Twin vs Tandem Pushchair: Which is Best? 8th November 2018 – Posted in: Pushchairs
About to become the parent of twins? This is an exciting time, but also one that comes with a lot of preparation. After all, you’re welcoming not one but two babies, and while this may seem overwhelming, there are some great products out there for mums and dads of multiples, including pushchairs to help you get out and about.
Just like with a single pushchair, pushchairs for twins come with a lot of choices, starting with a twin or tandem style. Which you choose is down to preference, but we’re here to help you make the decision that’s best for you and your babies.
Twin Pushchair: Pros and Cons
A twin pushchair is one that is side-by-side. When they get older, there won’t be any arguments over who gets the front seat that way! With your babies right next to each other, it is easier to feed them both at the same time and they get to play and interact with each other a lot easier.
Many twin pushchairs can be lightweight and break down easily if needing to put it in the car or store away. You can also find all-terrain twin pushchairs, ideal for the family that like to go on walks.
There are a few disadvantages, with the most obvious one being the size. The width of a twin pushchair isn’t always convenient. Although every effort is made to be able to make models that will fit, there is no one standard door frame, so you may struggle even getting in and out of the house or other places where the door frames are a bit too snug.
Tandem Pushchair: Pros and Cons
Tandem pushchairs are perfect if space is an issue. They are a great twin pushchair from birth since they are easier to use without disturbing a sleeping baby. Tandems can be travel systems, meaning you can move your baby from the car seat to the pushchair and simply lock it in. This iCandy Peach Tandem double pram offers comfort with a seat that moves into four different positions and will grow with your child up to 25kg.
Tandem pushchairs are great for space, but they can be heavier and will require more work to dismantle. They can also feel awkward to push. Always try one out to see how you find pushing it.
