    Default Please tell me this is a 'stage'!

    Today is the absolute last time I ever take my 15 mth DS to the shops!!! It seems like everytime I even step in the door the tantrums begin. The problem is he wants to walk (run) everywhere and trying to keep him in the pram/ trolley is a nightmare! I am hoping he gets over it as bubba # 2 arrives in 3 months and I would love to be able to take them out in the pram together! Hubby works away so if I had the option I would leave him home with him. Please tell me they grow out of this!!!!!!

    Can you give him something to keep him occupied while he's in the pram? I usually give DD something to eat (like cereal puffs or cut up fruit), and clip stuff to the pram like those buggy books or little Velcro-on toys. Then basically get in and out as fast as I can!

    i've seen plenty of kids like this. could it be they are excited that they are in a big shop / and walking/running now, and just love feeling free?

    Yes! They all do exactly what yours is doing now and thankfully it is a stage and it does pass! good luck tho until it does, keep him occupied and try get him involved by giving him a thing to find for you.

    Have you tried a harness? It may help . Also keeping "pram only" toys may help. Keep a small box with toys only to be used for pram outings and use a different one each time so he's not bored.

    Could you try letting him stand in the trolley? This is what we do with DS. I'm sure people tut tut us because it's probably not super safe but he thinks it's great fun.

    Thanks for some reassurance that this is normal! Have tried the standing in the trolley but that ended badly!! Might invest in some new toys that are for pram only and see how we go!

    My DD is the same age and has been anti pram since 11 months, when she began to walk.
    She loves to explore and is learning so much everyday I think she just likes exploring and discovering new things.
    Maybe you could timw your shopping trips for his sleep time if he sleeps in the pram or try online shopping?

    I have no solutions sorry just wanted you to know I understand how stressful it can be.

    Go to a park first and wear them out - then the shops. But pack heaps of food, toys and games. I would take DD to the shops and let her run around like a lunatic. Then when a bit tired pop her in the trolley and give her lunch in there whilst grocery shopping.

    Or there is online shopping. Good luck. Been there - done that whilst pregnant too!!
