Triple Strollers for Triplets

Strollers for triplets, or twins plus one.

Are you in the market for a triple stroller? Perhaps you have triplets, or twins and another child (aka "a pair and a spare".) A good stroller is an important investment for parents of triplets. With three babies, and only two hands, a triple stroller is a must for getting out and about. If you're shopping for a triple stroller, here are some models to consider. Be prepared -- triple strollers are pricey, and oversized. Where many double strollers offer streamlined and lightweight profiles, a stroller for three children is almost universally bulky and heavy.

Two Plus One

Finally, another option to consider is to forgo a triple stroller and invest instead in a combination of a double stroller plus a single stroller.  One solution recommended by parents of triplets is the Valco Baby Twin Tri-Mode stroller (Buy at with the additional toddler seat accessory.

Secondary Market

Because of the high cost of triple strollers, they are very popular on the secondary market. Many are passed from family to family for several generations of multiples. The models below are no longer being manufactured, but may be available secondhand, so I am keeping the information available. Click to see these discontinued strollers.

Baby Jogger Q-Series Triple Jogger Stroller

Baby Jogger no longer produces a triple stroller. The Q-series was discontinued in 2010.

Baby Jogger strollers appeal to active families. While the Q-Series is designed for use during exercise or in the great outdoors, many of its features make it an effective stroller for everyday use. Its simple set-up and fold-down configuration establishes it as one of the most portable triple strollers. Padded cushioning, individual reclining seats, ventilation and a sun canopy ensure a comfortable ride, even on long journeys, while parents appreciate Baby Jogger's reputation as a company committed to safety and quality.

Ingelsina no longer produces a triple stroller. 

The Domino Trio is a tandem (inline) stroller with three seats that can be positioned backward-facing (for infants) or forward-facing (for older babies). The frame accommodates either bassinette (carriage-style) or carrier-style seats, however you can not recline all three of the seats at the same time. Weighing more than 30 pounds, it is large and bulky; one of the seats must be removed in order to fold the frame. However, Inglesina is known for high-quality products with impeccable safety standards. While this hefty stroller commands a hefty price, the secondhand market for this product is lucrative.

The triple stroller can accommodate 100 pounds of combined child weight, and the life of the stroller can be extended with the addition of toddler seats for older children.
