Cool Babywearing

Ok poll and discussion, I am bummed cause DS isn't into it as much as I'd like lol he likes structured carriers but not so much nice fluffy ones LOL

So does anyone else use a stroller sometimes?

Re: Babywearing

I voted always in a carrier. But, that's with me. My dh often pushes ds around the block in a stroller. I think he actually enjoys sitting up by himself and looking around sometimes.

Re: Babywearing

We use both! I love my pouch, but we also use the stroller when we go out on walks. Sometimes we use the stroller at the mall and park also. Just depends on what we are doing and the mood ds is in!

Re: Babywearing

Definitely both! The carrier is great for the grocery store, a short walk, if he's tired or whatnot. But he seems to like the stroller better if we go somewhere like the zoo or something.

Re: Babywearing

DH much prefers a MT to a stroller, which kind of shocked me at first! LOL He looks so adorable wearing her too!

Ditto to this. DD loves being carried when shes tired, but she alsoloves to look around and see everything. And when she cant she gets pretty miffed lol we only have MTs so sometimes its hard for her to see.

Re: Babywearing

I wear my son a lot, especially if I have all my little guys with me. I watch a 2yo little boy so when I have two 2yos and my 10 mo I put the big guys in the stroller and the baby in the MT. And if we go to Target or Albertsons its easier to keep him in the MT than a dirty cart, even with a cover. But if I only have my 2yo and 10 mo I will break out the double stroller.

I don't know why it bums me out so much lmao it's not like strollers are BAD lol but I wish he were into it more, mind you I mostly do wear him, but in a hip carrier, now, he was in a shopping cart for the first time last night too and kinda liked that

Re: Babywearing

When Luke was a little baby I wore him 99% of the time but now that he is almost 2 and I'm pg again I usually use a stroller/shopping cart with him unless he is walking. Although, I did use my Hotsling twice recently and he still does well in it.
