A spacious stroller for a 2.5yo that is very tall and big for his age

Kate • 22 Jul 2023


I'm looking for a stroller for my son, he is 2.5 years old but is very tall and big for his age. I currently have the Hauck Rapid 4 Plus, but his head comes above the backrest now so I need something with a higher backrest. It also doesn't fold down easily, I would ideally like something lighter as well. I need a bumper bar, as Zak is autistic and I need something to secure him in at times and when I am not able to fit the harness on him. Would really appreciate any suggestions you may have!

Thank you so much, Kate

Hey, Kate,

If the Rapid 4 Plus got too small for him, I just have to say don't expect a lighter stroller now. If he needs space that is even bigger, the stroller needs to be big enough and that means some weight. My best bet is to get a sturdy but not too heavy one like the Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 (or simply the 1st City Mini GT, pre-owned) or the Baby Jogger City Elite (2), which are sturdy and roomy enough. Two more to consider that have enough space - the Valco Trend and the Britax B-Motion 4 Plus - these all I mentioned are the roomiest models that will last you.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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