Anyone not bothered with a carry cot?

I aim to mostly use a wrap when the baby’s really young and as we drive, I can’t see much point in a carry cot? The baby will not be in the car seat on the pram for anywhere near two hours at any point - literally for nipping out the car somewhere.
The prams I like also recline completely back so are suitable from birth - although I don’t love the thought of the baby being laid down in the stroller style when they’re tiny.
I don’t want to waste money on a whole travel system if it’s not needed. Anyone else not got much use from the carry cot?

I wouldn’t have been without ours. DD had all her daytime naps in there until she out grew it at about 4 months. She hates slings/carriers though and much prefers to be put down to sleep so it was a life saver for us. I think it totally depends on the baby.

We have an icandy peach so the carrycot is included - we used ours instead of a moses basket and DD slept overnight in hers until about 8 weeks as she wouldn’t sleep in her next2me crib (she was so tiny I think she felt lost). It was also handy for taking to relatives’ houses for naps until she was big enough for a bouncy chair.
However the icandy carry cot is massive so she still fits comfortably at 20 weeks with plenty of growing room. Others brands (uppababy etc) she’s have grown out of by now.
We also have a stretchy sling and ergobaby carrier, we just tend to use what is easiest for each situation.
