Traditionally parents would first choose their main pushchair and later consider a portable, lightweight umbrella stroller to transport their toddler on holidays and days out. Nowadays the modern compact stroller is seen as more of an essential buy that can even replace the need for a pushchair, especially for city dwelling parents. This is because many compact pushchairs can be used from birth with a carrycot accessory and a compact and lightweight design offers many benefits.

Here are five reasons a compact stroller will help in your daily life as a parent:

Comfort for baby

When little legs are tired or it’s nap time on-the-go, a compact stroller with a recline feature and leg rests will enable you to keep moving while your child has a nap in comfort.

Cost saving

Compact strollers can be more affordable than many premium pushchair packages, so you can have your wheels without paying over the odds.

Compact convenience

When you’re travelling on buses, tubes and airlines it’s a great benefit to be able to fold and carry your stroller keeping it with you in a more manageable way. It will also fit nicely into small car boots and gives you room for shopping or baby essentials. In the home, a fold-away stroller is ideal to avoid blocking entrances and for getting up and down stairs.
