BOB recommends that your child should be at least 8 weeks old before riding in a BOB stroller without the infant car seat attachment found on BOB Gear strollers.
If you are using the BOB infant car seat attachment, the accessory will “click” into the adapter as soon as it’s inserted. When the car seat is put in its base, it should now be positioned as if it were a car seat.

Few Things To Keep In Mind When Putting A Baby In A BOB Stroller
- Always check the weight limit for your particular model just to be safe.
- Many BOB strollers come with an infant car seat adapter that allows you to click in your infant car seat (assuming it is compatible) for a safe and easy ride. If you do not have an adapter, you can often purchase one separately.
- Put your baby in the stroller with the seat belt on and make sure that the harness is tightened correctly.
- Always make sure your infant is properly buckled in according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Do not put anything in the stroller that could potentially hurt your baby, such as loose items or sharp objects.
- Make sure that the brakes are engaged before putting the baby in the stroller.
- Avoid using the stroller on rough or uneven surfaces, as this could cause your baby to become jostled around.
- Be cautious of hot weather and make sure to keep your baby hydrated and cool while in the stroller.
- Keep an eye on your baby at all times while in the stroller, and never leave them unattended.
- Be sure to read your stroller’s manual thoroughly before using it, in order to familiarize yourself with its proper usage.
By following these simple tips, you can help ensure that your baby has a safe and comfortable ride in your BOB stroller.
Is It Safe To Take A Three-Month-Old In A Jogging Stroller?
Until your baby is at least six months old and can sit up on their own without any help from you, it’s generally unsafe to walk them in a stroller.
At four months, a baby can usually hold his or her head securely without help, and at six months, he or she can sit with some help. He/she can sit for 9 months without assistance and get into and out of a sitting posture, but he/she may require support.
A jogging raptor is perfect for babies between 6 and 8 months old and 8 pounds in weight who are able to move around while seated. These strollers come equipped with a safety harness to keep your little one secure and safe.
In addition, BOB strollers have a recline adjustment strap that runs behind the seat. To get the seat upright, you may need to modify the length of the strap.
Why Do Babies Need To Lie Flat Until They Are Six Months Old?
Instead of being propped up on an inclined seat or crammed into a bucket-shaped seat, newborns should lie flat.
The lie-flat posture helps them to breathe freely and get all of the oxygen they require, and it is also the optimum lying-down position for promoting correct spine and hip development.
