Here you are looking for the BEST double jogging stroller. We all think the big changes come with having the first kid, and yeah sure that first one does change a lot of things but man oh man they don’t even come close to throwing you for the same loop that second baby does.
All of the sudden you seem to not have enough hands or attention and occasionally not enough sanity. Then you witness that one quick minute of sibling bonding like a little kiss from #1 to the newest addition and tears well up in your eyes making it all worth it. But hey, despite all the adorable insanity you still need to get your exercise in or at least buckle both kids up and send them off to Dad, so you can get some peace and quiet.
It’s part of staying healthy and keeping your mama vibes positive. This means you are going to need a double jogging stroller, and the task of narrowing the perfect one down can feel a little bit daunting. Honestly, it can feel like car shopping with even more pressure… like yes apparently traction and suspension do matter a whole lot.

Find the BEST Double Jogging Stroller- Advice and Tips
Do you have a type?

Remember this article is about finding the right double jogging stroller, so you’re most common options are going to be these first 3 listed. You might want to look into an umbrella or a sit and stand though if you want something a little more relaxed.

Here’s some must know facts to keep in mind while searching for the one.
If you’re an avid runner (or planning on becoming one yay!) you’re going to want a fixed front wheel to help you stay on course. For the rest of us, there’s plenty of options for a crossover front wheel, which will be able to swivel making it way easier to maneuver when you aren’t running.
Buy Used/Buy with the Intent to Sell-
Let’s just face it, good double jogging strollers tend to be pricey. We’re not saying you have to spend $800, but sometimes it’s worth the investment to spend between $200-$500. Buying a used stroller can totally cut your costs down and with little hacks like wheel replacements and removing the seats to be washed it’ll be pretty much as good as new. If you’re just dying for a shiny new double jogging stroller go for it, and keep in mind you can resell when your kiddos outgrow it.
Be sure to pay attention to the weight and the width of the strollers when purchasing because they’re going to affect you big time when pushing.
Packing it Up-
Where is the double jogging stroller going to be stored in your house and what does your trunk space look like for transporting? These are really important things to consider because if your stroller is impossibly difficult to get in and out you probably won’t ever use it.
Check with your Doctor-
How old does your baby actually need to be to head out on a run with you? It’s a highly disputed topic with recommendations of your baby being anything from 4-9 months. I think it’s just best to check with your pediatrician as they know your baby best and can recommend the right age.
Now that you know what kind of double jogger you’re on the lookout for, check out this list to see the best in the game.
