Stroller Infant Insert vs Carseat Adapter

Has anyone skipped getting a carseat adapter and just gone with an infant insert? My youngest is 5 weeks old, and I'd love to start walking with him and the two-year-old. I have a Graco Snugride, which doesn't fit with many of the jogging/all-terrain strollers I've looked at in my price range. Plus the car seat adapters are expensive! I'd love to be able to skip that altogether. It would open up my options a lot. (Disclaimer: I know I can't jog with the little guy until he's at least 6 months.)

  • If you are only looking to use it for walks, get the insert.  Its really not good for babies to spend a lot of time in the car seat outside of the car.

  • As long as the stroller reclines flat you should be fine. Usually you can find in the manual whether the stroller is recommended from birth on or a certain amount of months.

  • I have a jogging stroller as well. I know it says baby under 3 months shouldn't be using the stroller. While running. But if you fully recline the stroller and use it for walking. It should be fine since the baby would be laying flat.
    I also know manufactures say it's up to you since they don't want to be liable for any issues.
    The car seat is good to have, but it also puts the baby in a limited seating position while you are pushing them around. Instead of letting them stretch out and lay in the stroller.
    Its entirely your decision do what you think and feel comfortable with.
