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

I don't use a stroller. I find them too luggy and inconvenient. I normally do errands/shopping just me and my two boys and so babywearing is way more managable.

I do both. I often end up bringing both places in case my DS refuses to sit in his stroller. He prefers to be worn in general.

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

I can count on one hand the number of times Tharen was in a stroller in his life. We owned a jogging stroller because dh liked to take Kearnan out jogging but he didn't use it with Tharen (he would scream) so it didn't get used much. When he was a bit bigger he rode in a wagon at Ren fairs when he wasn't on my back. Usually he went back and forth between the carrier and the wagon but the wagon was more for Kearnan and stuff. I didn't know about all of the carriers when Kearnan was a baby so I only had a sling and he rode in a stroller far more often.

In probably 95% of situations I prefer to babywear, but I do have a nice stroller and I use it when it's the appropriate choice. For example: the mall (especially if I plan to try on clothes), zoo, and lately he's been biting me and I've been using the stroller more to take a break from that.

I definitely use a stroller. mostly if I go to the mall (mom is usually with me and she likes to push him around), or of I need a break. My 1 year old is a hefty 25 lbs already, so I can't wear him for extended periods. daddy wears him more than me these days! LOL

I have a stroller but rarely use because my toddler far prefers being in the carrier. I would like to use the stroller more because it can be convenient but it ain't happenin' so much.

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

I have a lightweight stroller for certain kinds of trips. If I'm hitting the mall I bring it to hold my bags or if I know we'll be gone all day and know I'll want a break I bring it along. For the most part it sits in the basement, but there are days I'm just not feeling the wearing love.

Yes, we have a Bob. Love it for walking and running. Also like using it for my doctor appointments.

I use a stroller once in a blue moon. But not often enough for it to have been worth the money.

I do both. My double stroller has been a lifesaver for taking walks around the neighborhood. I like to walk fast and my 3 year old would never be able to keep up with the speed or distance and I don't like to BW when I will be getting hot and sweaty.
