Best Lightweight & Travel Strollers of 2018!

For the family that’s always on the go, a lightweight travel stroller is a must. Whether battling public transit on a daily basis, loading the car up for a family trip, or navigating a busy airport, there’s a perfect stroller for each circumstance.

Travel by Air

For families living a jet-setting lifestyle or those that plan the occasional air travel, there is no need to look any further than the Babyzen Yoyo+ 6+ Stroller. This stroller is made to be pushed up the aisle of an airplane and folded down to a size that allows it to fit in the overhead compartment. There are a few different purchasing options for the Yoyo+ which make fulfilling specific needs very easy. You can purchase the Yoyo+ Newborn Pack, which is a bassinet that can be used from 0-6 months. This allows baby to lay flat to promote proper spine development. Once baby outgrows the bassinet, there is a 6+ month seat available which holds up to 45lbs (about the weight of a 4yr old). The stroller is also sold as a complete set with both the bassinet and seat included.

Babyzen also makes a Board for your big kid to hitch a ride! It flips up when not in use and folds down with the stroller. The Babyzen Yoyo+ comes with an attached carry strap to allow for a hands-free carry when not in use. No more pushing an empty stroller when your little one decides to walk! The Yoyo+ is also compatible with Cybex, Maxi Cosi, and Nuna Infant Car Seats with this adapter. It doesn’t get much easier than wheeling your car seat onto a plane, having a car seat to keep baby safe and contained during flight, and storing your stroller above your head. The days of waiting for your stroller when exiting the plane and worrying about your favorite stroller becoming damaged are over! The Babyzen Yoyo+ offers a soft one-handed push, one-handed fold, and comes in at a light weight of 13lbs.

Public Transit Commuters

For the busy city family that are on and off busses and trains (but still in need of a stroller to combat city sidewalks) the Cybex Mios is a dream. The Cybex Mios Stroller performs well on city sidewalks and has all-wheel suspension. It features a one-handed fold, which means you can hold your baby and fold your stroller at the same time. The Mios folds up towards your body rather than down to the ground — no bending and lifting required! It weighs 19.2lbs and has a weight limit of 55lbs.

The reversible stroller seat can accommodate a newborn baby with a full and nearly-flat recline. Included is the comfort inlay, which keeps baby cozy and warm, but can be removed on hot summer days. Parents LOVE the seat on the Mios. The mesh back allows for maximum airflow during those summer months. Although the toddler seat is newborn ready, Cybex does offer a separately sold carrycot and comes with included car seat adapters which are compatible with Cybex, Maxi Cosi, and Nuna Infant Car Seats. Whether you plan to be jumping in and out of taxis, buses, or subways, the Mios is a commuter’s best friend.

Lightweight Stroller for Cars

If you’re looking for a stroller that is:

  • Small enough for travelling 
  • Compact enough for your trunk 
  • Light enough to lift often

…the Bugaboo Bee5 is the way to go. The Bugaboo Bee5 Stroller folds down super compact and, considering its amazing push, is pretty lightweight at 19.6lbs. The Bee5 toddler seat is reversible, reclines totally flat for proper newborn positioning, and even adjusts to the growth of your little passenger! There is also a bassinet option sold separately. The Bee5 is compatible with Cybex, Maxi Cosi, and Nuna Infant Car Seats, making for a superior “snap and go” system. This stroller has so many fun customization options, from choice of frame and seat to fun printed canopies and leather grips for the handle bar. The fashionistas will LOVE pushing this stroller around. The Bee5 is super easy to fold down and open back up, and the handlebar can even be placed over your stroller for an easy carry, especially when faced with the challenge of stairs!
