You're probably used to strolling with your child by this point. Strap them into their baby stroller, fasten the safety harness around their waist, and you're off on an adventure.
Your stroller may even have a carriage mode, allowing the baby to rest while you're out and about. Walks provide both the parent and the baby with a much-needed change of scenery (and the momentary illusion of peace).
As your infant grows and interacts with the world, you may wonder when they will be able to sit up in the Stroller and take in all the sights with you.
When Can My Baby Sit in a Baby Stroller?
No magical age indicates when your child is ready to graduate to the stroller seat. The transition from infant or carriage mode to stroller seat is determined primarily by size and developmental stage. Your child should ride fully reclined for the first few months because their muscles are still developing.
We recommend switching to a reclined stroller seat once the baby can support their head on their own, which is usually around three months old. When babies can sit up on their own, usually between the ages of five and seven, they can transition to fully upright in the stroller seat.
What if Your Baby Does Not Want to Sit in the Stroller?
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to help soothe your baby and acclimate him to strollers so that you can take him on the go safely (and peacefully) — or give your arms and back a break.
First, settle him
Avoid putting your baby in a stroller if he is already fussing or crying. When you put him in, he'll only get angrier (and louder! ), so wait until he's calm and happy before trying again.
Calm him down and divert his attention
Before attempting to buckle your infant into a stroller, place him on his back on a play mat, a blanket on the floor, or in his crib. Then, give them something to look at and listen to, like a mobile or some toys to swat, and some music or white noise. Once he's settled down, you could try placing him in his Stroller.
Music is also useful when driving with a baby because no matter how much he cries, he has no choice but to be restrained.
Experiment with a different setting
If your baby has a better view, he might calm down. Try putting your bouncer in front of a mirror (your child will enjoy looking at himself in the mirror) or attaching safe toys to his seat for him to admire and play with.
If your baby despises his seat, you could bring it inside and play with him while he's strapped in so he starts to feel a little more comfortable (and happier) when he's buckled in.
Hang him up
If he craves closeness, carry him in a sling or other carrier that keeps him as close to you as possible. While you'll still carry around a little sidekick, your hands will be free to do other things while carrying your baby.
