"Oh, we don't use a stroller. We like to have Myles walk as much as he can. It's much healthier for children to walk. If he gets tired or a bit cranky, we'll carry him for a few minutes, but then he walks again."

Ever look at those old pictures of Disneyland from the 1950's and 60's? Notice anything? No strollers.
Children used to walk around big amusement parks. Some children still do.
