I will openly admit I love our backpack harness. DS is 18 months old and fiercely independent but have some issues processing verbal commands/redirection when overly excited. As in he really and truly can't process it so he tries to retreat at times which means running away. His harness lets me let him safely walk and explore in areas where him running away could risk his life. I do have to say though he loves to walk on his leash with my husband while I walk the dog on his leash. Look at this kid on his leash, it's the best thing for him and he willingly puts it on. In fact he will grab the backpack to have me strap it on to communicate to me he wants to go walk. He seems calmer and more in control on it as well so the meltdowns don't happen nearly as often. Win win for all!

If it keeps em safe- heck yea!

We have not used ours but I have one. The minute I get worried, running off, whatever- I'll use it. I'm not going to try things that may or may not work and then see what happens. Nor am I not going to buy groceries.

Couldn't make it through all the posts, but here's my 2 cents:

I used to think they were horrid, and then I had to fly alone with my 6 mo old and 2 year old. The thought of trying to run after a 2 year old in a crowded airport while dragging luggage and wearing my baby was too scary. I bought and used a harness, and any concerns about what others thought didn't really matter.

This website jokingly suggested you attach the baby mop kid to a leash and swing her around a bit to clean your floors.




Sounds like more work than mopping.

Bah, don't need that. Just put a rolling/crawling baby in a fleece sleeper and let them have fun. Peel sleeper off them and throw in the wash.

*whistles innocently* Of course I've never done that.....
