Would You Leave Your Baby in a "Parked" Stroller?

Would You Leave Your Baby in a "Parked" Stroller?

It's common practice in Europe (the Finnish government even advocates outdoor naps year-round), but in much of the US, parents would shudder at the thought of "parking" their sleeping babes outside of a shop or cafe. Or so we thought . . . in the stroller-friendly neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn, the practice of letting sleeping babies stay put appears to be on the rise. We've spotted several trusting moms asking friendly-looking strangers to keep an eye on their babies while picking up a quick cup of coffee or dropping off dry cleaning first hand.

What do you think? Would you let your lil one rest outside while you ran a quick errand, or is it worth disrupting a nap to ensure that they're safe and sound by your side?
