Lightweight Pushchairs: Our At-A-Glance Guide

Pushing a heavy buggy round all day isnt anyones idea of fun, so why not opt for a lightweight alternative? Weve rounded up a great selection ndash; all which are under 8kg ndash; to make your life that little bit easier.

The key attraction is obvious ndash; theyre much easier to lift in and out of a car boot, up steps or on public transport than a heavier model. Theyre designed to be compact, both in use and when folded, taking up less hallway, bus/train aisle or boot space. They also tend to be cheaper than conventional pushchairs. Many parents buy a second lightweight pushchair to use on holidays, especially when theyre overseas.

A few are suitable from birth, but many dont lie flat or almost flat, which is vital for a newborns spine development and breathing. So, most can only be used from six or sometimes even 12 months.

Lighter pushchairs also often lack features new parents prioritise, as these add weight ndash; for example, the ability to add a carry cot, a car seat to make up a travel system or a reversible seat unit.

While they do tend to be basic, a lsquo;suitable from birth lightweight can be good if you have limited storage space, a small car or use public transport a lot and need something light and compact.

Ive got a newborn pram, but will I want to switch later on?

If youve bought a fully featured, heavier pram, you might start to find it cumbersome. For older babies and toddlers, the extra features, such as a travel system capability, could become obsolete. When babies are between six and 12 months, many parents switch to a lighter model or buy one as a second pushchair for holidays and days out.

If you no longer need a fully reclining seat because your little one is older, you probably will still want your child to nap in his buggy, so look for a seat that reclines at least a little.

An under-seat basket and seat-back pockets are handy for nappies and wipes. Theres unlikely to be as much storage as on a larger model, so check its sufficient for your needs.

Being able to add a car seat to make up a travel system can be useful, as you minimise disturbing a sleeping baby. Some lightweights offer this if you buy a compatible Group 0+ car seat. This is suitable up until your baby is age one.

The style of lightweight pushchair you need is influenced by how and where youll use it. Many super-light buggies have small, plastic wheels which can struggle on anything other than pavements. If you live in a rural area or go on frequent country or beach walks, look for larger wheels to cushion your babys ride and make pushing easier.

Being able to fix the front wheels into position, rather than letting them swivel, will help on gravel and grass.

For public transport, a quick, easy-to-use folding mechanism is vital. Test this out. You might well be holding your baby while you collapse the pushchair or get it set up again, so ideally youll want to manage it one-handed.

Consider whats included when comparing models and prices ndash; is there a rain cover (essential) and foot muff to keep little toes cosy on cold days? You can buy universal versions of these separately, but it will add to the cost.
