One of the first things parents need to do when they find out they’re expecting a baby, whether it’s their first, second, or perhaps even twins on the way, is to start researching the items they’ll need. Some are required— like a safe car seat and a portable stroller— but choosing the one that works best for you can be a challenge with so many choices out there. Baby products don’t come cheap, so if it doesn’t work, it’s not realistic to check a couple out and pick up another one. This is where Britax B-Lively Double Stroller comes in handy.
You want to be assured you’ve got all the things you’re going to use it for by finding the best stroller for your needs. Not only for those quick trips to the grocery store, but also the daily walks to get you out of the house, the zoo trips, and every errand you need to run along with you. The stroller is like a second vehicle for some parents, a way to keep your children happy when you get out of the door. If you have two babies, whether it’s twins, kids who are close to puberty, or a baby and a toddler, having a double stroller for all the needs will make it easier.
Fortunately, we got a chance to test the Britax B-Lively Double Stroller to bring our honest opinion. We’ve come to appreciate the benefits this double stroller has to offer by using an 18-month-old and a baby at the max-weight each day for almost a month in this stroller.

WHAT DO WE LIKE ABOUT THE STROLLER
This stroller was thought long and hard for parents who have two or more children; it’s self-evident. Over the years, we’ve checked so many double strollers, and this one is next level in terms of ease of use when wheeling around two kids and moving them to the car trunk from the home garage. The movable handlebar makes it comfortable for parents of different sizes to use and makes it easy to push when a child is sitting in the seat at maximum weight. Because the wheels glide so nicely, being able to turn the stroller effortlessly with one hand is a significant plus. The canopy is comfortable and full; the buckles of the 5-point harness feel secure and straightforward to use.
With this being a side-by-side double stroller versus the one in front of another type, you need to be aware when strolling with your babies to take up the entire sidewalk and have right door spatial awareness. It’s evident that most entrances are just perfect, but you may find one that’s just a little too low to get through. Another factor is the parents ‘ lack of cup holders with this design opting for the more full canvas pockets in the pack over the hard plastic ones you usually see (which is a bonus but be mindful that your coffee doesn’t have anywhere). Interestingly, this design does not come with a child bar across the front for them to place their sippy cups and snacks, but for this reason, there is an add-on option that you can purchase.
The fun is easy, comfortable, and double. The Britax B-Lively Double Stroller is the perfect stroller if you’ve been blessed with two or not quite ready to walk with an older sibling. For your boys, it has a quick push and proper ventilation. This is a perfect double stroller to consider while looking for two strollers.

FAQs About Britax B-Lively Double Stroller
Q. How well is this stroller rolling on uneven surfaces? (The streets of gravel, weeds, etc.)
A. That really depends on how much weight you have in it, but it moves decently well. We suggest to pull it back/up a little onto just the two rear wheels sometimes instead of giving the smaller front wheels the brunt of the weight on uneven surfaces. This will help you a lot.
Q. Does this stroller fit through a standard sized door?
A. Yes, absolutely. It comfortably fits into every standard-sized door.
Q. Does this stroller comes with a cup holder?
A. No, they don’t come with a cup holder, unfortunately. A cup holder or a snack tray will have to be purchased as separate accessories.
Q. Can the seating be changed to a flat position for newborn kids?
