i'd be honest that i do take the escalator when using the stroller. i'd only do this with a single umbrella stroller though and never with my jogging stroller or pushchair (travel system),etc. it's easy to say "use the elevator", but sometimes the elevator is broken or there isn't even one...so, the only choices are staircase or escalator. or a lot of the time, i see perfectly healthy people going into the elevator that i've been waiting for (even when i had to use the double stroller) and closed the door before i could even go in.
if i've the choice, i always use the elevator cause i always get paranoid with stairs or escalator. i always make sure i've good grips and fully aware...i don't talk to anyone and concentrate.

Wow. I'm glad to hear the baby is okay. As a little kid I was deathly afraid of the escalator. My parent's always had to use the elevator. I guess it was a good thing!
