I use both depending on the situation as well. I like the stroller for walks, but prefer wearing for shopping and outdoor festivals.

Re: do "baby wearers" never use a stroller?

I use both b/c I have a 3.5 yo, 2 yo, and 5 month old. I go out myself with them all the time, so it's a double stroller and a carrier for me. I used two carriers to tandom wear some , but my 2 yo is 25 lbs and my 5 month old is 15+ lbs and it was too much on my back and shoulders and knees and most other body parts, lol!

Re: do "baby wearers" never use a stroller?

In the beginning I hardly ever put her in the stroller. Now that she's getting bigger I just can't carry her for as long. So long walks/trips shopping I use the stroller now. She's 9 months.

I use both at the same time and rotate kids. (ok yes, I know I'm not typical! lol)

Generally 3 in a triplet stroller, one on my back and one on my front.

Not if I can help it. Meaning I don't carry a stroller in my trunk, just my mei tai. If there is some where I want to go where I think I might want a stroller then I'll bring it.

Im so glad this question was asked!!

I had already got a fairly pricey stroller before I caught the babywearing bug and bought a SSC, a RS, and 2 wraps. So i'm really glad to see the stroller will still be useful!

Honestly for the 18 months or so I only used a stroller for jogging. I attached my water to the SS Carrier.
