Unhappy Warning about low-tone kids and conventional strollers

We found out the hard way they don't mix E has been so great at sitting unsupported, I thought it he would be ok in a regular baby stroller for a dance comp. He's usually in his kid kart, but that thing is so huge & heavy. Well, we did ok for the test walk the afternoon before. Sat came, brought out the stroller in the morning and he was sitting well. Got busy trying to get dd ready and I heard a crash & scream. E had dropped something and leaned over to see where it went & the entire stroller tipped over with him in it

I wasn't even thinking that b/c of his growth issues his weight distribution isn't the same as most children. We didn't have anything underneath or hanging on the handle of the stroller. It was just the weight of throwing his head over that was enough to tip. E was ok, just terrified to sit back in a stoller. I guess it's either his powerchair or kid kart whenever we go out now

Whoa! Not fun. We usually use a stroller for Ellie because she's still small enough to fit in one. Maybe we should start using her chair.

why not a BOB or other high quality jogger? they have a high weight limit and great harnesses and are smaller than what is sonds like you use. kelty is very nice too.

my son daniel has autism. i used the graco quatro until 2 years ago. he just turned 8. i had to keep him confined when we were out during my other sons baseball games. he's a small kid. just over 40lbs now. maybe look into one of those.

i'm glad he didnt get hurt!
