One of the greatest innovations in stroller design in recent years is the travel system. These all-in-one systems have integrated car seats, strollers, and (sometimes) bassinets, which allow you to move your baby easily from car to stroller and back again.
The jogging stroller manufacturers have not missed this great design and parents are now able to buy a jogging stroller car seat for their infant.
The car seat in these travel systems is attached to a base which is permanently installed in the rear car seat.
The car seat (baby and all) can be attached to the base with a minimum of fuss and when you arrive at your destination it can be taken out of the car and placed on the stroller – all without waking baby!
Several jogging stroller manufacturers have models that can accommodate popular brands of car seats. This is a logical step to the jogging stroller as all-purpose stroller – meaning that parents need only buy one stroller for all their needs.
Although it is not advised to expose small babies to the jostling motion of jogging, jogging strollers can still be used for regular walks until your baby is old enough to support her head. After the age of 6 months parents can safely take baby with them on their regular jog.
Parents who buy a jogging stroller car seat right at the start can save the expense of buying two types of stroller. If you have (or are expecting) a new baby, look for jogging strollers that have this feature.
It’s worthwhile to get the best jogging stroller you can afford. You can expect to get almost 3 years of use from it for each child, and you child will enjoy these outing all the more if he or she is comfortable and secure.
Jogging strollers should have a 5-point harness system, a hand brake for controlling the stroller when jogging, a parking brake, and a tether strap. Other features that make the stroller more convenient include storage pockets for keys, cell phones, and toys.
