i would say yes n no. when my girl was younger, she practically sleep through the journey outside in her stroller.. but if she is awake, she will fuss when stroller is not moving also. then when we are having meals, hubby will carry her with one hand while he eats with another hand cos i eat slower n i no such energy to carry her with one hand n eat with another hehe.
then.. now that she is older, she is ok with sitting n watching us eat when she is in good mood. when she is sleepy or what she will fuss also . so we have to carry her n eat also. so now, the most impt thing is to let her rest enough so we can have peaceful meals outside hehe
