If you have a baby and a toddler, you will certainly love double strollers. You may even regard them as the best invention on earth. Double strollers are godsend for many parents. But, not every double stroller on the marketplace offers all the features you need. So, you got to do your research before you buy one for yourself. Let’s take a look at the things you need yo consider before buying a double stroller.

Is it the ideal size?

Imagine buying a double stroller, only to find out later that it doesn't fit your home’s door and your car’s trunk! How would you feel?

So, here is a tip: check the dimensions first. Many parents assume that they can easily store and transport any double stroller. That’s not true. There are double strollers that are monsters in size! You can't get them fit through standard doors no matter what you do and you'll end up returning them.

So, make sure the width of the stroller is large enough to accommodate your kids but not so large that it wouldn't fit through standard doors. Also, check if height of handlebars is comfortable for both you and your spouse. Get a double stroller with adjustable handlebars if you and your spouse have different heights.

Is it safe and comfortable?

Best double strollers are lightweight and easy to maneuver. Heavy and large double strollers are difficult to push. Usually, double strollers are considerably heavier than single strollers. So, check the weight of the stroller before making your purchase.

There are some features you should look for to ensure your kids’ safety. Ideally, you should get a double stroller with five point safety harness and cushioned seats and headrests - these features provide comfort and safety for your kids. Also, check if the seats can recline to provide comfortable seating for your children when they nap.

These are the most important points you must bear in mind while buying double strollers. Remembering these will help you find the best double stroller for your family.
