  • Actually, I never used 'em. As soon as little ones started walking well, they got to walk.

  • I never used an umbrella stroller. He had one that laid back and had no front bar...he used it from 1 until 5.

  • i put them in one as soon as they could sit in it properly. the big strollers only came in handy at places like theme parks and the zoo. for walks around the block or whatever i pack light lol

  • As soon as Ds could sit up and not wobble... about 6-7 mo, but my Ds walked at 9mo. I only used it if we were running through somewhere, like to the store or park. Anywhere I needed him to be comfortable a while (zoo, mall, parades, etc) he was in the big stroller.

  • Umbrella strollers are basically the only thing we ever used. You can very easily put the baby in there, they have straps and it also conforms to fit around them so they are snuggled. It's so easy to use too and so lightweight. That's what we liked about it!

  • after my daughter turned a year old... THEN.. I had another baby.. so I got a double stroller.. (her part is sit or stand, her sisters is more the car seat insertable or just the baby seat).
