Warning on umbrella (folding) stroller

I saw the label myself, on tv.
Warning on umbrella (collapsble, folding) stroller:
"Remove child before folding stroller"

I have to confess to be one of those folks who broke that rule frequently 25 yrs or so ago.
Baby is sleeping- so it is much easier to hold the top of the handles while 'breaking' the bar that holds them apart with the other hand while baby still sleeps in the stroller. There was a button that needed to be pressed to unlock the bar. Once you raised the center a bit,it would stay unlocked.
Then hold the baby in one arm, and while holding the handle in the same hand as your bag of groceries, [the same side that is holding the bag of baby-crap like bottles, diapers, etc] your knee can push that bar up to finish folding the stroller.
I hope they are better designed today- but I can see how a company might want to cover their ass by telling folks to do it differently.

Well this puts a whole new light on things.

Does your wife know you did this?
I thought you were going to tell me you just picked the baby up, wrapped in his partially folded stroller.

I guess now I can too.
My favorite warning is still the one on the Superman costume. "Caution: Suit does not enable the wearer to fly."

I don't get it. Are they saying 'no nailguns' or 'no hammers' -- or 'only use on roofs'? <EG>

Folding strollers?
*Folding* strollers?
You mean that I didn't have to keep buying bigger vehicles to fit those full size strollers in?
That double stroller was huge!

I think they make folding double stollers. Umbrella style.

I was kidding about needing the bigger vehicles.
Actually we did have a folding double, but it wasn't an umbrella type.
It was a double "long" as opposed to a side by side and each seat reclined. I think it cost me over $200 and that was 18 years ago.

But think how much your kids have cost you since!

Looks like a tank. It would be great for running down little children.

That makes it too hard to get them in the overhead storage when flying.

Sounds like good advice to me.
The alternative sounds somewhat counter-productive.
