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.
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.
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.
Britax Essentials Convertibles — the Emblem and Allegiance convertible car seats are heavier than the Scenera NEXT, SureRide, or Contender, but they install easily both on the airplane and upon arrival. However, the open belt path can sometimes place the airplane’s buckle right behind the child’s back when installed forward facing. Many kiddos find this uncomfortable.

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.


This is a lighter model, especially for Chicco. The car seat itself is also on the lighter side, making it great for people who have to do a lot of switching between cars and stroller. The car seat cover is easy to remove and machine washable. The double front wheel and lightweight frame of the stroller makes for better maneuverability. You can fold it with one hand for compact, free-standing storage. Parents really like this one for airline travel.
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.
This product is not the right choice if you want a one and done option but plan to jog. It also isn't good for hiking or moving off of paved surfaces for very far. Despite these limitations, it is a great everyday option that works well for travel. We think most parents will love this economical choice that can be used with an infant car seat, full-size product, and lightweight traveler.
If there isn’t a safe spot for your kiddo to sleep at your destination, you’ll probably want to bring along a travel crib or Pack ‘n Play (or other collapsible play yard). Will a regular PNP do the trick? Yes, absolutely. However, many parents prefer the lightweightey-ness and portability of a travel crib. If you travel a fair amount, it’s definitely a worthwhile convenience purchase. 

If your child is a frequent traveler, owning a lightweight car seat for travelling abroad is crucial for getting through the airport, rental car shuttles and taxis. We love our full-sized, full-features seats at home but would never dream of transporting 50lbs of car seats to the other side of the world. Here are our favorite travel-worthy car seats for kids of all ages (we actually own most of them).
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.

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.


Check out our full review of the latest Ride Safer travel vest, the Delight. It’s now an indispensable piece of travel gear for our family and we’ve been so glad to have it for our year-long trip around the world. The Ride Safer travel vest is truly a game-changer, in that it provides a safe restraint for kids 3 and up (though we feel more comfortable using it for age 4 and up, especially if there’s no top tether and/or parent sitting in back). Note: not for use on airplanes. 
If you want an extremely affordable booster seat that’s light enough for your child to carry, the simple-but-functional Cosco Topside may fit the bill. Unlike most other backless booster seats, it doesn’t have a shoulder belt guide – that makes it more likely to fit slightly older kids (indeed, the minimum height is 43″ unlike the usual 40″). But at just 2.5lbs and less than $20, it may be a great choice for some families! Check the latest prices here.
The Sit N Stand is great for people who have children of different ages, but it can work for twins as well. It’s compatible with Baby Trend Flex Loc infant car seats and several other brands. The stroller weighs approximately 32.5 pounds. Dimensions are 49″ L X 21.5″ W X 43″ H. It comes in 4 color options: carbon, elixir, millenium, and stormy. Maximum weight should not exceed 40 pounds per child. The rear standing platform is for children over 2.5 years old and below 40 inches high.

The B-Safe 35 is a fairly popular seat and scored 8.8 in our infant car seat ratings. It has two layers of side impact protection, a steel frame, and impact absorbing base. The B-Lively stroller (like other 3-wheeled models) is technically a 4-wheeled stroller, since two wheels act as the third front wheel. The swivel front double wheel adds to the stability when taking sharp turns through narrow places.

This product is not a good choice for families who don't intend to run or go off-road. The added weight and bulk will make it hard to lift and stow, so you'll want to avoid this trouble if jogging isn't in your plans. We love that the Urban Glide 2 is so functional and thoughtfully designed that parents can use it for almost any kind of outing. With a price tag lower than some of the competition, and cheaper than many full-size options that offer less, we think this cool jogger is an excellent buy that fills multiple needs that saves you money all in an enjoyable package. The Thule Urban Glide 2 also works with a variety of infant car seats with the purchase of the appropriate adapter.
If you're looking for a relatively low-cost stroller that has almost all of the best features of our top pick, the Chicco Viaro is the best value of the strollers we've tested. It has a three-wheel design that's very similar to the Baby Jogger City Mini, with a lightweight frame, a tight turning radius, and a pull-to-fold handle that lets you fold the stroller in seconds.

One of the biggest advantages that this stroller car seat combo has over other models is that it offers something for children who may be too big to sit comfortably in a regular stroller seat - a jump seat or standing platform. It still has the options of two regular stroller seats or two car seats. A covered parent tray with two cup holders and extra large storage basket keep all your essentials at hand.


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.

This system is a great option for families on tight budgets who don’t need a ton of features. It includes the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 30 infant car seat. The similar Graco SnugRide 35 rated 9.2 on our list. As for the weight and height limits, the car seat fits babies from 4 pounds to 30 pounds and no more than 50 pounds for the stroller. Unfolded dimensions of the stroller are 27.5” L x 41” W x 22” H. Folded dimensions are 28.5” L x 18.5” W x 22.5” H. Car seat dimensions are 26.7” L x 17.5 W x 24.2” H.
The Baby Trend Expedition Double is a budget-friendly option for two that you can occasionally jog with. This double product is a good option for anyone looking for the jogger look and feel, without the price tag that comes with a more traditional jogger. The Expedition Double sports pneumatic rubber wheels that work well on a variety of terrains, and a locking swivel front wheel that makes it suitable for jogging. Even if you don't jog, the features make it one of the better choices for moving over uneven terrains like grass and gravel. With identical seating, including stow pockets and canopy, and a useful parent's tray and under seat storage, this inexpensive product has features that make daily use easy and convenient, which helped it win an award for Best Value in our Double Strollers Review.

While it is harder to push, and a wee bit heavier, it is easier to use overall and earned a higher score for quality than the competitors in our umbrella review. The Yoyo+ is more expensive than similar products so it isn't the best option for families on a budget or parents who only need a travel stroller for a single event. Should you want a less expensive second product for travel or grandma's house, the ZOE XL1 BEST v2 has a similar style and features for a significantly lower price. If budget isn't a concern, and you want the absolute best in a lightweight product, the BabyZen Yoyo+ is a standout.
There’s also no way to ensure that the seat provided will be one that you think is appropriate for your child’s age and development. A car rental company may say that they have a seat for your 18mo baby, and that could be a forward-facing only combination seat. You’d potentially be left in a lurch if you realize that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends rear-facing until 2yo at a minimum, but ideally as old as 4yo. Even worse, some of the bargain-priced seats that rental car companies stock may be outgrown early and there may be no seat available that fits your child.
A one-handed fold design and lightweight aluminum frame make the stroller fairly easy to carry. First time parents appreciated the level indicators on the seat base so they could easily tell if the angle was good during installation. The seat clicks easily onto the stroller as well. The canopy offers good SPF 50+ sun protection, and there’s a mesh peek-a-boo window to keep an eye on baby.
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.
Newly upgraded in 2018, this stroller has more headroom per child and more sun coverage. Parents love the smooth ride and how easy it is to fold and transport. They found it fairly easy to fit through most doors and aisles. A zippered compartment on the back stores cell phones and keys and can be removed for extra air flow. A large storage basket holds big diaper bags and purses.

Let me start by acknowledging the top reason why some parents elect not to bring their children’s car seats when they travel: convenience. Lugging a child safety seat, especially a bulky toddler car seat, through airports and across continents just isn’t as much fun as not taking it, right? (Not nearly as much hassle if you have a lightweight car seat for travel, of course – keep reading for the best carseat for travel for your family.)


Once you arrive at your destination, your child will need a car seat or booster seat if you plan to ride in a car. Can’t you just rent a car seat? It’s not ideal. You have no way of knowing the history of the car seat you’ll be provided: Was it in a supposedly-minor accident that could have left it compromised? Were the straps washed in a way contrary to manufacturer instructions?
The most popular configurations are side by side and in line, explained in more detail below. However, double strollers are also available in the light, manoeuvrable umbrella style, which sports a light shade on top for sun or rain protection. A heavy duty version, the jogging stroller, is designed to tackle rougher terrain. The sit-and-stand stroller offers flexibility, with either one child standing, or both kids seated and buckled. Learn more about strollers and purchasing tips with our stroller buying guide.
Here are my recommendations for what I feel are currently the best travel car seats in the “convertible car seat” category, meaning those that can be used both rear- and forward-facing. All of these car seats are FAA-approved for air travel, but bear in mind that most car seats are FAA-approved for air travel and with little to no consideration given to the size or width of the car seat and how it might–or might not–actually fit in an airplane seat. Car seat dimensions are included for each of these along with other considerations for car seat travel pros and cons.

This fun-looking travel system is super affordable and has great prints and patterns that parents seem to love. The well-padded seat on the stroller has multiple recline settings plus a removable large head support pillow that can also be used in the car seat. Parents like the padding and say the car seat straps are easy to buckle. They love the many compartments in the stroller, especially the bottom basket and the covered parent tray.

The Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 is another car seat stroller combo that’s good for tight budgets and features the Baby Trend Flex Loc infant car seat. The car seat fits babies from 5 - 30 pounds. The stroller works for infants and children up to 50 pounds. Unfolded stroller dimensions are 40" L x 23.50" W x 40" H and the car seat dimensions are 26" L x 16.5" W x 25" H.


As you might already be aware that Baby Trend is one of the leading baby products manufacturers and have etched their reputation for great quality. This travel system is just an example of it. The car seat weighs close to 11 pounds while the stroller is at 25 pounds bringing it all to 36 pounds, not bad at all considering that the stroller can accommodate up to a 50 pounds!
They basically look like two strollers placed side by side, offering each child an equal view of the scenery, as well as the freedom to interact, or in some cases, get in each other's space. The configuration makes room for nifty features, such as reclining backs and adjustable seats. Other models can accept an infant car seat, if not two. Ensure the weight on either side is relatively balanced; otherwise, the stroller could veer to one side.
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.

Lightweight/Umbrella stroller: Though new designs mean that many standard strollers are only barely heavier than these models, umbrella strollers typically weigh 15 lbs or less and fold up compactly into a long, narrow shape (like an umbrella). These models are great for travel, or if you have an older child who doesn't need a stroller all the time. They're typically less expensive (often under $100), but usually don't hold as much or have as many features. For our top picks in this category see our guide to the best lightweight and umbrella strollers.


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.
It’s also very easy to install in the forward-facing mode (from 1 year and older) and remove using seat belts, and includes its own seat belt lock-offs for extra stability without the need for additional locking clips. It is also LATCH-equipped. It measures 26″H x 18.5″W x 21″D. Rear facing from 5 to 40 lbs, forward-facing up to 55 lbs. Weighs 17.6 lbs.   Find it online at:  Amazon.com     Baby Earth
It should be noted, however, that this travel system is not meant for jogging. But, it does come with pneumatic tires so it can take on rough terrains quite easily. Plus, the three wheel stroller provides outstanding ease of maneuverability compared to conventional travel system strollers. Parents do not have to worry so much about going downhill because it comes with easy to operate footbrakes on the rear tires.

This model accepts all Baby Trend car seats and those from these brands Chicco Key Fit 30, Combi Shuttle 33, Cosco, Evenflo Embrace, Graco Snugride 22 and 35, and Safe Seat 32, Maxi-Cosi Mico, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 30 and Safety 1st on Board 35. The included parent tray holds two cups and has a space for your keys and phone to keep your hands free. It also features a very large mesh storage basket for your diaper bag and baby essentials.​
Even if your stroller doesn't come with all the bells and whistles, you can still customize afterwards. Car seat adapters allow you to attach infant car seats directly to the stroller, great for moving your baby without unbuckling and disturbing their nap. Weather shields and shades come in all shapes and sizes, including universal covers that should work with any stroller. Stroller hooks are handy for holding shopping and tote bags so your hands are free to push the stroller. When you want to pack your stroller for ease of transport, stash it in a sturdy stroller bag. Other accessories include second seats and bassinets, stroller cushions and support, drink holds, and food trays.
Ok, so first of all I'm an avid review reader. When picking this seat I read all the reviews and compared it to many seats like it along the way. From what I could see this seat was the seat that best fit our needs. It fits our car comfortably (2016 Sienna) & my son seems to like it . I did read on some other reviews they disliked the shoulder pads, but we use our are they seem to fit our baby well. The straps are super easy to adjust, and I don't have any problem reaching the seat to take the baby in and out (I'm 5'4"). At this point my baby is 9 months old and in the 75th percentile for Hieght, he is rear facing and looks very comfortable. After reading the reviews and ratings on all for me it was between a Britax Marathon, Graco my ride & forever, or the Chicco Nextfit. I mainly decided on this because it seemed to rate higher overall and I read a lot of reviews that said it didn't seem as bulky as many other convertible seats. We have ours behind our driver seat and neither My husband or I have any issue with the leg room. If I am able to update my review tomorrow with pictures in the car I will add them. Hope this helps, happy shopping :)
This product is not compatible with any infant car seat making it a bad choice for parents with infant twins who want to stroll. It also doesn't roll very well over uneven terrain. However, we think the Scooter X2 is a crowd pleaser for a reason, and we think most parents of multiples will enjoy the quality and features it offers for the price, which is why it won a Best Value award in our Double Strollers Review.
A car seat travel cart can be a great help for getting through the airport. These carts essentially add wheels to your seat so that you can pull it along like wheeled luggage – all while your child is riding comfortably! You can even wheel them straight down the aisle of the airplane and then fold them to stow in the overhead bin. These designs are supposedly universal which means that they’ll probably fit your car seat, but they’ll also require a few straps to be secure. These carts tend to be pricey, so they may only be worthwhile for frequent travelers or those who can split the cost with family or friends.
This system is a great option for families on tight budgets who don’t need a ton of features. It includes the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 30 infant car seat. The similar Graco SnugRide 35 rated 9.2 on our list. As for the weight and height limits, the car seat fits babies from 4 pounds to 30 pounds and no more than 50 pounds for the stroller. Unfolded dimensions of the stroller are 27.5” L x 41” W x 22” H. Folded dimensions are 28.5” L x 18.5” W x 22.5” H. Car seat dimensions are 26.7” L x 17.5 W x 24.2” H.
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.
By now you've probably noticed that most travel car seats aren't exactly small. If you're traveling solo or wondering how you'll manage juggling your baby, your baggage and a car seat, check out the BRICA Roll ‘n Go Car Seat Transporter. This neat little gadget allows you to attach your car seat and wheel it around with baby strapped in, just like a piece of luggage – absolute genius!
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.

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.
If your child is a frequent traveler, owning a lightweight car seat for travelling abroad is crucial for getting through the airport, rental car shuttles and taxis. We love our full-sized, full-features seats at home but would never dream of transporting 50lbs of car seats to the other side of the world. Here are our favorite travel-worthy car seats for kids of all ages (we actually own most of them).
The in-line style seats one kid in the front and the other at the back. While this may draw grumbles and various forms of protest from the backseat passenger, some models offer forward- or rear-facing options, or a "staggered" format where one seat is higher than the other. The in-line style is more compact, making it a better fit through doorways and store aisles, or smaller storage spaces.
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 canopy offers good SPF 50+ sun protection, and there’s a mesh peek-a-boo window to keep an eye on baby.

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.**


Where the City Select LUX truly comes into its own, though, is when you add a second seat. We've used this with our two kids as a double stroller and it's mostly worked flawlessly. Though adding the second seat kid gets expensive, you only need that if you need two full-size seats at the same time. If you've got one older kid and one newborn, you can just use the main seat on the lower section and use adapters to connect an infant car seat.
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.
The ZOE XL2 BEST v2 this two-seater version of the ZOE is a functional lightweight option for parents of two that want a travel or smaller option that doesn't sacrifice features for the lighter weight. This ZOE has large canopies, under seat storage, snack cups and seats with a deep recline. The ZOE is great for parents with limited space or who can't or don't want to lift and carry heavier options.
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. There are some things to be aware of, though: It's not that easy to maneuver, as the wheels are small and have trouble with obstacles; we also found that the fold was tricky, requiring two hands most of the time. And though it collapses down nicely, it is actually quite long when folded, which may make storage tricky in certain situations. 

I am not sure but I don’t think you’d be allowed to use the booster seats on the plane and you definitely wouldn’t be able to when the seat belt sign is on. They are not like seat belts in cars and it’s safer to use it without a booster. My kids did find it comfortable to sit on in a car, but I would wonder how they could comfortably sleep on one in a plane given there isn’t a seat belt by their heads to lean on.
From the hospital to preschool, the Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat safely secures your bundle of joy from 5 to 65 pounds. Quickly get your kiddo in and out of the car with ComfortFlex harness system. This convertible car seat easily switches from rear to forward facing when your child is ready. With ReclineSure 9-psoition leveling system and Dual RideRight bubble level-indicators, this infant and toddler car seat fits a ride range of vehicles. Buying a new car seat can be a tough decision, but you only have to make that decision once when you choose the Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat.
Hi Sharon, I’m going to be travelling from Adelaide to South Africa with my six year old son later this year, and I’m wondering whether the Trunki Boostapak can be used on an aeroplane. We’ll be in the air for between 13 and 21 hours, depending on which airline we travel with, so I’m thinking more in terms of comfort on the plane, rather than safety (both comfort and safety when using it as a car seat are very important). The aeroplane seats are really uncomfortable for little kids, especially for extended periods of time.
While this system isn’t cheap, it’s not as much as some of the competitors. The stroller itself might be a better investment than the car seat, since your child may outgrow the seat before they reach the weight limit. If you buy a car seat adaptor, you can easily attach another brand of seat to the B-Lively stroller until your baby is ready to sit up on her own.
The ZOE XL2 BEST v2 this two-seater version of the ZOE is a functional lightweight option for parents of two that want a travel or smaller option that doesn't sacrifice features for the lighter weight. This ZOE has large canopies, under seat storage, snack cups and seats with a deep recline. The ZOE is great for parents with limited space or who can't or don't want to lift and carry heavier options.
The great thing about double strollers is that it’s easy for one person to push them, but they can also be pushed by two people comfortably. One obvious downside to a double stroller is that they can be heavy and wide (depending on design) and aren’t the easiest to push through busy areas. They’re much better suited for wide outdoor spaces like paved zoo paths where you won’t be on crowded sidewalks or having to go through narrow doorways.
I feel the need to review this car seat. I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to research the right car seat for us,and reading other peoples reviews.So here is my duty to you to let you know where I landed... cause it was this or the Britax Marathon ( in the end). I google searched "Narrowest car seats" "Car seats for small cars"... etc. After biting the bullet I went to a Target and looked at it in person (although I bought it on Amazon cause I couldn't fit the box in the car with the kids) It is a good looking seat!
Where can i buy a cheap car seat stroller combo for our family? When it is the safety of your loved one, we wouldn't recommend cheap or used products as it may compromise the safety of your child. Having said that, there are many branded strollers with good safety records that are available in the market to suit the budget of everyone. Kindly read through our in-depth review and check the pricing before you buy them.
While most strollers fold in a single action, it takes four different actions to get the gb Pockit to its smallest size. That's useful when you need it, but similar (and cheaper) umbrella strollers can also get quite small without nearly as much hassle. There are videos where it seems to fold and unfold effortlessly with a flick of the wrist, but in my experience that happens about 25 percent of the time. The other 75 percent you're struggling to get the stroller to do what you want.

We recently started using the Bubblebum as backup for Jacob (almost 6yo) and it’s certainly convenient to have around! Update: We’ve now been using it for almost a year of full-time travel, and we love it! It’s an inflatable cushion that has a positioning clip on each side to keep the lap belt in place and an optional clip to position the shoulder belt at the right spot. It’s an awesome portable car seat for travel! It folds up into a small stuff sack, about the size of a very compact sleeping bag. Inflating is a breeze and Jacob is learning how to get himself in and out. Note: not for use on airplanes. Read our full review or check prices here.

A traditional car seat isn’t always the most convenient way to keep your kids safe when you travel. For in-flight use, we like the Cares Harness (tip: for very young kids who might tunnel under the airplane seatbelt, bring along a small piece of grippy shelf liner to sit on). For short car rides, or hopping in and out of taxis, two alternatives that we like and use are the BubbleBum inflatable booster seat and, for kids 30 to 80 pounds, the Ride Safer Travel Vest.


The braking system felt a little awkward to some parents, especially when wearing sandals. You press it down with your foot to engage, but have to lift it up to disengage. One parent felt the wheels were a bit too small for uneven terrain. The carrier fabric lacks some breathability, so your baby could get sweaty in hot weather. Chubby babies or those who are on the high side of the growth chart may feel too cramped in this seat.
Type of seat. There are two types of seats for infants: convertible seats and rear-facing seats. Convertible seats can often last through the time your child no longer needs a safety seat, which can save you money. But they don’t work as infant carriers and therefore will not attach to a stroller. Think about getting a convertible to stay in the car and a separate travel system so you’ll have an infant seat for the stroller. Then you’ll also have an extra seat for grandma, babysitters, etc.
0-6 months is the only time period when it’s pretty darn difficult to bathe your baby in a sink, unless you have two pairs of hands. Babies over 6 months of age who can sit up unassisted can easily be bathed in a sink or regular tub, although some still prefer a proper baby tub whilst traveling. This particular item is low on my list, though I loved traveling with my ducky tub when my kids were smaller.

Renting used to seem like the best way to go until I found myself at a San Diego rental car agency sorting through a stack of filthy carseats, many of which were missing critical parts. Since then, I’ve inspected the seats at many agencies and airports, and found that although they’re sometimes clean and in good condition, there’s no way to know if you’ll find a safe, clean seat that’s the right size for your child. Car seats are important safety equipment, and it’s no fun being stranded at the airport without one, so I recommend that parents avoid renting a seat. If you have no other alternatives, check out my tips for inspecting a rental car seat here.

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.
Another stroller and carseat combo that new parents might want to consider looking into is the Aire3 Click Connect Travel System from Graco. The combined weight for the stroller (22 pounds) and car seat (14.2 pounds) totals to 36.2 pounds, making it the heaviest system in our list. The car seat is able to accommodate an infant up to 35 pounds while the stroller can hold up to 50 pounds of baby weight.

The Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 is another car seat stroller combo that’s good for tight budgets and features the Baby Trend Flex Loc infant car seat. The car seat fits babies from 5 - 30 pounds. The stroller works for infants and children up to 50 pounds. Unfolded stroller dimensions are 40" L x 23.50" W x 40" H and the car seat dimensions are 26" L x 16.5" W x 25" H.


Therefore, you will need to decide how you would like to use your airplane car seat. A convertible car seat on airplane can be an easy option, allowing for use both rear and forward facing. This means that the seat can be used by newborns when facing the rear, creating a safe enclosure, and as your child grows can be swapped around to be forward facing. Certainly one of the more challenging aspect of using a car seat for travel on airplane is installing it, with restricted space and only one belt.

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.


However, the deeper seat means that it may take up more space reclined in the rear-facing position than models with a shallower seat, so you might reconsider if you have a very small car (forward-facing this shouldn’t be such an issue). Other inclusions: EPS energy-absorbing foam liner, easy to use LATCH attachments, and 2-position crotch strap for the most secure fit. Rear-facing from birth or 4 lbs. to 40 lbs, forward-facing 20 to 50 lbs. 18″W without cup holder18.5″ D x 26.5″ H. Weighs 12.78 lbs.   Find it online at: Amazon.com
