Does anyone have the Saftety First Jogger Stroller, or any jogger stroller? When we got it, it had said on the box not to go jogging with an infant under 20lbs, ok, makes sense. However, in the inside instructions, it says not to even go walking with it till the baby is at least 6 months old. I had called their info line to inquire about this and the guy just said it must be how the seats are made. However, the rear facing seat goes back on a big incline - more so than the bouncy chair or swing. So I was thinking it had to do with head control? But it doesn't make too much sense? When did you use your stroller?<br>
I just want to use it for long walks outside since I can't really fit her in the sling with her snowsuit on, so I just carry her, and therefore can't go to far<br>
Thanks!

i have several jogging strollers. How big is your kiddo? will s/he slide out when she has the belt on? My concern would be the angle of incline of the seat.We ran with dd in the jogger at ~5 or 6 months. We used a towel for head support. And mostly went on paved roads.

She's 15lbs and just over 4 months. I don't even want to run- just a little walk. It does up over the shoulders and through the crotch- the 5 pt harness. I've never even sat her in it yet.

We have a BOB jogging stroller, which doesn't even recline very much, but with the 5-point harness we used it with ds at two months old for walks and such. With all the bundling during the winter, they don't move very much anyway!<br><br>

I know I had our son in one for walks before he was six months (I think he was about 3mos, actually). I got a gently-used Expedition (the BRUs brand) and used it almost exclusively until he got big enough to want to sit up and look around behind him. I find it much easier to push, although the cheaper strollers tend not to "track" very well - the front wheel will drift left or right, and you're constantly lifting it to go straight again. Still easier than a travel system stroller , though, particularly if you're just walking.

I think he would be fine since it reclines. The one we have doesn't, but our next one will for sure. Not ony for this reason, but so it will be more comfortable for my dc to sleep in it.
