I used a snugli harness then a Scootababy hip carrier most of the time. Very rarely used a stroller, and took it on the subway only once or twice. And you don't need a car seat in a taxi (by law that is) but many people use the Snap and Go stroller attachment for their infant car seat, so I guess you could use that in a taxi if you're good at strapping the car seat in quickoy. Sounds like a PITA though. How far do you expect to travel with baby regularly? [ Reply | More ]

that's my point, every time you gain one thing you have to give up something else, so you really just need to decide what is the important thing. For example, our family values family time, so we live in a small apartment so that we can have a short commute, and we work at lower paying jobs so that we can all eat together as a family. Other people would hate that combination of choices. But those are my priorities. The question of whether people love what they do--I think there is a range. [ Reply | More ]
