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.

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!
