What is the best travel stroller for 2021?
After the restrictions of 2020, this year is set to be a year for holidays! If you have ever tried to take a pushchair on a plane, you will know that the latest trend of buggies that fit in the overhead compartment is long awaited!
A lightweight buggy must be compact folding and easy to manoeuvre, so we’re here to give you a list of the best compact strollers for your family.
Some pushchairs will be cabin approved, so you can take yours straight onto the plane and store it in the overhead locker. This way, when you get to your destination, you can carry it down the steps and baby can go straight in the pushchair, eliminating the stress of carrying them along with your hand luggage all through the airport.
If you’re looking for a stroller for a newborn baby, you will want to ensure the stroller reclines flat. Consider how much padding your child has in the seat, and therefore how comfortable and supportive the pushchair is. It is also important to check the weight limit on the stroller you choose. Some will go up to 15kg (average weight of a 3 year old), but others will go beyond that.
If you’re planning on taking your pushchair abroad, check what sun protection each pushchair has. Does it have UPF50+ fabrics? Does it come with a UV cover or insect net? Does it have a raincover? After all, you will probably want to use it as a spare for the car boot when you return home!
When the sun shines, the colour of your pushchair is also very important. From our experience, yellow or green pushchairs can often attract unwanted attention from insects!
Finally of course, you need to find a pushchair within budget. Baby Birds have lots of budget friendly travel stroller options.
