In the past, there had been this notion that the heavier the stroller, the safer it was. We now know that is not true today. In fact, most moms love a lightweight stroller, especially one that easily folds and unfolds in seconds using one hand. It is a lifesaver when you're in the mall, park or traveling abroad, and it doesn't take up so much space. And, thanks to technology, the weight doesn't sacrifice your baby's safety.
The good news is you will probably find a stroller to fit your budget. Here are 10 lightweight strollers, no more than 5.5 kg in weight each, favored by moms for their safety, comfort, and style, and ranked according to affordability.
This basic travel stroller for babies from 6 months up to toddler at 15 kg does not recline, but it has a carry-on strap for easy mobility. It should be noted that of all the travel strollers we checked it is the easiest to fold (you can do it in in three seconds).
Available at selected department stores nationwide
