Hi Everyone, I'm considering purchasing a double stroller for infants to use around our family ranch.  We have dirt roads and cattle guards to cross.  I'm afraid I won't be able to get outside much without a double stroller.  I have a single jogging stroller already but I know I can't use that for at least 5 or 6 months.  Any tips?

Visit here, and put in your details.  I would think you'd need a stroller with big, inflated tires. I'm not sure what's out there right now for infant stage, tho.

I really like the mountain buggy urban.

We bought a BumbleRide Indie Twin. It's a pricey stroller. But we found one in like new condition for half price. (After a couple months of searching Craigslist) Admittedly I haven't used it yet because we're still waiting on our twins to arrive. I chose it because we live a mile from a mountain park with wide bumpy dirt paths and this is where I envision using it the most. Also, I wanted a side by side design so both kids could see out. Although not a true jogging stroller, the front wheels can lock into place and all four tires are large and well treaded with a high clearance. Just a note that there was a recall on this stroller a couple years ago for two reasons: 1) Parents could easily leave the front bumpers in the wrong position. Fixed by simply removing the bumpers altogether. 2) There were problems with the front wheel axle breaking. Fixed on the newer models and the company sells a retrofit kit for older models. 

I'd be curious to know if any other Mom's have advice, tips or tricks for getting outdoors with two infants at once.

We have a Valco double and I LOVED it for rough gravel roads and terrain. We live on 40 acres in da boonies and never had a problem with it. We took it camping and went over some darn rough trails and it was awesome.

 

Look for wheels that are big and air filled - that makes a huge difference.
