During my pregnancy my DH and I dealt with the issue of what to do for strollers when it comes to Triplets. They are HUGE, heavy and alot to deal with... they also can cause unwanted attention.
So... what did we end up doing?
I have my single stroller from my oldest. I also already have all my baby slings... but it wasn't enough...
We bought a Triple Tandem Stroller. (The Foundation) It's longgggggggggggggg... but fits through doorways. It is incredibly heavy and doesn't fit in our Mini Van... but might be good for walks around the neighbourhood. It was inexpensive compared to others (300 dollars), which helped.
We then bought a Double Stroller and Baby Sling. It fits in our Mini Van... isn't as heavy ....but is wider, so it doesn't fit through doorways. It's a side by side. It's ok, but with baby attached, it left me hot and unable to play with my older DD when we were out at the park.
I would have loved a Triple Pram type... more like an open Bassinet that all the babies could have fit in side by side while they're still small... but I didn't find one in time and now the babies are just too big and it would be too cramped. I liked that it would easilly fit through doorways and not be too heavy. It would also allow babies to lay flat.
I've found some different types, including one that is called the Triple Mountain Buggy. It's Double Stroller wide with the extra seat above. It's tall looking but would work.... the issue is it's expensive.
For the other Triplet Mums... or Twin Mums with other children...... what do you use?
