Fab Strollers for Twins
While it is physically possible for one mom to successfully steer two strollers at the same time as finding something at the grocery store for dinner and wiping both babies' noses for the tenth time since stepping out of the car, why would you want to? There are so many great strollers for twins to choose from...
There are basically two types of twin strollers. The tandem, or one seat behind the other type, and the double, or one seat beside the other type. I prefer the double, side-by-side models hands down, but buying a twin stroller is a personal exercise, so keep reading to make up your own mind about which stroller will be best for you and your twins...
Trust me, buying the wrong stroller is a costly mistake that will drive you crazy every time you take your little ones out with you - eventually desperation will drive you to buy another one - I only got it right on the third attempt!
Feel free to submit a review of your own strollers for twins as well. It's easy to do and we value your advice and willingness to share with other parents.
Tandem Strollers for Twins
A tandem or duo stroller has one seat situated behind the other.
The big advantage of this model over the side-by-side version is that it is narrower and will fit through doorways, down aisles and through crowded areas without any problem.
The disadvantages are that it can be difficult to steer round corners because of its length, and sometimes only the back seat is fully reclinable. (Check this on any model you plan to purchase.) In addition, the storage compartment can be difficult to access, usually only the front seat has a snack tray and there is often restricted leg room in the back seat.
Double Strollers for Twins
A double or side-by-side stroller has the two seats next to one another.
The main advantages of this model over the tandem stroller are that it is usually easier to maneuver, storage space is easier to access and your twins can interact with one another while they sit beside one another.
The big disadvantage is the width, but most models have been redesigned so that they will now fit through standard doorways. (Check this on any model you plan to purchase.)

Not sure how you're going to cope with twins?
The tips in TWINS: THE SURVIVAL GUIDE are all practical and all twin specific. Simple tools and tricks that simply work, and work for managing twins, not singletons.
Many twins books, even those written by mothers of twins, slip back into the 'singleton' groove after a few chapters, describing problems and solutions applicable to any baby. This is not what this book is for.
This book is to help you solve the issues relevant to having twins - which is a very, very different deal to having one baby, or even two or three one-at-a-time children close in age.
If you are preparing for the birth of twins, or you already have twins and want to make your life easier, check out this book now.
