Options. It’s what every new or seasoned mom needs when it comes to baby gear. Some of us don’t realize it in the beginning, but after a few months of switching baby gear and watching the unused or limited use pieces get piled in the corner of the basement, we realize that all we really needed from the start was something with more options. Babies grow and OUTgrow gear at an unfathomable rate.
When I was pregnant with my second baby, I was wavering at the idea of getting a double stroller. Would I use it? Was it worth it? Would my toddler sit in a stroller? Would a double stroller be too big/heavy/cumbersome? After speaking with other parents in similar situations, they all felt the same way and ended up with a stroller anyway, after realizing it is much easier to keep both kids in one place. I looked into other double strollers but there was something about the Contours Options LT Tandem stroller that intrigued me. The name says it all: O P T I O N S. Not only can you adjust the seats in the position that works best with your lifestyle, but you can even use your infant car seat with this double stroller (just check Contours to make sure your car seat is compatible!) I loved that I can have my toddler facing out to see the world around her, and my infant facing me, so I can watch her, comfort her, feed her, and tend to her needs. When I used this stroller with my toddler and my niece, I was able to have the girls facing each other so that they can play together. The Contours Options LT Tandem Stroller is one of the lightest double strollers, weighing in at 34 pounds. Now, I’m not going to lie, double strollers ARE bulky and can be on the heavy side. The Contours Options LT, while on the lighter side for double strollers, still is a little heavy for me. I can easily get it in and out of the car, but I can’t bring it up and down the stairs. The stroller comes in Red or Gold, which are both beautiful gender neutral colors.
My favorite feature of the stroller is the roomy storage basket, oh, and the fact that it can be folded with both seats still attached! This really makes my life a lot easier when I have both kids to strap into their car seats, a storage basket full of groceries, and a stroller to fold up. I love that this stroller grows with your children, whether you have twins or two children of different ages. I’ve even had a nanny stop and ask me about this stroller because she thought it would be great to use for the children she watched!
I also love the the ride is super smooth and the stroller is easy to navigate. I didn’t feel that the stroller was overly large, as I expected a tandem stroller would feel, and it was easy to maneuver through aisles at the supermarket.
