We do use a stroller occasionally with DS now, we used it maybe a dozen times before he was 1 and half of those uses were when we were at Disney World for a week.
DH did find the stroller semi-useful once DS turned one though when he took him and the dog on a walk around the lake, the carrier worked, but the problem with it was that the dog's leash tends to get caught on it, so it was just easier to use the stroller. We've also found it useful now that I'm pregnant, I can only back carry DS for about an hour now, so being able to use the stroller is useful now.
That being said, would we have had a problem if we didn't have a stroller at all? Nope, with the carrier we have enough options that we don't need a stroller, there are just times when it is a bit more convenient, just like there are times when the carrier is more convenient.
That being said we have no intention of getting a double stroller when bean arrives, because we figure we won't use it, we figure she'll be in a carrier for at least the first year and if we really need a stroller for her, well DS loves to walk anyways, so he won't be using the stroller that much anyways, and he can always be carried in a carrier as well.
