Having Twins? It’s A Blessing!
Are you having twins or are you planning to have a second baby while your first one is still on diapers? Well, it’s probably more practical to buy a double stroller as it comes in handy and very beneficial. Double strollers come in a wide variety, thereby allowing mothers to choose which of them would best suit their needs. There are tandem strollers, side-by-side strollers, sit-and-stand strollers, and in-line strollers that you can use. However, every double stroller has their own pros and cons. So before deciding on buying one, look through them first.
Pros of Using a Double Stroller
- Having more children can be difficult; you need to take care of the house, the babies, and yourself. And going out of the house doesn’t make parenting kids any less convenient as well. With the use of double strollers, it makes shopping for things and groceries a lot easier especially if you don’t have any adult company.
- If you have a child who’s big enough to walk but you don’t want to go around chasing them while carrying an infant, you might as well use double strollers to ease your job of babysitting them.
- You don’t have to switch to one stroller to another. Even if you have only one child, double strollers can come in handy especially if you’re doing the groceries. Choose the front-and-rear style stroller so you can use the front seat to carry the groceries or other items while shopping to make it easier for you to stroll around the mall.
Cons of Using a Double Stroller
- Although double strollers make your life easier, going to the groceries with your kids may be a hurdle as some aisles are wide enough to fit only two shopping carts. This is especially true for those who use the side-by-side stroller. This is a major disadvantage if you have smaller markets and restaurants that have tighter spaces.
- Double strollers are a disadvantage when you only have a small car to put it in. Some strollers are actually huge enough for a small-sized car. Therefore, it wouldn’t provide you as much benefits if you cannot transport it to places that you need to go without leaving the kids behind. Furthermore, there’s no place for double strollers if you take the bus or subways as they cannot be folded enough to fit in such compact spaces. Although jogging strollers may be folded up smaller, others may not be useful in such situations.
Given these pros and cons, choose strollers wisely. Assess your activities if they would fit you and not just its convenience.
