What To Consider When Buying A Double Buggy

Will you be using it from birth?

Most double buggies can be used from birth with a carry cot or in a seat that reclines to a lie-flat position. Some are complete travel systems which can be used with car seats too. Check though as some aren’t suitable from birth.

Tandem or side-by-side?

When your baby is newborn it’s nice to be able to keep an eye on them while walking along with your buggy, so you need to think about which way round the seats will be facing. For toddlers they are usually happy to be forward facing so they can check out what’s going on in the world! If you have twins you may want both of them to face you, so check out all of your options before you buy.

How heavy is the buggy?

Look for something lightweight which is easy to push and lift in and out of a car boot. With two kids in tow you are going to want something that isn’t going to weigh a tonne!

Width and Length of buggy

Check how wide the buggy you are purchasing is. You want to make sure you can get through a standard door frame without too much hassle. Side-by-side buggies have come a long way in recent years and there are some slimline ones out there. Alternatively if you are opting for a tandem buggy you are going to want something which isn’t too long and hard to manoeuvre. It may look narrow but sometimes controlling the tandem can be just as tricky.

Budget

One of the main things to consider when choosing a double buggy is the price. There are good double buggies to suit all budgets and we’ve included all of them in our article. Lower priced range from under £100-£300, Mid-priced range from £300-£700 and then Higher-priced range from £700-over £1,000.

FAQ’s Double Buggies

What is a double buggy?

A double buggy allows you to travel with two children at the same time.

You can choose between a twin buggy where your children sit side-by-side or a tandem buggy where one child sits in front of the other.

Are double buggies suitable for children of different ages?

If you’re buying a buggy for a baby and toddler then seats that can be reclined independently of each other are a good option.

Some double buggies can even turn back into a single buggy by removing the second seat.

Are double buggies worth it?

Toddlers can’t walk that far or at a quick pace, so a double buggy is really an essential item if you have a baby and toddler and want to get around outdoors.
