I have a question for you all. I'm hoping you can help me find a solution to my new dilemma. MK uses a wheelchair as you all know. She cannot stand up or walk on her own, but she can hold onto things fairly well. Now that I've got the new baby, I don't know how to take both of them somewhere by myself. I can't very well push a wheelchair and carry a baby carrier by myself. So, I'm trying to come up with ideas. I tried to ask my kids. A said "that's a tough one." and walked away. MK said "I will carry baby!" (bless her heart!)
I have thought about getting one of the sit and stand strollers that have a little platform and seat attached to the back. I can snap the baby's carseat in like a regular stroller, and I think MK might be able to hold on and sit on the back...though if she can, she wouldn't be able to do it for a very long time.
I've also thought about a double stroller. Maybe even a double jogging stroller. But MK is starting to get a little big for strollers (she's almost 5) and the baby is very small.... I'm not sure how that would work. And MK can't leave the baby alone to save her life, so I'm not sure I want the baby with in her reach.
I've thought about getting one of those baby carriers that you strap to yourself so I could push the wheelchair. But then I'd have to take the baby out of the carseat every time.
So far, I've just avoided having to take them anywhere together by myself. But, that can't go on forever. Have any of you have experience with any of these scenarios? Do any of you have any other ideas?
