When DS ws born, we lived in the city, and I found a wrap MUCH more useful than a stroller - there were so many things to navigate with a stroller on the sidewalks alone, it was a PITA. And then taking the T was a nightmare with a stroller because not only do you have to worry about finding accessible T stops, but squeezing the stroller onto the train would be difficult if you can't time your trips to avoid busy times...plus the height of the stroller puts the baby in a really vulnerable place compared with being snuggled up against you...kids I've seen on the T in strollers always look pretty stressed out...just some food for thought, I know some people will still prefer a stroller. Well, that and DS never sat in the stroller for very long, so then I would have to worry about carrying DS at the same time as pushing the stroller...not fun!
Oh, no, I meant moreso for walking around my neighborhood, doing food shopping, being out on foot (not on the subway) for a long time, going for a 3 mile walk around the park by me, doing a big shop at the farmers market that I walk to, CSA pick up, etc etc. I can see on a daily basis when I'm the train how annoying strollers are in the subway system. Thanks for the feedback on that though.
