Stroller options become more limited when you have two little ones in your family. The Graco DuoGlider is a tandem double stroller that features a narrow frame so that it can navigate through tight spaces, as well as the capability to accept two infant car seats simultaneously, making it suitable for parents of infant twins. The rear seat also reclines to a completely flat position and converts into an enclosed carriage for smaller babies.

Undo the plastic storage latch on the side of the folded stroller.

Attach Car Seat

Step 2

Unfasten the stroller harness and hang the buckles outside the stroller's seat.

Step 4

Move the buckles to the end of the stroller's seat belt then bring the belts up and slide the under the belt hooks on either side of the car seat so that the buckles are on the inside of the car seat. Tighten the buckles so that they hold the car seat securely.
