Strollers And Car Seats For Twins And Singletons

Strollers And Car Seats For Twins And Singletons

Your stroller and car seat decisions are big ones. There are so many options to choose from. Based on my experience the best ones are lightweight and small which makes it much easier when you are on the go. Below is my list of must have baby gear items for strollers and car seats. Lists for both twins and singletons are included.  Lastly, remember, to leave the hospital with your baby, you need to have your infant car seat safely installed.

Buy Before Baby Is Born

(1)* Infant Car Seat

We have the Graco Click Connect car seat and like it a lot.  I know Chicco is popular too.  I chose Graco because it is the lightest car seat, which is a big advantage when having twins:

(1)* Car Seat Base per car

(1) Stroller Travel System

I recommend opting for a stroller frame. It is much lighter than the convertible strollers. Once the baby can sit up it will be easier to get a lightweight umbrella stroller, rather than the bulkier, heavier convertible stroller.

Buy Before Or After Baby Is Born

(1)* Convertible Car Seat per car

When picking a convertible seat consider if you are planning to have more children. It could be important to pick convertible seats that will allow you to fit three car seats across in your car.  There are lists online of the seats that will do this for any size vehicle, including this post from Babycenter which I found helpful:

47 car seats that fit 3-across in most vehicles

(1) Umbrella Stroller

For the twins we had the Chicco Echo double stroller and we really liked it. For our singleton we have the Summer Infant 3D-one convenience stroller, which has also been reliable and very reasonably priced. There is a cheaper version called the 3D lite that also has good reviews, if you are looking to save some money.
