I need some advice, I have a 7 month old girl and she hates being contained in anything! Including her stroller which means when we are out and about half the time I end up carrying her and pushing the stroller! I’m looking for advice on front pack brands, she loves seeing where she is going so she has to be able to face out front. We had a cheap one but it was hopeless and I get quite a sore back, so it needs to be really supportive and easy to get on to! Thanks, Jess.

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • Sounds like a typical 7 month old, they tend to want to get busy at this age



  • good luck – some kids are uber curious. My son was similar, and I feel your pain with the height of the strollers. It is also important to get one that lays flat. I find it upsetting seeing young ones all curved over and sound asleep.



  • mydaughter too. she screams so much when we out her in her cot



  • Fingers crossed it was just a phase that was short lived.



  • Hope you found the advice you were looking for.



  • What about attaching toys to the pram.



  • What did you end up doing?



  • hope you managed to find one that worked well for you



  • You could try a baba sling. There’s no age limit, many people continue to use them until 3 years of age and beyond..
