I thought these were *out*

Sat. whilst shopping at Colorado Mills w/ dd2, we saw a couple with their just under 2 looking dd in a harness/leash get up.

Re: I thought these were *out*

  • Oh, I had DD in a leash/harness for a period of time.  It works to keep her from dashing off.  At that age, she didn't understand that it was dangerous.

  • I used those once with my DD. When she started clotheslining people at the mall, I knew then it just wasn't going to work with my child. I like the idea though and I'm not above using it. I'd rather get criticism than lose my child.
  • Yeah, I had Noah in a monkey backpack thing with a tail that I could hold on to. It allowed him to walk around in a more public place without running off or getting lost in a crowd. Otherwise he would have had to stay in a stroller.

  • I'm not sayin' I don't like them...I had one for my girls for all the same reasons but you know how old they are. 

    I just hadn't seen any for a verrry long time and was a bit surprised.

  • D you need to have another baby so you can be up to date on all the new fandangle baby trends...such as the $20 teether. Stick out tongue  

    Seriously, my youngest will be 3 in Sept and I already feel like I know nothing about raising babies.

    So true, I couldn't believe all the new fangles stuff that was available between my girls (3y4mo).

    I saw someome with the monkey one mentioned above at City Park Jazz on Sunday.  I was a little surprised too but I guess I understand the need to maybe use one in a crowd like that.  The sad thing is that there were so many people with their dogs on leashes that I saw the kid get tangled up with a dog on a leash while walking in front of us.

  • My mom had one of those for my youngest brother (I'm 6 years older) because he had a tendency to run off/get lost, and my mom wanted to make sure he couldn't get away in public.  I still think they're a great idea.
  • After managing the amusement park at Heritage Square one summer, I'm a firm believer in leashing kids.

    When DS2 was 2 1/2 and DS3 was born, I frequently had to leash him to something.  I started after he ran out of King Soopers and through the parking lot (during evening rush) when I was loading the kids into that car-cart.

  • DD has one, a pretty pink backpack. 

    We only used it once, and that was at a Rockies even when all mayhem was going on, and she really wanted to run with the big kids but I didn't want her getting lost in a sea of kids.

    I don't have one yet but plan on getting one for crowded situations.  B. likes to run off and I think he would actually like an animal backpack.
