about how trying out a stroller opened your eyes to a different POV without having to post a dang disclaimer "Sorry if this offends stroller using parents, etc. etc."
OP: once I got into the babywearing love with my 4th, I tried putting him in a stroller like I used to with my older kids... it felt SO weird to me!!! So I know where you're coming from.
FYI: when my sturdy heavy then 3yo DS broke his leg while I was 24 weeks pregnant, you better believe I used a stroller to cart him around. I'm only 5' and just lifting him onto the toilet, into bed, and into the stroller was probably more than I "should have" lifted him. I'm not anti-stroller. So you don't have to send me hate mail if you think strollers are the best thing since sliced bread.
Thanks, and thanks to the other ladies who piped up in a similar vein. I actually haven't been back to this thread in a while because I was like DANG, what a trainwreck, who needs this drama?
But I popped in and am glad to see a few people got my intention.
For the record, I'm not really "anti-strollerist" in any serious kind of way. I was describing my feelings after one experience, and was mostly feeling all giddy and "yay babywearing!" which I thought would be OK in the babywearing forum.
But as I said in my original post, I do think I'll be ready, and DS will be ready, for more strollering in the future- when he's big enough that he's hard to carry long distances, and mature enough that he's more psyched to check out the world and feels more comfortable outside of the safety zone of my arms. And I'll still use my stroller occasionally when needed, like if I want to go shopping and it's too hard to carry stuff and also carry DS. Did I not say that in the original post? Well, I'm saying it now. As someone said above, whatever works. Babywearing works for me and DS right now, 9 times out of 10. I'm sure this will change as time goes on- the only thing constant with kids is change, right?
