Which car will fit three car seats across? I’ve seen this question asked repeatedly among families of multiples or with closely aged young children.

There are several options out there, so I’ve collated some reviews of various triple strollers in one place to help you get a feel for what’s available in Australia. This is a basic rundown based on peoples’ personal experiences that will hopefully provide you with a starting point if you’ve just started looking. I haven’t received any form of payment from pram manufacturers or suppliers to write this article – I just realised that people keep asking the same questions and wanted to try and provide some answers… Read more
