View Full Version : Triple Strollers

I have two year old twins, and the husband and I are going to start trying for another. (I know, it's crazy. I'm not all that keen on the idea- but whatever)
I've been checking out triple strollers- seriously, are baby trend and peg perego the only ones that make triple strollers? The baby trend one looks too cheap and chintzy, but the peg perego is like a thousand dollars! Anyone have any experience with triple strollers? Are the Pegs worth the money?

Oh, craftyashley, you're headed into territory that I'm scared to enter. :) My husband and I keep going back and forth over whether we should have another. And, of course, I have that slight moment of dread at the thought of possibly having multiples again if we try. My twins are fraternal so I just keep thinking "what if I'm just a "super-ovulator" and keep releasing multiple eggs every cycle!" Haha! Anyway, I haven't tried any of these strollers out, but you might like them:
I know one of them is a quad stroller, but it looks so compact, is able to fit most doorways, and you could always use the extra seat for bag storage (or if you happen to have twins again). :)
Good luck to you and your husband!

Just a thought for you- would you really need a triple stroller? By the time you had another baby, your twins would be 3 and wanting to walk most of the time. Also, if you needed to, you could use a double for the twins and a single for the baby. Another option is a sling or carrier for baby or a buggy board attachment for one of the twins. My oldest had just turned 3 when we had our third (also a 16 month old at the time). We don't have a need for a triple. Either Dad is around to help, he can walk, or if we are outside, I'll let him ride his bike. I hope this gives you a couple of other options, especially if you don't want to spend a ton of money if you wouldn't use it a lot. :)

Thank you for all the ideas! I have actually found myself using my stroller more now that the twins are getting older. I need to strap those kids down from running in two different directions! And I don't have a lot of help (like dad) around. But I like the buggy board attachment idea. Thank you!

And an update!
I ended up buying an Inglesina triple stroller off craigslist for $100! Can you believe it!
I haven't had a lot of time to toy with it, but I love it so far! The only draw back, I might need a bigger SUV- I have a kind of crossover, and it really doesn't fit in the back that well. But I can use it for just the twins in the meantime- the seats come out and switch around all sorts of ways. Love it!
