Re: Toddlers on a leash
When you have a runner, especially a special needs child, I think a backpack leash can be a handy tool. So far we haven't really used ours as DD2 prefers to use her stroller still as she can hide in it by pulling the shade down in overstimulating environments.
Now with #3 coming, I can see myself using one in situations where the baby needs the stroller and I need to keep track of DD2 (I'm thinking crowded mall situations, not just a walk around the block in our small town). I also just bought a nifty red handle made of soft plastic that attached to the stroller so your child can hang on to that while you walk. Hoping to have some sucess with that as I would prefer that to the harness at her age.
H...mom to three silly girls, 7, 5 and brand new!!!
Plus two dogs, and oh yeah, DH!
