I can’t imagine him being comfortable pushing a stroller when he has to lean down like that

i know..poor dads (*at least the tall ones) and taller women. strollers are not made for tall folks–unless you are shelling out major dough.

just wondering why manufacturers don’t make varying heights available.

sigh on

Ouch! How tall is he?

Isn’t Jack 2 1/2 not 3 1/2?

wow hes got some hair! i remeber when he was on antm a couple years ago he was so cute then & still is! poor Nigel he doesnt look very comfortable

Actually he looks very comfortable and happy… I’d assume he doesn’t really mind that the stroller has such short handles, but I do agree with all of you, there must be strollers for tall parents as well and baby changing stations in male bathrooms tooo !!!

Jack looks exactly like his mom!!


Gosh he’s a tall drink of water…so hot!

Jack is adorable

I agree. Strollers & wheel-
chairs need to either have adjustable height handles or extensions that can be used. I am short, so the strollers weren’t a problem when I used them. However, I have to use a wheelchair when traveling & sightseeing, & my 6′ son has that same bent over position pushing me. It kills his back. And my daughter is only 5’2″ & 96 pounds (on a good day), so she can’t handle the chair.

My husband hated pushing our stroller, he is 6″1 and it hurt his back.
Someone needs to invent handles that adjust.

I know some of the MacLaren strollers have adjustable handlebars that you can extend if you are tall…It might be a good investment for him, bc that looks painful!

Those shorter strollers always leave me feeling sore from bending over to push over. And that smile seems readily made for the camera. And it could be genuine and he’s just hiding the soreness he’ll probably end up with afterwards. But more power to him for using that stroller.

I sort of find a short fix when I use the shorter strollers. I try to maneuver them around by using the very end of my fingertips, but even that can only be temporary. Ah, to have adjustable strollers.

Oh, and I think Jack is a blend. I can see Nigel in the brows, eyes and nose, but the rest of him looks like Cristen.🙂

Some strollers have telescoping handles. My brother in law is 6’3 and he and my sister bought a Bugaboo exactly for that reason.

Buggies are not usually made for people who are either shorter or taller than average. My partner and I are quite average height so we had no problems with our daughter, but my mum is only five foot so found our buggy quite difficult to push around. Also, the same buggy was a problem for my partner’s father to push as he is over six foot. If we have another child, I think we will definately be looking more closely at adjustable height buggies, as we do seem to go from one extreme to the other in my family!
