I'm off to Florida in August. For my sins I will be (hopefully) 26weeks pregnant and travelling on my own with my 3 kids the eldest of which is Aspergic and may well flip out. My mum has kindly offered to kit out a backpack for each child full of things for them to do on the plane. I want a proper backpack for the three year old. Are littlelife the only options on the market aimed at this age group. he's got the build of the next England Rugby Scrum player so he could probably wear bigger BUT I like the idea of a the strap so I can have some chance of containing him in the airport. Are there any other makes. Are littlelife any good?
What I like about the ones with the straps is that they also clip the child in. It wouldn't take long my ds to workout how to shrug out of an ordinary back pack and leg it - probably just as my aspergic eldest is in full melt down .
None of mine have aspergers but agree that chest straps v.useful - also more comfortable for the child I think. I did have a littlelife one (not the animal ones) and I sold it on as it was so tiny and when you pulled on the strap ds kind of fell over
