Any stroller experts? Compact with 50+ lb weight limit

DD has outgrown her Chicco Liteway. I'm trying to find another compact stroller with a high weight limit. She is only 14 months so I'd like to make sure she has time to grow into it. She is 40 lbs now. Any suggestions?

I'm thinking about the MacLaren Quest. If anyone has one, reviews are welcome!

Both Uppa strollers go up to 50 pounds. They are nice and lightweight and easy to use. I got the Glite as I didn't need the recline.

A 40 lb 14 month old girl? That just seems nuts...my DS is way up there on the % charts and he is only 30/31 lbs and 36" tall. He's about to turn 2. Are you sure that is accurate?

i thought it was a typo but if so i couldnt see why she would be asking about a 50 lbs stroller. all my kids were about 16 lbs at 14 months.

My DD was 16 lbs at 2 months.

It's definitely not a typo, and I'm certain that's accurate...she's 40 lbs. My biceps can attest to that

I went with the Maclaren quest and really like it so far. Thanks everyone!

Dd was 14lbs at 2 months. she had major rolls. But around 18 months she started slendering down. And now at 22 months she's 26lbs.

Glad you found a stroller you like

Was she an early crawler? Or early compared to my DD...she didn't start crawling til 11 months, and that's about when she stopped chunking up. She still gained a lb until she started walking a month later, and now she's been coasting at 39-40 lbs for the last couple months
