You can hardly believe the horrible dream you had last night about your hubby going to a dna center for paternity test information, so when you wake up, you tell yourself that youâ€™re going to give yourself a breather by going shopping that day. And then you realize that itâ€™s just you and the toddler at home, so youâ€™ll have to bring little junior along if you want to go ahead and shop to your heartâ€™s content. Shopping with kids is never easy, so here are some tips to help you along:
Get one of your girl friends to go shopping with you, so she can help look after the kid as you try out a cute dress inside the fitting room.
Use a sturdy full-size stroller so your little one has enough room to move about. Plus, youâ€™ll have more space where you can stash your purchases.
Take your toddler to one of those play areas inside the mall. Heâ€™ll be sufficiently entertained as you stop to take a break from shopping.
Timing is everything. When youâ€™re shopping with children, donâ€™t go during mall-wide sales. He might be stressed out by all the people and noise. Besides, it will be difficult to weave a stroller through the crowd.
