What is the best stroller out there for parents of twins??? I started wondering this even before the babies were born. The simplest answer is you will need to have several (at least 2) strollers to in order to make your life easier. I have gone through multiple strollers and my twins aren’t even 1 year yet! The first and foremost stroller you need to purchase is a “snap and go” (also know as “click and go”. This is the type of stroller where you can just click the infant carrier carseats onto the metal frame of the stroller. And voila – you and your babies are mobile! In my opinion the best place to purchase one is craigslist. You can pick one up for as little as $50. If you prefer to purchase one new, you can buy them at BabiesRUs for about $125.
The next type of stroller you will need is a “sport utility” type stroller. This stroller will be easy to take on hikes and trails, it will be great walking in the sand at the beach and ideal for camping. Many twin moms love the Bob Revolution Duallie. Alternatively there is the Baby Jogger City Mini, or the Double Chariot (which is also a bike trailer)
And just when you think you’ve got everything covered, your babies will outgrow the double snap and go, and you will need to purchase an “umbrella” type stroller in order to get you into the store / mall / restaurant / airport with as little hassle as possible. Some popular umbrella types include: Maclaren Twin Techno or Twin Triumph , Baby Jogger City Select or the Jeep Double Stroller. You might be thinking “This is going to cost me a fortune!” But it doesn’t have to… I suggest splurging on one stroller (the most popular splurge seems to be on the sport utility stroller) and then finding an umbrella and snap & go stroller second hand. OR you can do what I did and splurge on your umbrella stroller ( I bought the city select) and found a second hand Chariot Stroller on Craigslist and Double Snap and Go at a Swap Meet. Whichever way you choose just bare in mind that you are probably not going to have just one stroller.
