As a mom of four, with a fear of losing my youth card I have opted to squeeze my kiddos into a more hip SUV, and without captain seats or extra storage in back I am limited with the amount of “stuff” I can bring. That being said, any mom of multiples, (either multiple children of a similar age or two at the same age) knows that sometimes “stuff” that keeps your toddlers occupied and out of reaching for things is worth it on every trip.
So to compromise on space and still allowing my four year old to move in and out of the back seat I have opted to use a more slender double stroller than my normal tandem double stroller.
The side-by-side stroller is a gamble with two rambunctious boys who like to mess with each other and nowhere to go while strapped next to each other. However, it actually feels like they enjoy this enough and they still feel like they are in their own seats rather than a love seat type double stroller.
The foldability of this stroller is pretty easy, although the one downfall is the fact that the umbrella stroller is top heavy while folded and will not stay upright. This really becomes a problem because the handle bars are taller than most umbrella strollers and therefore storage in a car becomes a bit cumbersome.
