do you use a double stroller, kid harness or just let them roam free?

we put stan in the stroller and dd will wear her harness usually but depending on where we are she sometimes gets to go without it. she has gotten a LOT better at trying to run off.

It depends on where we're going really, if it's somewhere where we will be doing a lot of walking, we usually take the double stroller, if it's somewhere else (shopping, walking trail, etc) I usually take the single stroller in case Rylan gets tired, soon though we'll have to take the double everywhere (when Sophia is born). Alyssa doesn't run off, so she can usually just walk.

When going on long outdoor trips, such as the zoo or the park, we take the double stroller. If going somewhere indoors I usually take the stroller for Olivia and wear Alayna.

Thank you so much, Kiliki, for my gorgeous siggy!!

depends on my mood and what I need to do or get; I can walk all four in by myself if I don't need my hands free, otherwise I use the double stroller for the twins, or use a grocery cart for the twins--the two bigs are great with walking with their hand on the cart or stroller-they don't run off, but the twins will run off if they can
if dh is with me we just walk everybody in

Lucky mother to five!

If its the school run, lucas is in the stroller and the girls walk.. i have a wrist strap for lacey which i make her wear near the busy roads etc.
If its town or an outing we take the double buggy.. it has a seat built onto the back where lacey sits

If we go any place that require lots of walking we take the double stroller. We have 2 double stroller so it just depends on what I want and what we are doing. Aiden can walk if he want to but I alway take the double stroller just in case.

I only use our single stroller if I'm walking to the local store and only taking one kid.

it all depends where we are, if we are grocery shopping and Craig is with me we just grab two carts and put Chase in on Brianna inthe other and Dillan walks if it is just me and the kids shopping Brianna goes inthe cart and I put the harness on Chase. If we are just walking around town, walking Dillan to school, the park ect I will bring the double stroller and put the harness on Chase and Brianna will go in the stroller if Chase gets tired he will sit in the stroller as well and Dillan walks or rides his bike. If we are just going around the block or to the park that is right across the street from us I will bring the wagon just in case someone gets tired or needs a time out and all 3 will walk. I have a harness for Brianna to but haven't had to use it much since she prefures the stroller most of the time...she might walk a bit but she likes to look at everything still so it takes forever haha ETA- if we are somewhere like west edmonton mall both Chase and Brianna stay in the stroller since it is really crowded.

99% of the time just a single stroller. Riley has been a good walker since she was 12 months and she followed us around the neighborhood treat or treating on Halloween. Nathan is so much better than he used to be, it's amazing how much time has changed his running away.
