Exercise enthusiasts have no fear - your love of the outdoors does not have to suffer with the arrival of your baby. There is a wide variety of fabulous jogging strollers out there that can accommodate everyone from weekend warriors to the daily dedicated. While tracking down a jogging stroller that best fits your exercise profile is important, it is equally essential that the stroller be designed with certain basic safety features.

Be on the lookout for a five-point harness that will prevent your little one from slipping in the seat and rear-wheel brakes that can prevent the stroller from folding or collapsing when in use. While you’ll find that many jogging manufactures say a baby can be in a stroller at eight weeks, our medical consultants all say that a baby should be at least six months old (eight months for off road riding), able to sit up on their own, and have some head support to withstand a potentially bumpy ride.

With so many stand-out jogging strollers and the 6 month lead time, have fun finding the one that best fits your exercise, style, and safety requirements… and let the race begin!

Choose the best jogger strollers that are perfect for weekend warriors or a daily jogger. These baby jogger strollers are designed for children six months and older and put a premium on safety so you can concentrate on your stride.
