My 19 month old DS doesn't want to be in his stroller when we go somewhere and wants to walk around. He won't hold my hand though so DH said to get him a baby leash. I don't wanna..lol. Should I get him one or let him whine in the stroller???

I have one that looks like a puppy backpack for DD. She's the same age as your son. It works and she loves it! Keeps my hands free... I usually take the stroller too though if we're going to be out for awhile in case she decides to stop listening...

I used to thing they were a terrible thing to have. But, when you have multiple children to care for it's all about safety. We bought one for our 2 year old because he also hates to hold hands. It has worked out great for us.

i had one that i used for my son when he was about that age...it looked like a monkey and i never got any negative comments about it.  in fact i actually had alot of people asking me where they could get one lol.

They have backpacks...my ds has the monkey and I love it! It also has a pocket so I can pack a snack or a favoite toy.

I hated them until I has Nicholas he's a runner. I can't tell you what a lifesaver our monkey on is.

You can find them at Wal-Mart for less than $20.

I always told the kiddos they had to hold my hand if they wanted to be out of the stroller, when they started to fight me about holding my hand....they went back in the stroller. Eventually they got the point, lol
