My twins are really independent think its a girl thing but as soon as they could walk they no longer wanted to be in the pushchair witch was ok for nipping to the shop. I also have the added danger of cars everywhere wacky races in some cases so a safety harness on each of them was a must. The reason i choose the clippasafe harness was because it reminded me of the leather one i had as a child and the price was very reasonable. Clippasafe harness costs from £12.99 - £23.00 needles to say i paid the £12.99 from our local baby shop but the clippasafe harness can bought bought on loads of online shops. They come in navy blue or white leather i took the white leather sets and kept them the same or they fight. The harness has a cute puppy on the front of them and they were easy to put on my girls and well as the harness the leather rains were included. The harness is adjustable with a buckle as can the length of the rains, there is a loop on each side of the harness where the rains clip on. Although it is pure leather it is very soft and does not dig into the child. clippasafe harness and rains can be used from the time a child starts walking until you want to stop using them. My girls never felt restricted or like i was being mean to them, they actually ask for them on now as they know they will get to go out a walk or to the shops. Hannah and Jess didn't mind to much about getting the clippasafe harness put on and when it was in they were comfortable. I thought i would look odd as if i was walking two dogs but the girls actually held hands and i could hold both rains in one hand leaving my other hands free. Touch wood they have never run off or tried too but i feel safe knowing if they took my by surprise they couldn't go anywhere and i have the rains. These are ideal for children who don't want to hold hands with the adult of just like me a peace off mind. I have tried the clippasafe wrist strap and they were just awful but i highly recommend the clippasafe harness feels more human.
As soon as my daughter could walk, I went straight to the nearest baby shop and purchased this harness and rein set. I didn't want the worry of her letting go of my hand or wandering off. I felt she was safer and more secure wearing them. I know some people don't agree with them but I can't see the reason for disagreeing with child being safe. Anyway, these types of baby reins have been around for a long time. I remember I had a set when I was younger and my Mum had a set when she was younger too. They are a high quality item and made of genuine leather. The harness has proper buckles to adjust them harness and reins as your child grows. So these are quite long lasting and my daughter's lasted for as long as she needed them (sometimes I wish I could still make her wear them!). My daughter never complained about wearing them. When she was old enough to understand that she could walk instead of going in her pushchair if she wore them, she was more than happy to comply. We used baby reins on her until she was around 3 and half when she learned to hold Mummy or Daddy's hand all the time. I have never had any problems with this harness and rein set. They have never come off of my daughter nor slipped from her shoulders. They have never unclipped whilst in use either. They are very duarable.
This harness is worth buying for your own child, or as a baby gift for friends or relatives. It is very high quality, and is quite adjustable for any size of child. This design has been around for years and looks very nice. You will find the buckles on a leather harness much easier to adjust (for growth, heavy or light clothing, or other children) than the slides on a webbing harness. The leather harness is best used for walking. Start using one as soon as your baby can walk, and use it for every outing. A webbing harness is perhaps better for highchair use because it is more washable. We use harness and reins until after the fourth birthday. The shoulder straps sometimes slip off the child's shoulders, particularly when only a T-shirt is worn. If this happens, cross the right strap across the child's chest, and buckle it into to left buckle on the back waistband. Do the reverse for the left strap. Problem solved! Reins went out of fashion, but seem to be making a comeback. It is a good investment to have an adjustable, attractive harness.
