Re: stroller use vs babywearing
We live in a very walkable area and rarely drive anywhere. We use a stroller and babywear. I have a behemoth stroller for grocery trips, long walks (2+miles), etc. and a really good quality umbrella stroller for public transport. I love to babywear, but walking that many miles with a heavy kid on your back just isnt realistic. Luckily my youngest is two now, so both options are getting less and less use. I think your theory sounds right. When we drive we dont use a stroller.
