Makes transporting the carseat a breeze and, even if you wear baby through the airport, gives you a place to stash your bags.

I just used my ring sling because it was hard to have the car carrier and still hold hands while out and about with my other two. Baby quickly got used to being disturbed from the carseat and would settle down and close his eyes when put into the sling. My girls hated the carseat and would not fall asleep in it so I wore them too.

We don't have an infant carsest so baby gets worn 100% of the time when we go out.

We keep an umbrella stroller in the car. Before dd2 was born my 2yo would either be worn or in the umbrella stroller. It depended on what we were doing. If it was super hot out for example I think we were both more comfortable with him in the stroller.

I also own a double jogging stroller that gets used for jogging and walks around the neighborhood. With my other kids I wore them on all walks until it was too hot or they wanted to ride in stroller. I'm sure that will be the route we go as well this time.

I have two kids, I have never owned a stroller. I loved the tummy to tummy carry in ring slings for the newborn/little baby period. I could literally just throw it on and slip my lo in it and go about my day. Even at 21m, I put my lo in a manduca even just to carry groceries inside. I use it every single day.

I don't use a stroller. I only use carriers. With 3 kids it's just easier to put baby in a wrap and get on with business. I didn't use a stroller with my other 2 kids either.
