You’ve likely heard the adage, always leave a sleeping baby lie. Or wait, is that a sleeping dog? Either way, when your babies are sleeping you don’t want to move them.
When your twins are infants, they sleep a lot! When you take them to their frequent doctor visits or running errands, it can be a pain to take them in and out of their car seats. Ideally, you’d keep them in their infant car seats. However, that can get really heavy, especially if you are by yourself.
This is why we loved the Baby Trend Snap-n-Go Double Inline Stroller for our twin girls. We could leave the babies in their car seats and simply move the car seat to the stroller and be on our way. In fact, this was one of the best purchases we made for our twins.
However, even the best of products have some flaws. One of the big issues we had is that eventually our girls got too big and could kick each other. This shortened the time we were able to actually use the stroller. The good news is that the newest version of the Snap-n-Go stroller has stadium seating to prevent this very issue!
Our friends at Twiniversity put together a video showing some of the features and how to use the latest model of this Baby Trend Universal Double Snap-N-Go Stroller Frame:

Disadvantages and Cons of the Baby Trend Double Snap-N-Go Stroller

If your car seat isn’t on the list, don’t worry. This stroller is a “universal” stroller and should accommodate most infant car seats. However, to be sure, I’d recommend you visit a local store like Buy Buy Baby or a smaller boutique shop to test drive your car seats before getting the stroller.

“My wife and I LOVE our snap-n-go. Very easy to use and very handy. It folds down nice and small. So easy to use and bring with us.” – Erik Sjoberg
“I like the Snap n’ Go. It is a bit long and slightly awkward to turn, but it gets us from here to there. It also accommodates the fun toddler seat we had to get!” – Angela Mercer
(Note: Angela’s picture above is of the original stroller model without stadium seating. Plus the Englacha 2-In-1 Junior X Rider toddler attachment is sold separately.)
Overall Impression and Recommendation
We loved our Snap-N-Go double inline stroller. It was easy to use and a lifesaver for moving our infant twins around. It handles very easily even when loaded down with twins and gear. A bonus is that you become quite the spectacle out in public with your twins’ adoring fans moving you to get a closer look. Fortunately, the long and sleek design make it easy to weave through crowds and make your escape.
