Choosing a stroller takes careful thought and consideration. After all, you trust a stroller with your baby’s safety. We know what an important purchase this is, so we researched some of the most popular models on the market to make your decision less overwhelming.
Baby Jogger, despite its name, doesn’t exclusively design strollers for jogging. Most of the brand’s models focus on convenience and versatility, offering one-handed folding, reclining seats and the ability to function as a travel system (with a separately purchased car seat adapter) for infants.
The Baby Jogger City Mini GT — which tops our list of the best Baby Jogger strollers — is a traditional stroller featuring thick wheels and suspension for a smooth ride. But if you’re looking for a model that can keep up with your active lifestyle, the Baby Jogger Summit X3 is a sturdy choice for jogging. It’s worth noting that you’ll have to purchase trays, cup holders and other accessories separately for whichever model you choose.
