Best Strollers and Carriers For Traveling

Strollers

 

Best overall Stroller

 

 

We have had the UppaBaby G-Lux for almost five years now. It has been everywhere from China to Colombia. This stroller is good for babies 3 months to 55 lbs. There are many smaller strollers on the market but I would have to argue that the G-Lux will have more advantages and is worth the price.

Why this stroller?

  • Lightweight aluminum frame which makes it easy to lift or carry. (15 lbs)
  • The wheels have a suspension which makes it easy to push on cobblestone
  • An easy to use break
  • folds easily and has strap to carry.
  • Tall handles that make it more comfortable for taller adults to push
  • The fabric can be removed to be cleaned
  • Good amount of storage under the seat
  • Seat reclines fully
  • Extendable sunshade that is 50 SPF plus

The negatives:

  • A bit pricey (but you can use for your everyday stroller)
  • cup holder can pop off and get lost if you check the stroller in at the airport

 

Price- $279.99-299.99  Uppababy

 

Best Compact Stroller

 

I first heard of Good Baby (GB) when we were living in Shanghai. Since then, I have seen the GB Pockit Lightweight Stroller pop up everywhere and I can see why! This stroller is good for babies 6 months to 55 lbs.

Why this stroller?

  • Lightest stroller on the market weighing in at only 9.5 lbs (4kg)
  • Very easy to fold and unfold
  • fits in a carry on suitcase and the overhead bin of the airplane
  • Great for cities that have paved sidewalks

The negatives:

  • Very little storage space underneath
  • Small canopy
  • Does not recline
  • Shock absorption is so-so
  • not good for older cities with cobblestone

 

Price- $179.99 USD  Amazon

 

 

Baby Carriers

 

Best overall Carrier

I consider the Ergobaby Omni carrier one of the best on the current market. It has everything and more than all the other carriers available. Most carriers weight limit goes to 33 lbs, this was the biggest reason I decided to make the Ergobaby Omni the number one. There might be many cases when traveling that a stroller just doesn’t make sense and a carrier does.

Why this Carrier?

  • Wide range of weight capacity (7 lbs- 45 lbs)
  • Forward facing
  • Machine washable
  • Lumbar support for extra comfort
  • Crossable shoulder straps
  • A detachable storage pouch
  • Hood for when baby sleeps
  • Different colors

Price- $180, ergobaby.com

If you are traveling somewhere hot and are afraid that your normal carrier might be uncomfortable because of the heat, The LÍLLÉbaby’s Complete Airflow baby carrier is a great choice.

Why this Carrier?

  • Wide range of weight capacity (7 lbs- 45 lbs)
  • Mesh fabric that allows ventilation so the baby stays cooler
  • Six carrying positions
  • Extra sturdy waistband for Lumbar support
  • Sleeping hood
  • Machine washable

Price- $125 to $135 USD  lillebaby
