The Pros and Cons of Strollers at Disney (or any place really)

Strollers at Disney

  Strollers!  I actually listed strollers as one of the 10 things you can leave off your baby registry and got a bunch of feedback from my readers.  Some of you agreed with me while others disagreed.  I wanted to take a few minutes and talk about strollers and some of the pros and cons of using them at Disney or anyplace you are traveling to during your day. My family has never been a big stroller family.  We don't live in a town where we can walk to the town.  The only place I could walk to would be around the neighborhood - not really all that exciting.  We're not big shoppers or mall rats.  We did have a stroller that we got when my first was born but it sat in the garage for almost 10 years and was only used about 10-20 times over those 10 years.  When my kids were little we tried to travel with the stroller and we did venture to the mall a few times.  We quickly learned that the big stroller was not right - for us!  We did however use our cheap umbrella strollers (we ...

Back from Vacation

Yes, I've been on vacation!  My Twitter followers have followed my adventures with my family at Disney this past week but I wanted to share a few fun things with everyone.  Cloth Diapers and Traveling:  We didn't have a washer or dryer so we took disposables to Disney.  This made me very sad but it was very stress-free.  One day I'll try to travel with my cloth but I have to be able to wash them.  Breastfeeding:  In honor of World Breastfeeding Week...we have a long way to go to educate people about breastfeeding.  You would think at Disney World, a place for kids, breastfeeding would be easier than it was.  The parks have these great baby care centers where you can nurse but they are not always where you need them.  There is only one center per park and the parks are huge!  I ended up breastfeeding in some odd places and got quite a lot of different reactions...including the one mom who made her family leave the bench I was sitting on while breastfeeding (PS...I was not exposed ...

Day 14: Gotta Love Baby Wearing Daddy’s


Giveway Alert!!  The Eco Summer Blog Party might be almost over but the giveaways are still going strong!  Be sure enter the contest below to win an Ergo Baby Carrier from La Stella Blu.   ECO-ngratulations Erin!  You are the winner of the Ergo Baby Carrier from La Stella Blu. Why did it take us so long to find baby wearing?  We have a 6 year old and we pushed him in the umbrella stroller all the time.  I had a carrier but didn't love it.  It was complicated and uncomfortable and ugly!  6 years later they are certainly more hip and trendy!  I am now the proud owner of 2 Hotslings, 1 Dittany Baby Reversible Pouch Sling, and now 1 Ergo Baby Organic Carrier and I love them all.  Honestly, I use every single one of them. The pouch slings are great for wearing around the house or on short outings.  The members of my family (husband, mother, sitter, etc) have all used them and it usually ends with a sleeping baby!  See my post last week for a cute picture of her asleep in the ...
