How To Choose The Perfect Travel Stroller This Holiday Season

Travel strollers come in handy when you are traveling with your child. There is a variety of them in the market. They come in many shapes, sizes, and with many features. You need to choose the best stroller out there in order to hold your child safely and keep you and the people around you comfortable. To do this, I recommend that you look into these seven important things that will ensure you select the best travel strollers that every mom and child deserves.

1. Safety

Safety comes first when your child is involved. Studies show that 4 out of 5 infants involved in stroller accidents were not actually hurt because of the great safety features their strollers came with. While in the air, there could be a lot of shaking or turbulence due to bad weather conditions.

When choosing the best travel stroller for flying, I suggest that you check to see if it has the following:

  • Thick, spongy pads on the seat and sides
  • A stable frame

These work well to absorb shocks whenever something hits the stroller from any direction. They also ensure that your child is comfortable.

2. Portability

The best way to travel is to travel light. When you get to your destination, you want to be able to push the stroller easily along pavements and through hallways. The best travel stroller for traveling is one that is sizeable and lightweight. It should not take up too much space and it should be easy to carry into planes.

In terms of portability, make sure that your stroller is:

  • Easy to push
  • Easy to turn, swirl, and wheel
  • Able to occupy a little amount of space

3. Weight Capacity

How much weight can your stroller hold before it loses shape? Well, that depends on its design and stability. Some strollers can only take a maximum of 11 pounds, while others have a weight limit of up to 30 pounds. The weight limit always comes in the description of the stroller, so you all you have to do is read it. The best travel stroller for flying should be lightweight and stable enough to give your baby a smooth, comfortable ride.

4. Storage size

To keep a keen eye on your child, you need to be concentrated on the stroller. For flying, I recommend a medium storage basket on the back. A storage section on the back of the stroller will come in handy to place your valuables and necessities, such as:

  • Your handbag,
  • Diapers and wipes

5. Adjustments

The most common adjustment most strollers possess is the ability to fold. Other stroller adjustments include:

  • The ability to recline
  • Adjustable height and width

Choose adjustments that suit you and the child’s needs. For instance, if you are tall, you might want to adjust the height of the stroller from time to time to hold it and push it comfortably. For flying, you will need strollers that fold and recline while you are inside a plane to occupy less space inside cramped quarters.

6. Accessories

    There are many types of stroller accessories. The most common ones are:

    • Overhead umbrellas
    • Feeding tables
    • Foot sections

    Too many accessories can make a stroller bulkier and, hence, not as efficient for traveling. If you must have accessories, choose only the ones that are necessary. For instance, if the sun is hot wherever you are flying to, an umbrella stroller would be a must-have in order to protect the child from the harsh sunlight.

    7. Cost

    You do not want to spend a lot of money on your stroller, especially when you are traveling. You already have airplane tickets, hotel room bookings, and frequent meals to compete for your cash as expenses. Toysrus.com recommends that the best travel stroller for flying should be cheap compared to other household ones. They should be a little under $100. You can leave your bulkier, more expensive stroller at home.

    A stroller is a very important part of a child’s growth. Children who use great strollers are happy and their parents are also happy, as a result. When infants are comfortable and safe during flights, they are less likely to get irritated and cause disturbances to other passengers. Most of the time, they will be fast asleep until you get to your destination. There are many stroller designs in the market, so don’t just grab one, and strap your child in it. Be sure to check for specific desirable features.
