    I agree I wouldn't have left my bub unattended. No way in heck.
    Totally agree!

    TBH I probably would of taken my business elsewhere.

    I find that really weird. If he was that strict he should have offered you some help and ran to get you a bottle of wine.

    On a side note I used to park my pram outside our local store all the time. Was heaps easier than navigating it round the store. Bubs would sit and people watch and I know that the owner would stop anyone stealing him. We live in a little country town though - and everyone knows everyone else.

    I can see the point... they're big and clunky and could easily knock bottles of wine over. Trolleys are at least mostly see-through so you can keep a bit of a closer watch on if you're going to hit something.

    I agree that he should have just gotten you what you wanted though.

    I would shop elsewhere tbh. I wouldn't be leaving my child with a stranger at the counter!

    I just avoid going into shops with narrow isles all together- no point trying to squeeze my big pram through.
    I would assume that I would take DD out of her pram and carry her, but then again if it was a small shop (which it was, from your description) and I could still see her I wouldn't have been too concerned by leaving her strapped in her pram near the counter for a minute.
    Maybe the store has had a few too many instances of prams knocking bottles over? I wouldn't be too fussed by it tbh OP.

    Agree. I hate using a carrier they feel like **** on my body. So I will just not go to that store
