      Hi Annmarie here sorry i haven't participated in any
      chat recently but i fell when i was taking my daughter
      to the toilet when i was in the house myself and
      bruised my hip so i was in hospital for 10 days and
      only now recovering and back to work.

      Do any of you who have children who find it difficult
      to cope/handle them as they get older and you cant
      carry them anywhere. Because i walk with crutches i
      have to hold her by the hand and try to wobble to the
      toilet with her. (she is 2 in May). Any tips in
      making my life easier or useful advice would be
      appreciated.

      On a happier note i hope everyone had a GREAT NEW YEAR.

        This may not be an option for you but I'll throw it
        out anyway :) Could you possibly use some kind of
        rolling chair in the house? Like an office chair?
        When I was pregnant I decided I needed an electric
        wheelchair in order to handle childcare by myself (up
        to that point I had used only a manual chair). It was
        the best decision, for me, that I have ever made.
        Now, I am not suggesting that you need an electric
        wheelchair but you may need to give up a little of the
        walking with her at least while she is a toddler since
        they are not very trustworthy to not run off. Also
        another option for you may be a "mommy leash", you
        know, those things that attach to your wrist and then
        either attach to the child's wrist or they have a
        harness.

        Let me know if any of this helps :)

            Thanks Karen for your advice it is worth considering a
            wheelchair as right now i cant keep up with her and
            noone trusts me on my own with her in case i fall and
            hurt myself.

            I checked out the web page you mentioned and its great
            i am just about to study it some more and i would
            recommend it to anyone else who has the same problem.

            Thanks again

            Annmarie :-)

              AnneMarie, did you figure out a way to handle your
              toddler? I remember back awhile you had written about
              having trouble keeping hold of your daughter while
              walking with crutches. Did you find something that
              worked for ya?

              Just curious :)
