    Our twins will be 14 months when our new baby arrives - we need to find a triple stroller and I've been looking but as you might guess, there aren't that many choices. I don't want a jogger because I want to be able to get through doors. I go lots of places with the twins now by myself and I'd like something that will allow me to do the same with all three.

    Any suggestions? I believe someone mentioned the Valco trimode twin with toddler seat on here one time. Thank you so much in advance!

    Absolutely the Valco! I loved it! I can't remember ever finding a door we couldn't fit through. I pushed that thing around until the twins were 3 so there was close to 100lbs of kid! And it was super easy to push no matter what configuration I had going. Sometimes half of the basket would be full and only one child still sitting in the stroller and it was still a breeze to push and turn. Yes it's expensive but well worth it.

    I was just coming on here to post a question about the stroller thing!! LOL So funny. Well I'll have to look into the Valco. We don't have a whole lot of extra money but I'll have to look into saving up. My twins will be 16-ish months when the new one is born and my DH is in the Army so I really need to be able to manage on my own. I thought when it's little then I could put it in the Moby wrap (although it'd be a lot easier to keep it in it's carrier!) and push the twins in the double stroller. It's the logistics that scare the crap out of me. The rest of it sounds like a lot of work but manageable. ;) Looking forward to more answers!

    First off congrats on the new addition! My twins are 13 months older then my youngest. We decided not to invest in a triple stroller, they were just way too expensive for me. We already had the twin combi sport stroller and LOVE it and decided to get the single combi as well (we found on CL for 20$) and then got the stroller connectors from Babies R us. It's wonderful, because we can seperate them as needed.
    GOod luck!

    Can you get through doorways / aisles like this?

    You do have to kind of go in crooked through skinny doors, especially if it doesn't open fully, but the combi's are so easy to move around that I've never had a problem. Aisles are easy. My biggest complaint is that there isn't a food tray across the front but I know you can buy some seperate. I've seen the strollers with the "toddler seat" but if yours are only going to be 14 months apart I don't recommend them. Mine would NEVER sit like that or stand for that matter... Just my opinion. Let me know if you have any questions, it's hard having little ones so close in age!

    We splurged on the trimode twin with toddler seat and it is awesome! I can even push it one handed while holding the baby with no problems. It is HEAVY but still worth it to us to take it on our weekend outings to the zoo etc. I use the sling a lot for the baby but he gets so hot that I felt like he needed his own spot to lay down and the twins are constantly in and out.

    I'm actually pregnant with twins after three older siblings and I'm looking for a quad stroller...any advice? My older ones are not yet two and not yet three and we need a stroller on outings like the zoo.
