Yes, the Contours Optima Tandem can accommodate 2 infant car seats at the same time. This stroller only comes with one car seat adapter, but a second one can be purchased through our customer service department or online at a number of different retailers. The Contours Optima Tandem can be folded with both infant car seat adapters still attached. However, if you wish to achieve the smallest fold, we recommend that you remove one or both adapters. Thank you for your question!

I've seen the listing of carseats that work but was still wondering if anyone knew if the Evenflo Aura Select would work as well? Thanks.

Check the evenflo website. The name of our stoller is the Aura elite but the carseat is actually an evenflo embrace. The car seat does not have the same name as the stroller system.

The Contours Optima tandem stroller is not compatible with the Evenflo Aura infant car seat. The compatible infant car seat list found under the Specs tab is updated with all of the compatible infant car seats.

While there is no maximum age limit for the Contours Optima Tandem, each seat can hold a maximum child weight of 40 lbs. The infant car seat attachment, removable infant headrest, and height adjustable canopies are great features to accommodate a growing child! Thank you for your question.

Question

Does the seat stay in place or swing a little?

After we put the seat in, I noticed that the seat swings a bit, is that the way it should be or did we miss anything?

Congratulations on your new Contours Optima double stroller! There is a little bit of movement in the seats, which is due to the reversible seat attachment hubs.

Question

Why is there no rain cover, or a muff for cold weather to shelter the children?

I have read several reviews and have a friend who owns one who is very happy with it...other than no protection against the elements. A simple design could fit each separately or both together. I am too practical and live in a wintry climate for half the year to purchase a wonderful stroller that can only be used some of the time. With a second due soon, it is a little disappointing.

Thank you for your interest in the Contours® Optima™Tandem, at this time our strollers do not come with weather shields. You might be able to find one out in the market.

Both the front and back seat on the Contours Optima tandem stroller recline flat, but the surface is not flat. The seats retain the angle between the between the seat pad and seat back angle and reclines as a unit; it is not a bassinet.
For both seats to recline fully, the seats are best positioned when facing the parent or facing away from the parent. The footrests may need to be adjusted for your child’s comfort.

Thanks for your question!
