Q&A: Safe To Jog After Birth?

When is it safe to jog with baby after I give birth?

Your baby will begin to hold herself in a sitting position with good head and neck control by six months. Once baby reaches this age, it’s safe to use the jogging stroller. In the meantime, you can get lots of exercise (and get back to your prebaby weight) by walking. There are many types of carriers and slings to allow the baby to go along for the ride.
