A baby is considered safe to ride on a jogging stroller if s/he is already able to sit unassisted or have a stable neck control, commonly around 8-12 m.o, but the case is different in each baby. If your LO isn't ready yet, don't push it. You don't want to put a risk on the development progress of the delicate brain tissue.

Have you brought him in for his 2 months check yet? If not I would wait and ask his doc. I would think it would be OK at least within the next month to start. Just try to avoid big bumps. Maybe you could put a liner in the stroller that supports his head, like in a car seat.
