The Best Lightweight Strollers

by ANB Baby Sales 24 Mar 2022


A lightweight stroller is a super-helpful piece of baby gear; they’re easier to carry, push, travel with and much more. So many lightweight strollers feature all the style and innovation of regular strollers too, which means you don’t need to compromise on design or functionality either.

Whether you're looking to buy your first stroller, or you need something that just works with your life better, we’ve put together a collection of the best lightweight strollers that will work for you and your baby.

What makes the best lightweight stroller?

Before you invest in a lightweight stroller, we’ve got some hints and tips for you:

  • Look for a stroller that weighs less than 33 lbs. Anything that weighs this or less is classed as a lightweight stroller. Some strollers even weigh as little as 11 lbs., like the GB Pockit Compact Lightweight Stroller .
  • Look for stroller features that will work for you and your baby. Keep an eye out for things like:
    1. Recline options - perfect for younger babies, or toddlers that sleep on the go.
    2. Stroller storage - you’ll need this if you’re on vacation particularly.
    3. Sun protection - look for hoods that come right down if you’re going to be out in the sun with your stroller.
    4. Compact fold - this might be needed if you will be traveling or flying, with some lightweight strollers folding small enough to be classed as hand luggage.
    5. Terrain suitability - if you want to run with your stroller, or if you’ll be taking it on rougher terrain, make sure it’s suitable for this. Many lightweight strollers have small wheels and these make for a bumpy ride if they’re not pushed on a smooth surface.
  • Your baby or toddler’s age - make sure, particularly with smaller babies and newborns, that your stroller is suitable for use for their age range. Many lightweight strollers are suited for babies aged over six months.
  • Budget and use - if you plan to use your lightweight stroller as your only stroller, you may consider investing more in it, compared to say a lightweight stroller you don’t plan to use all the time. If you don’t plan to use it only occasionally you may want to invest less, or perhaps compromise on some functionality.

Best Lightweight Stroller for Flying and Travel

Heading to the airport with children can be a daunting thought, but for many families frequent air travel is a necessity, and if this is the case for you, you need a lightweight stroller that is light, compact and robust. The GB Pockit Compact Lightweight Stroller weighs in at a super-light 9.5 lbs. (circa 4.5kg). It folds into an ultra-compact, handbag shape and size package that means it can be stowed in the plane’s overhead compartment.

Practical for flying features high on this lightweight stroller’s list of best bits, but it also scores highly on general stroller practicality. Functionality such as the one handed, fast fold is useful all the time, not just when flying. Switching from pushing to carrying in seconds is perfect for any traveling, use in the city or when commuting, when you need fast functionality. The GB Pockit also has a storage basket and height adjustable, padded straps for the comfort and safety of your little one.

Best Lightweight Stroller for Vacations

If you’re looking for a stroller for a vacation; something lightweight and compact is ideal, but you could also really benefit from a stroller with storage, good SPF and that lies flat for naps on the go. The SILVER CROSS Jet Super Compact Stroller Special Edition does all of this.

This lightweight stroller is cabin approved for most airlines, with the bumper bar doubling as a luggage handle to wheel like a suitcase. One of the only lightweight strollers that can be used from birth right up to 55 lbs., this stroller will see you and your baby through many years. You can also expect to enjoy the luxury, comfort and quality that is synonymous with the Silver Cross brand, including luxe leatherette details throughout and flip-flop friendly brakes - which are essential when on vacation!

Best Lightweight Stroller for Toddlers

When you’re a toddler parent, the chances are you still need a stroller, but what you need from it is different now. A lightweight stroller could tick all the boxes; they’re easy to maneuver, they still provide a comfy ride for tired legs and offer your toddler a place to sleep on the go.

The JOOLZ Aer Ultimate Lightweight Luxury Stroller is perfect for older children. It has a comfortable high-back seat for bigger children. This seat also reclines which is good for smaller babies over six months and naps on the go. The stroller doesn't have a bumper bar (these can be purchased separately) so your toddler can easily climb in and out (often they’re favorite past-time!). With lots of other handy features, like a one-handed fold, large shopping basket and a comfortable elastic carry strap, you and your toddler will be ready for adventures with this stroller.

Best Lightweight Stroller for Newborns

Keeping your newborn safe and comfortable while in the stroller is your priority, but that doesn’t have to mean you have to push around a heavy stroller. The Bugaboo Lynx Complete Stroller is a lightweight, full size stroller that is famed for its easy maneuverability. Suitable for use from birth with its cozy, comfortable seat; it’s also got an extra large sun canopy, plenty of storage room in the basket. The large, puncture-proof wheels will make for a smooth ride no matter what the terrain, and it’ll grow with your baby right through into toddlerhood.
