  • I've had 3 kids and never had one.  I have another one on the way and since I haven't needed one yet, I'm guessing I can live without one, lol.

  • I can understand someone wanting to use one. As they are putting their child in a publicly used cart. However, I'm not that paranoid to believe that my child is going to contract something from a cart. As well, I think that they're just a hassle.

  • I think they're a waste of money. For the few months that they're useful, you can use a baby blanket, your jacket, etc.

  • i love mine! yeah its kinda a pain but it has toys on it so it keeps her busy so it makes shopping easy!!

  • I just use her blanket. I never forget it and it doubles as a cover for BF.

  • I use it about half the time. Ours has little soft toys, so it helps to distract her some.
