I just bought one, for my two-year-old, you know, those things that look like leashes? haven’t had the opportunity to use it yet, but it seemed like a good idea. I know my child, and I know that if given even a split-second opportunity, she will bolt on me. She doesn’t like strollers, and really hates shopping carts. I can’t carry her, because I’m eight months pregnant now, and it’s very hard on my back. So is slouching to hold her hand.
I put this post in the GD forum because I know some people are very pro kid-leash, and others who are rabidly anti. I’d like to hear more opinions, and any info from those who may know more facts, like are they dangerous and why, etc.
