The UPPAbaby Cruz stroller can be used from 3 months up to 50 pounds, with newborn options sold separately including a bassinet, infant car seat, or Snugseat insert.
Many children reach 50 pounds sometime between 5 and 7 years of age, but may no longer need a stroller sooner depending on their height and level of activity, with 50 pounds listed as the maximum weight capacity of the Cruz V2 stroller seat.
At what age can I begin to use the Cruz for my child?
While on its own the Cruz V2 stroller cannot support a newborn, most parents start by using the stroller with a compatible infant car seat, such as the UPPAbaby Mesa V2 or Mesa Max infant car seats that fit the Cruz without adapters:
Another newborn option for the Cruz include the UPPAbaby Bassinet, which also fits the Vista V2, Ridge, and Minu V2, and which creates a lay-flat space that is sleep safe for your baby.
For parents who don't wish to purchase a bassinet and are using an all-in-one car seat instead of an infant car seat, the Cruz V2 offers a unique solution to use it from day one: the UPPABaby Infant Snugseat which lets you use the fully reclined toddler seat with a newborn by providing additional padding and a proper newborn position.
Can I use the UPPAbaby Cruz V2 as a double?
If you've purchased the Cruz for your first child and your family grows, the Cruz can accommodate an infant and an older, more active, toddler. The Cruz cannot function as a double stroller, unlike its larger counterpart the UPPAbaby Vista, though it has the option to purchase a standing board that clips onto the back of the frame for an older toddler to stand on.
This is ideal if your toddler is active but likes a place to rest their feet during long outings, but you might want to consider the UPPAbaby Vista V2 if you have two under 3 years old that need a place to sit and be secured in the stroller seats.
