Kids in trolleys - some things I saw in Tesco!!


The other night in Tesco I spotted a few things that kind of made me go :-0!!

The first was a car seat that had been placed in a trolley. This wouldn't have been so bad...except it was a girl of about 2, in a 1-2-3 car seat (why would you even take that out of the car??), which had been placed in one of the little shallow trolleys!!! It looked like it would just fall out!!

The second thing I saw was a baby car seat (a group 0 one with a small enough baba in it, maybe 4-5 months) which had been put up on the front of the trolley. Except instead of a trolley with the cage for the carseat, this father had put the car seat ON TOP of one of the little blue seats you strap a baby into. How did it even stay up there??? I was a bit horrified I have to admit. There was another child in that trolley too, what if he'd given the carseat a shove (accidentally or otherwise)???

I'm not that bothered by kids in the trolley (if it's one of the proper deep ones!!) but I think that's cause when we were kids there were 4 of us so not enough seats for all of us lol!! (mostly we walked but little legs do get tired. But if there isn't another child in the front seat then it's just silly having them in the trolley!!).

Thats a bit crazy... I put car seat in one of the small, shallow trollies sometimes. The car seat trollies in Tesco now are just so old that they just shake no matter how smooth the floor is! Poor LO's cheeks were vibrating last time! Maybe thats why the guy chose to do it.

I also think that shop staff are too scared to contront people about these issues as well. I mean we've been up the travelater before with baby trolly (not meant to) and at least 4 staff went straight past us. But its health and safety right? Surely staff need to say something... but than its the whole "do it at your own risk" mentality nowadays isnt it.....

Although me and hubby had to rescue two toddlers from near injury when they were left unattended in the trolley and it falling over!

My SIL put my nephew who was 2 at the time in one of thetrolleys, not in the seat and he obviously got curious when she looked away and fell right out of it and banged his head on the floor! So now when I see kids in trolleys it just puts me on edge!

My toddler stands in the trolley all the time. It's where. He's happiest and he's always in and out helping me with the shopping. People just need to do their own thing, why does it matter !

In Sainsburys a few weeks ago I saw a woman who had put a baby who was too little to even hold his own head up at all horribly propped up in a regular trolley seat (the pull out bit for much older children). He looked so uncomfortable, like he'd been dumped in there like a stuffed toy. Made me shudder.

I have put my toddler in the trolley on a handful of occasions as it avoided a complete meltdown meaning I could do the shopping quicker. I was happy, she was happy and other shoppers didn't have to listen to a toddler screaming.
