I’m ready to get back out there and jog so I bought this new stroller for jogging with my baby. Is there is any way I can avoid waiting until my baby is 6-months old to use this jogging stroller?

No, you are never supposed to jog with an infant under 6 months old. You might have seen infant car seat attachments that go on jogging strollers.

Without it the ride would be too strenuous for the baby’s neck even if you are just walking.

There are jogging strollers that are sold that appear to be rubber tires but are actually just plastic covered with rubber. This is a big no-no if you are trying to run with a stroller. Even the ones that do have air filled rubber tires might not be large enough if you want to move at faster speeds.

The Chicco KeyFit 30 is a good choice at 16.75 inches wide. It is not quite the slimmest car seat you can find, but it is an excellent car seat overall that should meet any reasonable requirements a parent may have for a car seat. It’s better to use the base (latch system), but if you can not use the base this car seat will allow you to use the seat belt instead.

I decided that I want a convertible car seat so that my child can stay in the rear facing position for as long as possible, but it has to be one I can easily travel through the airport with.
