When you're shopping for your first stroller, you're naturally thinking about your first baby—not necessarily your second. Then, in seemingly no time, Baby #2 is on the way, but Baby #1 still needs the stroller, too. Now what?

Many families purchase a double stroller with side-by-side seats, which works well for a period of time. But when the older child graduates from stroller travel, you’re either back to where you started with the single stroller, or you’re pushing a double stroller with only one kid in it (resulting in unnecessary bulkiness, uneven weight distribution—and a couple of weird looks).

The solution? A convertible stroller—one that can be both a single and a double.  A convertible stroller allows you to attach a second stroller seat, infant car seat or, in some cases, a bassinet in order to transform a single stroller into a ride for two.

When your older child insists she’s too grown-up for a stroller, you can detach the second seat to convert it back to a single stroller. And when it turns out that she’s not quite grown-up enough for long walks, after all, you can add a glider board so she can ride along.

Another pro: Most convertible strollers offer multiple seat configurations so that your kids can face you, face the world or face each other, helping you attempt to keep two kids happy at the same time.

The cons: Given their size and complexity, convertible strollers can be both heavy and expensive. But because it endures for years as your family expands, a high-quality convertible stroller can be a wise investment for new parents.

Here’s a look at the top high-quality convertible strollers that grow with your family (listed by ascending price):

    Agio Z4 by Peg-Perego and Peg-Perego YPSI

    12 Convertible Strollers That Grow With Your Family

    The Agio Z4 and Peg-Perego YPSI—two models that are nearly-identical twins—became the lightest convertible strollers on the market in 2020. They weigh just 22.5 pounds, making them lighter than many single strollers, yet they're sturdy enough to accommodate a total weight of 100 pounds.

    Both models are made in Italy by Peg-Perego with the same features, functionality and configurations. The Agio brand, sold exclusively at specialty retailers like Strolleria, has a longer warranty, more premium fabrics and more travel system options. See this Agio Z4 vs. Peg-Perego YPSI comparison for more details.

    If you're using a car seat or bassinet for your newborn, it only takes a set of double adapters ($59.99) to change the stroller to double mode. Because both stroller seats are identical, offering a 50-pound weight limit, you can simply move the upper seat to the lower position.

    Agio Z4 and Peg-Perego YPSI Price

    • Single stroller: $599.99
    • Double stroller: $909.97 (includes companion seat and double adapters)

      Agio Z4 and Peg-Perego YPSI Weight and Dimensions

      How to fold Agio Z4 and Peg-Perego YPSI

      The Agio Z4 and Peg-Perego YPSI have an easy two-step fold: First, pull up on the triggers to fold the seat in half. Then pull a bar underneath the seat, and the handlebar swings over the stroller into a standing position.

      When using the stroller as a double, you'll need to remove the lower seat before folding. The double adapters add several inches to the height of the stroller when folded. You can save space by removing the upper seat before folding the stroller, then removing the upper adapters (which can only be detached when the stroller is folded). 

      Agio Z4 and Peg-Perego YPSI Benefits

      • Lightest and most narrow convertible stroller on the market
      • Agio Z4 comes with 5-year warranty, the longest in the industry

      Agio Z4 and Peg-Perego YPSI Drawbacks

      • Requires double adapters (on both upper and lower positions) for all double configurations
      • Stroller has to be folded in order to attach and remove upper adapters
      • Stroller is tall when folded as a double due to height of double adapters
      • Lacks accessories such as cup holder and snack tray

          Cybex Gazelle S

          The Gazelle S debuted in 2020 as the first convertible stroller from Cybex, the German manufacturer known for its innovative and stylish line of baby gear.

          Among the stroller's more than 20 configurations are a few options that set the Gazelle apart. The Gazelle includes a shopping basket that can be used in the stroller's upper position (with your child in the lower seat)—a configuration that nearly doubles the storage capacity of the stroller.

          When your family grows, you may not need to buy a second seat. The seat that comes with the Gazelle can be moved to the lower position, allowing you to use an infant car seat or bassinet on top for your newborn. Adapters that convert the Gazelle from single to double are incorporated into the stroller frame, so you won't need to purchase additional accessories.

          Nuna Demi Grow

          convertible strollers that grow with your family

          The Demi Grow launched in 2018 as the first convertible stroller from Nuna, the stylish Dutch brand known for its strollers and ultra-popular Nuna PIPA line of infant car seats.

          Unlike other convertible strollers in which one seat sits in front of the other, the two seats on the Demi Grow are stacked. With the weight of both kids on the rear axle, the stroller becomes easier to maneuver and can accommodate a higher weight capacity of 50 pounds per seat.

          The stroller seats are identical, which allows the upper seat to be moved to the lower seat when a sibling comes along. Included with purchase are two sets of Nuna car seat adapters, including a ring-shaped adapter that allows the car seat to be attached and removed using only one hand.

          Nuna Demi Grow Price

          • Single price: $799.95

          How to Fold Nuna Demi Grow

          To fold the Nuna Demi Grow, pull back on the triggers on each side until the stroller is locked in a standing position. While the Demi Grow folds with one seat attached, you'll find a comfortable leatherette carry handle if you remove the seat before folding.

          How to Fold UPPAbaby VISTA

          The VISTA is one of the easiest convertible strollers to fold: Pull back on the triggers on each side, and the stroller locks into a compact, standing position. You can grasp the exposed bumper bar and use your leg to help you lift the stroller into the car.

          The VISTA can also fold with the RumbleSeat attached, but the stroller is less bulky if you remove it before folding.

          UPPAbaby VISTA Benefits

          • One of the lightest convertible strollers 
          • Comes with several accessories, including ventilated bassinet that’s approved for overnight use
          • UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat attaches directly to frame without adapters and can be released with the press of a button on the handle
          • All-wheel suspension provides a smooth ride
          • Extra-large storage basket accommodates 30 pounds
          • Oversized sun canopy includes two ventilation panels
          • Folds to a compact, standing position

          UPPAbaby VISTA Drawbacks

          • Secondary RumbleSeat is smaller than primary seat and can accommodate only 35 pounds, sometimes requiring younger child to sit in lower position
          • Requires the purchase of additional adapters for double configurations with infant car seat or bassinet
          • Bassinet does not fit in upper position when using RumbleSeat on the lower position

          Joolz Geo2

          Convertible Strollers That Grow With Your Family

          The Joolz Geo2 is a rare stroller that converts to a double without changing the footprint of the single stroller. When your family grows, you can replace the underseat basket with the Expandable Set, which includes a lower seat frame and a set of interchangeable bassinet and seat fabrics.

          The design of the Geo2 keeps your youngest child behind her older sibling and closer to you, while your older child enjoys the scenery from up above. The upper seat holds 50 pounds, while the lower seat has a 38-pound capacity. Because the weight of both children is centered on the rear axle, the stroller is shorter and easier to maneuver than other tandems.

          Add a car seat or bassinet to either position, and reverse the upper seat to face you or face forward. In a unique feature, the Joolz Geo2 can fold with the lower seat underneath the upper seat.

          Joolz Geo2 Price

          • Single stroller: $1,049 (includes bassinet)
          • Double stroller: $1,348 (includes bassinet and expandable set)

          Joolz Geo2 Weight and Dimensions

          • Dimensions: 37"L x 24"W x 37-42" H

          • Stroller weight: 31 pounds
          • Weight limit: 50 pounds for upper seat; 38 pounds for lower seat
          • Warranty: Lifetime warranty

          Joolz Geo2 Configurations

          • Can be used with up to two stroller seats, two car seats or two bassinets
          • Upper seat can face either direction; lower seat only faces forward
          • Bassinet can be used in upper position in double mode
          • Can be used with the Joolz footboard

          How to Fold Joolz Geo2

          The Joolz Geo2 folds to a flat position, with no change to the length of the stroller, when you pull two triggers on the sides of the frame. The bumper bar remains accessible to serve as a handle for lifting the stroller.

          The lower seat folds underneath the upper seat, giving the Geo2 the same footprint whether folded as a single or double.

          Joolz Geo2 Benefits

          • With both seats positioned over rear wheels, front wheels are more maneuverable, making stroller easier and lighter to push
          • Length as a double stroller is several inches shorter than most competitors
          • Can fold with two seats attached
          • All-wheel suspension with all-terrain wheels
          • Seat frame can attach either seat fabric or bassinet fabric (included)

          Joolz Geo2 Drawbacks

          • Lower seat is not reversible and has lower weight limit

          Silver Cross Wave

          convertible strollers that grow with your family

          The Wave brings modern-day practicality to the timeless elegance of Silver Cross, the British company that has created carriages for generations of royal babies.

          The Silver Cross Wave, which debuted in 2017, is the rare stroller that can become a double stroller out of the box by using the stroller's included toddler seat and overnight-approved bassinet together. Soft, premium fabrics and a high-strength magnesium alloy chassis give the Wave a luxurious look and the sturdiest ride.

          In 2021, Silver Cross reduced the weight of the Wave by another 4.4 pounds and introduced a new color lineup. The new stroller holds 55 pounds in both the upper and lower seats, making the 2021 Wave the highest-capacity double stroller on the market.

          Silver Cross Wave Price

          • Single: $1,299 (includes bassinet)
          • Double: $1,648 (includes bassinet and tandem seat)

          Bugaboo Donkey3

          convertible strollers that grow with your family

          The top-of-the-line Bugaboo Donkey, created by the company that essentially invented the luxury stroller, offers a different type of expansion than seen on other convertible strollers.

          As a single stroller, the Donkey3 features a unique luggage basket in the sidecar position. To make the Donkey3 a double stroller, remove the basket and expand the stroller's width five inches to add a second seat, creating a side-by-side stroller with 17 different configurations.

          In 2020, Bugaboo debuted the Donkey3, which offers a reduced weight of 1.5 pounds, a new canopy with ventilated peek-a-boo window, a redesigned side luggage basket and a new bassinet pocket.

          Bugaboo Donkey3 Price

          • Mono: $1,299 and up (includes bassinet)
          • Duo: $1,659 and up (includes duo extension set, second seat fabric and second canopy)
          • Twin: $1,789 and up (includes all of the above, plus second bassinet fabric)

          Bugaboo Donkey3 Weight and Dimensions

          • Width in mono mode: 23.6"
          • Width in duo mode: 29"
          • Folded dimensions: 20.5" x 29" x 36.6"
          • Product weight: 27.5 pounds (single), 31.5 pounds (double)
          • Weight limit: 50 pounds per seat

          Bugaboo Donkey3 Fold

          The Donkey3 can fold with both seats attached and stand when folded when you pull back on two triggers incorporated into the frame.

          But the stroller will be more easier to lift if you remove the seats, which are self-standing so they won't get dirty. Reducing the frame to its single width also makes for a most compact fold.

          See the one-piece fold and the compact fold options in the videos below.

          Bugaboo Donkey3 Benefits

          • Side-by-side seating can allow for more even weight distribution and easier push compared to an inline stroller, making it ideal for twins and siblings close in age
          • Bugaboo is known for top quality and maneuverability
          • Both stroller seats are equal in size
          • Seats convert from bassinets to stroller seats and can stand on the ground independently
          • Can go into two-wheel mode for navigating sand and snow
          • Can fold with two stroller seats attached (more compactly without seats)

          Bugaboo Donkey3 Drawbacks

          • Price is at the top of the market
          • Side-by-side stroller can be considered too wide by some
          • Although the double stroller folds with both seats attached, achieving the most compact fold involves multiple steps (removing seats and reducing frame width)
