At what age would you stop....

I have a 2 year old that I didn't really use a sling on, but am now to the point where I see that it would be easier, especially when we have to do our grocery shopping. My question is, is she to old for a wrap or sling???? I know that this has got to sound rediculous!!

  • No way I would carry my 2 year old around like that. They should be running and walking

  • They have those ones up to 35lbs that sit on your hip. Thats an option.
    I know it isn't popular but I use a harness....aka a leash

  • She may not like it since you have not used one before.

  • Toddlers should have freedom and walk around. I couldn't imagine carrying my daughter on my hip she would go insane.

  • shes too old, teach her to hold hands don't walk her like a dog like nicoles2lilrams suggested.. those leash should only be used for disabled kids, people with twins or more, or in large crowds..

  • I always hold my child's hand when he is using his harness BTW... it is just an added level of safety for when kids dart away like they do or if you need to reach into your purse for something or any one of the millions of reasons a mom might need two hands for a second ;)
    I am never yanking or tugging my kid around or being pulled around by him like a dog lol
