You might opt to bring your child’s usual stroller on holiday and this has its benefits in that you know your child will be comfortable in it and it spares you the expense of purchasing a new one. If your buggy is big and bulky and you will be travelling around a lot with a baby over 6 months then you might opt for either a lightweight stroller or a fold up stroller.
Some people opt to take a light weight stroller with them when travelling with toddlers as these fold up easily and are light. this is a great option where your child will not be in a stroller for too long and allows you to travel by bus, taxi and train easily and efficiently.
