With Dd3 on here way I've been thinking wat to do when I need to bring Dd1 to school.
On my one it's just a 5 min walk, but with my Dd2 (2y6m)it can take a bit longer :).
Dd1 comes home for lunch at 12 but that means whe have to walk 4 times a day! My Dh works in shifts and brings here most of the time, but there will be enough days for me with al 3 of them.
We have a very large pram and Dd2 can sit in there with the baby but I'm afraid she might not want that every time and there are no straps to secure here. I have a Manduca but would like the option of putting the baby in the pram for a nap, have lunch with the other two and just bring Dd1 to school whitout having to wake the baby. And I don't think I'll be able to cary Dd2 any time soon :giggle:
How would you this?

How about a buggy board? DD2 can then hop on and off as she likes

My Dd2 has a bit of a mind of here one :roll: . I don't think she will stand on a board if she has decided she doesn't want to and I want to avoid a screaming toddler on a school run :giggle: . Don't mind at home but not so much if I have limited time.

You dd sunds similar to Ed. I wouldn't trust him on a board. I tend to let him walk and then if he starts throwing a strop or misbehaving I throw him on my back in a piggy back and tell him to hold tight or hell fall off. I then gently let go so that he has to calm down enough to hold on ;)
It sounds awful but in a few minutes he's calm.enough to walk againor if he's tired then I put him in the wrap.

Thank's for your idea's ladies. I guess I will see how it goes when the time comes and hope Dd2 will have less interest in all the plants, birds, cats on the way :giggle: .

Is staying at school for lunch an option? With 4 journeys I think I'd struggle.

If its not I'd have baby in pram, toddler on back (ergo in our case) and school age child walk.

Have you got a pushchair too? I would probably sling baby, put pre-schooler in the pushchair and then get school child to walk

Schoollunch might be an option, I do like having here home for lunch. I'm still a bit new with the :bw: , how soon after giving birth have you been able to carry a (13kg) toddler?
