Amazon Deals for Moms: 2/15/13

Looking for a way to get some exercise in with little children? After having MW, my mother-in-law bought me a jogger stroller. Best thing ever! I was able to fit the car seat carrier into the stroller and take MW for a walk or a jog.

One thing I would recommend when looking for a jogging stroller is to be sure that it can have either a fixed wheel or a swivel wheel. You need to wheel to be fixed when you're jogging or else the whole stroller will shake uncontrollably, but you want it to be able to swivel if you're just going for a walk so you can easily go around corners without having to pick up the wheel and move it. The one I have has a lever that makes it easy to switch between these two modes.

Right now Amazon has jogging strollers and bike trailers for up to 30% off. Here are some of the best options:

The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Single Jogger is one great option if you're looking for a single stroller. Right now it's only $140, at 30% off. Users rate it at a 4.4/5, so it's well liked by those who've bought it. It even has built-in MP3 speakers so you can hook up your player to the stroller and keep your child entertained with you're jogging. If you need a double stroller, the same jogger, Schwinn Turismo Swivel Double Jogger, is available in a double version as well.

InStep also has their own version of the jogger stroller with the InStep Swivel Wheel Jogger. You can find a double jogger stroller as well. Rated at 4 out of 5 stars, some versions of this stroller come with MP3 speakers and faux lambskin seats.

Of course, another great way to get exercise with little ones is with a bike trailer.

Rated at a 4.9, a great option is the Schwinn Trailblazer Single Bike Trailer at only $91.

A less expensive option, though still rated as a 4.5, is the InStep Sync Single Bicycle Trailer at only $63.

Of course, double trailers are available as well from Schwinn and Instep if you have two little ones to be hauled around. Bike trailers are also a great option if you want to take your kids to a park that is close by as a well to get out of the house.

Though weather might not be ideal right now for jogging or bike riding, you should take advantage of the prices now, which will undoubtedly go up once the weather warms up.
