 Im gonna say 3,but really its hard because I had my 2nd when my first was just 2 and a half so we upgarded to a sit n stand,which at 4 he still uses but if we just take the single stroller he walks.

It depends what you are doing and how far you are going.  We walk nearly everyday, normally b/w 2-4miles.  That is definately too long for most 4yr olds and going preschooler pace doesn't provide a good work out for mom.

My 4 1/2 year old still likes to ride in the stroller.  When I am out running errands it is easier for her to ride rather than walk.  Things get done a lot faster.  She knows that when this baby is born it is no longer an option for her to ride in the stroller.

yeah it really depends on the situation... but I do hate seeing a kid that is obviously too big as in they don't fit in a stroller.. im like really?? and we wonder why we have an obisity issue!! I make my 3 year old walk as much as possiable.. she likes walking which helps but when I'm doing my run I obvously throw her in the jogger because well like pp said if your exercising you have to do something with them lol
