    Which car seats in a Duoglider?

    A mom has a duoglider, but needs seats that aren't the Snugride for her premie twins. What would fit, anyone know?

    Graco ones. That is it. I can try the evenflo and chicco tomorrow, if needed.

    I hate to recommend the Evenflo. If you can, would you let me know about the Chicco?

    Sure. I can try onboard and designer 22 also. Thinking the KF will fit in the back (nest) but not in the front, but I can check tomorrow at work.

    The Chicco will nest in the back I had gotten that to work. I have also gotten the evenflo to nest in the back but the only thing that will fit in the front was my gracos.

    I couldnt get a Designer 22. to fit at all.

    Re: Which car seats in a Duoglider?

    Oh, thanks. Good to know. I guess I'll just steer them to a SR 35 and hope for the best. They aren't good eaters so far, so maybe they'll be there longer!

    I will post more when I go to lunch. I tried all the seats I have here and the best bet was baby trend, still not perfect though.

    I will post more at lunch.

    Re: Which car seats in a Duoglider?

    Well, I HATED my duoglider with my SS1 (same as SR 35) It fit okay in the front seat, but trying to get the monsterous seat into the back seat of the stroller left me swearing and kicking more than once. It was so awful that I went out and bought a snugride 22. MUCH easier to fit in. Still not easy, but much more doable than the SS1.

    I can fit an SS1, no problem. Place one foot behind the wheel, then slide seat back in and down.

    Thanks Judi and everyone else who commented. This will be helpful to the mom I'm working with.

    Judi, did you make those videos? Either way, thanks for bothering. You're awesome!

    Is she a member of a local Parents of Multiples club (do a zip code search on the "Find A Club" section of the National Mothers of Twins Clubs web site to find contact info for the nearest club) - maybe someone at her local club would have a double snap-n-go for loan or sale? (people post secondhand double snap n'go's on our club classifieds page all the time)
    And IMO the DuoGlider with two infant seats is a beast - when my two were infants and we'd go to the new/expectant parent support group meetings, the DuoGliders looked like baby RVs compared to my Combi SBS.
