Tips For Using a Side by Side Double Stroller

Aug 19, 2008
The double stroller is a miraculous invention for the multiple child household. It is easy to maneuver through malls, streets and parks. It is fairly lightweight and can be pushed very easily by even the tiniest of grandmothers. There are numerous accessories that can be purchased to keep the children safe from the elements as well as increase storage capacity. These few tips will make the double stroller even more efficient.

Weight Distribution

If you have children of different weights sitting beside each other than place the heavier items you bring with you behind the lighter weight child. This will distribute the weight more evenly and allow for easier maneuverability.

Heavy Terrain

If you plan on using your double stroller on dirt paths or grassy fields look for a brand with a heavy-duty wheel. If you did not purchase this type of double stroller than remove as much weight from the stroller as possible to make it easier to push.

Thirsty and Hungry Children

If you find yourself stopping every few minutes to give your child a drink or something to eat consider purchasing a few different accessories. There is a strap that will clip onto a baby bottle and then onto the stroller thereby preventing a child from flinging it out of the stroller. There is also a cup holder that can attach to the stroller beside the child's seat and hold a sippy cup. Along with the cup holder you can purchase a small bag that will also attach to the stroller next to the child that can hold snack items.

Thirsty and Hungry Mommy and Daddy

There are cup holders available for adults too. Some are insulated to keep drinks hot or cold. Be very careful where you use the drink holder for a hot drink, as you do not want it to spill on your child. There are also organizers that can attach to the top of the stroller for parents to put their own snacks in.

Traveling with your Double Stroller

If you are flying with your stroller you can protect it from getting banged up by purchasing a carrying case. Usually you will need to fold up the double stroller and remove the wheels for packing. But this extra effort will save on wear and tear of the stroller.

Climate Control

Always be prepared for the elements. There are many coverings you can purchase that will protect your children from rain, wind, strong sunlight and even mosquitoes. Many of these coverings will fold up into small pouches for easy storage in your double stroller.

Keeping Calm

A bored child is usually a cranky child. There are now many toys on the market that can attach directly to your double stroller and keep you children occupied for many hours. Look for toys with bright colors and multiple functions so they will keep the child's attention.

These are just a few tips to keep mom, dad and babies all happy and content on outings with their double stroller. Remember to try and plan ahead for all events and circumstances and you will find the pushing is much easier!! Happy strolling!!
