Ever since my son’s christening, I’ve been focused on shedding all of those extra pounds that were put on during my pregnancy. So far it’s been slow and steady because my efforts have been focused primarily on my diet. I know that a workout routine will take my journey to the next level. Being the only adult home on weekdays from 7:00am-6:30pm, the gym is not a feasible option for me and I have zero energy by the time daddy comes home.
To make this work, I needed to come up with a way to burn calories while spending time with my children. Thankfully, babies love to stroll, to be out in the open air. Which is why every mom should have a jogging stroller like this. I was worried about how this would work with my oldest but she rode her bike alongside us and it worked out perfectly.
This stroller is also great on the boardwalk. With real tires and a suspension system, it’s a breeze pushing this along unpaved, uneven surfaces. And did I mention it’s compatible with baby carriers? No need to wait until your baby can sit up to use it.
Kolcraft made the J is for Jeep Jogger in my favorite color, too. The canopy also has a print along the edge to look like a zipper. Love.
Here it is shown without the carrier. With a weight limit of 60 pounds, this stroller could also be used for a larger child. Even Emma fit inside, though she is just too tall for it. Ryan is a bit too small for it. For now.
I also took this with us to the pool when Emma was in her swim class. I love the ventilation at the back, and having the ability to check on the baby through the mesh.
With the built-in iBaby® sound system, you can plug in your mp3 player and you have music for you and baby to enjoy. This jogger also has cup holders and storage for mom and dad by the handle, and a removable cup holder for the baby bar. I do wish it had a snack tray for baby, or at least an accessory for that. I’d also like it if I could separate the canopy from where it attaches so that I can move it around to shield baby from the sun. But all in all, this jogger is a winner.
