Perfect for Twins: Britax B-Ready Double Stroller

Britax B-Ready

Britax, who is the manufacturer of this dope baby carrier offered to let me try out their B-Ready Stroller. And get this. Instead of just unboxing it, throwing the little dudes in it, and letting you know what I thought, I put this poor piece of equipment through ridiculous tests. I didn’t mean to be extra hard on it but I was. And if you don’t want to read to the end, here’s this: it is awesome. Tell a friend.

Here’s why:

I only had the Britax B-Ready for about three days before we left on vacation. I thought it’d be a great test to see if we could wrangle a double stroller through the airport, gate check it, and wheel our twins around in it without really being familiar with it. I mean – I find it annoying when it takes six months to learn how to use a piece of equipment for my babies. I have about three minutes at night after they go to bed before I fall asleep and no minutes during the day during which to learn all the nuances of a stroller. I’m lucky some days that I actually am wearing pants. You follow?

My stroller has to go up and down this staircase a few times a day. My stroller has to be supertough.

It was a dream. I was able to put the B-Ready together superquick. Me. All by myself. And I seriously suck at putting things together. Everything about using it was intuitive from the get-go. And any stroller I’m going to have is going to need to be built incredibly sturdy to withstand the roads, curbs, stairs and rats that it gets rolled over. (hahaha – kidding about the rats.) (?)

My older son loves to push his little bros.

But the devil of this thing is in the details. Not only did B-Ready pass my airport and vacation test, it passed the Hurricane Irene test. All of the photos in this post were taken while my family was walking around literally in the Eye of Hurricane Irene.

A little hurricane wind. No problem.

Umm...seriously....no problem...

So. I would tell my sister, my friends and anyone else who would listen to consider the Britax B-Ready for their babies Why?

  • The storage under the seats has a lot of room. And you can actually get to it. The super-geniuses at Britax have put zippers on the front and the sides of the storage space, so you can throw whatever it is you throw into that area without wrestling your kid out of the lower seat. I love this!! It seems so simple but it is a game changer.

    See? Can put apples in through the side zipper. Love.

  • The sun-visor on each seat actually is big enough to shield the boys from the sun. My dudes are somewhat vampire-like in their wailing once the sun hits them in the eyes. They flip out. The Britax B-Ready has totally superb huge canopies that effectively keep the sun off my boys’ faces. Love that.
  • Multiple seat configurations. Ok, this is kind of “duh” but I need a double stroller. But I also *want* a single stroller. The B-Ready can be used as either a double or a single, and it is easy to move between them. With twins, there are times when I want to put one in a carrier, and push the other around, in a single stroller. I do not want a giant huge heavy single stroller people. I want a light cute easy breezy single stroller. And when you remove the bottom seat it is just that. (The second seat is sold seperately.)

And last, but oh-so-mightily important:

  • I can push the Britax B-Ready with one hand. Easily. With total control. With both babies in it. I’m impressed with this. Seriously. This frees my other hand up for holding my older son’s hand, holding coffee, or waving at everyone because I’m just in that good of a mood.

One-handed-push so I can love-up my older boy.

There are a multitude of other features that the Britax B-Ready has including:

  • Appropriate for use with children from birth when using infant car seat, bassinet, or second seat (sold separately).
  • For use with children at least 6 months old, up to 55 lbs when using top seat only.
  • CLICK & GO integrated infant car seat adapter works with BRITAX CHAPERONE and B-SAFE infant car seats and bassinet.
  • Travel System compatible with other major infant car seat brands when used with Infant Car Seat Adapter Frame, such as Chicco Key Fit, Chicco Key Fit 30, Graco Snugride 32, Graco Snugride 35, and Peg Perego Primo Viaggio
  • Reversible top seat with 3 recline positions
  • Simple fold with automatic chassis lock
  • Adjustable handle height
  • No re-thread, adjustable, five-point harness and head pad
  • One-step linked brake locks both rear wheels with one step
  • Removable storage bag with insulated drink holders
  • Included accessories: adult cup-holder, rain cover, CLICK & GO BRITAX infant car seat adapters
  • MSRP (USD) $499.99 (Second seat, shown in my photos MSRP (USD) $149.99)

  1. I am really searching for the best stroller for my new baby. Do you think you would like this one for a single baby? I know it comes as a single stroller but there are SO many out there. I can only buy one because they are such an investment, so I need it to last!

  2. Hey Emily –

    I use this as a single stroller sometimes and love it. It’s super light without the second seat. Easy to fold up as well. Good luck with your new baby!

  3. Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your site in internet explorer, might check this? IE nonetheless is the market leader and a huge element of other folks will omit your great writing because of this problem.

  4. Someone necessarily lend a hand to make critically articles I would state. That is the first time I frequented your web page and to this point? I amazed with the research you made to make this actual put up amazing. Wonderful task!

  6. I have twins and have been using this stroller since birth, currently to snap in thier compatible infant britax car seats. Once I move them in to their convertible car seats, I’ll be using the b-ready with the xtra stroller seat. I LOVE this stroller for all the reasons stated, and also love that it’s not bulky like the other side-by-side twin stroller I have. It’s so easy to pop it out and go.

  7. Hi. So the britax b ready can be gate check for both local & international flights? Did you have any cover or case after folding to protect it? Thanks.

  8. can you hang a diaper bag over the second seat’s top? I’m flying in the summer and was wondering, cause the city select def lets you do that.

  9. Just wondering about the the b ready with the 2nd seat.I have a2,5 year old and a 6 month old and looking at the b ready because I currently hate my double stroller. For those who have the b ready, how easy is it to control with me hand? Also can it negotiate curve well? With one hand? I am always walking with my boys and often am holding the hand of my older one so that he gets some exercise and need a stroller that is very easy to maneuver and easily go up and down curbs with one or 2 hands. Any feedback on how the b ready with the second seat does this would be appreciated

  10. Others think the habit is more likely connected too their checking
    the ground for the scent of its enemies, since the
    dog has its nose to the ground during the turning
    around. Go ahead. Well, everyone with dogs wants to be like Amtrak.

  11. If your older son push the stroller that can proves that the stroller is very light weighted and easy to push..so its best choice for travelling.
