I wouldn't recommend using any jogging stroller before 6 months of age because jogging strollers do not offer much head support for young babies but after the 6 month mark you're probably sleeping more and adjusted to a new baby and ready to run! I owned this instep safari jogging stroller from the time my son was 6 months old until the time that he outgrew it. It was a key component in helping me lose the baby weight because my son loved going faster then a typical stroller ride, he would kick back and just enjoy our three times weekly jog to the park. It always seemed to be a very comfortable and very safe ride for him which was crucial! This stroller was also easy to push. It's very lightweight and flows with my running rhythm very well. It was also very stable even on slightly bumpier roads in the neighborhood. I also loved all the storage components which made it easy to carry snacks for my son and water and my phone for me. I would highly recommend the instep safari jogging stroller to all new moms trying to get in shape again! It's a great way to enjoy nature and time with your new addition!
