How to use the Thule Urban Glide for newborns

Although the Thule Urban Glide 2 jogging stroller is designed primarily for jogging, you can also use this stroller as an everyday stroller for walking around town with your newborn, thanks to a bassinet accessory or car seat adapters that fit a wide range of infant car seats!

When you're using the Thule Urban Glide 2 double jogging stroller, you can attach one infant car seat with adapters or one bassinet, but you cannot attach two infant car seats or bassinets at once for twins so the double model will only accomodate one newborn and one toddler, or two children from around 6 months of age and up. For a twin jogging stroller that can support two children from birth, you might consider the Bumbleride Indie Twin.

Please consult with your pediatrician before jogging with a child in the stroller.


For a lay-flat space with your newborn, the Thule Urban Glide 2 bassinet is your best option to keep baby comfortable on longer outings. It clips onto the stroller frame easily using included brackets, and can collapse flat for compact storage or travel.

Features of the Urban Glide 2 bassinet include an easy click-in installation and removal, mesh cover to protect baby from sun, wind and insects, a large UPF 50+ sun canopy with extendable visor, and compact fold. It is available in one color, black, and you can attach the bassinet overtop the existing seat fabrics, or remove the stroller seat and canopy fabrics while using the bassinet for a more streamlined appearance. With the Urban Glide 2 double, the bassinet attaches to the parents' righthand side of the stroller.

If you are wanting to use a prior year Thule Urban Glide for infants, please note that the bassinet is only compatible with the Urban Glide 2 or Glide 2 models, and not the discontinued Glide or Urban Glide models.

The Thule Urban Glide 2 single and double strollers are among the most versatile in terms of compatible infant car seat brands and models, thanks to the Universal Car Seat adapter, shaped like a rectangle with a safety strap to buckle overtop the car seat. Thule also makes two other styles of adapters that are brand-specific - one is designed only for Chicco infant car seats and shares a similar design to the Universal Adapter, and the other is designed for select Maxi Cosi, Nuna, and Cybex infant car seats using a set of two posts that click directly into the car seat as pictured above (with the Nuna PIPA)! Here is a list of approved infant car seats using these adapters:

Nuna / Maxi Cosi / Cybex adapter:

  • Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30, Mico Max Plus, CabrioFix, Citi, Mico Max, Mico NXT, Pebble and PebblePlus (with adapter)

If the Thule Urban Glide 2 single or double stroller will be your primary stroller, you will need to either use the bassinet or infant car seat with adapters to safely transport an infant younger than 6 months of age. The included stroller seat can support a toddler up to 75 pounds for the single model or 50 pounds per seat for the double model, but the seat does not recline flat and will not safely support a newborn that does not yet have developed head and neck support. Adding the bassinet provides a flat and sheltered space for your little one, or for shorter outings you can attach their compatible infant car seat for a convenient travel system from day one.
