When kids are infants and toddlers strollers are an amazing tool to give them a place to nap, relax and contained! But as they grow, most strollers only go to 30 – 45 lbs. Even the shopping carts in most grocery stores have a weight limit of 35 lbs.
A few of the many battles kids with Cystic Fibrosis face can be helped if they had a stroller well into pre school & school ages. From becoming winded during outings, like zoos or theme parks, to needing a break from the heat. I have been on the hut for a better stroller for little miss and wanted to share some of my top picks for strollers that have a weight limit of 50 lbs to 150 lbs.
Let me know in the comments if you have an tried and true high weight limit strollers.
With a weight limit of 55 lbs. the UPPAbaby G-Luxe Stroller is great for kids 4 – 6 years old. I love that is light, (10 lbs) so it can be easily carried when not in use. It has the same design as an umbrella stroller but the sturdy frame to hold a larger child.
The next on my list has a weight limit of 65 lbs. The Baby Jogger Mini GT is another light stroller, that can be easily folded for carrying when not in use. While it is 22.5 lbs. it folds up into a compact bundle so you can carry it with one hand. This stroller does have a higher price tag, but if you are planning to use it from birth to school age it will be worth the investment.
Moving up to a 75 lbs weight limit, the Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller folds slight larger than the previous option but still has the versatility to carry when not in use. It weights about 25 lbs, and is able to be used for children starting at 3 months of age! I love the long term investment for these baby necessities.
Unfortunately it is hard to find a stroller that will accommodate a child larger than 75 lbs. I was able to find a few wagons that folds up compact for easy pulling when not in use.
This Radio Flyer Wagon has a weight limit of 150 lbs, and can be used as a bench or transportation. The manufacture recommends 1 – 5 years old but depending on the child it would fit one older kid so they could get a quick rest.
Another 150 lbs weight limit wagon is the Creative Outdoor Distributor Push Pull Wagon for Kids. It folds up to a compact 32 lbs. and would be able to fit an older child comfortable by themselves. It comes in a few colors and could be used hauling more than children once the child aged out of it.
Often times we see people criticizing parents that utilize strollers for their school aged children, but don’t let that deter you from providing your child with a much needed space to rest.
