  • as long as the terrain fits the child it should be fine... like a newborn- make sure your not running on rocks or making the stroller bounce around alot lol.. but once they are a few months old & have more control over their head you a few small bumps wont bother them..
    As long as you personally feel safe doing it & can keep your balance with the stroller go for it.. If the baby is younger than 2mo I would talk to your doc. to make sure your own body is ready for a run.

  • It depends if the stroller reclines or not. If baby can be reclining and stable, I don't see any reason you couldn't start right away. If baby's upright, he needs to be able to hold his head up by himself -- usually 6 months is safe.

  • I agree with Emily Susan. My jogger doesn't recline, so 6 months, but it does have an infant sling, so you can do it earlier with that. Just check on the jogger you have. If your LO is sitting up well, you're probably fine, but if not, then he/she needs to be reclined.
