Jogger/car seat recommendations

I’m wanting to find a good jogger and car seat combo. The one we currently have doesn’t navigate well and the car seat seams uncomfortable..I plan on doing a big road trip from California to Canada over Christmas and I want my little 5 month old comfortable and safe while in car or walking about uneven terrain, I’d love to get back into some light jogging again!

    Most running strollers that I know are recommended for 1 year and up and don’t have a car seat that snaps into them. I’d recommend finding a running stroller that’s separate from the car seat/stroller combo. For running strollers people like the BOB. I had one but never got too into running. My daughter found it comfortable though.

    Ahh thanks! That makes sense. What’s a good car seat stroller Combo for getting around town or light trail / terrain ?

    For travel with an infant I’m a big fan of the Graco Snugride car seat with a stroller frame like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UVW3WHK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_mga5Db0QCTFZD. It’s definitely not sturdy though but it is SO LIGHT and easy to travel with. For a studier stroller that the car seat can snap into I love this one (graco breaze) for travel because it can also be used as a normal stroller without any car seat (and my older daughter uses it too): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BGVLQ90/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_nja5DbRSA0832

    Baby jogger summit x5 is a great jogging stroller. The seat is for 3mths+ and has carseat adapters for maxi cosi etc. i didn’t run with my little in the car seat. And I waited until she was 6mths. But it’s a great stroller for walking and running when your little is ready :)

    Thank you! I see the x3 but is that what you meant? I can’t find an x5 ..the x3 mini looks good though. Are you able to jog with it ? Thanks so much

    Yep! x3 :) not mini. I think you’re thinking of the city mini. City mini is not a jogging stroller. The x3 has a wheel that can be fixed straight for jogging or running, city mini doesn’t. That’s what you need for a jogging stroller. What’s great about the x3 stroller is you can make the front wheel fixed straight or make it turn while you’re still moving. The Bob from what I remember you have to stop the stroller and bend down to the front wheel to adjust it. Which for me was a pain.
