This pregnancy buying spree never seems to stop, after the feeding bottles, I have to decide which of these two is better, baby slings or baby strollers. For quite some time now, baby wearing seems to be the trend, maybe because of the influence of Hollywood celebrities too. I also find using baby slings convenient especially when I see mommies/daddies carrying their babies in malls while shopping. They don’t have to push their baby strollers inside crowded malls, just the parents, their baby slings and of course, their babies. I also read about the special bond established when wearing your baby. Another plus is the chic designs of fabric available nowadays. It’s also cheaper, around Php 1,000 for most slings, as compared to baby strollers.
However, some mommies complained about them and their babies perspiring when wearing slings and this is not advisable in tropical countries like the Philippines. I’m also hesitant on how much weight baby slings can actually support and carry.
Baby strollers are quite bulky but gives great support for babies. They can sleep soundly and comfortably even in malls. One disadvantage is that one needs to have a car in order to transport the baby stroller to places. Good quality strollers are expensive too!
Oh well, these all-things-baby dilemmas will still continue even after I give birth. I guess it’s because it’s our first baby so we have to start from scratch. I hope I can complete baby’s needs before our 4th wedding anniversary on January so that I can concentrate on scouting for Personal Creations anniversary gifts.
