View Full Version : How young & light can baby be to use a BOB?
10-16-2010, 10:14 AM
So I finally ordered a Duallie, but I'm wondering what's the soonest I can use it with DD (2) and DS (almost 2 weeks old). I plan to get some sort of infant insert for it (would the Snuzzler work?), because I'm going to skip the car seat adaptor (we bought it with DD but it didn't work well so we took it back). I'm obviously not going to take him jogging/ running or anything, just want something I can walk them in to the park, etc.
Thanks for your help! :)

Bob recommends 8 weeks because their strollers do not have full recline:

I have a somewhat older Duallie (maybe 2007 model?) and it reclines almost flat. I bought a JJ Cole insert and started using it with DS#2 around maybe 3 or 4 months. I probably could have done it a little sooner and maybe should have because DS#2 was so used to not lying flat in the stroller from the snap-n-go that he HATED the full recline - I ended up waiting another couple of months until he could just sit up in it and now at 7 mos he rides sitting up with the insert and loves it. I think the main issue with a very small baby is that it might be difficult to get the straps tight enough for a really secure hold. Good luck! I agree that the car seat adapter for the BOBs is a PITA and IMHO the one for the Duallie is even worse than the single...
