Can the Babyzen YOYO be parent-facing?
No, the Babyzen YOYO2 stroller seat cannot be parent-facing when using the 6+ seat fabrics.
However, all newborn accessories for the Babyzen YOYO2 will allow your baby to face you when strolling.
You can use the Babyzen YOYO2 for an infant by attaching one of these accessories:
- Bassinet, a lie-flat option with hard bottom that can also be used on the floor
- 0+ Newborn Pack, a soft, lie-flat option that cannot be used off the stroller but can fold when attached to the stroller
- Car seat adapters that attach compatible car seats from Nuna, Maxi-Cosi, Cybex or Clek
When using the Babyzen YOYO2 6+ complete stroller, your child will always face forward. The 6+ setting is intended for use from 6 months of age and up, supporting a toddler up to a weight of 48.5 pounds. You'll still be able to see your toddler while strolling, thanks to a clear peekaboo window built into the stroller canopy!
