New Double Strollers of 2012

I’ve been rounding up the newest strollers that hit the market so far in 2012 over at Family Style (here and here), but I wanted to give you pregnant ladies a peek at the newest double strollers.

Stroller shopping for one baby is overwhelming enough, but throw in a second baby — whether you’re having twins or a second child — and you have a new set of buying needs.

Lucky for you, double strollers have never been more manageable, maneuverable, and feature-packed. In fact, there are quite a few new models debuting in 2012 that are worthy of your attention:

  • Britax B-Agile Double, $449 1 of 8
    Britax B-Agile Double, $449
    This stroller isn't on shelves quite yet (available for preorder!), but Britax's first side-by-side double is a highly anticipated release. It can only be used with one car seat at a time, so it's an ideal pick for kids close in age.

  • Valco Baby Zee Two, $529.99 2 of 8
    Valco Baby Zee Two, $529.99
    Another highly anticipated stroller for 2012, Valco Baby made a lightweight double without skimping on the features — namely independent, infant-compatible full reclines, adjustable footrests, a roomy basket, and full-coverage canopies. A good choice for twins, although I don't see that it's car-seat compatible.

  • Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double, $579.99 3 of 8
    Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double, $579.99
    The Baby Jogger City Mini is one of the best lightweight strollers on the market — and the GT model makes it even better. The fact that Baby Jogger also has a GT Double makes it a must-see for parents of multiples.

  • Britax B-Ready 2012, $433.37 – $583.36 4 of 8
    Britax B-Ready 2012, $433.37 - $583.36
    Whether you're looking for a part-time double stroller (say if you have an older toddler) or you're planning on growing your family quickly, this convertible stroller is as good as a single as it is a double. And its 2012 upgrades make it even better. (Ideal for Britax car-seat users!)

  • UPPbaby Vista 2012, $700 – $800 5 of 8
    UPPbaby Vista 2012, $700 - $800
    The Vista isn't a double stroller per se, but it's one of the best choices for parents who want to grow their family quickly. Starting as a single stroller that comes with a bassinet ($700), you can purchase an additional seat ($100) and even a ride-along board ($90) for older kids — able to carry three kids at once.

  • Mountain Buggy +One, $600 6 of 8
    Mountain Buggy +One, $600
    This new-ish addition to the Mountain Buggy family is a popular one, especially because it converts from a single to a double without any extra purchases.

  • Mountain Buggy Duet, $599 7 of 8
    Mountain Buggy Duet, $599
    This one hit shelves at the end of 2011, but it's quickly became a real double-stroller favorite. Claiming to be the narrowest side-by-side stroller on the market, the Duet can take two travel systems (perfect for twins) or even two Mountain Buggy carrycots ($159.99 each).

  • Phil & Teds Promenade, $998.99 8 of 8
    Phil & Teds Promenade, $998.99
    The newest Phil & Teds inline stroller is its sleekest yet. And because you can use it with two bassinets (no additional attachments required!), it makes it ideal for twins. Although as toddlers they may fight over who gets which seat.
