Find the Power of Movement With UPPAbaby®

Learning, growing, watching, feeding, changing, worrying, laughing, crying, bathing, playing–from day one, hundreds of actions merge into one all-defining verb: parent. It’s easy to be selfless when it comes to your child; from the moment they enter your life, they become the center of your world. But with all of the love and energy you give them, it can be easy to forget to look after yourself, too.

According to recent studies [1] [2], movement can be a wonderful way to find or regain that balance; just ten minutes of walking or light exercise can increase energy, boost mental awareness and elevate your mood! And the even better news? You never have to choose between taking care of yourself or time with your child, because UPPAbaby has exactly what you need to bring your little one along for the fun.

Outdoor Adventures

For a relaxing walk through your neighborhood, you’ll love the Vista and Cruz strollers. Both options have an all-wheel suspension, a locking front wheel, and can attach an UPPAbaby bassinet or Infant Car Seat for convenience. Keep an eye on your baby through the vented peekaboo window; they’ll be snug as a bug in their multi-position recline while you get your steps in. These strollers are designed to keep both passenger and pusher as comfy as possible–UPF 50+ protection and the ventilated canopy help them stay cool, and an adjustable handlebar with full grain leather gives you a strong and stylish grip as you cruise along. Keep your water bottle and their toys in the extra-large, easy-access 30lb basket, and enjoy the fresh air together.

For parents who want to pick up the pace, we’ve also created the ideal jogging stroller. When you’re ready to hit the pavement–or the trail–the Ridge is thoughtfully designed for getting out there. It features an advanced suspension with variable coil springs and deep-tread, never-flat tires to conquer any terrain without having to worry about bringing along a pump. Handle hills and hikes confidently with a handbrake and 4-position handlebar with a wrist strap. A swivel-locking front wheel and adjustable tracker keep wheel alignment fine-tuned at any pace, while reflective accents help you stay safe at any time of day. And, of course, we included a zipper pocket and integrated basket cover to keep your belongings safe as you go, go, go!

Taking it Indoors

If you prefer to exercise indoors, we get it–it’s hot out right now. We have a variety of solutions in our in-home line to keep your baby occupied and happy while you do yoga, lift weights, or follow your favorite YouTube workout video. A favorite from newborns to toddlers is the Mira, a 2-in-1 bouncer and seat that gently rocks to their rhythm. Add an accessory like the Forest Fun Toy Bar or the Wonder Wheel Toy Bar to inspire them to exercise their fine motor development and hand-eye coordination. While you reach your ten minutes of movement, they’ll reach out and grab at the Toy Bar’s fun and engaging textures, stimulating their curiosity and encouraging cognitive milestones.

We also recommend the Remi, a lightweight, portable playard that can be set up anywhere you’re breaking a sweat. Its unobstructed mesh design allows you to see your baby from any angle in the room, from the stationary bike to the foam mat. Zip open the panel for quick access to your little one, and know that they’re comfy and safe on the breathable air-mesh mattress with its soft cotton cover. The Remi can also serve as a newborn solution with its included mesh bassinet that zips on and off.

Finding Balance

Your baby is intuitive–they smile when you smile, and they can also sense when you’re not feeling your best. In fact, studies have shown that infants as young as one month are affected by their parents’ moods [3]. With this in mind, prioritizing your self care is also part of caring for your family. Whether you’re walking, jogging, stretching or doing jumping jacks, investing ten minutes a day in yourself helps ensure that everyone in your home feels their best. Give yourself that time without missing a moment; keep your little one by your side as you earn your endorphins, with UPPAbaby.
