Today I've rounded up my three favorite double strollers and why I love them/what I use them for.
Two under Two
The only downside I would say is that at almost 3 and 19 months the boys prefer to sit next to each other in strollers rather than one behind the other so they tend to bicker more in this one and annoy each other. Matthew who is usually in the back finds great amusement in kicking Miller or putting things on his head which you can imagine goes well ;)
The Jogging Stroller
I knew without a doubt that I would want a Bob Dualie when I had two kids. Whether or not you run this is an awesome stroller! I had the single Bob Revolution with Miller so I knew this one would be as good. I have only run with my kids in this two maybe three times but we use it almost everyday to take our dog for a walk. This is also our stroller of choice for the zoo or park. We usually take this one to walk around Annapolis, Baltimore, or DC. It practically walks itself so you really don't have to work to hard even when you're pushing over 50lbs of kid.
The best part about Bob strollers is that they keep their value and do really well on the re-sale market. I got mine off Craigslist with a parent console, kids console, and rain cover for $400! They do go really fast, at least in my area, so I had to stalk Craigslist and local consignment stores pretty much daily until I found one in good condition, it's been well worth it though.
The only downside to the double Bob is that is big, really big. It's pretty much impossible to fit into any stores or the mall. It barely fits through a standard door opening and it takes up about 75% of the space in my Toyota Highlander trunk. So I wouldn't say it's a good everyday double stroller but if you're looking for something to be active with your kids I would suggest this one.
The only downside is that since it's an umbrella stroller I don't think it would hold up to the wear and tear of an everyday stroller.
The Runner Up
This stroller was a big contender against the Baby Jogger City Select but it didn't have a car seat adapter for our Chicco keyfit 30 so I decided against it. Now that my kids are older though I would love to have one but at this point I don't think it's worth it to purchase another double stroller. I think if you're waiting to get a double until your infant can sit on their own then I would suggest this one. I think in the long run for an older toddler and infant this one is a great choice.
So there you have it! Feel free to comment or email me if you have any questions.
Do you have a double stroller? Do you love yours? What brand do you use?
