    Default Do you use a pram or a stroller?

    I have just discovered the "stroller" and I just can't believe how much more easier it is, plus DD just loves it.

    So I am contemplating selling my pram because its not used very much, but I am worried ill regret it. I have been offered good money for it.

    Can someone please explain the difference? Why ppl still buy prams if the stroller is easier? Should I sell my pram and buy another one later on in life "if" I am blessed with #2.

    Are you a stroller or pram person? Or both? Is there much point keeping both?

    Thanks

    If you're really happy with your stroller, sell the pram.
    Personally, I hate strollers. I find they lack padding and support, the baskets are usually too small and hard to access, the wheels are too small. I'm considering downsizing, but will only go as small as a compact pram ie. agile

    I like our stroller when we go to a shopping centre, but for outdoor walking its just too bumpy and not smooth. Stroller stays in the car.

    I love my stroller. It is so much easier to manouvre. I can't put DS2 in it though so either have to use the double pram or the carrier and stroller which I can't do if I need to do a lot of shopping.

    I have only used the pram a handful of times with DD2, I find the stroller easier or the Manduca even better - no crying, 2 free hands, stairs are no problem - I really hate the lack of access with a pram/stroller. I am going to sell our pram, it just isn't getting used.

    I have a cheap stroller for quick trips to the shop, etc. Pram is for proper trips out or to the park etc.

    I got a stroller when she was older, but used a pram before that. I had one of those lazy kids who had to be booted out of the stroller at age 4... (I didn't drive so we walked A LOT... so it made sense to have one for sometimes because she still napped).

    It was still a somewhat pricey stroller though. Because it was used often, it had to meet certain requirements. I didn't like cheap strollers.

    I have a pram that's used for proper walks or outings, I don't feel the strollers offer enough support otherwise.

    For quick trips I use my carrier.

    We use the stroller for indoor shopping trips and the pram for longer outdoor trips.
