I have not taken public transportation since my younger son was born. However, before his arrival, we used to live in England and took the Tube in London. My rules were: no strollers (I wore him on my front and strapped the diaper bag on my back) and nurse him anytime he made noise. We live in the US now and are not close to public transport, but I am not sure how I'd manage 2 under 2. I'd definitely wear the baby still, but on my back....I cannot imagine traavelling without food or drink for the todddleer though.


You need two adults. That way if the elevator is out, you can each take half of the stroller and carry it up the stairs/escalator.

I have two daughters, 19 months apart. We've done DC twice. It was decidedly easier with the big one in the stroller and the little one in the sling. If the little one got to be too much, I could let the big one walk (she's very good at holding on to the stroller/shopping cart and knows that she has to hold on when we're near traffic/in parking lots) and put the big one in the stroller for a moment.

The second time, the little one was bigger and pushing the double stroller through the metro was HELL.

I don't remember how old your kids are, but I think this is one of those things that gets easier with practice. I'd try a morning outing to a museum, and LEAVE AT LUNCH so that you can get them home in time for nap. Bring a friend, or their dad, or some other grown up to help you. They're just too little to do this on your own right now, and that's ok. When they're nearly 4 and 2.5, as mine are now, it'll be a lot easier.


PS - I have a lot of stuff on having 2-under-2 at my blog - http://prettybabies.blogspot.com


Ours are 18m and 3m. If I had to take them on the MAX train without DH there's no way I'd take the stroller. I'd wear both of them so I had hands free, go at a time of day when the trains were a little less busy. The little one nurses in the carrier just find and the 18 month old is content for an hour or two with just water in her cup if she has a snack before we go. :)
