Looking for a Double Stroller?
When I got pregnant with Rowan, I knew I wanted and needed a double stroller. The boys are just over 2 years apart, and I knew Chan wouldn’t be able to walk everywhere when Rowan made his debut. Plus, we love going for walks. I didn’t do much research and bought the first double stroller I found. I settled on a tandem. It seemed to do the job, but as the boys got bigger, I noticed it got harder and harder to push. I found myself leaning into the stroller and really working hard anywhere we went. When I got the opportunity to review the Indie Twin by bumbleride, I was more than thrilled. You definitely know you are a mom when a new stroller feels like Christmas. I immediately began to compare it to my tandem stroller and was shocked at how easy it was to push and how smooth the ride was. I noticed the boys interacting more with each other and was pleased to see how well I could jog with it. It definitely makes me motivated to exercise!
As an introduction to the bumbleride, I wanted to actually show you some of the pros and cons of both a tandem and side by side stroller – basically a comparison. For those of you looking at double strollers, I hope this will give you a little guidance as to what kind of stroller you will buy.
If you can’t tell by the video, the way the stroller manuevers is definitely my favorite feature.
A few more reasons I prefer the side by side Indie Twin:
- Each child has a great view. In a tandem stroller, the child in the back has a limited view. I would often notice Rowan fussing and sticking his head out the side the older he got. He just couldn’t see very well.
- Although the tandem stroller is better for very crowded places and malls, both seats do not fully recline. Both seats on the bumbleride fully recline.
