How to choose the right travel stroller for a holiday?

Whether you're flying abroad for a summer vacation or driving around the UK for a holiday, there are a few holiday essentials that every parent needs to make life a little easier. A travel stroller is most likely at the top of your list. UK Baby Centre will guide you thought picking the right stroller for you.

A compact stroller is a useful piece of equipment that can help you navigate busy streets, airports, public transportation, and elevators. It is very convenient in terms of usability, comfort, and functionality. It is also the answer to your storage problems at home, in your car, or even on a plane. The stroller's folded size is a must-check item on the checklist. Many compact strollers are airline-approved for overhead storage, under the seat, or both. For some people a heavy weight stroller could be deal breaker, compact strollers being lightweight, makes it easy to carry around or lift into storage.

Many compact strollers are suitable from birth, so you can rest assured that your child will be safe and comfortable from birth. While they are newborns, the full lie-flat mode provides the most comfort and safety. These strollers can be easily adjusted, and the backrest can be easily moved into an upright position as your child grows to accommodate each stage of development. Some strollers are even car seats compatible, with the use of an adapter.

So here is a checklist to choosing the right travel stroller.

  • Folding size
  • Weight
  • Cabin Approved (for air travel)
  • Lie-Flat (suitable from birth)
  • Car seat compatible (based on your preference)
