Um, -sorry-, but that's nothing like what I said, so -no-, that's not my opinion. It's just hard to babywear w the baby being carried in a bucket IME.
My only intent was really to say to FTMs that examining the rest of your life and lifestyle choices can help you decide what may work best for you in baby gear-- that's all and nothing more.
If -convenience- (or really -any- other value) is a very important value to a person, it will likely show up in more than one area of their lives... food choices being just one of millions of possible examples... and baby carrier seats with travel systems -are- another convenience.
I'm truly sorry if you feel judged, as I do not judge you or your parenting at all.
Again...my only intent was to say to FTMs that examining the rest of your life and lifestyle choices can help you decide what may work best for you in baby gear-- that's all and nothing more.
I'm still not getting where the connection between car seats and strollers with convenience comes from? Can't we agree there is value in babywearing AND using a stroller for different needs and purposes? Like, babywearing is great for shopping and museums, but a stroller is nice for a long walk and when babies are older and LIKE to be able to sit there and look around? Or when you need to carry a lot fo thigns at the same time? Or, strollers are terrific for multiples or sibling pairs? Or for parents with mobility issues? Or for a pregnant mom who doesn't want to squish her unborn child? Are you thinking that carrying your child everywhere is a burden and therefore a sacrifice you're making for their better good? Personally, I found using a sling instead of a stroller to be much more convenient in many situations.
Also, just because someone IS into convenience for things like meal making at times doesn't mean they're going to "cut corners" when it comes to their parenting choices. Not at all. My babies were breastfed, for twenty-one and thirty-five months. They were cloth-diapered for the first two and a half years. But I buy and make and eat quite a few packaged foods *gasp!* and use a stroller some of the time. I also used a bucket seat, but only in the CAR, where it's intended to be used. My kids both napped on me after nursing, and slept in our bed or bedroom until just two months ago. Talk about inconvenient at times! LOL.
The point is, these things really aren't connected. We all have many factors that influence our decisions. Convenience might be a small part of SOME decisions, but it's not everything, and implying otherwise is pretty insulting.
