Re: Help me understand...
you know that is so funny i never thought of it that way! we have a 5 year old chicco umbrella stroller that i have used like 2x with my last 2 babies since i am always wearing them so if i had wanted a double or triple stroller or something i would easily spend 100$ used nevermind the cost of one new so a more expensive carrier can be justified much better when that is the case!

In fact DS is 4 and still gets worn when we need to walk alot or if it is really busy because he gets nervous (sensory issues). People don't think much of a 2-300 dollar stroller and my carrier serves that purpose.
I also like variety for different situations and temperatures. I still covet a woven wrap ( a nice one) but right now I just have 2 moby style wraps (1 really stretchy, one just sorta stretchy), a gauze wrap that I made, 2 Mai tai's, a maya wrap ring sling, and the ergo.
The only one I paid full price for was the ergo.
