Baby Jogger Double Stroller Adjustable Belly Bar Review
Is your child the type to just lay back and relax in the stroller? Or, would he lean forward and try to sit up while riding? Both my 16 months old and 3 years old hate it when I recline the seats to a lay-flat position. They always prefer the seats in an up position. That way, they would lean forward – and the younger one recently learned to sit up. Right then, I knew it was time to get a belly bar for my baby jogger city select.
I was so excited when I ordered my Baby Jogger Double Stroller Adjustable Belly Bar. I had done extensive research before making the actual purchase. It shipped earlier than the indicated schedule. I quickly installed it when I got it. It actually looks better than it shows on the profile pictures.
I love that it goes really high – levels my 3-year-old son’s face. And he’s tall. It comes with a soft padded area for them to hold on to. I know they love how it feels holding the bar when riding…it’s fun. I’m sure the padding is gentle on their soft palms. I hang some dangly dollies and doodles for my 16-month-old to play with. She really loves how they swing back and forth when strolling. My two cent wish: I should have gotten this sooner.
Features of the Baby Jogger Double Stroller Adjustable Belly Bar
The Baby jogger adjustable belly bar is such a lovable accessory for any city series stroller. I have a Baby jogger city select and it performs even better with the belly bar installed. I instantly loved the bar and so did my lovelies. I was impressed with its quality and premium features.
Easy to install, easy to use and last for the longer. Everything about this belly bar is loveable. It’s a high-quality belly bar that is durable and super affordable. Such a price range is something you don’t get very often for baby jogger products.
The Baby Jogger Double Stroller Belly Bar fits my city select perfectly. It is made to be compatible with all city series strollers; single strollers and double strollers.
You’ll wish you had purchased this alongside your city stroller. It complements the city Strollers in a way that no other Accessory will. And it’s a functional accessory that your kids will love.
Super Easy to Install
The belly bar is compatible with any city series single or double stroller. It attaches to my Baby Jogger city select easily and removing is as easy. But I wouldn’t remove it. It helps in everything.
It’s a pretty affordable accessory, and you get good quality and impressive durability for the price. It’s extremely functional and versatile. Installation is super easy. By simply pushing a button, you can adjust the height of the belly bar to suit your children’s’ height.
The padding cover can be removed for washing if it gets all sweaty and dirty. Your children will have somewhere nice and clean to hold on to every time they go for a ride.
Adjustable Belly Bar
This Baby Jogger Belly Bar is adjustable to suit different children’s height. My son loves the bar being at par with his chest, my daughter likes it high…so she can see the toys swing from above. It’s hard to reach a compromise when both of them are so insistent.
But, most of the time my son has his way. He can really throw a tantrum when things don’t go his way. That’s beside the point, the bar is adjustable! This makes it more functional and offers some kind of flexibility.
Versatile, Multiple Functions
I first knew I needed a belly bar when my 16-month-old daughter learned to sit up. My son was already the squirmy one and would always lean forward and found fun ways to play with his legs or try reaching for the sunshade.
The belly bar came in handy. I use it for nearly everything. I hang dollies for my daughter to play with.
My son loves holding the bar and make car engine noises as if he was driving and the belly bar was his steering. The bar makes a nice carrying handle when the stroller is folded up. Overall, the bar is all you will need…it’s so versatile.
Supports Infant Car Seat
I read that you can actually use the belly bar to support your infant car seat. If only I had another BABY coming! It works fine and does not snap in. It would have been perfect for cruising around the neighborhood or the mall.
Some city strollers place the infant car seat adapter far away from the parent. I’ve even seen some complain that the car seat receivers are not sturdy.
Fitting the car seat over the belly bar solves the problem. The car seat sits perfectly on the belly bar and it fits inside the stroller snuggly. It brings the car seat much closer to you.
Hang Dangly Toys
I still beat myself over not springing for this bar sooner! My little girl loves it…so does little Mike. They seem more entertained and excited during their time in the buggy; ever since got the belly bar. Mike just loves to hold the bar and makes car engine sounds.
He cannot just relax on the seat. He would yell and throw a tantrum so massive whenever I recline the seat such that he cannot reach for the bar. Feeling the bar with my hands, I know why he likes holding on to it.
For my little princess, I hang dollies and pretty much anything that she decides to play with. The toys dangle well on the bar and she gets very excited seeing them swing as we stroll.
