A lightweight buggy for short parents and a not-too-big 9mo

Vilma • 29 Mar 2022


What lightweight strollers/buggy would you recommend for short parents (I am 1.55m.)? I am looking with lying down position, please. My baby is almost 9months old and he is not very big.

Heya, Vilma,

Actually, the lightweight travel strollers are all made quite small and not too friendly for overly tall parents, so you, as a short one, should be good with pretty much any of them ;-) Really. Whether you pick something like a Maclaren Atom (full Maclaren Atom stroller review here) or a Chicco Goody (full Chicco Goody stroller review here), or check this article with our top 2021 ultracompact pushchair HERE, you can choose pretty much anything.

Only with larger strollers, you'd need to think about the size, weight, and an adjustable handlebar, so no worries there.

I am, however, having trouble giving a better piece of advice as you didn't state your budget, the terrain, and regularity of use of your new buggy (it's different if you need it for every day and harder terrain and if you need it for occasional use, traveling or around shops), so try to get some inspiration from what I already said, think about the details, and send me another question if still unsure ^_^

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
