While we love our luxe and deluxe hybrid strollers and all-terrain baby strollers, sometimes you just need to travel light. Lightweight and umbrella strollers have plenty of advantages for urban and suburban strolling with baby, and they’re superb at the mall or traveling abroad. read more
A typical lightweight stroller weighs under 20 pounds, and has an easy, teeny-tiny compact fold that takes up next to no space in your car trunk. Maclaren strollers are often the go-to lightweight stroller, since they’re the lightest of all – the feather-light Maclaren Volo weighs only 8.8 pounds, and can haul a child weighing up to 55 pounds!
The weight of a lightweight stroller varies depending on how many features the baby stroller includes. For instance, the wildly popular Baby Jogger City Mini stroller, weighing in at a svelte 17 pounds, is a sporty little classic with a small footprint and lots of features: great steering, a smooth ride, a huge canopy, and an ample recline. And have you seen how Baby Jogger strollers fold? It’s this easy.
Or, for the paradoxical deluxe lightweight stroller, check out the buzz on the Bugaboo Bee stroller, Bugaboo’s smallest and lightest stroller model. This bee-witching little baby stroller has awesome suspension and a reversible seat, and you can adjust the stroller backrest, canopy, and harness with one hand for a perfect fit.
Unlike the Bugaboo Bee, most lightweight strollers lack the support to accommodate a newborn baby, but many of these stroller models work with infant car seat adapters – check out our selection here, so you can start using your stunning new stroller from day one!
