Jogging Strollers

In an earlier post, I talked about baby car seats and that they can combine into strollers for easy use. Some can be purchased as a package. But what if you just want a stroller? Maybe your baby is no longer a baby and you want to take longer strolls. (See Related: Baby Strollers and Car Seats; Did you know they combine?)

While they make plenty of 4-wheeled strollers that are great, in this post, I’ll be touching on just the 3-wheeled ones more specific for jogging. (Summer is coming, people love to get outdoors!)

Below are two of the top rated jogging strollers of 2018.

Costzon Baby Jogging Stroller

The Costzon jogging stroller comes with 2 cup holders and a closing tray compartment that can hold your phone, keys, or whatever smaller item you need to take with you on your walk.

It also has a lockable front wheel. This is important, some strollers have a free moving front wheel, and that can sometimes make you lose a little control. A lockable wheel makes the stroller sturdier. Continue reading “Jogging Strollers”

Cybex Sirona M – 2018 Best Convertible Car Seat

We’re at that time of year, awards season. There is an award for almost anything, and car seats are not excluded from that.

2018 Best Convertible Car Seat

The Cybex Sirona M with SensorSafe 2.0 has won at the Best of Baby for the Best Convertible Car Seat. This seat is nothing short of amazing!

It also won the 2018 Best of Baby Tech award for Safety. It is the first car seat to have a sensor and an app for your phone. The sensor is built into the chest clip of the harness.

What is SensorSafe?

The SensorSafe app is genius when it comes to the safety of your baby. It will alert you if the interior temperature of your vehicle is too hot,

or too cold. The backseat doesn’t feel like the front seat, and your baby can’t tell you yet if they are warm enough. This lets you know they are comfortable. Continue reading “Cybex Sirona M – 2018 Best Convertible Car Seat”

Car Seat Poncho – Winter Safety for your Child!

 

Being as it is currently 13 degrees below zero here today, I thought I would remind you about some winter car seat safety. It is NOT safe to put your baby or child in a big snow suit or puffy coat and then buckle them in their car seat. If a crash were to occur, your child would slide right out of their harness. But, it’s cold, you want to keep them warm, so what can you do?

Of course, you can put blankets on top of their harness, and put their coat on after unbuckling. But what if there was a simpler solution? Continue reading “Car Seat Poncho – Winter Safety for your Child!”
