Don't shy away from side-by-side double strollers out of concern that they won't go through a door; none is wider than a wheelchair, so all fit standard entrances. They fold flatter than front-to-back models, making them easy to store and travel with. Kids ride next to each other, which has its pros and cons; a definite plus is that you can easily reach them both.
Inglesina's Twin Swift is a workhorse; the seats, baskets, and wheels withstand heavy use. Two bags can hang on the back ($250; babiesrus.com).
Combi's Twin Savvy Sport is affordable, convenient, and lightweight with a tight fold. The front bars bend, making it easy to get kids in and out ($200; combi-intl.com).
Baby Jogger's City Mini Double turns on a dime and folds in a jiffy. "Minis" are lighter and shorter than most joggers ($350; babyjogger.com).
Maclaren's Twin Techno, a longtime favorite, can now be customized; a pillow with matching strap covers is $25 extra ($400; Babies "R" Us).
