There’s no doubt about it — having a baby changes your life. New parents often find that they have to give up some aspects of their lifestyle and may have trouble fitting in all their activities. Jogging, however, is one activity that can be continued after baby is born. Thanks to baby jogging strollers Mom and Dad can fit in their exercise routine by combining their jogging with an outing with baby.
A baby jogging stroller is instantly recognizable by its 3-wheel design. This makes it suitable for jogging over a wide variety of terrain while providing a comfortable ride for your child.
There are 2 basic styles of jogging strollers – swivel front wheel or fixed front wheel. A fixed wheel is easier for jogging. Less effort is needed for steering the stroller and more attention can be paid to the road and your child. On the other hand, strollers with swivel front wheels are much easier to manoeuvre in tight spots. If you want to take your jogging stroller to the shopping mall a swivel front wheel is more convenient.
Many companies offer strollers that allow the swivel front wheel to be locked in position. This offer the best of both worlds – when jogging the wheel can be fixed and when manoeuvring is important the wheel can be unlocked.Jogging strollers are available in either single or double models. If you have twins or two toddlers the double models are ideal. Again there are 2 styles of double strollers – the seats can be positioned side-by-side or front and back. Some parents find that the front-back arrangement invites hair-pulling, kicking, and other bad behaviour so keep this in mind when choosing a stroller.
In either double or single strollers look for models with a reclining seat. If the seat fully reclines the stroller can be used with newborns although remember that you should not jog with children under the age of 6 months.Other features to look for are storage areas (either underseat trays or pockets), parking brakes, folding mechanisms, and detachable wheels.There are many jogging strollers to choose from, so consider your needs and you are sure to find a model that suits you and your child exactly!
