My friend has a baby stroller by Jeep and it looks really strong and sturdy compared to most other strollers i’ve seen. I havent done much research on strollers yet but I’ll be looking into the ones by Jeep to see if it they have good reviews.

We have the City Mini, but honestly, we’ve mainly just used the infant seat + snap and go. We use the City Mini when we’re walking from home or taking the metro or something, but pretty much anytime we drive somewhere, it’s easier to just put the car seat in the Snap and Go. I do like the City Mini, it folds up really small and really easily. I wouldn’t, however, recommend it for anyone over 6 ft. tall (handles aren’t adjustable, and Darling Husband at 5’11” still kinda wishes they were) or anyone who is going to need to carry a bunch of stuff in the stroller (it’s really hard to get to the small storage area under the seat- I can’t really fit my big diaper bag in there).

Interesting! My husband is 6′-3″ so that’s def something to consider. I don’t know how tall you are but I’m average at 5′-5″ do you think getting something geared towards tall people would make it hard for you if you’re average height?

We just have a Graco travel system, but I’m not sure we used the stroller enough to even justify that purchase. I really prefer baby carrying over the stroller, so we rarely use the it… Of course, we don’t jog with Addie (we have a treadmill at home) and we don’t live in a city. 🙂 Our experience really makes me reconsider whether we want to get a double stroller for #2, or not. Double strollers (especially lightweight ones), are much more expensive, and idk that we’d even use it.

@BabyBoecksMom: That’s really funny that they have a website specifically for tall babies and parents! I never would have thought of that, but clearly height is a definite issue for strollers. The jogger that we’re looking at isn’t recommended for people much shorter than me (5’5″) b/c it’s sunshade is pretty high, so you wouldn’t be able to see over it very well.

@bells: I was reading that the Jeep Limited Urban All-Terrain stroller has GREAT reviews. It is a three-wheel though not exactly designed for jogging. You can lock the front wheel, and some people in the reviews said they used it for jogging and it was fine, but just know that’s not it’s purpose. I am not a good runner, so I think it could work for me (I want to run after the baby comes to lose weight, but I’ve never been a runner, so we’ll see). I may just have hubby watch baby while I run anyway 😉
Anyway, I think I decided I will register for that one, because at $150 there is a chance someone would buy it for me, but if not, we can afford it. Great reviews for the price!

@miss-spunkin: Yeah I may end up going with Jeep stroller too, I like the Limited Urban All-Terrain stroller and I’m not a runner either so I dont that its not specifically for jogging.

We registered for the Jeep Liberty stroller too- it was my husband’s only request, and with such good reviews, no problem for me to say yes! It just got bought off of our registry, so now my husband has a stroller to match his Jeep 😉
It fits our car seat/carrier (Chicco), and can handle outdoor trails and going on dirt (we are definitely not joggers, but avid hikers).
We still have a few months till we get to use it, but I’m pretty excited to have this stuff taken care of. One of my husband’s co-workers has one and could not stop talking about how much he loves it. Also I ran into a couple at Ikea that had one, and they absolutley LOVE theirs. Their son is big enough that they were getting him the Jeep bike with training wheels for his birthday- Dad was soooo excited to tell us about it in the checkout line.
Funny that I found my car (Subaru Forester) and stroller by talking to people as I have been leaving Ikea… must go back to learn more 😉
