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

I do both. My DD found a stroller shapped like a care and she fell in love with it so I bought it for her. My babsitter is also too big for my baby wearing gear so I have a stroller for her

I use one for my 2.5 year old but I'd like to carry her more. My almost 5 year old asks to be in the stroller too. She's way too tall for me to carry, ha.

I used a stroller when baby fell asleep in the car and I didn't want to wake him when we got where we were going.

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

Personally, I find strollers mostly inconvenient - but just like others have said, they have their place. When we had our first in 2007 we got a small stroller that could be used for infancy through toddlerhood and we've only used it on a number of occasions. For one, I love to hold my baby, and second, babies love to be held!

It's so easy to multitask around the house with a carrier, and if I'm out running errands I'll put a carrier on before getting the baby out of the carseat. It's such a hassle maneuvering even small strollers through crowds, nevermind the big ones with baskets to hold everything but the kitchen sink. Why bother toting the stroller, unfolding it, getting baby in and out etc. when you can use a simple carrier? Our kiddos are old enough to walk by themselves now - or ride on Daddy's shoulders - but when we did use a stroller it was mainly for walks around the neighborhood or at the mall when I had a baby AND a small toddler.

Number 3 is on the way and I can't wait to use my carriers again! I get kind of sad when I see babies put in carseats and stay in them because they whole carseat can be moved to its own stroller or to the grocery cart then back to the car and even inside to a swing or bed.

Yes I use a stroller, especially if it is hot. She is fickle and sometimes HAS to be worn and sometimes REFUSES. Babies, I tell you... so moody

Occasionally. I think I used one 4 times with my DD and twice with DS, now almost 2.

We purchased a stroller just in case. I do think they can come in handy at times.

I use a stroller sometimes. If I am going shopping or planning to try on clothes, for sure. It's usually easier for me to bw, because my 14m old wants to be held always. Even when I take the stroller, I end up with a baby on my back and pushing an empty stroller the majority of the time. :/
