    go to the loo, answer the door etc?
    I put Oscar in a little umbrella buggy in front of a dvd as it seems the safest place, he is into everything at the moment and even in a playpen I can't trust that he wont bump himself....

    it makes him cross but I don't know what else would work - he is quick as a flash and despite my constantly trying to think ahead what mischief he could get into he seems to find things (bits of tape I hadn't noticed etc)

    just curious what others do...

    He either follows me or stays where he is, depends what mood he is in. It is usually him who gets to the door first, he opens the letter box looks out and tells me who it is (if he knows) lol

    yeah i just go, most of the time hes comes along too, but if not he stays where he is or wanders between the living room and bath room or pplays peekaboo around the bathroom door etc.. ( we are in a flat so no stairs) i used to take him with me though. if he stays where he is or is otherwise out of my sight i talk to him while im going , lol. but can usually tell by listening what he is upto :)

    most of my bathroom trips are accompanied by Brody and the dog, no such thing as privacy around here :)

    hmmm...most people don't have giant babies like me then! lol!
    I'd collapse if I tried to carry him with me everywhere and as for tryng to go to the loo with him in tow - it would be messy.

    chloe comes with me! and she is a very heavy a baby, but I'd rather have carried her (don't have to now) than leave her, she can't be trusted!

    Going to the loo I put him in his cot. Answering the door it depends on what he's doing and if I'm expecting someone. If it's just a random knock at the door I take him with me as I don't know how long I will be there. If it's someone I know is coming and he isn't trying to be clever (i.e climbing on the sofa or his toy box to get the TV or DVDs or currently trying to give me kittens by pulling on the xmas tree) I will leave him in the living room while I run and answer the door

    I used to take him with me. But now he just tends to follow me where I go if he wants. If door knocks he dives there first, even gets post before I do. As for loo I ask him if he wants to come, if not I shut kitchen door(only one he can't open) and fly upstairs and back down again, I have a gate so he cant follow me when i'm not watching. But like alot of other mums said he just tends to follow and play where I go.

    When he was really young I used to fasten him in his car seat if I took a shower etc, or things that took a lil longer.
