A stroller suitable for a 3mo / 1yo that is parent facing but also compact & lightweight to take on holiday

I need a stroller suitable for a three month to year old that is parent facing but also compact & lightweight to take on holiday... under £300!!

Hi, Andy,

It all depends on how compact and light should it be. My personal preference with this type of strollers is usually the Cybex Mios, and a pre-owned one from the first or second gen, you would most probably be able to get under £300. It would also be the quality, non rattly, not wobbly choice even if bought second hand.

If new is your go-to, however, you can look at the Cybex Eezy S-Twist or the Recaro Lexa Elite, which are kind of around 300, especially if you find a sale piece or an older, 1st gen one still being sold.

There's also the Hauck Eagle 4s though I found this to be too low quality and too short in the seat area to really recommend it.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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