    When did you do this with your LO? & do you use hand bands or reins?

    I've looked around at different types of reins and I noticed they said 2+

    we have reins for lilly but she much prefers her little harness buddy which is like a cuddly toy back pack with a strap on it so you can hold onto them - in saying that Lilly is very good and holds your hand which is really nice :)

    I'd definitely go with reins as you can kinda hoik them up before they fall over or grab them up when she goes for the full on laying down tantrum because you just walked past the playground. :rofl:

    Good luck!

    rhys used to have a harness but now he holds onto the pram/holds my hand or goes on his buggy board

    before ffion was born i used to walk to morrisons wih rhys (down the side of matalan, over the carpark then under the bridge) because i couldnt take the pram to morrisons to do the weekly shop. i found he didnt like his harness too much and liked to hold my hand, i would bring the sling incase he got tired walking etc

    when the kids go to nursery ffion goes in the pram and rhys holds my hand or holds onto the pram

    Kaya's been going out without the pram since she was about 1. But she's now going through a wonderful phase of running in the opposite direction from the way we want to do, or lying down on her back in the middle of the street!

    This is what Bethanie has and i've used them for a long time (before she was 2). We don't use them that often to be honest, I usually hold her hand but she likes her reins and asks to take them out sometimes. I feel a bit like shes a dog on a lead, but it's better than her running in the road when we're out shopping.

    :lol: sabby!

    I haven't taken Colton out walking on his own.. mainly because he's not overly fond of shoes :dohh: He hates walking in them and he's DEF not walking anywhere barefoot(or with socks.. he always has socks on)!!
    We dont usually go out for long shopping sprees or anything though.. so might get him to walk next time!! He's like 30lbs, and I carried him around the other day to exchange some shoes :dohh: my arm was numb by the time I got back to the car! And my back was about to breakoff of my lower half!

    I've been taking Aaron out for walks for several months now. I usually put reins on him but prefer him to hold my hand at least some of the time so that he gets used to holding my hand for crossing roads, etc. We go for short walks around the block or walk down to the local corner shop, in which case I take the pushchair so he can ride in it on the way back. It takes about three times as long to get anywhere though! He also loves running around the park or the beach, as then he doesn't have to go in the direction I want!
