Choosing a double pram

If you have two young children, you’ve already got your hands full. The last thing you need to worry about is a double pram or stroller that’s frustrating to use when you’re out and about. Read on to find out more about the different types of double prams and strollers available, to help you choose right the first time around.

Types of Double Prams

Side-by-side double prams

  • Configuration: These are designed with two seats placed next to each other, in a short row (as pictured above).
  • Friendly for these bubs: Suitable for transporting two newborns, two toddlers or one baby and one toddler.

Pros

  • The most versatile double strollers as they accommodate all the possible newborn and toddler combinations. This is convenient if you have multiple kids under 4 years old.
  • You can see both babies at once, as the side-by-side configuration allows for clear visibility of both bubs at all times.
  • Suitable for newborn twins as seats tend to be fully reclinable. This is a must for newborns. Seats must recline past 130 degrees to allow newborns to breathe properly, and for their hips to develop.
  • More lightweight than tandem prams.

Cons

  • Less suitable for the combination of a newborn and 4 or 5-year old. The older child will outgrow the pram soon - leaving you with a newborn next to an empty seat, and a wide, bulky pram.
  • Bulky design compared to single-to-double convertible prams.
  • Wider than other types of double prams, making them more difficult to fit through narrow spots like doorways, aisles, or through bus doorways.
  • Heavy build makes them harder to manoeuvre over a kerb or up a set of steps.

Tandem prams

  • Configuration: Tandem prams feature two seats in a line (they are also called inline prams). One seat is positioned in front of the other.
  • Friendly for these bubs: Offering less possible combinations than side-by-side prams, tandem prams are suitable for two toddlers, or one newborn and one toddler. The rear seat is usually newborn-friendly, but not always. Set the seat to the maximum recline angle to allow newborns to sleep with unobstructed airways.

Pros

  • More streamlined design than side-by-side prams makes it easier to navigate tandem prams through narrow spaces.
  • Can convert to sit-and-stand strollers for selected models. This equips the pram with more versatility, as it can be used by toddlers and children 3-5 years old.

Cons

  • Unsuitable for newborn twins, who require a side-by-side pram with seats that can recline fully flat.
  • Awkward design that’s long in shape means parents or carers may have trouble fitting tandem prams in smaller car boots. It can also be tricky manoeuvring the pram over the kerb or up some stairs.
  • Can’t see both children as the front child is further away than in a single pram.

Single-to-Double Convertible prams

  • Configuration: These single-seater prams come with a toddler add-on - an extra seat that you can attach to the pram.
  • Friendly for bubs: These prams can be used as either a single pram or double pram, depending on whether you’re transporting one bub or two. Suitable for a newborn baby and toddler, or two toddlers.

Pros

  • Suitable for growing families. If you have a newborn and an older child who will soon outgrow a stroller, you can remove the toddler add-on whenever you’re ready. This will leave you with a single-functionality pram that’s easier to use.
  • Flexible seat configuration options as you often get the choice of fitting the extra seat to the front or rear of the pram.
  • More lightweight than other double prams.

Cons

  • Less features available for single-to-double prams compared to other double prams. If you have twins, it may be preferable to opt for a model that’s permanently a double pram.
  • Unsuitable for two newborns, as toddler seats aren’t fully reclinable. Some single-to-double prams will have a fully reclinable seat - but not both seats.
  • Less stable than other double prams and can tip over more easily. To help prevent this, kids must be put into the pram and taken out in a specific seat order, according to manufacturer instructions.
  • Can’t be used for newborn twins, as the toddler seats aren’t fully reclinable.

Sit-and-stand prams

  • Configuration: The design of these prams is a little bit different - an innovative way to accommodate two kids with a 3-5 year age gap.
  • Friendly for these bubs: A baby or toddler can sit in the pram seat, and a toddler or child up to 5 years in age can stand (and sometimes also sit) in the rear section of the pram. These can also be a fun option for older twins.

Pros

  • Much more compact than other types of double strollers, sit-and-stands are easy to manoeuvre and to pack away in a car boot.
  • More entertaining for toddlers or older kids who feel restricted sitting in a pram seat next to a younger sibling.

Cons

  • Can be less safe for a toddler or older child sitting or standing if there is no strap that secures them in place. An abrupt stop or a bump in the road could cause them to fall off or, if sitting, hit their head against the pram frame.
  • Designed with smaller wheels which don’t handle rough surfaces very well.
  • Kids might complain if you have older twins who both prefer the sit/stand option, or if an older child gets tired of standing up the whole time.
