    Default Do you get your kids out of the car to pay for petrol?

    I really want to know what others do.

    I only have one toddler at the moment (15 months old) and I do get him out when I go in to pay for fuel. But I'm having #2 next year and I'm curious to know what everyone else does. It'll be a struggle to take a newborn and a 19 month old in with me. I know there are plenty of mums on here with twins/triplets... how on earth do you do it??!

    I don't even know what the law is with regards to this but I'm guessing you're not supposed to leave them in the car. But what is everyone's opinion?

    This has been done a gazillion times and often ends in tears. Search for previous editions.

    I don't.

    It's up to you. If you want to leave them in the car because it's easier and they are happy to be left there, then go for it.

    If you do a search you will find there are a few threads floating around on this potentially heated topic.

    And no, I don't take the baby out of the car. But I do chose to fill up at either my local, where the guy puts petrol in for me - love that! Or at another small, never too busy servo.

    I do and it is the law I know in the US and I think it is here (stil learning your laws) even if legal I would. Unless I have my 16 year old in the car then maybe only take the baby and leave the 16, 13,11, 5 year old in

    I have NEVER seen a baby/child inside a petrol station.
