Absofrigginlutely! I have 5 kids my youngest is 18 months and I am also having twins. It's very difficult 2 run after an escapee toddler when your 9 mos. Preggo. I figured this out when I was preggers for number 4 and number 3 would get away from me. I was a single parent and really could have used one. My own mother could have benefited as well seeing as she was in a wheel chair. You never know what someone is dealing w/. When u see a child w/ a harness.

 Before I had my twins, I would say no.  Now, yes, yes, yes.

 Congratulations!  I just wanted 4, but ended up with twins this last time. :)  My older kids help, but it's still crazy.  My twins just turned 2, so it's getting easier.  I can see how a leash could come in handy.  I think it's easy to judge others when you haven't been in their shoes.

No but my kids don't need them. My friends kids are autistic and runners so to keep them safe she has to have them on leashes even though she does hold their hands.
