Added Self Defense For Walking Or Running Mom’s & Their Babies
If you’re a jogging, running or walking mom with a stroller or wheeled jogger. You and your baby are easy prey for any attacker. The Baby Saver pepper spray model is your chance to be in control of a bad situation.
If a stray dog starts running towards you to attack your baby or bite at your feet, you can easily pull your pepper spray bottle out of the Baby Saver holder and stop the dog in his tracks. The flipside to this, is if you had nothing to defend you and your baby, both of you could have gotten seriously injured.
Any stranger looking for an easy victim to mug or kidnap will be looking for a defenseless women. With the Baby Saver pepper spray unit, you can spray a high powered stream of the hottest pepper spray on the market up to 10 feet away towards any threatening person. This will put the attacker on his knees and give you time to get your baby and yourself out of the area.
Being prepared is key to you and your babies safety while you’re out jogging, running or walking in parks, sidewalks or simply in your neighborhood.
Besides having a self defense spray, here are some other help tips before you head out with your stroller or wheeled jogger.
Lock the front wheel
Some jogging strollers have a fixed front wheel, while others have a switch that allows you to lock and unlock the wheel. When you’re running with the stroller, it’s safest to lock the front wheel in place. This will prevent the stroller from turning suddenly and causing you to crash or fall.
Most jogging strollers have a basket underneath, as well as other compartments or holders, so you should have plenty of room for things you might need during your run. Don’t forget diapers, wipes, water (for you and your child), snacks, and a toy or book to entertain your child. Don’t forget to strap on your Baby Saver pepper spray before heading out.
Protect your child from the elements
Remember that you’ll warm up because you’re running, but your child will not. So bundle her up in the cooler weather. If it’s cold and windy, you may want to use a weather shield for your stroller. On warm days, make sure your child is not overdressed and protected with the stroller’s visor as well as sunscreen. Keep your runs short on very cold or hot days (or leave your child with your spouse or sitter).
Strap your child in with the full harness
The harness will protect your child from falling out or getting shaken. Even if you’re not moving too quickly, the harness will prevent him from reaching out and getting his fingers caught in the wheels.
Avoid running near cars as much as possible
It is a good idea to run in parks, bike paths, or other areas where the roads are closed to traffic.
Schedule runs wisely
Before naptime is often a good time for a run because the movement may put your child to sleep. It’s not a good idea to try to run right before a meal, when your child will be hungry and may not want to sit in the stroller.
Don’t run hands-free
You may be tempted to push your stroller a little and let it go, so you can run hands-free, but it’s not a good idea. The stroller could easily get away from you, which is unsafe for your child and anyone else around you.
