Lightweight pushchairs are definitely growing in popularity and they really are so handy. Whether you’re jetting off on holiday or spending a lot of time on public transport, finding a lightweight buggy might be your saviour.
You might love your current pushchair but sometimes having a smaller, lighter option is great for babysitters, grandparents and for quick trips around the shops.
Here is our list of the best lightweight strollers that are available right now.
The Babyzen YOYO+ is ideal for jet-setting mums and dads. When folded this pushchair is tiny and fits perfectly into the overhead aeroplane storage, meaning you’ll no longer need to worry that your pushchair will arrive at your destination safely. It can also be used in parent facing mode from birth. If you wish to use a lightweight and compact pushchair until your little one no longer needs a pushchair then this is worth checking out. Plus you can get the YOYO+ board that can carry a child weighing up to 20 kg! Weight: 6.2KG
The gb Pockit is tiny and even snapped up the world’s smallest folding stroller in the 2014 Guinness World Records, so if you’re looking for compact look no further. It doesn’t have the ability to lie flat, so isn’t suitable for newborns. But as soon as your little one hits 6 months this is going to be the perfect holiday companion. It’s so compact you won’t have the struggle of packing it away when not needed either. Weight: 4.3KG
If you’re looking for a full-size stroller that offers everything you need, but weighs very little then the RECARO Easylife could be for you. The seat has multiple recline positions, the front wheels are swivel but can be locked and it has a decent sized basket for such a small pushchair. The sun canopy hasn’t been forgotten about or downsized and the colour options are gorgeous, obviously we love the pink! Weight: 5.7KG
The Ickle Bubba Aurora is definitely the bargain of the bunch. At only £130 this pushchair is super lightweight, folds down into the tiny package and offers multiple recline positions as well as a lie flat option, so, you can use it from birth. It also has a pleasing sized basket because who can resist a little shop when on your travels. Weight: 5.5KG
We thought the Quinny Yezz was a fantastic travel companion (especially a helping hand on the underground) until we discovered the Quinny Yezz Air. It’s 0.6kg lighter than the previous option, so what’s not to like. It’s clever design with 3D knitted technology (which is a knitted mesh) allows complete breathability and airflow as well as enough elasticity for an ultra-comfy seat for your youngster. Plus, we love the look of it! Weight: 5KG
If you have an active lifestyle and just love adventuring that you’ve got to check out what Mountain Buggy have to offer. The Mountain Buggy Nano is their most lightweight option and it gives you everything needed in a pushchair just downsized. When the Nano is used with the cocoon it has the ability to lie flat and it always has in-built car seat adaptors meaning it can be used as a travel system. Weight: 5.9KG
The Mee-go Feather was a silver and consumer choice winner in the 2016 Best Baby & Toddler Gear Awards from the New to Market for Toddler category and it really is as light as a feather. Although a new product it still managed to impress our parent testers.
It can world face, parent face, recline (making it suitable from birth) and has a huge hood. It packs a punch for the price tag attached! Weight: 5KG
The newest addition to the ever so popular Baby Jogger range is the city tour, which is actually their most lightweight pushchair yet. As expected with a lightweight buggy this fold is compact but the city tour only requires one hand, push a button and pull a strap and you’re done. This is an everyday pushchair so although it’s super handy for travelling it is robust and sturdy enough to be used day in day out. Weight: 6.4KG
