what can you reccommend, i need a umbrella stroller that reclines. We are going on a 2 week holiday in Jan to mexico and need something light weight and compact but still good for my son. He will be 14.5 months at the time and the ones i have read about either don't recline, or only recline like a inch or two??? not really worth it then. Or they are really narrow and babies are either uncomfortable in it or out grow it fast. help....... I have been using my evenflo journey and love it but it's so large and heavy, not ideal on a plane, etc. do you have a good oneto suggest?

I would take the one you already have, just check it at the gate. That is what I did when I went to Hawaii in Sept.

i thoug of that but with a charter company from canada it is all considered " checked luggage" and it all goes against your weight allowance. We are only allowed 20kg max each and we have to bring a pack and play as well, they both are pretty heavy, then we have to pack all his things, toys, food, clothes, diapers and wipes plus all my stuff and hubby as we are going for 2 weeks. SO i fiured we would just buy a cheaper lightweight stroller that we will still be able to use for the next few years or we can leave it at the grandparents for times we are there.

My friend just told me about the ONLY umbrella stroller she could find out there that reclined a good bit and was light weight. I think it's made by McClaren? I know the companies name starts w/ an M...maybe McCallen? Anyway, it's a bit pricey, but she had the same problem when they went away and the umbrella stroller they had didn't recline enough. They're son couldn't nap while they were walking around, and got uncomfortable easily. Hope that helps

We have a really lightweight Graco Stroller (we use it for the zoo or crowded places and traveling)...It is only 14 lbs I think. My MIL has a Combi stroller that is pretty nice and only 12lbs or so. We have to take a puddle jumper when we go to the inlaws condo so we can only bring lightweight stuff. And the Combi reclines flat and the Graco reclines almost flat. Both were purchased at Babies r us.

thanks a bunch! i wanted something that fold flat too like a umbrella, do either of those do that?

 

DB - October 29

They do fold up pretty tight, not like a full size stroller. I will look up the names real quick for you.

if he's 14.5 month why do you need one that reclines? My almost 7 month old uses a really light weight, none reclinable, fold up, $20 umbrella whenever we're shoping or walking. We just got it a few weeks ago and she does great in it. She sleeps just fine in it as well. I'll put a blanket next to her so that her head doesn't fall over too much to be uncomfortable, and she does fine. She likes it and she seems completly happy and comfortable in it. So, is there a reason you couldn't use one of those for your vacation since they are supper light and easy to carry around?

Hi Lin: I am in the same situation..I am going to India alone with dd and the travel alone is 18 hours...She will be 9 1/2 months by then and I am already lost as to how I will handle the situation..Anyways, I was also looking for umbrella stroller that reclines and is of less weight and I foung the JEEP All weather RECLINING stroller For $33.00...The reviews for it is very good...So I have ordered in thru Walmart..Have not received it yet.It weighs aby=t 14 pounds I guess....Just have a look at it too..I liked the Chicco one too and it weighed 10 pounds and reclines, and it had a better look that jeep, and I almost ordered it, but the review said it dosent recline that much...

well you are lucky to have a good easy sleeper! MY ds has never been a great napper especially when we are out. If he does finally fall asleep and he's upright it's a 45 min nap max! If i lie him down it's closer to 1 hr and sometimes more. Then he's not cranky when he wakes up, and being on holidays, i really don't nned a cranky overtired baby from not napping right.

ya i looked at that one and the reviews that i found people were complaining on how it only reclined about a inch or two, not really enough to make a difference. I need one that reclines back more so he is more of in a liying position, i know it won't be like our big bulky one but he's such a picky sleeper. I am going to drive myself crazy worrying about wondering how he is going to sleep there...ahhh.. only if i had a easy sleeper that didn't care where they were or what they are in.

Hi: I bought a MacLaren stroller for my son, and I really like it. It reclines back pretty far, and folds up easily. I bought the Techno XT, which you can get at BabiesRus, but I bought it on Ebay for so much cheaper and it was brand new. I think an easy to use stroller is worth the investment, and we don't have a lot of extra cash here, but I use mine all the time and it had to be comfortable to use. Good luck.
