Baby Jogging Stroller | Buying Baby Strollers
When you buy a baby running stroller, the first thing you must keep in mind is your baby’s safety.
Secondly, when you take your baby out, you need to carry changing bag, feeding bottles etc., so your baby stroller should be sturdy and have enough space to carry a bag or two and also plenty of storage space.
Thirdly, storage is something you need to consider as you will need to store your baby running stroller in the house, on a train or in a car, so go for an easy to fold and carry one. It should also be lightweight as if you buy a bulky baby stroller, later on it will give you problems.
To expand a bit, it may sound obvious, but the baby stroller should have a safety belt to secure the baby in place so that the baby doesn’t slip out (do make sure you use it!). The baby running stroller should have a good breaking system to control the movement on slopes and, as a safety mechanism; a stroller should also have a leash in case of a brake failure.
Different models are available on the market. When selecting a model you should keep in mind the weight and age of your child. A running stroller should be able to minimize the bumps and vibrations for your child and you must take the stroller for a test run before deciding on one particular model. The baby running stroller should give the child a smooth ride.
Go for a double stroller for infant and toddler model where the front wheel will lock for jogging as this is easier, but for other times a swivel wheel may be easier. Hence it is suggested a wheel that will just lock when required is a useful feature. Also get an aluminium frame as these are lighter in weight for when you need to carry the stroller and the wheels should be larger since it gives least resistance when maneuvering. Some people prefer a running stroller with larger front wheel but this will be down to personal preference.
