Strollers are right on up there at the top of the list for must get items when you find out you’re expecting your first child. Just how long will you be using a stroller though? Our girls are 4 and 1 and yes, we’re still using a stroller with them.
REASONS WHY WE’RE STILL USING A STROLLER
- Safety: It’s a place to have both our children and know they are safe. Often we’ll unload our youngest out of the car first and get her secured into the stroller and then move around the vehicle with the stroller and get our oldest out. We know exactly where our children are at all times then.
- Rest: Our youngest is small and while she learned how to walk before one, those little legs do get tired. Even our oldest gets tired when we’re out and about. It’s why we love when strollers have a board or second seat option. For everyone one step we take as adults are kids may be doing double or triple that. When we are going out and know a lot of walking may be involved, the stroller is definitely coming with us.
- Storage: We love being able to go out and about and have a place to put the diaper bag or to put items we’ve just bought. The basket under the stroller has also been used for grocery shopping instead of lugging one of the carry baskets provided by stores. Our stroller has seen everything from rain gear loaded in it to picnics for outings at the park, it’s a key storage place when we’re going out as a family.
- Extra Seat: There’s the odd time we’ll be somewhere and we cannot find a highchair, or they are all in use and we use our stroller as an extra seat. The bonus is it has buckles that aid in keeping our youngest seated. A feature we often look for in a stroller is can it roll up to a table.
If you see us out and about you just might spot us with a stroller still and that is fine in our books.
