Which reversible travel stroller would you recommend?

Tamara • 13 Aug 2021


I am looking for a travel stroller from birth and parental facing.

I only found Cybex Melio, Cybex Eezy Twist 2, and Bugaboo Ant. Cybex Melio is quite big when folded and the other 2 are a bit heavier.

Do you know another brand or model? If not, which one would you recommend to me?

Hey, Tamara,

This is a hard one. Travel strollers are made so that they are for occasional, travel purposes, and so not the comfiest for normal use. And if you need a reversible one, that is something completely different and of course makes it heavier, more complicated. Read more about what I'm talking about reversible strollers here and do think about your stroller priorities.

There are not my different ones than those you already mentioned. The Bugaboo Ant is a true cabin-luggage, ultra-compact sized stroller, so for that, it is the best, but otherwise, the Ant's seat is small, narrow, not fully reclinable both ways, and overall not a great value for money.

TheCybex Melio is not a cabin-sized stroller. The Cybex Eezy S-Twist is probably your best bet if parent-facing is a priority, yes. So that is probably what I would go for.

OR get a Babyzen Yoyo and a newborn kit with which it could parent face. It also makes a lot of sense and it's sturdier and longer-lasting, compared to, for example, the Ant.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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