I'm sure this has been done many times.

I'm thinking about it today though grin

If your child is too big to want or can't fit in the seat part you don't then let them climb in the other part of the trolley?

Filthy dirty feet where I'll put my food.

Standing up (dangerous)

I'm not being unreasonable to suggest that its the seat, or walk right?

I saw this with several families yesterday...it got up my nose wink

Oh and I know there are germs everywhere... this makes it worse

I know discussion moved on, but sitting ok, standing definitely not. DD1, then 3 going on 4 stood in ikea trolley. Trolley hits little ikea pencil on floor, brakes hard, DD1 pitches head first onto concrete floor. Much howling, a bloodied nose and none the worse, but could have ended very badly. She still occasionally goes in, but never ever standing. Has to get out immediately if she gets off her bum. Problem is there's not enough room for the shopping, plus she can access it all...

Hello there,

We thought this might be a good time to link to our This Is My Child campaign.

Myth 1 ('Behavioural disorders are a fashionable excuse for bad behaviour and poor parenting') and Myth 6 ('You can always tell when someone has a disability') might be particularly relevant.

Thanks

My dd always use to sit in the shopping part with the shopping all around her. She was too big to go in the the baby seat and she kept running so I used to sit her in with book or toy.

Thanks for that HQ, and for the deletion.

Isn't this nice and civilised? smile

The last thing I heard on this earthly plain was 'Sharon, clean up in aisle five, and six, and seven....'

<judges The Ghost of MrsDeVere for shopping in Asda>

Not what I'd expect from a UKIP voter.

(Sorry, I can't help it, that comment has amused me all afternoon)

Put some chilli seeds in his shower gel from me.

I have to say I kind of forgot about that MN campaign, and I am glad to have been reminded

I couldn't give a shit about trolley issue either way, but sometimes its good to have a little "injection" and reminder.

Chylesi-mae, snurk
