Double Stroller-Rama Vol I

OK, with twins a'comin, there is a whole host of products that we'll need to invest in. Some might say a plethora, myriad, a whole bunch! One such item is a double stroller. I've asked on the various question posting sites which is better: side-by-side strollers or tandem strollers. I've gotten answers pro and con for each type. What's your experience? I thank you in advance for leaving your comments/experience/preferences/opinions/insights.

Featured Stroller: Peg Perego Duette SW

Though I haven't laid my hands on this babby buggy, from my view on the internet, it looks to be the Cadillac of double strollers. It looks pretty sturdy and has the following features:

  • Very easy to steer with unique, adjustable height, steering wheel handlebar
    4 large wheels with shock absorbers
  • Travel System compatible; Up to two Primo Viaggio SIP Car Seats (sold separately) attach directly to the chassis
  • Seats can be placed one behind the other of face-to-face
  • Seats come complete with hoods and warm covers
  • Centrally controlled brakes on the rear wheels
  • Can easily be carried even with children in it, using the side handles

In my experience, the side by side strolelrs are very hard to get through doorways, esp in stores, and through clothing racks etc... ALthough I've never had one, I've heard that the Peg Perego is the best and light-weight too!

If you really want to do PayPerPost, I can totally walk you through it. You can sign up off of my blog and your first post will be worth $20. Whoohoo! Good Luck!

had two boys 1 1/2 yrs. apart and used the combi side-by-side stroller-it was light weight and fit in almost every doorway (28"):

I didn't have the blessing(curse?) of needing a double so I can't speak deirectly to this model but I did find Peg Perego to be the best brand of stroller
