A Little Background
Strollers come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are designed to fit various needs. There are single strollers and umbrella strollers and then there are double stroller types which are usually used by twins or siblings. Depending on your location, lifestyle and way of taking care of the kids, strollers you should buy should also be highly adaptive and useful to your way of life.
When you have siblings or twins, it can be hard to just buy two strollers at the same time and use them, and this is why double strollers can be useful. A double stroller is a great way to take two kids out simultaneously, whether it is two newborn twins, an infant and a toddler or two toddlers in one go.
Double strollers are unlike regular strollers – they can take up two kids at the same time. They are usually heavier than regular strollers because of their weight capacity and space. Unlike single strollers, a double stroller is quite spacious but can fit a lot of stuff because two kids mean double the maintenance during any trip to Disneyland or to a local park.
Double strollers have max weight capacity ratings specifically for each seat and can be combined as a whole. Typically, this falls between 30 to 45 pounds per seat and around 70 to 90 pounds as a whole stroller.
How We Picked
When it comes to the best and most reliable double stroller, we based on:
Portability – the fact that the double stroller can be easily taken to any place with convenience is a good feature. This also includes the easiness of the folding mechanism of the double stroller. If you plan to take your babies out for a walk, you should consider that folding is very hard to do when you are maintaining two kids at the same time, so you should definitely get a double stroller that is easy to fold.
Flexibility – the folding mechanism and the reclining features of the double stroller should be considered. There are reclining seat designs for most double strollers which also allow your newborn or toddler to sleep on the trip as it can fully recline flat.
Comfort factor – double strollers should be generally comfortable due to their purpose as a carrying tool for children and even newborn babies. The thick padding of the seats helps add comfort to the double stroller. In addition to that, a well ventilated wall and construction for the double stroller is highly important to keep the oxygen flowing within the space of your children.
Protection – the most important job of a double stroller is to protect your babies from the elements and other outside factors. A sun roof or a canopy is a great feature for any double stroller, especially if it really gets hot in your area or it drizzles a lot. You should get a double stroller with a great SPF or UPF value to protect your kids.
Weight capacity – this is also important when choosing the best double stroller. At the very most, you will find a double stroller that has a max weight capacity of 30 to 45 pounds per seat.

Design – of course, this feature comes last when it comes to the best double stroller but is also important so that your babies or twins stroll at the park or in the mall in style. A stylish design helps your babies to maintain poise at the park or over at Disneyland.
Accessibility – you would definitely need a double stroller with a ton of storage. Managing two kids is a big challenge so you need to prepare a lot of items such as diapers, bottles and of course, your own refreshments. You can also bring toys if you like and this will help your kids to cheer up during the trip.
Steering and maneuverability – you should definitely get a double stroller that can be easily steered and maneuvered like a car or SUV. The wheels should be easy to turn and have a locking mechanism as well.
Safety – the harness and brake system of the double stroller should be considered so that your kids stay safe in the stroller. This is highly important so that your children do not wander off.
