Now that HTC & ACM are walking, the more we can leave the buggy at home the better. Seen as the boys are happy being on their feet we’re encouraging them to walk – and are teaching them the safety side of things whilst we’re at it. Last week, I picked up a Littlelife Toddler DaySack popped a nappy, some wipes and sunscreen in it and off we went round the garden on his new lead!
HTC was perfectly happy – he wriggled a couple of times to try and see what was behind him but soon forgot it was there. I know everyone has their own opinion on reins and leads but for me it’s a little bit of extra security. I looped the lead over my wrist leaving me free to hold his hand properly, walk with him and teach him safety whilst out and about but I know that if he does pull away from me he isn’t going anywhere as I still have the loop.
After our stint round the garden we have used it everywhere we have been. He knows it’s his wee bag and carries his own snack if we are out and about for a while.
