Safely Snug

If you are looking to figure out when it is safe to remove the insert from your baby’s car seat then you have come to the right place. We answer the question in depth on this page and give you all the information you need about the topic.

When Do I Remove The Infant Car Seat Insert?

Taking the infant insert out too soon will cause the baby to slump down too low and not fit the seat harness correctly. A good way to determine if your baby is ready for the insert to be removed is to look at the straps. You can safely remove the insert when your baby’s shoulders are level with the straps (or pretty close to it). This should happen when your baby is around 5-6 months old, but I have heard some parents say that the straps were pushing down on their baby too much at just 3 and 1/2 months old.

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. They include infant car seat attachments for jogging strollers just so you can walk with the baby in the car seat. Without it the ride would be too strenuous for the baby’s neck even if you are just walking.

Anyone looking for a jogging stroller that will accommodate a newborn should continue reading this article.  A jogging stroller is a great option for parents of a newborn who would like to jog with their baby in the future.

It’s always best to use an infant car seat that is specifically designed to be used with a particular stroller instead of using an adapter. Usually the adapters are just buckles and straps that fasten the car seat in place. While you shouldn’t expect the car seat to just fall off of the stroller,  it is not nearly as safe as a car seat that clicks into a stroller.
