One newborn, one 20 months and one 3 nearly 4 ..... Will I ever leave the house again???? 3 year old has delays and 20 month old runner and head strong. I like to get out the house but I have to go by car everywhere due to where we live..... I just cannot see it being easy and I feel a bit home bound ...... When does it fall into place? Laughing now to myself that I ever thought one was hard getting out!!!

I found that you just have to do it. Sometimes it's hard and other times it's a breeze.
I found it easier when DD wasn't mobile. I had a Phil & Ted's that I used to strap in the younger two and the eldest was old enough to follow instructions.

Some days are better than others! Try only doing short trips to start with where you don't absolutely have to get something done. That way you can engage with them them the whole time. Do you have a double pram? On days when I know the bolder boys are going to be difficult that I put them both in the pram with an iPhone/iPad and ds3 on my back in the ergo.
It does get easier! Mine are 4.5, nearly three and nearly one now and we are out most days. Have lots of snacks/drinks (aka bribery). Good luck!
