Too old for a stroller??

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So its a nice day out and I need to run to the store for a few things. The store is about about a mile away. I was thinking about taking my stroller to put the bags in but only putting my LO in it if she asks to be put in it. She is 3 1/2. Is she too old?

No. If she fits it's fine.

I don't see a problem, go for it.

Me, personally, I wouldn't let my son get in the stroller. 2 miles is not that long of a walk for him or myself, I know he can handle it.

But, if she isn't used to walking then go for it.

depends on size I guess. I really don't see a big deal. I would do whatever you want to do. Its your kiddo :)

If I need to go somewhere fast or walk a long distance ill take my stroller and put the kids in. I'm faster walking then they are...

Who cares how old she is? I still put my 4 yr old on the jogging stroller to go running/walking. Kids can't always walk as far as us.

My ds is almost 4. He wouldn't sit in a stroller. He would walk the whole time, but I think it's a good idea to bring it to carry bags!

I don't see how that is to old. If you think she'll get tired on the walk than take the stroller in case she wants to ride.

It is all up to you. My youngest is 2 and doesn't use a stroller anymore however when we go to the state fair I am still bring the sit and stand. I bet my 5 yr old will even get tired enough to sit in the back of it!
