Re: Babywearing

When youngest was littler her was in a carrier most of the time cause my ds#2 was in the stroller. Now we mostly put him in the stroller if we are at the mall or a cart at the grocery store. He will go in a carrier though if we are at a fair or somewhere that doesn't have enough room for a stroller. He is just so wiggly in the carrier its easier to let him walk or ride in the stroller. Oh I voted both.

Re: Babywearing

We take both wherever we go. My ds is almost 30 lbs at 13 mos, and I have chronic horrible back pain, and pelvic separation still from his pregnancy and delivery.

So on one hand, if he's happy in a stroller, I will often use that (easier on my poor body). But if he is needing to be carried, it's MUCH easier on me to wear him in a mei tai than carry him in my arms.

Now, we are just starting to enter the world of walking, which is a whole other option. He wants to do that all the time now.

Re: Babywearing

I use both. I like to wear Chloe in my Ergo but I know she likes to be in the stroller also.
