I love our double stroller as Tillman in particular likes "his space," but with no car there are definate times and places where it is much too cumbersome. Thanks!
Honestly, I haven't found any combo very comfortable with two. I don't have the best back though. It's fine for shorter periods of time, but after awhile it really does strain my back. It's MUCH better than each baby in the hip carry though - that just KILLS me! It's the most comfortable combo I've found, but nothing is all that comfy.
Putting them on & off solo is do-able, but I don't think I could do it out of the house. This is b/c in order to get the baby on my back, I lay him on the bed and pick him up from there, and then when I'm done (and this is the more important part for out of the house) I lean back onto the bed (so he's flat on the bed) & then untie the MT, turn around, and pick him up. I also use my mirror to help me get the positioning right.
