    Im at a bit of an akward stake with Noah, where unless he is being pushed in his buggy he wants to get out and walk about, but is too young to understand wating in ques and staying with me. So if I pop to a local shop in the car he wants to pull everything of the shelves or disapear out the door!

    My mum and Gran suggested the other day to use reigns, which Ihad never really thought about, can you still get them, dont really seem to see them about, has anyone else used them and had them work? I just think that he wont understand and will just lie on the floor and scream to be 'let off' What do you think?

    Definitely get reigns hun. I had them for Kayleigh and they were a god-send. He's young enough now that he'll get used to them pretty soon, and then when he's older, you can change to a wrist strap. I'm sure Mothercare sell them.....

    I tried some today on eva and she wanted to walk into a butchers and when i tried to get her to walk the other way she kept trying to kneel down. I ended u picking her up. dunno - maybe its something they need to get used to. I suppose its a little bit safer having something to grab onto if you need to.
    mine are from boots x

    See I think Noah will do the same, if I try to get him to go a direction he doesnt want to he just lets his legs give way and sits on the floor, I have visions of me using him to sweep shop floors lol!

    Like you say Amanda perhaps if I try them out a few times he will get used to it. might get some and try. Its just hard to hold his hand all the time, cause sometimes he wont let me, and other times Im trying bag up shopping, or pay etc and dont have a hand free.

    Let me know how you get on over the next couple of weeks Vic.

    I got some from tescos. Seren loves her reins - she hates being in her buggy so I let her ealk about. She usually takes my hand but the reins are a godsend. When she is in a mood then she refuses to walk where I want to go and we have the hanging on them bit, or the collapse on the floor - so I pick her up and bung her in her sling.

    Here she is with them

    Noah sounds very much like Ella, she wont stay still likes to explore she's into everything and hates being in her pram most of the time, Iv used reigns for a while now, we went to Chester zoo on sunday and they were a godsend, I know shes there, without the reigns if I turned my back for 1 second she's be gone. I'll post some pics in the photo gallery later. xxx

    Hi,

    Not an expert but have seen an alternative to the reigns, you can get like a hand cuff on a chain, which you attach to them, and yto your belt, arm, etc.

    Hope you get something, we didn't really have major prob's with Jade! Maybe our little boy may be more of a monster!
