Similar to this question, I'm looking for recommendations for strollers for twins.

Ideally, I would like to find a stroller which accepts 2 infant car seats at the same time.

(We currently use the Gracco SnugRide car seats.)

An added bonus would be if the stroller also worked without the car seats (e.g. not just a frame but an actual stroller) but this isn't a "hard" requirement.

If you have experience with more than one stroller, please add it as a separate answer. I'd like to see the "best" models bubble up to the top as the community votes for their favorite twin stroller(s).

I suspect there are few enough of us with twins that it'll take quite a while before the best ones bubble up, unfortunately...

You are probably right, but hopefully over time others will be able to use these recommendations.

Currently, we're using the Jeep Twin Umbrella Stroller. Your children are likely too young for it but when they're older it's perfect due to its portability, inexpensiveness, and ease of egress.

For jogging, we liked the InSTEP Double Jogging Stroller. We had an earlier version and appreciated its maneuverability and inexpensiveness.

There was another stroller we had when we only had the two girls but I can't remember it right now. I can't believe how many strollers we've gone through in the six short years.

We've had three pushchairs for our twins (hence three answers).

Our first was a Jané power twin: we had this from birth, and it was mostly good. Reasonably compact, has car seats. Kids had to both face forward, and back one didn't have much of a view.

(See other answers for other pushchairs.)

To be honest, we've been very pleased with all of them. I'd only call the Mountain Buggy one a "stroller" but that's probably just a terminology clash - to me, "stroller" and "car seat" don't go together :) For babies who need to be able to sleep, I'd probably go for the PowerTwin.

Our final pushchair has been the Mountain Buggy Double Terrain: It looks like they're not making the double "terrain" any more, only "urban" and "urban elite". Much lighter weight than the other two, but made for toddlers rather than babies really: they recline, but not very far. Being double width hasn't been as difficult as I thought, and this one is really simple.

Really easy to push, no bells and whistles.

For my twins, I now own two different strollers, so I'll give you the pros/cons for each of them.

My first stroller, is a front/back stroller, the Kolcraft tandem link text

It's seats snap out for you to attach their infant seat attachments (like a snap n go stroller), so I used this one when my boys were 0-4mths, and just dropped in their peg perego carseats and off we went. Once they had neck support, we took out the infant attachments and put in the full size seats.

Pros: The infant seats drop in no problem. The stroller is easy to push, turns nice, has cupholders for parents and a large basket at the bottle for storage. When the full size seats are in the stroller, the seats can both face forwards, both face backwards, face back to back or face each other (which my boys enjoy now). The straps fit my boys nicely so they won't fall out. Both seats reline fully and have a footrest that goes up or down.

Cons: The stroller is HEAVY and takes up most of my trunk space in my 2009 Dodge Journey. To fold the stroller, you must remove one of the seats which gets annoying quickly. The infant seats do not lock in, there is a strap that goes over them that holds them down which I never liked, and the infant seat attachments are a bit shaky and unsteady which made me nervous, but they held up no problem. When the full size seats are in, the footrests block some of that nice large basket you once enjoyed when you were only using the infant seats. There is no trays/cupholders for my twins for their snacks/drinks.

Overall: It is a nice stroller which I loved for my infant seats, but find it annoying to constantly be taking off a seat to fold it. It pushes and steers great and I LOVE the parent cupholders, but this stroller is now only being used for walks at my house and if I'm going somewhere that I know my doublewide stroller won't fit. I paid $199 for this stroller plus an extra $15.00 USD for the second infant seat attachment (it only includes one infant seat attachment).

My second stroller is the Combi Twin Sport

This stroller is a nice, light weight side by side stroller that fits through all doorways.

Pros: Folds flat then in half again nice and small! Its super light and even has a carrying strap to lift it. It rolls like a dream and turns on dime. It has padded seats that can easily be removed to wash in your washing machine. It has 3 cupholders for the kids. Both seats recline. The sunshields have a window so you can peek in on your babies. There is also small pouches on each of the sunshields to store small items such as keys. It comes completely assembled, you just have to pull it out of the box, snap on the kids cupholders and off you go! That was a pleasant surprise!

Cons: No parent cupholders :( The bottom basket is so tiny you can barely fit anything into it, and when the seats are reclined, you can't even use the bottom baskets. The shoulder straps are very loose (even when tightened all the way), but the waist strap is tight enough to hold my boys in securely.

This is my newer stroller and it is my on the go stroller that fits perfectly in my trunk and is easy for me to fold/unfold with one hand! I had to buy some clip on cupholders and a mommy hook for my diaperbag, but other than that, I love it! It's great for a doublewide and reasonably priced at $229 USD from Babies R US.

My twins and I love the Baby Trend Double Snap n Go. It's so easy to use and light. And the price is good too!

Our previous stroller was the Peg Perego Triplette. We had an earlier model and it was particularly useful when our third child was a toddler. (The Duette might serve you in a bit.)

Our second one was the Inglesina Domino: long, but allowed kids to face each other. Again, they could lie down. Feels like a bit of a tank in terms of sturdiness, but quite easy to push.

Takes up quite a lot of space in the car, from what I remember.
