  • I did everything with my babies. I EBF and if I couldn't take them somewhere I didn't go.

  • Well he's not a baby anymore. But most times I take him. But there has been a lot of time where he didn't want to go, or I just really needed an hour to myself. =)

  • I have always taken my son with me. Now, since he is a little older, sometimes he does not want to go, and would prefer to stay at home with my husband. But, this has only happened like twice in the last year, lol. So, most of the time he is with me!

  • I don't have a choice during the week so they both are with me. But on Saturday's I can sometimes escape and go shopping by myself and my husband stays home with the kids.

  • I take my youngest everywhere with me, I've been doing it since he was a baby (he's 2.5 now). He's a great shopper!!

  • When he was a baby I would but in the late 2's and early 3's it was miserably so my hubby took care of him while I shop. Well that was if I went grocery shopping but just shopping just to shop then I would not even care to go on my own. I don't like going out alone.

  • When my daughter was under six months old, I let SO do major shopping, like grocery shopping, and opted for smaller shopping that I could do with the stroller.

    After she could sit up, I didn't mind other shopping.
