    Default Tandem vs Side by Side pram for twins

    Wasn’t sure where to post this but struggling with this decision!

    We are expecting twins and our two older kids no longer use a pram.

    Can’t decide what is more practical in choosing a pram! Prefer the side by side once the kiddies are more interactive with the world but can’t imagine getting around for errands, shops, people’s houses, cafes etc with it!

    So we thought maybe a tandem pram... but will we still get use out of it once the kids are over 6 months??

    Thanks so much for your advice!

    I don’t have twins, but would always choose side by side for a double. Models such as the mountain buggy duet or city mini gt2 double fit through most doorways. Most side by sides fold in one piece. I don’t think this is the case with most tandems.

    I’ve had friends with tandems and after time they wished they opted for side by side.

    I’d go check out a few models at a baby shop and compare for yourself though. I’m sure there will be something that stands out to you for a particular reason.

    Mountain buggy duet. Side by side, but fits through a normal doorway with ease. LOVED it.

    We have the Uppababy vista for our twins and love it. They are only 6 months so not sure how long it will remain practical.

    There are lots of twin groups on Facebook where you will get all sorts of great ideas.

    I have a baby snap duo, side by side, fits through standard doorways, only 9.8kg,lightest double on the market apparently and only around $600, has all the features of other more expensive prams. I love it!

    Oh and the baby snap duo can lay flat for newborns.
