2 Toddlers and a to go to the zoo by yourself with them? lol

You know the toddlers won't want to walk for too long..they will get tired. The baby,of course can't walk.
How does a mommyhandle this situation???

  • A double stroller and a sling?

  • I wouldn't. I don't feel like I could keep an adequate eye on them in such an open space so I would wait until my dh or someone else could come with me. When my 3rd was born, her brothers were 18 months and almost 4 (and he's special needs) so I've been there.

  • I would take a triplet stroller! or a double and a front carrier for the baby! Or, a wagon!

  • Oh geez... that sounds like a very fun, frustrating time! lol. I only have one toddler and have a hard time at the zoo with her! I went with my cousin to the zoo one time with her two toddlers and she brought a wagon to sit them in. Perfect idea, it worked wonderfully! I think they make triplet strollers or you could do as another person said, a double stroller for the toddlers and a sling for the baby. Good luck!

  • A portable cage,, LOL,, this would be more than I could take on! I like triple mom's idea! I would think it might be a very long day!

  • I bet you had a good night sleep before you took those 7 to the zoo! I had an in-home preschool and did stuff like that all the time. Now the thought of just my 2 and being prego makes me cringe. The change is lack of sleep!

    As for going if you can just rent a double stroller when you get there and def take a sling! You can do it!!!

  • I wouldn't. Why would you attempt this?

  • You stay home.

    Answer by prettyinink2011 at 3:48 PM on Feb. 23, 2011

  • aww...I can't keep them at home! They want to go to the zoo too! Where there is a will..there is a way,lol.
    I'm not worried aboutnot being able to watch them or care for them or anythign like that..I do that on a daily basis. I just am not sure as to how I would get them around..I was thinking sling and wagon..but th ewagon would work because what if the 2 toddlers wanted to fall asleep..that would be too comfortable. So I guess I will have to invest in a double stroller.
    Only one of the toddlers is mine..the other one I babysit.
