Three Jogging Strollers for Active Parents and Their Napping Babies

Sure, there are hundreds of strollers out there that claim to have it all for the comfort and safety of your baby – but do they really? Especially when it comes to getting back to jogging and the normal workout routines that kept you healthy and active before baby?

I have talked to numerous jogging mothers, fathers, and even a few older siblings of newborn babies to almost 1-year olds, and they all expressed their interest in finding the best jogging strollers. Ones that would allow their little ones to nap while they jogged on.

Their wish has been my command, as I have found 3 that I declared the best of the best. These jogging strollers have everything a jogging parent or guardian could want, and then some.
And their names are:


BOB Revolution Flex Stroller

While perusing and researching from my starting list of jogging strollers, I noticed that the Flex Stroller is the one that really captured and held my attention.

Perhaps it was the streamlined, sleek appearance. Or maybe it was the swivel wheels that I knew would provide the optimum shock absorption to give your baby a smooth ride. Or it could have been the adjustable, secure 5-point safety harness system that keeps your kiddo safe and snug. But maybe…just maybe… it was all of those things.


Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller

In my humble opinion – jogging strollers are essential to getting your body back after baby. Why? Because they are a great bonding experience that you and your youngster can look forward to.

Sure, you can get exercise anytime, anywhere – but stand-alone Yoga and kickboxing home DVDs rarely give you the opportunity to take a stroll with the fruit of your arduous 9-month discomfort. This one is especially nifty, convenient, and perfect for Moms and Dads with getting in shape on their must-do list.


Jeep Adventure Jogging Stroller

Wow! So – this amazing jogging stroller is musical! It actually plays music for you and your baby to rock out to. Although, the music is likely soothing, classical, and more for the youngster’s benefits – but that’s okay because you have trusty Mp3s and a jog to start.

While your child is jamming to their tunes, you can run, hike, and exercise to your heart’s content. Their stroller also includes a swivel lock for uphill walks, 2 cup holders for your hydrating bottles of post-exercise water, and a 5-point safety harness to keep your baby secure and comfortable.

3 Double Stroller Brands You Can Count On

As a parent, nanny, or guardian – the one thing you need to be able to count on when it comes to brands for babies is dependability. If a brand has a reputation of being less-than dependable or less-than reliable, then it’s a no go.  While there are hundreds of brands out there, very few are reputable enough to match a dedicated parent’s criticisms and expectations.

With that in mind, I set out on a research journey to find the 3 among the best double strollers – each by a different, unique, reputable brand – and I did it.

The following trio of notable, awesome brand names are best known for their amazing, reliable, and secure double strollers.


Baby Jogger City Mini Double Stroller

In an array of varying bold colors, these double strollers are super-cute and convenient for those with multiple kiddos to look after. The seating is side-by-side – perfect for those inevitable poking wars that youngsters seem to get into. And there are peek-a-boo windows on the side that allows curious kids to look at their surroundings. However, a canopy covers the tops in a low-sitting position, keeping the biggest portion of the sunshine at bay.

In addition, Baby Jogger City uses super-padding to provide comfort and coziness in every position that the seat can recline.


Combi Fold N Go Double Stroller

Truth be told – the Fold N Go Double Stroller reminds me of something I would see on an awesome re-run episode of the old Addams Family television series. It is decked in a canopy of pure, midnight black, giving each stroller a mysterious air that is sure to lend a bit of mischief to your young’uns.

However, the amenities and benefits are top-notch, as each of these strollers are outfitted with padding, self-standing fold mechanisms, 5-point safety harnesses, and a convenient storage basket.


Kinderwagon Hop Double Child Stroller

At first, I perused and researched this double stroller because the brand name was adorable. Kinderwagon – so cute! But then I discovered all of the amazing amenities and benefits of strolling along with one of these.

Instead of placing kiddos side-by-side, these double strollers stack them like a convenient, cozy, double-decker bus – only not on top of each other. One youngster can be in back, while the other is in front, and all you have to worry about is the usual hair-pulling and seat-kicking.

Otherwise, the actual stroller is a fantastic investment.

The 3 Best Travel Systems for Baby’s Day Out - 2015 Top Picks

In my motherly opinion, the baby travel systems to take a serious look at are those that give the utmost comfort and relaxation to my youngster – and I wholeheartedly believe other parents would agree.

Babies deserve the best when it comes to what soothes them, and the best baby is a happy, stress-free baby.

There are hundreds of brands who claim to have the best travel systems, but in all honesty, very few deliver. However, I have found, researched, and handpicked 3 brands with amazing travel systems that actually live up to the hype of their popularity.

Those 3 awe-inspiring baby travel systems are:


BOB Motion Travel System

Designed to be simpler, easier, and nicer for parents, babysitters, and general guardians, these travel systems are perfect for long road trips or on-the-go short trips.

The car seats are comfortable and accommodating to newborns, while the stroller is perfect for when your kiddo begins to grow. Both of these attributes combine to make a single car seat/stroller combo, and they offer optimum safety with 5-point harnesses and the latest, most secure safety features.

Your baby is guaranteed to be cruising in style!


Safety 1st Saunter Travel System

I love the name of this baby travel system because sometimes new parents simply want to SAUNTER along, allowing their youngster to get all their energy and curiosity out while taking a leisurely stroll. Sometimes it is the only way to get a baby to sleep at night, which means this travel system is a little blessing.

There are no extra parts to be concerned with, and the parts that do attach are easy to connect with a simple click. Additionally, where comfort is concerned, the stroller and car seat combine, but the stroller can hold 50-pounds – whereas, the car seat can hold infant sizes up to 22 pounds.


Evenflo JourneyLite Embrace Travel System

Evenflo is one of those brands that seems to have been around forever, and they have proved their worth with baby products – over and over again. Their travel system in particular is sleek, stylish, and super-cool with an ultra-padded seat in the stroller, and foam-lined, cloth-covered everything in the car seat. These two aspects click together easily to make a single travel system for long or short on-the-go occasions, and lockable swivel wheels ensure uphill battles don’t have to be such a battle anymore.

Plus, there are 2 awesome, bold, beautiful designs and colors to choose from.

The 3 Most Comfortable Baby Stroller Options in 2015

Congratulations to you and yours on the birth of your little bundle of joy! Babies are oh-so fickle when it comes to comfort because every little discomfort is literally the worst kind of discomfort that they have ever felt. Therefore, extra padding and the ability to recline are must-haves for a brand to achieve a notable nod from our short list of the best baby strollers.

The following baby strollers are designed to be the most comfortable that a baby could ask for – if a baby could ask. Their one-handed folding designs and lightweight, convenient carry-all systems make them winners on the lists of parents, too.

My 3 picks are:


Stokke Xplory Baby Stroller

These baby strollers are my favorite because they are accommodating to newborns. Instead of toting your kiddo around in a pack on your back, you can fit your wee bundle-of-baby onto a comfortable, padded seat that reclines ever-so slightly.

Parents are given the option of grasping the handlebar in a variety of ways, for the sake of comfort and personal preference. And you can flip the backward facing ‘car-style seat’ to face forward as the baby gets older and bigger.


Graco LiteRider Classic Connect Stroller

There are varying colors of these baby strollers, and each color has a unique name – which makes them super-cool in my book. However, that isn’t their biggest must-have amenity.

These strollers have several beloved benefits that make them top-notch in the baby product market. For example, an extra-large basket accommodates everything your kiddo needs in a stow-away compartment, and parents get their own snacking and drink tray up top. Plus, the wheels are smooth-rolling – so, if your baby is napping while on their leisurely stroll, pavement or ground bumps are absorbed to keep your youngster sleeping peacefully.


The First Years Jet Stroller

These strollers are durable, reliable, lightweight, and inexpensive – all things that make a great first impression on prospective buyers who also happen to be doting parents to newborns or toddlers.

In addition to being adorable and versatile, each of the City Chic strollers are multi-positional to provide the utmost comfort for your little lady or gentleman.

A 5-point safety harness snaps across their lap and chest easily, keeping baby secure at all times, and the smooth-rolling wheels ensure maximum shock absorption. Plus, these strollers conveniently, easily fold away into compact units for quick, simple storage, anywhere.
