Strollers

The 2u2 thread got me thinking...is anyone putting LO directly in the stroller vs the infant seat?

I haven't yet but have been thinking about it...

    I have a couple times. She enjoys it and has fallen asleep in it both times I had her just strapped in. She loves being able to see out rather than just up.

    Edit to fix typo

    I just asked my DH about this the other day! We haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure she would be able to and would like it. She sits in her high chair every night while we eat dinner, and it's not reclined anymore. Maybe we'll go for a walk today just to try the stroller.

    LO hasn't used his carseat in the stroller (bugaboo) for like 2 months now. He loves sitting up on his own!

    Yup- he goes in w/o the infant seat if we are going for a walk from home. If I am out with him he goes in the infant seat because it's easier
  • Options
    We haven't tried yet, but I'm ready to switch. You can't go back and forth very easily in our stroller, so once we take off the attachment for the infant seat, she will be forward facing for good.

    Yes I have a smaller stroller for when we are out shopping and he really enjoys being able to look around. Our larger stroller is a jogging one so we haven't put him in there without the seat.

    Unless K is already asleep when we go for a walk, I put her directly in the stroller.  She enjoys watching everyone.

    Definitely both in our reagular stroller and jogger. Both are bumblerides and they have a head rest part that helps keep him from leaning too far to either side. Both have car seat adapters but DS would much rather face forward and see everything

    I tried her in my sister's stroller and she liked ituch better than her own. She tries to sit up further when she's in her baby seat and she wants to look out.

    We switched almost a month ago and got cleared to even take him in the jogging stroller without his car seat, we just haven't removed the attachment on that stroller yet.

    Yes we have been for a long time he loves it so much more to look out at everything!

    I've been thinking about it because I'm sick of the stroller being so massive with the infant seat and the stroller...I think I'll try it this weekend, see how he does

    We only use the compatible stroller when we're driving somewhere, so I just leave her in the infant seat. She's been in the jogger (with no seat) for a few weeks, now.

    Mine has been sitting in the stroller for a while now too.  He likes being able to see everything and the straps on his Bob hold his head up pretty well if he falls asleep while we are out walking.

    I thought about it and went to adjust the straps on the city mini, was already a little stressed and gave up.  She's ready though.  I guess I'll give it a try again tonight.

    I'd put a Movember mustache fail, but then
    you'd all have to look at it until February.

    I have never used our car seat adapter bar. I just reclined the City Mini all the way and rolled up a blanket for head support. It keeps her much cooler than the padded car seat. We take the dog for long walks. She looks around, chats with herself or sleeps.

    I'm scared to try it. Don't they have to weigh a certain amount before you can do that? S is only 11 lbs now so we've still got her infant insert in the carseat...

    Yep, we started alternating with just the stroller around 3.5months old.  He likes it. 

    the only issue I have is that if it too sunny it is hard to keep them out of the sun like with the infant seat/stroller combo.

    We don't use the infant seat at all anymore. T hated it. He's been in just the stroller from week one.

    I use "the big girl seat" ;) in my Phil & Ted's about half of the time.

    Hmm.. I'll have to look into this. DS is about 15 lbs.

    M is 15 pounds and he's been sitting forward for a little while. He loves it, because he can look around. As long as neck control is good, our pedi said it was fine.

    I have thought about it only because one stroller my husband loves is not compatible with our car seat.

    Phooey, I should've thought to ask the pedi this when we were there on monday!
