In a side by side double stroller children can easily interact with one another. This usually leads to more interesting experience for them and less work for the parents. For babies who are the same age this type of stroller has also a huge psychological advantage, the seats are equal. There are no front and back passengers no one is favored so there is no fighting who gets which seat. In my quest to find the best side by side double stroller I tested several most popular models. Below you can see how they compare.
