    I took the pram when DS was 2. He is 3 now and I still take the pram. He walks 90% of the time but it is there for him to rest/sleep. I found at 2 he did not walk much/far.

    My 3 year old is still in a pram for the same reason op. So now he gets no choice as everytime i give him a chance without it, i end up regretting it.

    Yeah, my daughter wouldn't walk much when out at that age. We usually took a stroller or used a trolley. She's 3.5 now and will walk for up to an hour without complaint (sometimes it's only 5 minutes without complaining...but she then copes after a brief rest or distraction and some whining :P).

    I put my almost 4yo in it last weekend in Melbourne. It was easier than her telling me every 5min she was tired.

    My 2yo is just starting to walk while holding my hand. He was a runner so I normally just use a stroller or carry him.
    He wont even stay in a trolley for very long.

    I thought I replied last night but it didn't seem to show up! Sorry ladies!

    Thank you everyone for your replies.
    I ended up going out and buying a stroller. Just a cheap one but its smaller than our other one.

    DS was an angel today at the shop. Happy to walk around (only a small shopping centre so I don't expect him to walk for ages)
    I'm still going to use the new stroller though. I know tomorrow he would be completely different lol I'll still give him chances to walk but for now I'll go back to a stroller.
    Thank you every one for your replies

    This is half the problem! He misbehaves when we give him the opportunity to walk (when he wants to) it's so frustrating.

    I get terrible anxiety about taking my 3.5yo to the shops too. There's ALWAYS a drama. He's confined to the pram because he can't be trusted. 😖
