Buying a Double Pushchair From Birth

A double pushchair is a great option if you love long walks with your toddler and are planning to have a second child. Luckily there are many choices to choose from.

Most tandem buggies are able to adapt to different configurations. For example, some have reversible seats that let siblings face each other or to the side.


It is important to keep in mind that double buggies tend to be larger than single buggies. It is important to ensure that your buggy fits through the doors of your home and be able to easily maneuver up and over stairs and kerbs.

Double strollers typically come in two basic forms that are tandem and side-by-side. Tandem buggies are the best option for parents with twins. Side-by-side strollers are ideal for children of all ages and can be converted into a single-to-double stroller by adding a seat.

Most tandem buggies are designed with the seats facing each other and offer a variety of seat configurations permitting your children to view each other when they ride. However, if your kids are close enough in age to be able to get along (or at least not argue over who has the most comfortable seat!) then you may discover that they’re more comfortable side by side rather than facing one another.

The iCandy Venus is a great option for families with twins, or younger siblings who require seating together. This stylish, budget-friendly buggy can also be used in conjunction with an infant car seat so it can grow with your family. iCandy includes extra accessories, like fleecy liners to ensure that your baby stays warm and snug in their cocoons.

Egg2 is a great alternative for families growing. This sleek pushchair, which is popular with parents who are a bit glam, can be used either as an individual stroller or as a double stroller thanks to its adaptors, which allow you to include a seat or carrycot. It’s not the most affordable smallest double buggy stroller available, however it does come with unique features that set it apart from competitors, including a large shopping basket that sits behind the seat in the parent-facing position.


The majority of double buggies tend to be heavier and bulkier than single buggies, so bear this in mind when contemplating buying a vehicle that will last several years. However, they offer more storage space, usually with a larger basket for shopping. They usually also have seating that is facing the parent, with an extendable sunshade and peekaboo window, as well with seats that recline independently. Some models have an adjustable leg and foot rest that can be adjusted to alleviate any discomfort caused by long walking or prolonged periods of sitting.

The most popular double buggy styles include side-by-sides and tandems. Tandems are designed to have the children placed side by side and give them the same view. It can also aid in avoiding sibling fights over who gets to sit where. However, they’re still not foolproof, and kids may punch or kick each one another while riding. Side-by-sides are a more traditional model, featuring two fixed seats arranged on the same frame of a stroller. They may not offer as many configurations, and they’re usually best for babies who have mastered sitting without assistance but don’t need the back support of an infant car seat.

If you’re looking to purchase a light double from birth Our lab experts recommend the Cybex Venus. This clever model can be changed from mono to twin mode by expanding the width. It can accommodate one or two infant seats or carrycots. It’s also compact when folded and has a large shopping basket and rear and front suspensions to ensure a smoother ride. The seats include the RumbleSeat are padded and comfortable, as well as adjustable foot and leg rests. They also have a large UPF 50+ canopy, which provides plenty of shade.

Another great option is the Baby Jogger City Mini GT2. It’s a two-in-one pushchair, just like the Venus. It is possible to configure it to meet your requirements. The pushchair can be configured to accommodate twins or a single infant seat. You can also add the Baby Jogger Glider Board as an additional child. The seat reclines independently, and the City Mini GT2 has some of the best maneuverability among double buggies. Testers noted that it was easy to move up and down kerbs.


The seat padding and fabrics are comfortable for both kids, plus the UPF 50+ canopy is large enough to provide real shade and offers a cute peekaboo window. The seat can recline in a variety of positions, too which our test subjects loved. The only issue with this model is that it’s not quite as compact as other models. However, our lab experts said it could be opened and closed with ease.

Double strollers are traditionally heavier and bulkier, as well as more expensive than single buggies, however they’re a must-have for families with two kids who are close in age (generally under 4). Choose a brand that is designed to last for many years and retain its value.

Tandem buggies were originally one-person pushchairs, but they can be fitted with adaptors that permit the addition of an additional seat or carrycot or (in certain cases) the car seat to the frame. Some are fixed doubles, but others – such as this one made by Leclerc can be converted to a side-by-side configuration when your children are ready for it.

A side-byside double buggy is usually larger than other types, but it is more maneuverable over kerbs as the weight is distributed more evenly. It’s not a guarantee to prevent sibling fights. Children in the same seat may punch or kick each other while riding.

A front-facing tandem could be an excellent alternative to a side by side model for older children. It can also lessen the chance of fighting between siblings as your kids are not directly facing each other. Some children might feel excluded when a tandem faces forward, as they don’t get the same view.

The egg2 features a sleek modern design and attractive price. Our testers liked how easy it was to push but they wished it had more storage. They also wished the handlebars were more comfortable. It’s suitable from birth and can be used as a twin stroller starting at the time of birth. It’s not the least expensive double stroller on the market, but it is competitively priced and has excellent selling value.
