- Relax your Shoulders- It is common to tense up while pushing your baby. It is not a position we are used to. Plus, we are pushing 20+ pounds on wheels. Not something we are used to unless of course your day time job is pushing an ice cream cart. If you are tense your neck and shoulders will hurt. Relaxing your shoulders does sound weird but, what you want to do is drop your shoulders down so they are not up at your ears.
- Posture Perfect-Pushing from your center or middle will not only strengthen your tummy but it will also keep you from having a sore back. When you go up hills especially push from your center. You should not be hunched over the handlebars no matter how hard. In time this will get easier I promise.
- One Hand Push-Pushing your stroller is actually easier when you use just one hand. Push with one hand and swing the other to help you maintain your stride. Be sure to use the wrist strap on the hand that you push with. We do not want to hear about your stroller taking off down the hill without you. You will eventually develop your own running style.
