    Umbrella strollers

    How old do children have to be before you can put them in umbrella strollers?

    Yeah it depends on the kid and stroller, my kids start using one around 6 months. There are plenty out there now that recline though so you could use them younger than that.

    I think they are supposed to be independent sitters. It depends on the kid and stroller but I know general recommendations are 6 months for that reason.

    Eleanor was a late sitter (probably from her giant noggin), so we didn't really use ours until 8-9 months, and even then she would slouch over...so it got the most use at 1 year +

    49+ weeks preggo, huh? That is one LONG pregnancy!

    OP, like PP have said, it is really child specific. PP gave good advice.
