Re: stroller use vs babywearing

We live in a rural small town. I have to drive to get groceries and things like that. But we walk to the PO and walk around our town on nice days. I do not use a stroller.

Re: stroller use vs babywearing

We're in Urban area, but prefer to use the carrier. Although, now that my DD is over 2, she prefers the stroller! ;(

We didn't even register for a stroller with DD (2.5y), but someone got us one anyway. We only use it for occasional walks around the park near our house, and only when DD brings all her sand toys for the playground.

We are expecting #2 now, and my mom bought us a Bugaboo Donkey Duo ( ). I think it will still be our secondary method of transport, but we are pretty excited to try it. Most of the time, we will have the newbie in a Sleepywrap and DD walking or in her Kinderpack.

Re: stroller use vs babywearing

I live in a small town, but my DS1 usually rides in the stroller and I wear DS2 wherever we go. I didn't see the point in purchasing a double stroller, and wish I had an ergo with DS1 instead of the painful bjorn, otherwise I would of second guessed a stroller completely!

Re: stroller use vs babywearing

We walk to the store and I do use my stroller to carry the groceries back. I may trade it for a grocery cart soon.

I live in an urban area, and I baby wear and use the stroller pretty equally. it just depends on the weather, and where I'm going and how my baby is feeling.
if its a really cold wet day and I'm going to the grocery store I will most likely baby wear with a big coat that I can zip us up in. But if its a nice day and we want to walk I will put him in the stroller.

We live in a rural area that is now becoming part of the suburbs. However there is no way to walk anywhere! There are huge state roads on both sides of my neighborhood so its driving everywhere for us

Urban, but use our car to get everywhere, so I said other. We only use the stroller for outings like zoos and amusement parks. I can't baby wear 3 children.
