Joie Litetrax 4 Air: Would you choose it as your main stroller for a 5mo baby and some harder terrain?

Magda • 23 Jun 2023

Would you choose it as your main stroller for a 5+ baby that already likes to face the road? We like traveling and often have to use city's and countrysides hardships so we need a good suspension stroller, plus easy to fold.

Hello Magda,

Well, do you mean a 5 months+, or 5 years+? I am going to guess you mean a five months old baby, in which case, if you as well as the little one are ok with facing just forward, and you will keep the baby in the reclined position until the baby sits by itself, without any help or you pulling him or her upward, then yes, it's an ok solution. The larger wheels with air, and the superbly padded seat will work nicely.

However, keep in mind this is more of an urban model with some capability going over bumps, it is not an all-terrain beast - so if the terrain you have in mind is truly harsh, then you will need a larger-wheeled stroller with more suspension, e.g. a Thule Urban Glide 2 or a Baby Jogger City Elite 2.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
