I remember when I was younger seeing the occasional mom using a leather harness that wrapped around a child like a harness does a horse or dog. My mother really disliked them and I have to say that they are not that appealing to me either. It’s probably for that reason that I have never used one. But what about you, what’s your take on kid safety harnesses? Safety harness is probably the name they give them to make them sound more civilized than a leash. After all we leash dogs, possibly cats, not people, right?
Here are some styles of safety harnesses that I found available. Please let me know if you have used any of them and if you found them helpful or not. They seem like a very inexpensive piece of toddler/child equipment.
So as cute as the backpack is and as handy a Tommi Guard would be for sets of multiples, what do you really think about putting your child on a leash? I see the safety reasons behind it, but I still don’t think I could use one. Is it just me or are there others out there that feel the same way?
If you have used safety harnesses, do they work and how have they benefited you if they do?
