Buying a stroller is one of the most important things on an expecting parents to do list. It’s always one of those difficult baby tasks, since a stroller is considered as a “big buy” and an item that will serve you for a long time. Finding the right stroller for you can be a long, and stressful process. The selection is huge, the price ranging from a few hundred dollars to thousands and when it comes to buying a double stroller it seems that it is twice as difficult.
How to pick the best double stroller for you? To answer that you should consider the following factors:
- Budget – What is your budget? This is basically the first thing you should consider. The most expensive strollers are not necessarily the best ones, but usually quality comes with a price tag. Today you can find a wide range of strollers to pick and each stroller has its’ cons and pros.
- Weight & Fold System – Some parents are always on the go and need their stroller to be light weighted and easy to fold. You need to make sure that the stroller you are going to buy will fit in your car and elevator if needed, and to keep in mind that a double stroller weighs more. Try to lift it and see how you are handling its weight and the folding system.
- Storage and Extras – Storage is important. Some strollers offer a lot of space to put all of your necessary on the go things and grocery bags, while other strollers don’t offer too much space or balance to carry a lot of baggage. Some strollers will offer a built in cup holder for your baby or mommy which is always a nice thing to have.
- Stroller Age Range – Some strollers will fit your babies from birth, while other will be less suitable for infants. If you are going to use the stroller from birth you should consider picking a stroller that accommodates an infant car seat but this one is not a must. What you really need it a stroller that comes with a bassinet and later on you can switch the bassinet to the walker recline Keep in mind that I personally recommend to choose a stroller that you can position with the seat facing forward or backward, so when your babies are still small you can see them easily. Choosing a stroller that can fit a newborn and also a toddler is actually a great stroller for close siblings, you can put your newborn in the bassinet while the big one sits in the walker.
After considering the factors, guess you have a better idea of what exactly you are looking for, so here is our list of the best double strollers for 2016.
