How to Fold the Mia Moda Stroller

By Lisa Baker

Mia Moda makes a variety of strollers and travel systems for babies, including a jogging stroller, an umbrella stroller and a stroller with a step where an older child can stand. All of the Mia Moda strollers fold so they can be stored or carried. However, the method for folding each type of Mia Moda stroller is slightly different. Before you fold any model, close the canopy (if applicable) and lock the breaks by pushing the brake lever down. The brake lever may be on the bar between the rear wheels, or there may be a lever on each rear wheel, depending on the model.
