    Default Petty stroller dilemna

    We are expecting a bambino mid January. I was all set to treat myself to a new stroller when I made the mistake of looking up the 2010 fabrics. Now I want a 2010 model.

    Children's Furniture Gallery is the only local retailer and has given me the spiel about not knowing at all when the new models will be in stock lalalalalala. Early Jan, late Jan, Feb, anything is possible etc etc.

    Do you think I'll actually need a stroller for the first month or so? I'm pretty sure the answer is yes but I'm trying to convince myself to hold out until the new ones are in stock...

    See, petty

    could you borrow a stroller from a friend until your 2010 model comes in?

    Get a sling in the meantime! IME newborns hate strollers, love to be carried. I don't use mine much anyway but certainly not in the first 6 mos, I probably used it like once.

    What about getting a carseat and a snap and go stroller? You can get them used for $50, and resell it once you get your stroller.

    how much walking do you plan on doing jan-march?

    I was fairly house bound for the first 3 months, occassionally taking DS out for a walk. HOWEVER. would you consider baby wearing inplace of the stroller if needed (for say mall walking and grocery shopping)....?
    A son can charm himself into (and out of) most things

    DUH. Of course. Baby brain! It's not the same brand so the infant seat won't snap in but I think I want to wait.

    Thanks all -- just needed to think this through out loud

    We didn't use a stroller at first.

    def. a sling/wrap. baby is much happier imo too, and at that age they weigh nothing so you can carry them all day np!

    I will only say that with DS#3 I bought and sold 6 strollers over a 10 month period. They sell well on Kijiji.
