So having a carry strap and being easy to fold up makes any stroller far easier to use, and more useful, when travelling. We also find strollers that are compact enough to be a cabin size stroller which you can take on board planes as carry on luggage generally can be carried over your shoulder which make them even easier to transport since they leave your hands free.
Uppababy make great prams and I’m sure the Minu is no exception. I love the look of this pram, though it’s not here in Australia yet, so I haven’t actually been able to see it myself. But from the videos it looks pretty cool. I love the fold, it’s quick, simple and super compact. The basket size look impressive for such a small stroller, and also it’s accessible from the front and back. The main seat isn’t suitable for newborns, but there’s an accessory you can buy separately to remedy this, which is in a parent-facing position for newborns.
Adapters are not perfect. While it's easy to say that an adapter exists to attach an infant car seat to a stroller, not all adapters are equal. Many are little more than flimsy metal bars that can clip into the bottom of a stroller. Typically the adapters that feature two upward-facing arms are the most secure, as they tend to slot into either side of the stroller in specialized connection points. Your mileage will vary, though, so get and check everything you need well before your baby arrives.
The rugged Kolcraft Cloud Plus Lightweight Stroller weighs 11.8 pounds and is suitable for kids up to 50 pounds. It boasts easy one-handed folding; and once collapsed, measures 18" x 12" x 34” and stands on its own. This is the ideal purchase for parents with plenty of gear. Tuck your diaper bag into the extra large, easy-access storage basket and your keys into the tray at the top of the push handle. The latter also incorporates two cup holders for Mom and Dad, while a removable child’s tray features a dual cup and juice box holder. Other perks include all-terrain wheels, an extended canopy with a peek-a-boo window and a reclining seat with a five-point safety harness.
“I loved pushing the stroller,” raved one of our testers. “It was super smooth and barely needed any effort. My son seemed to be pretty comfortable in it as well. He even took a nap in it.” One reviewer, who used this stroller in New York City, loved that it handled different terrains — from sidewalks to subway platforms — with ease. In terms of negatives, our testers thought that the stroller’s carrying strap was uncomfortable.
The Contours Options Elite is made by the Chicago-based Kolcraft company, which unfortunately doesn’t make a riding board for this stroller and doesn’t recommend using any made by other brands. So while this model is awesome for younger kids close in age who both need to be buckled, it isn’t as great for families with older kids who want to hop in and out frequently, and it won’t work for three kids. I also found the buckles to be a little difficult to put together, something that isn’t so much of an issue with a single stroller but can be annoying when you’re rushing to buckle one child first and keep the other from running off before you can get them secured as well.
This premium side-by-side stroller has many premium features you can’t find in cheaper strollers. True all-wheel suspension (not just front wheels), oversized UPF 45+ canopies with extensions, soft rPET polyester fabric made from 53 post consumer water bottles per stroller, and certified free of harmful chemicals. Adjustable foot rests keep little feet supported for no more dangling legs.

2) If you’re frequent travelers and your older one will be at least 3 (bigger is better), you can buy a Ride Safer Delight Vest for him or her. You can’t use it on board, but you’d use the convertible on-board for the big one and then once you get to the rental car adjust the straps down and put the baby in the convertible while the older one uses the vest for car rides.


If you’re bringing a small car seat like an infant car seat or my beloved Combi Coccoro car seat as your airplane car seat and your stroller has a big basket with good access, you can try tucking the car seat underneath! We’ve done this many times with our Baby Jogger Versa (now the Baby Jogger City Premier) and it would be a great strategy if you have the Uppababy Vista or Uppababy Cruz.
Basket – There’s no denying that a storage basket is a handy feature to have, but there are both pros and cons to having a larger one – namely that the size of the pram can increase quite substantially. You can find prams with storage on the rear of the seats, and while this can be limited, it can be a good alternative to the harder to reach basket under the pram.

Also, Britax is in the process of redesigning the majority of their infant car seat adapters for the B-Agile including Chicco, Peg Perego, and Graco brand seats. They have indicated a launch date for these adapters for some time in 2018. As a result, the B-Agile is only compatible with the Britax, Cybex, Nuna, and Maxi-Cosi brands and given the lack of a specific release date, we do not recommend that parents purchase the B-Agile with the intent of using it as a travel system with any other brand.


If your infant will have more passport stamps than a flight crew or you live in a big city where you mostly take public transit check out the Doona car seat stroller combo, the infant car seat that magically becomes a stroller! I haven’t used one in a car but I did get a chance to play with it and I was impressed. Others who have used it say that it lives up to the hype as the best car seat for airplane travel with an infant. Stroll up to the taxi door, retract the handle and wheels, then install as you would any other infant seat. It makes a perfect portable car seat for taxi rides with an infant.
Relatively easy to push, maneuver, and use: Side-by-side doubles are generally much easier to push and turn than tandem styles, which are longer and can be tough to ease over uneven sidewalk cracks because of how the children’s weight is distributed. The best tandem strollers don’t feel like an unwieldy train to push or turn. The wheel size, material, and style all make a difference in how much effort you need to put in simply to move each stroller forward. The best strollers have storage that is easy to access and can hold a useful amount of gear.
The BOB Revolution Flex has been a favorite for years due to its exceptional maneuverability on every surface from supermarket floors to rough gravel and snowy sidewalks. It offers a great combination of performance for a reasonable price. If you love the outdoors, plan to hike and jog, or simply want a rugged product with ample storage, giant canopy, and adjustable handlebar, tracking, and suspension, then the Flex is one to consider. This jogger earned an Editors' Choice award in our Full-Size Stroller Review and our Jogging Review, proving it has what it takes to do double duty. While arguably more at home in the great wide open, the Flex works well in tight spaces while shopping and when errands are the adventures in demand.
These allow the stroller to far more easily get over obstacles like curbs, roots, and rough terrain. That does mean you need to worry about things like popping a tire or losing air pressure, but you get a very smooth ride on most surfaces—perfect if you live somewhere with rough winters. It may also work as a jogger in a pinch, though it's not advertised as such and we haven't begun our jogging tests just yet.
There have been enough viral videos over the last few years showing just how rough turbulence can be, and we’ve had some terrible trans-oceanic flights with our own kids when we’ve been glad to have them properly strapped in. If the coffee pots need to be tied down, your kids do too! A parent’s arms aren’t strong enough to hold a 2yo in heavy turbulence, making him a projectile – a risk to the child and the other passengers.
The City Mini Double comes in four colors: black, green, red, and blue. Its frame has a lifetime warranty, while the other parts have a one-year warranty. We tested the latest version, the 2016 model, which has a longer handlebar, changes to the spacing between the wheels, a Velcro closure for the seat vent, and an improved fold and auto lock compared with the company’s previous model. The City Mini Double is the only stroller among our picks whose fabric you can easily remove and machine wash. 

Some parents had issues with the stroller seat reclining enough to be comfortable for their child. A few noted that the cup holders on the parent tray weren’t big enough to fit larger water bottles. Assembly proved to be difficult for some at first. Some parents didn’t like that the child tray had to be on and the stroller fully reclined in order to attach the car seat.
A word about checking car seats on a plane: it’s not recommended for several reasons. Have you ever had a suitcase damaged by baggage handlers? I have! But at least it wasn’t a life-saving device. I’ve seen videos of car seats, even those that were gate checked, being tossed around during the loading and unloading process. There may be no visible signs of damage when you get your car seat back, but there could still be undetectable stresses to the material that would diminish the seat’s ability to protect your child in a serious accident.
The Chicco Keyfit caddy stroller frame has been designed exclusively for the Chicco Keyfit 22 and 30 Infant car seats, and conveniently pops up from flat easily with a one hand action allowing you to hold your baby in their car seat in the other hand. At just 11.2 pounds this frame is one of the lightest on the market and fits easily into tight spaces. The large basket provides an ideal place for all of baby’s diapers, toys, and supplies and with the adjustable handle, parents of different heights will be comfortable while pushing baby about town.
Some of our picks have specific safety recommendations. The Uppababy Vista manual cautions that parents should always load the child riding in the toddler seat that comes with the stroller first and then load the second child into the add-on front RumbleSeat. When you’re using the Contours Options Elite with just one kid, the manual advises to put the child in the front seat only and to keep the back seat installed (you could also safely use the shopping bag attachment instead of the back seat).
It does not recline, so unfortunately is not suitable for families who need this feature. It is suitable to up to 55 pounds though, so it should easily accommodate your child until they no longer need a stroller making it one of the best strollers for toddlers. It meets the highest safety standards worldwide and would have to be the best option for anyone who wants the lightest stroller possible.
Besides the top-rated SnugRide Click Connect 35 infant seat, this stroller has a one-second, one handed fold that makes it super quick to transfer into the car after a fun outing. The seat of the stroller has multiple recline angles for baby’s comfort. Extra deep cupholders in the parent tray hold many sizes of travel cups and bottles. The seat covers are machine washable in cold water (hang to dry).
Among tandem doubles, you have standard models with two seats, as well as convertible strollers that can accommodate one, two, and sometimes three seats in different positions. Sit-and-stand models, which allow an older child to either sit on a bench seat or stand on a riding board while the younger one is in a seat, are another alternative. And twin car-seat frames, which are often inexpensive, are an early-days option for families with newborn twins who will then need to upgrade to a different double stroller once the kids outgrow the infant car seats or want to sit up in a regular seat (around 6 months old).
This depends on what you plan to do while strolling. If you need a lightweight and compact option for travel, you are probably better off with an umbrella style. While they typically have fewer features and can be somewhat harder to push, the lighter weight and smaller folded size make them far easier to use while traveling. If you require something small that you can carry hands-free that doesn't weigh much, the Quinny Yezz is a perfect travel choice for most families and is super fun to push. If your trip is going to last most of the day, and baby will need to nap or you will need more supplies, then you may need a lightweight option with more space or a deeper recline. The Recaro Easylife and the BabyZen Yoyo+ are a potentially better option. However, keep in mind, if you want one option for both, either for convenience or budget reasons, then the Britax B-Agile 3 can work as both a full-size and lightweight option, even if it is larger when folded.
Why do we love this Graco stroller? For starters, it comes with three wheels which make maneuverability much easier. It even has multiple recline adjusts to make older kids a lot comfortable during strolls plus the large storage basket with extendable rear pouch makes journeys, long or short, for parents. The stroller also comes with parent and child trays each with cup holders. Additionally, the 3- or 5-point harness (can convert to 3-point harness for older kids for added movement) is a great safety feature. Of course, the car seat also comes with the standard energy absorbing foam. Don’t worry because it is very safe even for newborns to use.
Graco’s Roomfor2 Click Connect might seem like a basic double stroller, but there are plenty of common-sense features built in that will suit parents on a budget. It’s lightweight, folds easily with one hand, and is compact enough to fit in the trunk of most small cars. It’s also compatible with Graco’s Classic Connect and Click Connect infant car seats, giving it added versatility. For many owners, it provides a simple, effective way to get an infant and toddler around town.

The Joovy Twin Roo+ is a double frame product that is lightweight, easy to fold, fits almost anywhere, and works with almost any infant car seat combination. With ample under seat storage, and the ability to install the seats facing either side, the focus is on convenience and ease of use with this economical infant car seat carrier. The Joovy Twin Roo+ also has a cheaper price tag that can help you save money in babies' first nine months while you determine what kind of double product will be best in the long run. As a result, you won't be limited to choosing from the few double options that work with two car seats attached. We think this consideration alone makes the Twin Roo+ a no-brainer for parents of twins.
But just like buying a car, most strollers get the job done; finding the "best" one means finding the best one for you. While we think anyone will love our top picks, a person who lives in a third-floor apartment downtown has different needs from a person who lives in the 'burbs. Nearly every stroller on this list offers something for someone, so even our non-winners are worth investigating.
Ease of use. Read reviews to see which car seats are easiest to use. This, in our opinion, is the most important factor for safety. A car seat that is difficult to install or use increases the chance of a malfunction. Look for a travel system that includes that seat. The stroller should ideally be easy to unfold/fold, easy to push, and easy to attach/unattach a car seat.
Convertible: These seats can be used from birth as a rear-facing seat, then converts to a forward facing seat when they’ve outgrown rear-facing. Some even convert to boosters and last until your child is too large for any safety seat. This is usually a costlier investment, but can save money down the road. **Note: They cannot be used with strollers.**
If you’re checking your stroller on a plane trip, it will take a lot of abuse from baggage handling, so do remember to remove those cup holders and other accessories that can easily fall or break off (I have lost two cup holders this way – gah!). Also, remember to tag your stroller (and your car seat, for that matter) at the desk beforehand so you don’t hold up the line while boarding.
For parents of twins the Joovy Twin Roo allows you to place two car seats in tandem side by side so that your little ones can look at each other or face in different directions as they ride. The enormous storage basket provides all the space you could need for double the baby supplies while the four cup holders will stock enough refreshments for the longest of journeys.
Jogger – A jogger is ideal for active parents that want to jog/run with their baby. They usually have larger, lockable all-terrain wheels for pushing your baby at speed. They feature better suspension making them easier to push and usually have larger wheels. You can find joggers in both singles and doubles. These are also a good choice if you live somewhere where you need to walk on all terrains. Note: you shouldn’t jog with your baby until they reach 6 months old.

Unfortunately an airplane booster seat provides inadequate support for aviation travel and is therefore not a suitable option for flying. The FAA does not allow booster seats to be used during take off, landing or taxiing. Some airlines do allow you to use a booster seat for airplane travel once in the air, but this differs with airlines and you will need to check with your own airline in regards to this. Although this can be appropriate for longer flights, for most parents it is a less than ideal option.
The moderately priced Contours Options Elite tandem stroller delivers on versatility, much like our upgrade pick, and can give twins or two close-in-age kids a great ride from birth until they age out of stroller rides—without your having to buy tons of extra accessories. It’s our family-with-twins testers’ favorite, even without taking price into account, and it costs less than half as much as the Uppababy Vista and quite a bit less than the only other stroller we tested that can take two infant car seats, the Baby Jogger City Select.

Uppababy make great prams and I’m sure the Minu is no exception. I love the look of this pram, though it’s not here in Australia yet, so I haven’t actually been able to see it myself. But from the videos it looks pretty cool. I love the fold, it’s quick, simple and super compact. The basket size look impressive for such a small stroller, and also it’s accessible from the front and back. The main seat isn’t suitable for newborns, but there’s an accessory you can buy separately to remedy this, which is in a parent-facing position for newborns.


BabyGearLab, which calls the Urban Glide 2 “a stellar side-by-side double stroller that can serve double duty as a jogger once your baby is older,” named it the side-by-side Editors’ Choice. Parents have given it predominantly positive reviews on Amazon, often comparing it to the BOB. “This is going to be life-changing for me! Much easier to get out of the house with 2 kids now and to get walks and runs in,” declares one owner. “It is SUPER easy to fold up and, while large, I think it’s pretty functional as an everyday stroller. Highly recommend.” Others say the seats are too shallow or that it doesn’t fit in their trunk, and one notes that it didn’t feel stable to use with an infant in an attached car seat and no second kid in the other seat.

What we found is that picking a stroller is a lot like buying a new car—it's a confusing mess. There are hundreds of models, prices range from $20 to $1,200, and it's tough to tell which features really matter. As a new parent myself, I've lived through this personally; I know how much it stinks to be stuck with a bad stroller, and what a breath of fresh air it is to finally get a great one.
You may be able to see from the photos that the storage underneath the Mountain Buggy Nano is on the small side. It’s not CRAZY small, but certainly not as generous as my City Mini.  That’s pretty typical of the more compact prams, so there’s not a lot you can do to get away from this. As most parents know, the ideal pram will still only solve about 80 per cent of your problems!
That’s great to hear as we have just got our bubblebum. It’s ridiculous what car rental companies charge. We took that option on our US road trip as we didn’t have time to try to buy them (and there was no way I was travelling with two car seats from Australia – our kids were too young for bubblebum like options then and they are not allowed in Australia anyway) and it still annoys me that we paid $200 for seats that were not that great.
At just 25 pounds for the stroller, this car seat and stroller is among the lightest in the market (though this can still be heavy for some parents). Bringing the stroller in and out of the car is a breeze and you can even fold it easily with just one hand. Additionally, we love that this stroller comes with adjustable handlebars making it very easy to adjust for different parent heights.
The Summer 3D lite Convenience Stroller is a durable stroller with a lightweight, stylish aluminum frame and is one of the lightest and most feature rich convenience strollers on the market. With an easy to fold frame and carry strap, you can be on-the-go or stow-and-go with ease. Convenience stroller recommended for babies from birth to 50 pounds. It comes with a Rayshade Stroller Cover that provides important protection from the sun's harmful rays. The Rayshade extends the stroller canopy from head to toe as needed by the sun's angle.

Don’t rely on baggage handlers to treat your car seat with kid gloves. Car seats are easy to lift and toss, often treated as oversized baggage, and are sometimes left on a rainy or snowy jetway as items are loaded into the cargo hold. One way to save some wear and tear is to gate check your car seat (on most airlines it will be returned to you at your destination gate). You’ll also want to make sure that your car seat is adequately protected before you check it. Packing it back in the original car seat box is the gold standard, but most people don’t have it on hand. Instead, look for a sturdy, water-resistant bag and pad the seat with heavy jackets or other soft items if space allows. In a pinch, a sturdy, 60-gallon garbage bag will protect your car seat from rain or grime.


Compared to your normal car seat, it’s like carrying a feather. And for $58 or $74? Forget it. You’ll spend more than $100 renting a crappy car seat, so just bring your own. I have both of these seats for my girls and they go on every flight we take. I look at parents schlepping their 26-lb Britax or Chicco (this one is 11 lbs!) and I feel bad for them. Plus, it’s nice to leave your regular car seats in your car. At home. Undisturbed.
The most drool-worthy of these for jetsetting families is surely the Mountain Buggy Nano Protect travel system. The Mountain Buggy Protect car seat weighs in at just 8lbs, while the Nano stroller weighs only 13lbs and can fold up to the size of carry-on luggage and fit in the overhead bin. That’s a huge time saver considering that we’ve sometimes waited for 45 minutes at the end of the jetway for our gate checked stroller, or worse haven’t received it until the baggage claim area. Does the Mountain Buggy Nano stroller sound great, but you already have your own infant seat to use? The Nano also offers the option to use an included belt to secure any infant car seat to it! You can even use the strap to secure a small/medium size travel toddler car seat. It we were going back to the beginning of our stroller buying days and this was available, you can be sure we’d own it. Check prices for the Mountain Buggy Nano stroller here.

Are you looking for a stroller for twins, but you aren't really sure which options to consider or what to look for? Depending on the age of your twins, you'll need to consider different things. If you have infant twins and hope to use your stroller with infant car seats, not all doubles accept two car seats, in fact, most of the products we reviewed did not. In the top scoring competitors for two, only one works with two car seat carriers, the UPPAbaby Vista Double. To solve this problem, you could consider purchasing the Joovy Twin Roo+ frame product. It is a great way to transport twins until they grow out of their car seats and are old enough for a different strolling product. This can also be a good move if you aren't sure what kind of stroller you want. If you decided in those first 9 months that you'll never run with your little ones, then you can spend your money on a more traditional option or vice-versa.


Snack trays and parent trays with decently sized cup holders are a real lifesaver for long outings. You don’t want to be stuck in the zoo on a hot summer day with no good place to store water for both of you. Having it right at hand will be very convenient. Of course, there’s always the chance she’ll play the “drop the sippy” game, but that’s where a second parent cup holder and extra storage baskets on the stroller can save the day.
The Chicco BravoFor2, which has a tandem frame that’s the same width as a single stroller, is the easiest double stroller to fold, store, and carry of all the models we tested. It offers the best combination of seats for children who are about two and a half years apart, while still being a breeze to push and turn. We were especially impressed with the handles designed for the big kid to grip while standing and riding, a feature that makes the BravoFor2 a much safer and more hassle-free stroller to use than any other sit-and-stand model we tested. Some of the other tandem strollers we looked at are more versatile (our pick can work only with Chicco infant car seats, for example, while others can take multiple brands), made of higher-quality materials, or designed to accommodate twins—but the inexpensive BravoFor2 really can make life easier for families with a baby and a toddler who is 2½ or older.
You also need to ensure that if you are traveling internationally, that your car seat is approved for use at your destination. The seats below should be fine for use in North America and Europe (but check before purchasing). Australia is more difficult as they have more stringent laws and the majority of the time, a seat purchased elsewhere will not be permitted in Australia due to the fact that they also need to be installed at an anchor point at the top or behind the seat.
What else is there to like about this travel system? This one is perfect for families that drive compact cars. The base fits comfortably in small cars and comes with an easy release car seat so you won’t have a hard time getting it in and out of the car or stroller. Meanwhile, the stroller is light to use and easy to assemble and comes with an extended canopy for added sun protection.
Whether or not to bring a child’s car seat for travel and how to fly with an airplane car seat without going crazy are always burning questions for family travelers. We’ve been through these situations many times with our own children over the years, so in this post we’ll try to address the most common questions about car seats & travel we hear when parents are planning a big trip with little kids. We’ll show you how to find the best travel car seat for your needs our best hacks to make traveling with your child’s portable car seat easier!

Despite this extra storage, the stroller itself isn't noticeably larger than the 3Dlite, though it weighs about four pounds more. It also has a better canopy, though we found pulling too hard on the canopy pulled the seat out of its reclined position. The wheels are slightly different than the 3Dlite, but we had all the same issues with obstacles and maneuverability.
The simple but effective Baby Jogger City Mini Double basically takes two of our full-size stroller pick, the Baby Jogger City Mini, and places them side by side. Of all the strollers we tested, this safe, sturdy, reasonably priced ride is one of the most comfortable doubles for both kids, with deep, reclining seats and generous but separate canopies. It’s the narrowest, lightest side-by-side we tried, one of the easiest to push and maneuver (only true jogging strollers performed better), and the quickest to fold of all those we tested. It took less than four minutes to assemble and had the most compact fold of all the side-by-sides we examined, and while it wasn’t as easy to carry as our top tandem pick, it was much easier to lug down stairs or lift into a trunk than any of the other side-by-sides we tried and even many of the tandems. While not the most versatile double we tested, it can take one infant car seat of many brands, and you can also attach a Baby Jogger Glider Board for a third, standing passenger. You can use the City Mini Double from birth without a car seat with the seat reclined.
“I loved pushing the stroller,” raved one of our testers. “It was super smooth and barely needed any effort. My son seemed to be pretty comfortable in it as well. He even took a nap in it.” One reviewer, who used this stroller in New York City, loved that it handled different terrains — from sidewalks to subway platforms — with ease. In terms of negatives, our testers thought that the stroller’s carrying strap was uncomfortable.

Mountain Buggy is not a brand I’d usually associate with light and compact – they’re better known for their all-terrain vehicles, however they’ve managed to work in some of their big pram features into this compact travel pram. It has a reasonable sized hood and an okay basket given the size of the pram. It only has a half recline so you will need the additional bassinet or car seat attachment to be suitable from birth, but it more than makes up for that with a 20kg weight capacity – so while not ideal for newborns it’s fantastic for toddlers and even preschoolers.
Thanks to reader Kate who reminded me I hadn’t updated this post – didn’t mean to leave you all hanging!  We’ve so far taken the Nano on two flights – and I”ve had mixed success getting it onboard as carry on.  One one flight – they said yes, once I showed them it folded up etc.  But the flight attendant WAS a bit narky about it, so I did have to insist for them to do it.
Side-by-side strollers are about twice as wide as tandem strollers, so they take up more space and can be difficult to fit through smaller-than-average doorways and crowded store aisles. Still, they give both kids an equal spot in the stroller, allow both to stretch out their legs, and generally maneuver much better than tandems, which are typically longer and more difficult to turn. A side-by-side is likely a better choice if you do most of your strolling outside and cover longer distances. Double jogging strollers are usually side-by-side designs.
Now, what do we like about this travel system? Well, there is the adjustable 5-point harness that comes with shoulder pads. It even has belly pads and a pillow for added comfort and protection. Its extendable canopy also ensures that your kid stays protected from the sun even if you stay outdoors for hours. Also the peek- o- Boo window in the canopy can keep your child amused for a while.
Given that it will hold two children of up to 50 pounds, it’s perhaps surprising to hear so many owners say how easy the Graco Roomfor2 is to maneuver. The wheels are a little smaller than those of some competitors, which makes it more suitable for town than uneven terrain. Not only is it one of the most affordable strollers on our list, it arguably has one of the most comprehensive feature lists. It’s certainly on par with strollers that cost a lot more.
This answer will vary by family. It could be as many as three or four, or it could be none. If you choose to wear your baby, you could potentially make it through your baby's first few years without a stroller of any kind. Alternatively, you could find baby wearing difficult or not your thing, or you may prefer using specific products designed for different activities. If this describes you, then you could end up with three or more products throughout baby's strolling years; these could include a full-size option, jogger, umbrella, or even a versatile adventure trailer.
Both seats recline individually and have their own canopies and foot rests so you can control sun exposure, etc. for each child. The rear seat reclines all the way back into an infant bassinet. Both seats have a child tray with 2 cup holders each. Parents get some great creature comforts too, like 2 deep cup holders and covered storage compartment.

We initially considered testing the Baby Trend Sit N Stand, since Baby Trend is credited with inventing the sit-and-stand stroller concept. BabyGearLab, however, says it is “not a stroller we would recommend no matter what your goal or budget,” while Lucie’s List writes that it is longer and more front heavy than the Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite and not as high quality as the Graco RoomFor2, two strollers that we did test but didn’t find to be top performers.


With the school holidays fast approaching now is a good time to think about what is the best travel pram for you to take on your next trip! What makes a pram the best travel pram? We’re looking for something that is light, compact, narrow, easy to fold, ideally something that can come right to the boarding gate at the airport, and better even if it fits in the overhead storage on the plane so you don’t have check your pram in as luggage.

For parents of twins the Joovy Twin Roo allows you to place two car seats in tandem side by side so that your little ones can look at each other or face in different directions as they ride. The enormous storage basket provides all the space you could need for double the baby supplies while the four cup holders will stock enough refreshments for the longest of journeys.
Most strollers are big, bulky, and take multiple hands (and maybe a foot) to fold. Not the Baby Jogger City Mini, which weighs 18 lbs and can be folded in seconds with a single pull of its innovative Quick-Fold handle. In our testing, we also loved the City Mini's excellent maneuverability, including its tight turning radius and the ease with which the three-wheel stroller can mount curbs and other tricky obstacles.
The Chicco Keyfit caddy stroller frame has been designed exclusively for the Chicco Keyfit 22 and 30 Infant car seats, and conveniently pops up from flat easily with a one hand action allowing you to hold your baby in their car seat in the other hand. At just 11.2 pounds this frame is one of the lightest on the market and fits easily into tight spaces. The large basket provides an ideal place for all of baby’s diapers, toys, and supplies and with the adjustable handle, parents of different heights will be comfortable while pushing baby about town.
That said, there's enough here that this could be your only stroller if your needs are limited to the occasional walk or trip to the zoo.

According to the FAA, children under 40lbs are safest in an approved restraint (though they’re wrong about forward-facing at 20lbs!).

While Graco redefined the market more than a decade ago with their Nautilus combination seat, it was always far too heavy and bulky to be a good travel booster seat or travel combination seat.

These three-mode harnessed booster seats for travel are narrower, cheaper and lighter than the Nautilus! There’s certainly a lot to like. Check the latest reviews and prices here.
