Q&A with The Baby Planners!
Our perezciouse reader Erin is a new mommy that LOVES to run. She asks perezito's baby experts Ellie and Melissa if there is a that stroller would let her exercise and take her 9-month-old son along for the ride.
The Baby Planners Aswer:
And first of all, you’re smart to have waited to make this purchase. Generally speaking, baby should not be joining you for a jog or run until around 6 months old when they have full head and neck control. Since this won’t be your go to the mall stroller, you should look for a jogging stroller with these features:
3 wheeled aerodynamic design with a front swivel wheel that locks for stability when running or on rough terrain.
A hand break and safety strap for your wrist to avoid runaway stroller. A five point padded harness to keep baby comfy and safe, and a large canopy for a shady baby.
A basket for incidentals: Sunblock? Check. Wipes? Can’t leave home without ‘em. Bottles? Of course! A cup holder for water and you’re good to go. Also look for a stroller with a large viewing window so you can keep one eye on baby, and the other on the finish line.
