Carpet vs Rugs and hardwood

We are in the process of buying a new house. Currently the entire house is hardwood floors. Right now we have a 3 year old and are planning on having a baby in the next year or two. I'm debating weather to carpet the bedrooms or just get rugs. What are your thoughts?

    I have non carpet flooring through most of my house, mostly hardwood. I have an area rug in my living room for when my daughter starts crawling. I love the non carpet flooring because it is easier to clean up spills with. With carpeting, I have to shampoo and mopping it up is much easier and dries faster. Carpeting does keep us warmer in the winter but I like the hardwood flooring. I find it easier to maintain.

    I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
