Loved to Pieces

Our well loved triplet baby jogger finally kicked it. We put so many miles on it that the steel frame cracked and one of the wheels fell right off.

We began running with our trio when they were barely two months old. To this day the kids love to 'go jogging' in the baby jogger. It is also perfect for corralling all our supplies and park toys.

When Holden was born we added a single baby jogger to our stroller fleet and we run as a family at least three times a week. We use the triple jogger just about everyday for trips to the park and other walks. This is possibly our most critical piece of baby equipment.

So we were relieved to discover that the Baby Jogger frames have a lifetime warranty. And when I called the company and talked to Angela we found that since our model has been retired they will be shipping us a brand new triple jogger. Woo-hoo! We are thrilled and can't wait for our new jogger to arrive so we can get back to jogging as a family.

The new triple baby jogger Summit 360 model has some great upgrades like swivel front wheels, a feature my friends with (double) BOB strollers rave about (BOB doesn't offer a triple jogger). You can even lock the wheels in place to provide more stability for longer jogs.

I'll update the blog once our new stroller arrives and we have a chance to try it out.

Reminiscing on early days of baby jogging. They were so tiny. From left to right, that's Will, Evan, and Lily in pink.

SCORE! That's awesome you'll be getting a new stroller!! I ALWAYS wished that we had invested in a triplet jogger when our children were younger. I know I would have probably used it until the front wheel fell off, too!!

yes!! isn't that fabulous?

they are an investment, but we have used it so much that we are already down to less than a dollar per use.

i'd love a double jogger too, can you have too many strollers?

How awesome that you are getting a brand new one! Hopefully the new one arrives very soon.

that's so great that they're sending you a new one! i have a (double) baby jogger and when it arrived i thought one of the wheels was defective so they sent me a new one. um, it was flat. just needed air! but their customer service is awesome. enjoy the new stroller! :)

That is GREAT that they are sending you a new one. That would have been a painful purchase to replace I'm sure. Enjoy it when it comes!
