If you have twins, or a toddler and an infant, we know you’ve already got your hands full. Taking care of two little ones is a big job, even when both parents are around. When it’s only Mom or Dad, though, the challenges increase exponentially.
One of the toughest things to do with a pair of small children is leave the house. If your kids aren’t walking yet, you’re going to need something to transport them in: a double stroller.
Not surprisingly, there are a number of things to consider when choosing a 2 seat stroller. Likely at the top of your list is whether to select one where the children will sit side-by-side next to each other, or a so-called tandem stroller, where one sits in back and the other in front.
For twins, many people think the side-by-side models are preferable, as both children are the same size and there will be less squabbling about who gets stuck in the rear seat. For a toddler and infant, the tandem may be a better choice, especially since many of them allow the older child to stand in the back so they can see over the front seat. This is great if he or she has started walking, but gets tired.
Another option you might want to look into are jogging strollers. If you’re into fitness, finding time in a day filled with child care makes a trip to the gym nearly impossible. Instead, why not take the kids with you on a run, or even a brisk walk? Jogging strollers are designed with larger wheels and a variety of stabilizing features that allow you to move along at a good clip without risking the pram tipping over.
These are just a few of the choices you have if a double stroller makes sense for you and your family. Going with one of these will undoubtedly make things like shopping and family outings a lot easier. We hope this helped!
