Q: How Does the Harness Work?
A: A harness is the baby’s seatbelt. It is a restraint system that ensures your child doesn’t fall out, slip, or slide down the tandem.
It also makes sure that your baby does not climb out of the stroller when you are distracted. The best type of harness is the 5-point harness since it secures your infant at his or her shoulders, waist, and crotch.
All you need to do is to make sure that the buckles of your harness are easy enough for you to use but not easily opened by your child.
Moreover, the straps need to be adjustable to fit a growing toddler. So, to that effect, you might want to consider getting a harness that features padding to ensure your child is secure and comfortable.
Q: How Can One Use the City Mini Stroller with an Infant Car Seat?
A: You can quickly turn your City Mini Stroller into a travel system with one of Baby Jogger car seat adapters or prams. They possess car seat adapters that can fit into either the single or double strollers.
The City Mini Stroller, for example, features a latch that reclines to a near flat position to accommodate newborns. That means you can securely lay your baby in the fully reclined seat of the stroller without the use of a car seat adapter or bassinet.
However, you need to keep in mind that babies should have ample neck support when placed in the reclined seat of a stroller – you can use any number of neck supports sold at baby stores.
Q: How Old Should A Child Be Before You Go for a Run with Him/Her?
A: Most baby stroller and infant car seat organizations recommend that you consult with your pediatrician before starting your fitness journey alongside your baby. Every toddler is different, but typically a doctor will recommend that your little angel be six months old before you can go for a jog on smooth pavement, and 12 months old before jogging on trails, grass, gravel or uneven terrain.
As we have mentioned, this stroller is cumbersome, and the storage basket is small. Thus, if you want a better product, we recommend you try using the ‘Graco Click Connect Literider Stroller.’ You can also try the ‘Chicco KeyFit Caddy Stroller’ which is also quite perfect.
