Good, better, best: Double strollers for twins worth your hard-earned cash

Blessed with two newbie nuggets? Having twins is a daunting delight. Twice the snuggles, double the chubby cheeks, and all the sleepless nights. One trying task that you may face before the babies even make their grand tandem entrance? Finding gear to accommodate both your love bugs. Arguably the biggest baby purchase you will make for your cuties is a double stroller. It will help you cart your itty-bitties around from Day 1 through the even more challenging toddler phase.

Already feeling overwhelmed? We got your back — and your shopping list covered. Here are our top three twin stroller picks — taking price, functionality, and features all into consideration.

Good: Contours Options Elite Tandem Stroller in Graphite

This tandem-style double stroller for twins offers seven versatile seating and positioning options to accommodate your babies and their two infant car seats (adapters are sold separately). With front- and rear-wheel suspension, this option is lightweight for easy maneuverability and ultimate on-the-go convenience. Each seat can accommodate up to 40 pounds. It folds easily with the seats snapped in and stands on its own for a simple store-anywhere solution. It has expandable UPF 50 canopies for sunny days and boasts ample storage for shoving all of the things in all of the places — because #twinmomlife.

Why we like it:

  • 7 seating options
  • Lightweight and folds easily
  • Features a UPF 50 canopy

Better: Baby Jogger City Select Double Stroller 

The Baby Jogger City Select double stroller offers a whopping 16 different configurations for your cutie-pies. Double-tiered, you can use two car seats, two bassinets, one bassinet, and a single seat, and try many other possible permutations. It features Baby Jogger’s simple signature one-handed fold — because twin parents definitely need ease of use. Weighing 28 pounds, it offers front-wheel suspension and great maneuverability. Five-point harnesses keep your bubs safe, while extendable canopies offer ample sun protection.

Why we like it:

  • 16 seating options
  • Folds easily
  • Has extendable canopies for sun protection

Best: Bugaboo Donkey 3 Duo bassinet and seat stroller

The Cadillac of double strollers is the Bugaboo Donkey 3 Mono Stroller. It can be used as a single, but it is easily upgraded to become a stellar option for twins with the inclusion of the duo extension kit. You can configure it multiple ways. It features adjustable handlebars to accommodate all caregivers’ heights, rear-wheel brakes, lockable front-swivel wheels, expandable side luggage for storage, large UPF canopies with peek-a-boo flap windows, mesh side panels for comfort and breathability, and more. It is a hefty and sturdy ride, but it actually does fit through most standard doorways — which is a major win for parents.
Why we like it:
  • Features adjustable handlebars
  • Has rear-wheel brakes and lockable front-swivel wheels
  • Has expandable side luggage for storage

Starting your search for a baby stroller for twins can feel like a huge undertaking. Moreover, many new parents may not initially realize that some double-stroller options are actually not ideal for two babies; rather, they are made for one infant and one toddler. So before you start browsing, make a list of what you want in a double stroller. What are your non-negotiable must-haves? Do you have a budget? Does it need to take two bassinets? Do you even care about color and style? Or, perhaps you are looking for all the bells and whistles. These three options are all great for different reasons — so do your due diligence, and get your gear on!

The 6 best burp cloths you should keep in your nursery
mom holding and burping baby

It is an undisputed fact that as a parent, having burp cloth proves to be essential for numerous reasons. The primary one relates, of course, to burping your baby and having a handy covering that protects your clothing when he or she spits up. Likewise, this keeps you from having to grab a receiving blanket or towel. Plus, burp cloths happen to be an alternative clean-up tool when spills or other mishaps occur—which is often the case when you have a newborn. Therefore, keeping this information in mind, we have searched for and found the 6 best burp cloths for you to choose from and why they’re necessary for your nursery and diaper bag.

What is a burp cloth?
To begin with, the term explains it all.  When burping your baby, as mentioned, spit-ups will happen, or even when your newborn is just relaxing on your lap, out of nowhere, he or she goes projectile. The burp cloth saves the day—or at least your clothes from smelling like milk.

7 incredible baby-clothing storage ideas to make your life simpler
Drawer full of baby clothes

Baby clothes may be tiny, but you sure need a lot of them! Between spit-ups, feedings, and diaper blow-outs, not to mention temperature changes, babies need way more outfits than grown-ups. You need a place to store the pajamas, hats, booties, bodysuits, pants, and so on, and you need it all to be easily accessible when you need them.
These baby-clothing storage ideas will help you figure out how to organize baby clothes in a functional and stylish way that saves you precious space.
For those little odds and ends
Inside a top dresser drawer or on top of a changing table caddy, use these organizers for socks, mittens, shoes, headbands, hats, and other accessories. Beyond clothing, these also work for pacifiers, diaper cream, and any other small items that would fill up a messy drawer. Easily access everything you need with this set of 12 organizer fabric boxes.
For out-of-season clothes and the next size up
Store bathing suits in winter and sweaters in summer (as well as all of the older-baby clothing waiting its turn) in under-crib storage. This option has dividers, which you'll want when you've taken the time to sort your 2T hand-me-downs from the 3T and don't want to put them all in together. Simply slide it under the crib and forget it until you need it, then slide it right out with the handle to access it.
For organizing dresser drawers
You can fill a full-size adult dresser with all the clothing your baby needs (especially if you use any leftover drawer space for bedding and other nonclothing items that need storage), but the drawers are so large that the tiny clothing items will only fill up a fraction of the area per clothing type. Use these adjustable drawer dividers to divide the space so that you have separate areas in each drawer for pants, onesies, and shirts that won't bleed together and get mixed up.
For labeling dresser drawers
From the outside, a dresser hides the piles of clothing inside, which can be nice for covering clutter. But since you can't see what's inside, you may end up opening every drawer until you find what you're looking for. With baby clothes, there are types of clothing cycled out often (T-shirts in one season and sweaters in the next), so you may forget where one category belongs, especially with the lack of sleep.

Label the outside of your drawers with these cute chalkboard sticky labels that come with an erasable chalk marker so that you can change your labels from 0-3 to 3-6 as they grow. With drawer dividers, most drawers will be doing double or triple duty, so these labels will help you remember where the newborn-size pants are stored.
For hangables
If you have a closet, hang up as much as you can to use that horizontal space off the floor. Finding what you're looking for among the dozens of hanging items can be tricky, so save your time with these adorable wooden closet dividers that let you know which clothing size is located in what section. With everything separated by size, you'll be able to find the right item much quicker.
For maximizing closet space
All of the vertical space in your nursery's closet is prime space and shouldn't go unused. Use this hanging closet organizer with five drawers, two shelves, and three side pockets to use for clothing as well as diapers, and more. There are dividers within some of the drawers that can be used for socks and other small items. Easily Velcro this to the closet rod, and it will hold up to 30 pounds of baby gear.
For everything in one
If you're looking for a kid-friendly look, this child dresser can be used in several different ways to store clothing, toys, bedding, books, blankets, and more. There is even space to hang up some items, which is perfect if you don't have a built-in closet in your nursery. The cute design will fit right in in a baby's space, and it's practical for you.
