Pushchairs for Toddlers over 15kg

Do you have a toddler that is under 3 years old but weighs over 15kg? Or are you expecting a big baby or just searching for pushchairs for toddlers over 15kg?

Below is a comparison table for pushchairs for heavy toddlers over 15kg as well as  the latest buggies and travel systems that are suitable for babies of different weights.

For many of the new pushchairs released in the market today, the maximum weight limit for babies and toddlers is 15kg – that is often for three to three-and-a-half years old toddlers. When you go on vacation however and have a long walk, toddlers can easily get tired and ask to be pushed. Therein lies the dilemma – they are too heavy to be carried and often too heavy for the pushchair you own.

Especially now that NHS figures indicate that toddlers today now weigh more than previous years, it is not a huge surprise that parents are searching for pushchairs for toddlers over 15kg and heavier weights.

Below is a detailed comparison table of popular models that allow increasing weight limits.
