My Ds2 never went in a pram; I didn't even own one. It wasn't until he was at least 18 months old when occasionally he would go in a little umbrella stroller, this increased as he got to 2yo++. I carried him everywhere and LOVED it.
As for the nappy bag, I just made sure I got a nice one, one that didn't look 'mumsy', so that I could carry that all the time too and it kinda looked like an oversized handbag.

also i have a ktan sling and love it! use it all the time as its so comfy and easy to use. it will need to be upgraded to a more structured carrier when they get bigger though. i carried DD2 in it until about 6/7 months, then into a stroller. her baby brother is a bigger bub so i might not get that far and am looking at buying an ergo.
realised havent answered question.. i think yes, a stroller (rather than a fancy pram) is useful.

I pondered this when I was preg with DS. I had him and was armed with wraps, slings and my ergo.
He was, from day ONE an independent little so and so. haha. Would scream hysterically being worn in any way shape or form, from day three went into his own bed *sob* and has let me cuddle him approx 5 times. Ever. He is two next week.
My ideas of co sleeping and baby wearing were fast put to rest. (I did manage to feed him until 12 months though, he wasn't winning that battle haha)
So unlike most parents I know whos prams gather dust in the garage while their little people are carried or walk, my wraps have been pulled out every few months just in case he will let me, but don't even get a look in!!
So out I went and spent a fortune on my pram. Well, two, the phil and teds for walking and the bugaboo bee for shopping. He walks a lot now but still uses them
I am crossing EVERYTHING this new bebe will be into hanging out with me a little more haha. I hopefully wont need a double pram!!!

I brought a pram but DD didn't actually start using it till 2. I did use it a few times to store my stuff while carrying DD.

Thanks everyone for your replies I really appreciate it. It seems its varied with every bub (of course!) so I'm going to start out with a lightweight stroller under $200 and go from there!
Theres actually one in the BIG W catalogue which is similar in style to the Stokke, bub is up quite high. But has a basket underneath, so I might try that

DS hated the wrap until about 5-6 months old, by which stage he was too heavy to wear for long periods -both DH and I have bad backs.
I've also used the pram to rock him to sleep many many times and his grandparents still do when he goes there.

As I said, I have high hopes for this one

Well DD is 6 weeks and we haven't got a pram yet! We haven't really needed it to be honest, we just wear her a lot. I wouldn't mind getting one but she's a snuggler so unsure how she would go in one anyway!
