Running Tips with Baby

Last month I got to check out some of the strollers in Bugaboo's new line up (they've teamed up with Diesel Denim for a second time) and whether you're on the hunt for your baby registry or wanting to upgrade from your current stroller, this brand offers a variety of strollers & accessories so they can be customized and upgraded to suit what you're looking for. I've been sharing a little bit about fitness options I've been trying out (see my Yoga Tips for Moms post here) and if you're looking for a jogging stroller, the new Bugaboo Runner is a great option to try out. I really like that you can position the seat to face you or outward, since I haven't seen another jogging stroller that offers this option; I love that you can watch your little one while you run instead of having to stop & check on them, plus it makes for really cute exercise entertainment. If running with your little one is something you like to do or want to try, see below for some tips from Bugaboo for safely running with baby. Happy jogging!


1."You must be this tall to ride"  
Jogging with your baby that is nine months or younger can be unsafe. With only a handful of month’s experience, motoring around the park before motor skills are developed will leave your baby overwhelmed and could cause physical injury.

2. Plan your route  
Before taking your child on his or her first adventure, make sure the route you take is safe with no dangers or possible road blocks. This way, it’ll make your first jog together fun and stress free!

3. Slow and steady wins the race 
Or at least, wins the experience. Always remember that your jog is not a race, and you should pace yourself a little slower than usual. This will avoid turbulence and the wind ruining your baby’s hair! 

4. Smart packing 
With using the Bugaboo Bag to store things like diapers, snacks, water and toys to entertain your baby, packing necessities will help you out in the long run- or short run if this is your first time.

 5. Have a destination 
It’s good to have a place where you and your baby can hang out after. Having your jog lead to a park or field for your baby to stretch will be a refreshing change for him or her, and also a relaxing moment for yourself.

6. “Two is a crowd and three is a party” 
Having a friend go with your or another active mom or dad will help encourage you to stick with your schedule. Running with others raises endurance and also gives the opportunity to discuss your favorite Bugaboo stroller.

7. Look good, feel good 
Throwing a pair of sunglasses on you and your baby will help block the sunlight and glare from the hot pavement and protect your eyes. Also, it will make you both look very cool.

8. Lock the front wheel 
Most strollers have an adjustment where the front wheel can be locked. Before beginning your jog, make sure the front wheel is locked so it doesn’t turn on a dime and create an accident.

9. Like at a party, make sure all eyes are on you 
Although now that you have your sunglasses on and you’re running with a top of the line Bugaboo stroller, people still might not notice you. Make sure that everyone around you sees that you’re there. Sometimes it’s assumed that people see you when they actually don’t, which could result in a collision.

10. Have fun! 
Some people view jogging as a chore or think that exercise is a lot of effort. As long as you maintain a positive mindset and stay active because YOU want to, you and your baby will get the most out of exploring the world around you.

About the Bugaboo by Diesel Denim Collection
This is the second Bugaboo by Diesel collection. Bugaboo and Diesel have bundled their creative and rebellious spirit to design a collection that takes the iconic lifestyle brand’s DNA as a starting point: Denim. Two new strollers are taking centre stage with a complete makeover for the all-terrain stroller, the Bugaboo Buffalo, and a Tailored Fabric Set for the convertible stroller, the Bugaboo Donkey. The military-inspired Bugaboo by Diesel Cameleon from the first collection will also remain available in store. 
Accessories make the difference, so a matching denim bag with leather details is part of the collection, featuring functional inside pockets for parents on the go. To complete your stroller needs there is even a special-edition Bugaboo by Diesel Seat Liner, Footmuff, Parasol and Mosquito Net in camouflage print from their release.
