Best Lightweight StrollersBest lightweight strollers are easy to maneuver, easy to lift and are easy on the pocketbook. These factors are especially crucial for adoptive parents who are likely on a limited budget.
A lightweight stroller - also known as an umbrella stroller - is a must when you're traveling to pick up your child. Even if you choose to carry your child through the airport, you can set your luggage on the stroller and save strain on your back.
But Keep in MindEven the best lightweight strollers won't have all the wonderful accessories you would expect from a regular stroller, including good-sized cup holders, bins and extra pockets for storage. But you'll find that investing a few extra dollars in one of these strollers will be well worth the investment. They are handy to keep in the car for shopping trips as well as traveling to pick up your child.
Here are some of the best lightweight strollers currently on the market:
Britax Blink Lightweight StrollerThis excellent lightweight stroller works especially well for tall people and for heavier babies. It can carry a child of up to 55 pounds - at five my daughter is still not 55 pounds - and is easy to maneuver in stores and in and out of the back of your car.
The only complaint I've seen about this particular brand of stroller is the seat back is not as strong as it could be. But Britax will send a replacement part upon request. Overall, a pretty good deal for the price.
The First Years Ignite StrollerThis is another of one of the best lightweight strollers to have if you are tall. It's comfortable to push around without having to stoop forward in an unnatural way without kicking the wheels. The stroller has a durable frame and can hold a child who is up to 50 pounds in weight.
The seat has a multi position recline and seat both toddlers and small children comfortably with the harness in the middle position.
The First Years Jet StrollerAgain, this stroller has a durable frame rated for use to 50 pounds and has taller handles and a multi position recline. Plus it only weighs eleven pounds has an easy, one-hand folding mechanism. This is a very low-cost stroller, so if you're on a tight budget this might be the best option for you.
However, the wheels might be a bit wobbly for long distance traveling. If you plan on using this stroller for long distances, you might consider a different model.
Jeep Cherokee Sport Stroller, ImpulseThis lightweight stroller has a convenient free-stand that allows you to fold it with one hand. It also has a multi-position reclining seat. It rolls smoothly and is easy to turn and navigate. It's also very light and can be lifted and folded with one hand.
This is also a very handy stroller, with a basket underneath and trays for both the parent and child.
Kolcraft Contours Lite StrollerThis stroller is lightweight, has a snack tray and has a seat that reclines a good way. It also maneuvers well. This stroller might be too short for tall moms and dads to push. Also this stroller has no parent tray.
