triple or quad strollers

We have a DD who will be 2 in a month and 6 month old triplet boys. We have 2 doubles nowas boys r still in infant carriers but we're switching at the end of the yr. Big boys are almost 20#!! Heard the Foundations LX 4 pulls to one side so that's out for us. Any other recommendations? Jogging ok too as long as side by side.
Thanks!

Re: triple or quad strollers

  • You could do the Valco twin tri mode with Joey seat and the ride on board. Don't know of many quad ones out there.

    I have the Foundations quad stroller for my two sets of twins.  I like the stroller; it's perfect for walks around the neighborhood--great way for me to get out of the house and get in a good workout when I'm home with all four by myself.  The cons are that it is really heavy (62 lbs + four kids = 180 lbs....) and it's awkward to get in and out of my Honda Odyssey by myself.  Not to mention that EVERYONE will stop you and have to ask/tell you the obligatory: "OMG are all of these your kids??!!??  Two sets of twins??!!  Are they natural??!!?? My Aunt's second cousin's neighbor's friend had twins...."  haha     It's an expensive stroller so maybe check Craig's List or with your local MoMs clubs for a good deal.

  • I know it's not a quad - but we found a Mountain Buggy triple (it's a jogger and it folds - they don't make them anymore) on craigslist and it's amazing.  If you don't walk too far, you could get a triple jogger like that and then put on a stroller board for your toddler to ride. Englacha is the brand we bought to attach to our double when we only bring the double but our toddler may need a ride.  It works well!  That band also has a chair version of a board on Amazon.com that looks promising and more secure/comfortable for a 2 year old on a longer walk.

  • I found the Triple Foundations stroller a little heavy...I have triplets who are 22 months old and we love to use our Triple Flyer wagon...I wonder if there is anything like that for four children...As they get older, they like to be able to all see the world around themselves.
