Like Dannielle they were a lifesaver for me with my twins too!
The pram was just a nightmare from 2yrs as they would scream and scream and scream.
I bought them pink monkey backpacks and they loved them, also just put the strap over my wrist.
Couldn't give a toss about what others thought, they were runners and their safety is much more important than a strangers opinion.

Re: Backpack reigns
I would and I did, but dss was a cheapo and broke,
We used it when we went on a 4 hour train ride, I liked feeling like I had a safety net at the station

I've had two bolters; usually I use a stroller but when I can't we get out our monkey backpack. DS3 adores it. I ask him to hold my hand though, I don't like leading him around on it. It's more a backup for when he slips his hand out of mine and runs!

DS was a runner. He ran whether I chased him or not (but the chasing made it more fun for him and made him run faster). I have been managing it for nearly a year now and it's been bl00dy hard work but thankfully he's showing signs of losing interest in running now.

Re: Backpack reigns
I used then with dd1 and I fully intend in using then with dd2 when she is walking. I don't care what people think. I lost dd1 a couple times at the shops. She would run and hide. So I left that shop with a brand new set of reigns. I would rather have piece of mind than care about being judged. The oldies used to congratulate me on being so brave using them.

I bought a pair from mother care and they were awesome! Only because they had two attachments one for like a long rein and one was tiny so they can be clipped to the side of the pram the side of the pram one came in awesome for teaching DD to hold onto the pram and in crowded places she would stay close
