Pros and Cons of Carrying, Buggy, Bike, Rucksack Carrier, Car?
Pros: It’s the quickest way to get around if you’re on foot and it also means you can keep them dry under a cover if it’s raining.
Cons: Once they’re at the toddler stage they don’t want to be strapped in for long and if you let them out you’ve got a buggy to push plus a toddler to keep control of!
Carrying them in your arms
Pros: If you’re just nipping in somewhere it may seem like the simplest solution.
Cons: You may think that you’re only going to be two minutes but if you get stuck in a queue it may be a lot longer. You’ll either end up with aching arms or you’ll lose your spot when you have to chase after them!
Pros: It can take a while for them to get used to walking (calmly) by your side but once they master it it’s lovely to take them for a stroll hand in hand.
Cons: Toddlers are unpredictable creatures and you never know when they may make a dash for something and catch you completely off guard.
Pros: If you need to travel a good distance then a car is the only option. Their little legs will only manage for so long.
Cons: It is hard to keep them entertained when they’re inactive so their favourite CDs and books are essential.
Rucksack with safety reins
Pros: If you need to keep your youngster under close control but want to let them walk then this could be an option.
Cons: These are much less popular that what they used to be and people can feel uncomfortable about restraining their kids.
Pros: When you’re off to the park then this is by far the most fun way of doing a circuit.
Cons: They can be surprisingly pricey so look out for a sale or make it their birthday or Christmas present
