My little Elle is a sweet girl. She (for now) listens to mommy and holds my hand when we are on the street and isn't crazy fast so I can't keep up with her if she gets away. Yet, I'm contemplating buying a LittleLife Toddler Daypack that comes with a leash. They are adorably cute backpacks in costume themes like a turtle, shark, dinosaur, giraffe, clown fish, butterfly, bumble bee and lady bug that also have a themed hood.
Why you might wonder am I thinking of putting a leash on my LO? Am I some horrible helicopter mom that won't let her child roam?
Actually, I feel the opposite. I feel by giving her this little backpack that just so happens to have a leash on it that I can let her roam at a safe distance without hovering. The pack isn't that big but I think it will be useful for a snack and her sippy. I also think this would be great to have in the airport when I won't her to get her exercise without worrying about losing her. It could be good for holding her travel gear in that instance.
What are your thoughts on leashing? (BTW, I hate that term!) I don't feel like I'm putting her on a leash...maybe I"m in denial.
