Milo loves the grocery store (free bread samples and lots of people to wave to) and I loooooove getting some free time to myself on Saturday mornings.

 

 



Hehe that is how we do "daddy dates" too, take her shopping with you!

We live about a block from a grocery store and have a nice little walkable neighborhood in Portland...

 

I do use my stroller all the time to go to the grocery store--and we grocery shop about every day, and in the spring and summer go to the farm stand and food carts a few blocks away....

 

Even if baby doesn't ride in the stroller, I frequently bring it just to schelp everything!  Now that my toddler is almost too big to wear a lot, he rides in the stroller... but I would frequently wear him and just push the empty stroller since my DD hated the stroller by then...

 

I guess it is mostly the same as a cart, but if you need to change a diaper, set down a sleeping baby to eat or enjoy coffee in a coffee shop, etc.  it is nice to have that option with the stroller... but you can't put the baby in a cart!

 

Also, with spring/summer babies... baby wearing when it is hot in the summer is not that much fun and sometimes baby will prefer to have some space in the stroller... especially on a hot/humid NYC summer day!
