My DD turned 3 in March and we still use a stroller when should we retire the stroller?

We use her wagon as much as we can these days. We use the jogging stroller when we go to the mall and Amusement parks/Zoo if they won't let us to use her wagon. Just in case she falls asleep or get tired of walking.

  • I would say once they reach the height/weight limit on the stroller or 4 years old. DD turned 3 in May and we still use the umbrella stroller sometimes.

  • I think it's ok to use the stroller for as long as she NEEDS it. Naturally you don't want you 7 year old in a stroller. But she's just 3. I think you can use it for as long as it's safe.

  • We don't have a stroller, I hardly ever used one with either of my kids. But, when we go somewhere (zoo, fun park, mall) I rent one. Usually a double. My kids are 7 & 4

  • Both of my son's stopped using a stroller before 3... I wish they would have used one a little longer but they were not having it.
