Is the stroller safe for 4 months old? Is it good for air travel?

Eli • 10 Oct 2023

Hey, Ayesha,

If you'd be using it only fully reclined, and ideally, with some reducer insert, good footmuff, or a soft cot inside, it can be used with a four-month-old baby. However, more as an occasional stroller, as the suspension and padding are not totally optimal for such small babies, this I would use as an only stroller from about 1 year, or at least from 6 months up.

About plane travel, this stroller will not be able to be taken on board as cabin luggage; it is too long after folding for that. You can, however, check it in or, with some airlines, take it as baby's luggage (stewards take it from you when boarding and return it when you're getting off the plane), but this option is not available with all airlines so you need to check with the airline of your choice. In nay case, the stroller is light and simple, so ok for travel, just not if you need it to fit the cabin luggage requirements.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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