Flying with babies is nobody’s favorite: getting familiar with the regulations and gathering up all the tips and tricks that you can will help, but at the end of the day, there is no way to guarantee that your precious little one isn’t going to scream her head off and/or have a diaper blowout. As with all parenting tasks, embracing the Zen concept of accepting what you can’t control is crucial.
You CAN, however, control what gear you take along for the ride, and having a BabyZen YoYo+ Stroller will go a long way towards making your voyage with baby on board more acceptable. As we’ve repeated in many reviews, this fantastic little stroller folds up small enough to fit in the overhead compartment on your flight, so you don’t have to gate-check it, and it recently also became newborn-adaptable. It’s a great everyday stroller, but air travel is where the BabyZen YoYo+ really shines.
But, supposing the YoYo+ doesn’t feel just right to you, or is outside of your budget? Baby Jogger, always quick to latch onto a good idea, created the competing Baby Jogger City Tour Stroller, with an equally compact fold, a nifty travel bag, and a great basket.
