Navigating the world with kids is our M.O., so when we need advice about travel strollers we go right to the source. We got the scoop from Jennifer Cattaui of TriBeCa's cool kid shop, Babesta on everything you need to know to find the best travel stroller to fit your lifestyle. While favorites like Uppababy and Bugaboo make travel systems that are compatible with car seats, there are some really well-designed and innovative lighter options for parents on-the-go. Read on for some of the newest and best travel stroller options out there just in time for your next big adventure.
For the Jetsetter
This featherweight stroller folds up so small it can easily fit in the overhead compartment of any plane. There are two fabrics, one for a bassinet (so it can be used from birth) and one for 6 months and up, all on the same frame. It's also compatible with many popular carseat models. The sleek French design and design and compact size make it ideal for jet-setting parents. We've heard from some families that this stroller has been a lifesaver while traveling to busy cities and since it doesn't have to be checked, it makes zipping through the airport a breeze.
For the Record Breaker
Not that we're competitive or anything, but if you want bragging rights for the most compact stroller in the world (per the folks at the Guinness Book of World Records) then this is the stroller for you. Clocking in at a mere 9.5 lbs, this stroller can fit into a backpack making it perfect for any kind of travels. An important note, is that this stroller doesn't have a bassinet or full recline, so it's only for the older babes and kiddos.
For the Road Warrior
This is the latest innovation, it's a carseat that is also a stroller. The wheels fold up under the seat when you're driving and can be snapped down to create a stroller when you get out. This is great for families that are always in the car or that take frequent road trips. It has been approved by the FAA for use on planes and makes rushing through the airport a snap. It's important to keep in mind though that it's an infant car seat, so it only has a capacity of 35 lbs.
