You can even fold the stroller with the adapter/brackets attached, giving you a versatile travel system. Car seat adapters create more travel system options an are designed to meet relevant stroller safety standards.

Most Car seat adapters are suitable for children up to 20 lbs (approximately 9 months old), after which its usually recommended that your child start using the stroller.

Car seat adapters are usually infant car seat and stroller specific, so you need to choose the right car seat adapter for your stroller.

Top Car Seat Adapters for Jogging Strollers

For a new parent who is also a regular jogger, a car seat adapter is one accessory that could be a real blessing. It helps attach your car seat to the jogging stroller creating a perfect travel system for you and your baby. You can attach a compatible car seat to the stroller with the adapter and be rest assured that your child will be safe and secure in it. The best part is you can use it for newborns even until the time you think your child is ready to stay in a stroller without the head support.

Every jogger who is a parent worry about their kids, especially newborns being affected by the jolts and bounces in the stroller caused while jogging. Children that age are extremely sensitive to movement and need ample padding and cushion to protect them and keep them steady. Car seats do that for you. A car seat is well padded and cushioned and have the mandatory crash impact protection systems when fitted to a stroller. It gives the child a smooth ride and ample protection and helps you jog comfortably too.

Car seat adapters are designed to fit certain brands and models of jogging strollers. Same applies to the car seats too. So, be sure to check the compatibility before buying your adapter. If you are confused about where to start looking, brands like Baby Jogger and BOB make car seat adapters that can be used for many jogging strollers.

Any Universal Car Seat Adapter for Jogging Strollers?

An ideal situation would be if there was one single car seat adapter that fits all strollers and car seats.

It can be confusing sometimes for parents to check what is compatible and what is not. However, since jogging strollers come in different dimensions, it is difficult to find a universal car seat adapter. The ones in the market that are available as “universal” are adapters that fit multiples of their own brand joggers and strollers. However, you can always check their list of compatible infant cars before you go through with the purchase.

Some adapters can fold with the strollers and are semi permanently attached to the jogging strollers while there are others are more permanent and need to be removed before you fold the stroller. If you have Adapters from the same brand of your jogging stroller, it becomes much easier to fit and use. In that case, it’s just a one-step clip-on systems that firmly secures a car seat in place.

How Safe Are Car Seat Adapters for Strollers?

There have been couple of early complaints of tipping especially with a side by side double jogging stroller due to unequal weight. But that was primarily with the early designs of car seat adapters. But adapters have come a long way since then. The new designs have eliminated the tipping issue.

Not all strollers can be used with the infant car seat, however, the manufacturers always mention the strollers that can be fitted with the car seat.

However safe the adapter maybe, parents are always advised against jogging with a baby in a car seat. Unless the child is strapped into the stroller seat and are old enough to hold their head without support, parents are advised caution while jogging. Another cautionary warning is the weight limit for a jogging stroller. Ensure that the jogging stroller can hold the weight of your baby before using it for which you may have to double check the adapter.
