Parent facing travel stroller from newborn
9

sophie2022 · 12/01/2022 08:09

Hello! I'm looking for recommendations on the best parent facing travel stroller suitable for my two month old. We will be travelling to Spain for two weeks.

Must haves:

  • Parent facing option
  • Suitable from newborn without extra attatchments
  • Reasonably compact for air travel

    Bonus:
  • Reasonably priced
  • Compact enough to fit in airplane overhead luggage compartment

    From my research I think the baby zen yo-yo with newborn pack ticks all of our boxes except the price tag. As this will not be our main travel system looking for something similar at a lower price point. Any tips or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated Smile

I’m not sure how expensive the zen yo-yo is. Is this just as bad for price?

It does seem £££s. There did used to be cheaper patent facing strollers. Not sure what happened.

Thank you for your response! The Babyzen YoYo pack we would need comes in at around £550-£600, so on the pricey end.

This Cybex stroller had also caught my eye but on the Cybex website it says only suitable from newborn with an extra bassinet attachment which wouldn't be ideal for us travelling. Have contacted Cybex to confirm as online retailers seem to say it's ready to go from newborn.

Look for a YoYo second hand maybe?

Thank you - yes that is definitely an option. I was hoping I could get something new based on any recommendations at the second hand retail price of the YoYo (Still £300-£400 used)

You can use the babyzen with car seat for younger child if your just using for 2 weeks travel. From about 4 months I would be happy using the main seat in it. That would save a lot on the newborn pack extra, especially as not main pram.

Ds used the babyzen from about 7months as travel buggy, and it’s fine just forward facing. So easy to use. His main pram was still parent facing at that point but he didn’t seem bothered.
Any that face parent can’t be as small due to how they fold tbh.

Is hiring the yo-yo and bassinet set an option for you? Plenty of companies offer hire options for just this sort of thing Smile

Uppababy Minu with the bassinet is good

Buy the yoyo new and get the newborn pack second hand ?, the whole newborn pack materials are washable so will be clean etc.
