8 Best Lightweight Strollers For Newborns and Toddlers

The first stroller I ever bought felt like I was pushing a barrel of bricks! I don’t know why something thats meant to carry a 10lb baby weighed so dang much.

Plus it was impossible to travel with that stroller. 

So I was determined to find the absolute best lightweight stroller thats perfect for travel and home life (plus everything in-between).

✔️  If You’re Curious (Or In A Rush): This is the MOST popular lightweight stroller with our readers. 

Summer 3DLite Convenience Stroller

Stroller Weight: 13lbs
Max. Child Weight: 50lbs

Why We Love It?

The Summer 3DLite Convenience stroller is lightweight and compact, which makes it easy to carry around.

The stroller has a large seat area where the baby can sit comfortably.

The four-position recliner of the stroller makes it the right choice for babies from newborn to toddler. The stroller has a five-point harness system that provides complete safety for your baby. 

The stroller is made of a durable aluminum frame that does not rust or wears off easily. 

The anti-shock front wheels of the stroller provide a smooth ride. The rear wheels are lockable that prevents the stroller from accidentally rolling off.  

The stroller comes fitted with a removable canopy that protects the baby from sun and rain. The stroller also comes with an extra-large storage basket and a cup holder to hold your baby’s essentials. 

What Could Be Improved?

The canopy does not stretch enough to provide complete protection from the sun for the baby.

The cushioning on the seat should also be improved so that the baby can sit more comfortably. 

The Clutch Stroller by Delta Children

Why We Love It?

The stroller is lightweight, compact and ideal for travel. It comes with a travel bag in which you can place the stroller and easily tuck it in the overhead compartment of a plane, subway, or the back of a car.

The under-carriage bag of the stroller provides additional storage space. 

Stroller Weight: 11.25lbs
Max. Child Weight
: 50lbs

The stroller has a five-point harness system, which ensures that your baby is safe and does not fall off easily.

The stroller also comes fitted with a sun visor that protects the baby from harsh sunlight. 

What Could Be Improved?

The biggest drawback of the stroller is that it cannot be reclined. Thus, if the baby is sleeping, you have no choice but to make the baby sit and sleep.

 Though the stroller comes with a canopy, it is very small that it cannot provide complete protection. The canopy should be made larger and more stretchable. 

The stroller is also available in only four colors. More color options can be provided.

Jovial's Portable Folding Lightweight Baby Stroller

Stroller Weight: 10lbs
Max. Child Weight
: 35lbs

This a travel-friendly stroller that is lightweight and compact.

You can easily fold it and store it in the travel bag that comes along with it.

The stroller can be tucked easily on the back of your car or the storage compartment of a plane. 

The stroller seat is spacious, and your baby can sit or sleep comfortably in it. The seat is adjustable and can be propped up if the baby wants to sit or lay flat and used as a bassinet if the baby is sleeping.   

The five-point harness of the stroller provides complete protection for the baby.

The stroller also comes with a canopy that offers excellent protection from the sun. 

The foot-activated brake of the stroller makes it easy for you to control it. 

What Could Be Improved?

The overall look of the stroller can be improved as it gives a kind of cheap look (but that could just be my personal preference).

The stroller can also be made available in more colors so that customers have a wider selection. 

Baby Jogger City Tour Stroller

Why We Love It?

This is a light-weight stroller that can be folded easily with one hand. The auto-lock mechanism of the stroller helps lock the same for secure storage in the travel bag. 

The stroller seat can be adjusted in a sitting and reclining position as per your request. 

Stroller Weight: 14lbs
Max. Child Weight
: 20lbs

The UV 50+ canopy helps protect your baby from harsh sunlight. The canopy also has a peek-a-boo window through which your baby can see things. 

The stroller comes with an under-seat storage basket and a pouch where you can store the baby products. 

What Could Be Improved?

The stroller seat is shallow and hence not too comfortable for the baby. The fabric used in the seat is a bit slippery, which also adds to the discomfort.

Moreover, there is no option to lay the seat flat for the baby to sleep. 

Mountain Buggy Nano Stroller

Stroller Weight: 13lbs
Max. Child Weight
: 44lbs

Why We Love It?

This is an infant car seat ready stroller that can be used up till your baby is four years old.

The stroller is lightweight and compact and can be folded and stored in the carry bag, which comes along with it. 

The stroller comes fitted with a sun hood coverage that protects your little one from harsh sunlight. The storage bag underneath the stroller is big enough to accommodate all your baby products. 

What Could Be Improved?

The folding mechanism definitely needs improvement. When compared to other strollers, this one cannot be folded easily with one hand. 

When the canopy is not down, it covers the stroller handle making it inconvenient. Moreover, since the stroller is lightweight, it tends to tip off when heavy diaper bags are hung on the handle. 

The stroller also does not have a footrest. So it can be uncomfortable for older babies. 

Pocklit Lightweight Stroller

Why We Love It?

This stroller holds the 2014 Guinness world record for the most compact stroller.

Though it is small and compact, the stroller is super strong owing to the high quality and durable materials used for its manufacture. The compact nature of the stroller makes it easy to fold and store while traveling.

The stroller has a 5-point harness system with a 3-pint buckle that can be adjusted according to the height of the baby.

The sun canopy of the stroller provides enough protection for the baby.

A unique feature of the stroller is that it can stand alone when it is folded and does not require any support. 

What Could Be Improved?

The stroller is a bit flimsy and is not the right choice on uneven pavements. 

The seat of the stroller cannot be reclined. Thus, the baby may not feel comfortable once asleep. 

Best Lightweight Stroller For Twins

Delta Children LX Side by Side Tandem Umbrella Stroller​

Stroller Weight: 18.3lbs
Maximum Weight: 35lbs

Jeep Scout Double Stroller

Stroller Weight: 18.3lbs
Maximum Weight: 55lbs

These are our absolute favorite lightweight double strollers for twins.

At less than 20 lbs, they are both easily transported and folded quickly for planes, buses, and long car rides. 

The material is durable and resistant, your twins will outgrow it before it breaks. 

Since they are both so lightweight, they are easy to push and maneuver. The only con I have is they don’t recline back much, so if your babies fall asleep, they’ll be almost sitting.
