Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

 People who uses strollers as a way to steal out of stores messes it up for everyone else. During Christmas season my mom and I were out shopping with the baby and of course I had my stroller. I tried going into Areopostale but was stopped at the door and was told no strollers were allowed. Then yesterday I needed to go to the grocery store. I don't have a car so I walked to the one closest to my house and when I got up there I was stopped by a big ass sign that says no strollers allowed. I was beyond frustrated that I just walked up to that damn store for nothing.

I would have turned around and found a different place to shop. That seems so fucked up!

I agree. I love having my stroller when I'm at stores or the mall or whatever. I can't carry him around and shop at the same time.

 Yes they are because in the long run it causes in an convenience for people like me who doesn't have a vehicle ( I drive my moms car sometimes but it's hers so I don't over use it) that's trying to grab a few things. I don't want to have to carry my daughter and bags of groceries!

Wow! I've never heard that! People are ridiculous.

I would invest in a wrap or front pack.

The only place we've been that didn't allow strollers was the rainforest cafe in grapevine Texas. They allowed ours those because I wasn't about to take up three seats with medical equipment lol.

 I don't have am umbrella stroller but because I do encounter places that don't allow me to have a stroller I have thought of buying one.

Quoting mariesmama:

our dollar store only bans strollers that actually have a kid in them collapse an umbrella stroller  and put the kid in a cart and its ok!

Stores around here have those signs up too. Thankfully, because I have twins AND a toddler they usually let me take my stroller in, they just check the basket on the bottom when I come in and when I leave, at one place made me leave my diaper bag up at the register.

That hasn't happened to us yet. But there are so many signs at the DC zoo that has that signs for indoor stuff... Which is so stupid. Why would I want to leave all my stuff in the artillery to look at animals.

Why don't you try a Moby wrap or an Ergo carrier? I prefer them over strollers.
