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

I do both! For running errands I used the carriers (now my little wants to walk herself or ride in the car) and for adventures like the park or museum or zoo I would bring the stroller. I love having a spot to stash my stuff! I used to bring my baby carrier in the stroller too so I had all my options open.

I use both... Most likely when this LO arrives we will be baby wearing the wee one and getting a double stroller.

I have a double stroller but I rarely use it. I probably use it like 3 times a year.

My first daughter never used a stroller but now with two I wear the baby and push my older . Having a carriage has been awesome though! I can change baby's diaper in there, hold all my stuff, cup holders, and even sit baby in there if we are gettin lunch or helping DD1 with something out.

I have 5 different carriers and still sometimes use a stroller.

Sometimes my older dd is in the stroller and I carry younger dd,

Sometimes both girls are in strollers.

My younger dd gets touched out at times and needs space away.

We go on the kids' cues and give them a choice when appropriate.

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

nope, not really. I use my jogging stroller for my 2 yr old sometimes when I don't feel like wearing him and the 4 mo old together and dh is not around to wear him. If I start running by the time the baby is 1, I will use a stroller for running. I don't put little one in carts either. I see no need to, esp as I see moms pushing a stroller AND cart in the store while carrying a screaming baby in arms!

However, I rarely wear at home. Only when one of the littles are particularly fussy and I need to get stuff done. At home, I usually just hold the baby in arms or sit with him.

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

We didn't own a stroller until DD1 was 20 months old. The only reason I bought one was because I was going to do my student teaching, and she was with the babysitter for 12 weeks. I thought the baby sitter might want a stroller. She never used it. We never used it with DD2 either (except for an occasional walk around the block in it once she discovered what it was and thought it was fun to go for a ride. It was a waste of money.

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

i have both strollers and carriers!

how else would i carry around my mini stash while i am at the mall???

My stroller usually transports a lot more stuff than small persons. my one year old tolerates the stroller outdoors much better than inside.
