1. Maneuverability

  • Since a double stroller is used to carry your baby around when you go out, you will sure want to have one product which allows you to maneuver it without any difficulties. In addition, a good double stroller will make sure you can turn around easily as well.
  • The main factors that contribute to the maneuverability of a double stroller are its lightweight and compact design as well as its steering. Good steering will enable you to take the stroller on hard and uneven surface and compact design will get the stroller throughout small doors and space.
  • However, you need to make sure the stroller you are going to buy is not so small and can hold up to a large amount of weight as the stroller is for 2 babies, not one.

2. Easy Assembly

  • The best option you can find on the market is the foldable double stroller. It means that you will have much convenience in bringing it inside your car and store it in your house with limited space.
  • Make sure you purchase one double stroller with an easy assembly and disassembly process, which allow you to use single action to set up or fold. Try your best to avoid any double stroller that you need to take out a lot of parts before you can fold it.

3. Good Brakes

  • A good set of brakes will allow you to ensure safety for your babies while you and them travelling on the road. You need to try them to make sure they are easy to use and effective as well.
  • There are 2 options of brakes that you can use which are hand operated brakes and foot operated brakes. The choice for either type of brakes will depend on your preference so try them both and decide which one that you find easy to use quickly and effectively.

4. Weight Capacity

  • The weight capacity of the stroller you are going to choose will depend on how long you are going to use the double stroller. If you are intend to use it for a long time, you can consider one with higher weight capacity.
  • However, you need to keep in mind that higher weight capacity will add extra weight and space to the double stroller, affecting the maneuverability. So in case you want to use a baby stroller for 1 or 2 first years of your babies, you can consider a more compact one with lower weight capacity.
  • The design of the double stroller will also affect the weight capacity of the product. If you want to have a compact stroller to fit into your car, you will not be able to have a product with a lot of capacity.

5. Price

  • The final option that you need to consider is the price of the double stroller as there are a lot of different price ranges for you to choose from.
  • First of all, don’t go for a cheap product thinking that you are going to use it for a short time only. A cheap double stroller is made from poor quality and is would cause potential harm to your baby.
  • If you intend to use the stroller for a long time, you might consider a high quality stroller and it means that you need to pay a higher price. Although it is more expensive, over the long time, the cost per use will be decreased.
  • In addition, in order to get the best price for a double stroller, make sure you do some comparative shopping sessions, both to physical stores and online stores so that you can grab the best deal available.

These important features I mention above are the most important and essential characteristics you need to look for in any single double stroller you want to buy for your baby. If you are able to make sure that all of these characteristics in a double stroller are of good quality, there is no doubt that your babies will be safe and comfortable while being inside it.

Hi, I am Alfredo Baldwin and I am a single dad living in Taylorville, Illinois. My wife has passed away a few years ago after giving birth to our daughter, Maria. I have taken care of her when she only a few months old, as both a mom and a dad. The duty was heavy since I have no idea how to replace my wife’s position. The first thing I did is trying to ask the others mom’s breast feeding milk and it is not an easy task for a young man like me. My struggle was rewarded, Maria has grown up to a beautiful girl. I know that many single dads like me could have the same problems in rising our kids. So I decided to make my own blog at to share my own experience and knowledge to you.
