Best Twin Prams for Newborns

Best Twin Prams for Newborns

Parents looking for twin prams for newborns have a number of different options they can use – a twin or tandem/inline buggy.  Taking into account a range of criteria that includes: age range, width, weight, configuration, and ease to fold, this guide below compares the best options available today.

Twin Prams for Newborns? While twin prams often mean the seats are positioned side-by-side, rather than one in front of the other, or one seat stacked below the other – like a tandem pushchairs – this list covers all bases to allow new parents various options when deciding on the right twin pram for their new born.

Especially because twin prams are not just for twins – because as your twins get older you will require a pushchair and pram selection that can be used for older siblings of different ages, as well.

What to consider before buying twin prams for newborns:

Ease of use: Consider how easy it is to do the following with your twin pram:

  • steer and push
  • put up and collapse
  • get on and off buses and trains
  • wheel into and around shops

Also, consider how and where you’ll use your twin pram most. On country roads or city streets? Or do you need a light buggy that’s easy to steer, for navigating busy high streets?

Weight: Having two babies in a twin pram can make even the lightest double buggy twice as difficult to push around, pop up on a kerb or lift it up and down when indoors.  It is important to ensure you’re happy with the weight of your twin pram choice before you buy it.

Width:  There’s no avoiding it, a twin pram will often be wider or longer than a single buggy, so before you decide on the twin pram that works best for you, measure your doors and hallways to make sure it fits and you have space to store it.

Lying flat: For a pushchair to be suitable from birth with twins, it’ll either need two lie-flat carrycots or two completely lie-flat seats.  If you drive, you’ll probably find it handy to be travel system compatible, and fit two infant car seats on the frame as well.

Storage: Work out where you’ll keep your buggy when you’re not using it. Will you have to collapse it to create space whenever you’re not using it? This will mean that you can’t leave stuff in the storage tray, which you may find a pain when you’ve got double the baby kit to haul around. 

Measure your front door to make sure you can get the pushchair through. Some side-by-side pushchairs, especially those designed for jogging, can be huge. You don’t want to have to tip your pushchair sideways to get it in and out of your home. If you have a car, check that the pushchair folds neatly into the boot.
