Re: Babywearing

I voted stroller only. I tryed wearing DS when he was small since dd was only 15 months. He didn't like it at all! I tried again recently with an ERGO and he would fuss and pull my hair to get down. Needless to say that didn't work out.

Re: Babywearing

yeah Gavin has his moods too lol I just want him to be happy so most of the time if we bring a stroller, we bring a carrier too other times just a carrier, if I had the money to I'd probably try some of the other "fluffy" brands out there and maybe we'd find one we both like lol but for now, we're good I already sold a ring sling and PS he didn't like Moby now I may change my mind cause I tried him in it again when he woke up and now he seemed to like it

Re: Babywearing

I think lily has been in a stroller twice?? I alway wear her b/c its easier to deal with my DS on outings. I HATE double strollers so if anyone needs to be in the stroller its DS and I just have an umbrella stroller. My DD loves to be worn!

Re: Babywearing

Well my dd is 11 months old and we just now got an Ergo. So before it was only stroller now it's both. She loves riding in her stroller but we walk my daughter to school every morning and then walk 2 miles. It has been so hot down here that I wouldn't have been able to carrier her without both of us getting too hot, kwim? And that is walking at 7:30 in the morning. But thankfully it has started to cool a little, so I've been finding excuses to wear my Ergo!!!!

Re: Babywearing

Jett is nearing two....and still we sling and use an Ergo. He won't have it any other way. He hates the stroller we have ... we've only used maybe 5 times now. Each time, he just pushes it around and won't sit in it.

Re: Babywearing

It depends what we're doing, if we're not going for a long walk, DD is in the carrier even tho she much prefers the stroller. If we're doing a lot of walking (ie the zoo, walkign to the post office (2 1/2 miles away) or just a long walk) She goes in the wagon w/my 2 year old. I have one of those nice ones that has an umbrella and straps them in

Re: Babywearing

I use both. For short errands, I wear, but for longer trips, like the mall, zoo, walks, I use the stroller. My DS has never liked being confined for long periods of time. He is what I call the anti-snuggler.

Re: Babywearing

I wore them a lot when they were younger (up until 4 or 5 months). After that they seemed to really want to sit up in the stroller.

Re: Babywearing

I voted stroller all the time. Sam REALLY does not like to be worn--which is sad (becuase I bought 3 hotslings!), but I love pushing him around in his little umbrella stroller. It reminds me of when I was little and would play Mommy and push a baby doll stroller up and down our street. But Sam is 17 lbs and will be 3 months old tomorrow--so it actually saves my poor back!
