Baby carriages for twins: virtues and weaknesses
The birth of a child is a special joy for parents. And it increases when the family finds out that two children must appear at once. However, with the birth of children, care is also increasing. One of the typical problems is the purchase of a stroller for twins.The responses of many parents indicate some difficulties in choosing this vehicle for children.
Today the market has a large selection of children's products from various well-known companies that sell baby carriages for twins - transformers, summer and winter models.
The choice of means for the movement of children is reduced to determining its design. The most common are three options: a transforming version, with the seats arranged one after another or side by side.
In the latter case, both babies can equally well see the entire path that parents make during a walk. Also, children can behave differently: one of them can sleep, and the second at this time will play, while he can not interfere with the sister or brother. Carriages for double strolling with seating positions side by side have a drawback, which lies in the width of the product. They are difficult to accommodate in an elevator, and in public transport such equipment is generally unlikely to enter. It will be inconvenient to transport it in the car.
Tandems, or strollers for twins, in which the seats are arranged one after another, this lack is lacking. They have a more thoughtful folding mechanism. However, the baby sitting behind will not be able to see clearly what is going on in front, and this often leads to irritability and anxiety of the child.
Avoid this disadvantage allows the purchase of a tandem, in which the front seat is located below the rear. There are also varieties of wheelchairs in which children can sit facing each other. The advantage of these products is the ease of their passage, even in narrow doorways.
Some baby strollers for twins in their design have swivel cradles, which allows you to turn the children during the stop to face each other. They can play or chat together.
Transforming models of stroller for twins are convenient in the case when, in addition to twins, there is one more child in the family. In this case, you can easily replace one more seat, and a multi-purpose crew for walks can set off. The disadvantage of these products is their heavy weight and poor maneuverability.
Choosing baby strollers for twins, you should pay attention to the maximum permissible mass of transported children, and in no case should this limit be exceeded.
In addition, the products must be provided with various adaptations, which give some additional conveniences. The stroller should have a handle that allows you to adjust the height, the trunk, in which you can put two sets of change clothes, toys or mom's bag. It is desirable that in the carriage there is a visor, a raincoat, an apron and a mosquito net. Wheels of the product should be large and wide: this will add stability to the wheelchair, patency and reliability, which is very important for models of large dimensions. The presence of shock absorbers is also mandatory.
