In any park on a sunny summer beautiful day the majority of people walking are mothers with their babies in their pushchairs. Children’s doctors together with the nurses, who visit regularly to the homes of these new parents, remind them diligently that it is a must to walk the baby every day and the more that the little one is out of doors the better.
Supporters of “airing” can be divided into two groups; those who prefer pushchairs and those that admire baby slings. However, in spite of the fact that the latter innovation is quite comfortable and handy those parents who are lucky to have two little babies are sure to prefer double strollers rather than carrying them in a baby sling. Moreover the pushchair provides the baby with a comfy sleep and protects them from bad weather rain, snow in the winter.
Who needs double pushchairs?
If you think that double pushchairs are a perfect innovation only for those families who have got twins you can be far from being right. There is no doubt that parents who have more than one child with one year’s difference of age between them will find their long walks more pleasant and less stressful using these kind of strollers.
So while buying a double pushchair for your children it is advisable to know the following:
Nowadays when every baby store is literally overloaded with prams it is quite easy to find what you need. You just have to know what you need. As each pushchair comes with a various set of features you should choose the one which is right for you.
For example if the new parents are going to push the stroller through rough terrains which is next to their house they need to choose a pram with a good suspension system.
Adjustable handles are a perfect salvation for families where there are several people who walk with the baby and thus it is necessary for the handles to be adjusted to match their personal needs. Otherwise some of them may incur a damaging effect on the lower back if they always push the stroller at an uncomfortable angle.
Having adjustable handles is as important as having lockable wheels though many parents tend to forget to check this feature when choosing pushchairs for the babies.
While choosing a twin pushchair in baby store see if the gap between the back of the pram and your feet are at an appropriate good distance to keep you from constantly bumping into the pushchair.
If you are active and use to travel by car make sure that the size of the folded up double fits your car boot. In order to see if it matches you need to measure its height and width, obviously the best idea is to try the chosen one if it fits until you buy it. Unfortunately in most cases performing this kind of a critique is difficult to do.
Now when the most important features are determined the only thing you have to do is to choose the best one for you and your children. For satiety’s sake never leave your babies in the prams without your attention.
