    Default Houdini strap

    My DS Has started pulling his arms out of the straps in both the car seat and pram. I was thinking of getting the Houdini strap that clips to the staps and holds them together. can anyone that's used them share whether it's worth it - do they work? Thanks

    Oh I need one of those. Didn't know they existed. I wonder how long it'd work on a 2 year old?

    Yep, worked with DS. He eventually stopped trying and I was able to take them off again and he never tried it again, so I've kept it to use with DD if she ever tries to escape her straps.

    I put one on DD's pram at about 12 months old and she never undid it and it seriously saved my sanity, and possibly some serious accidents (I recall having to grab her by the shirt when she just popped up while crossing a road). My sister got it for me from either Bubs baby shop or Pram warehouse.

    No, that's not it. The houdini strap is a little clip that you put on at about chest height and it prevents them being able to get their arms out.
