I'm just curious at what age your child only walked and no longer wanted or needed to (or had to) sit in the pram/stroller.
My ds (almost 3) is not a runner, however he is a 'toucher' and also gets tired during big outings.

My fourth hasn't been in a stroller at all since 12 months (currently 21 months). She walks everywhere (or has a carry, jumps in the trolley etc) and we're limited in distance/time anyway with three other little people. We mostly used carriers so none of my kids ever spent much time in a pram as they never liked it.

I reckon it's still a good idea to keep a slim, lightweight umbrella stroller in the boot of your car for another year - just in case. Their legs are only little and they get tired easily, bless!

I am curious about this. I think it depends on where you're going. Last year, when my daughter was in her first year of school a couple of the mum's would bring in a pram to put their kids in to walk home from school (5 year olds are TIRED when they first start school!) but these were also kids who had younger siblings so the need for a pram was already there.
I basically put my oldest in the pram when need be (very, very, very rarely) until she no longer fit...so about 5 1/2 (but I reckon I could count on my hands the amount of times she went in it from the age of 4).
My nearly 5 year old gets tired really easy so if the pram is free she hops in it still.
I can't wait to not have a pram any more but I think I'll have one around until my youngest is about 4.5 years old...most likely stop using it regularly by 3.5 years and just keep it for the times when you want to go out for the whole day and it will involve a lot of walking.

I have a 4 yr old and a 1 yr old and I only use the tandem pram when I go walking.

At around 3 my ds was starting to use it a lot less. By 3.5 he wasn't in it at all. He was (and still is) a really great walker and in the last 6 - 12 months in the pram it was only needed for really long walks, especially when he was tired. I was somewhat reluctant to get rid of it for some of those walks as it was a great spot to put things like food, jackets, shopping, etc and as soon as he was walking everywhere I had to carry all that instead!

I stopped using the stroller when dd started prep at 4 and a half. Though for big days out I will take it.

Jasper is 4 I'm November and still often uses the pram - though now more so for longer walks or when we need to get from a to b in a set time frame (like I take him in the pram to daycare but usually he walks home)
I figure probably before 5 years I'd think. But I do walk long distances. So maybe longer. Not sure.
