestyle far better than others. After that, it’s really about your budget and your personal preferences in terms of design.
