Hi,<br><br>
Anyone use a jogging stroller? I want to get back into running outside with the baby and since I can't wear the baby while running <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> I have a jogging stroller but I'm hearing conflicting information about when it's OK to run with the little one. He's nearly 6 months which I thought would make him the right age for me to run with him in the stroller, but my sister in law tells me it's a year. Bear in mind - I run VERY slowly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I always thought it was 6 months. I know we did that with our first. The big issue is head/neck support. Your stroller's instructions should say. If you don't have them, I would try the manufacturer's website or ask your ped.

I'll probably get flamed for this - but I've been running with my DS in the stroller since she was about 2.5 months old.<br><br>
We have the BOB Ironman Jogging Stroller with the infant seat attachments. It works very well, she falls asleep on nearly every run, and the whole set up is very secure.<br><br>
She doesn't jostle around since she's in her infant seat... she's coming up to the 6 month mark and I might start taking her running in the stroller proper - but I like being able to see her and having her be able to see me.<br><br>
Anyway, for our stroller, without attachments, the recommended age is 6 months, so I'm sure you're fine... but I would base this on your LO's head control, ability to be happy while not looking at you, et cetera.
