Turns Out We’ve Been Putting Our Children In Shopping Carts Wrong All Along


We often go into raising children blind because none of us have much experience doing it. Then again, we were all children at one time to parents who did not have experience and things turned out okay for us in the end.

Through it all, there are many things that we may do on a daily basis and we don’t really give them much thought. One of them includes putting our children in shopping carts but are you doing it the right way?

Ask any parent and they will tell you that it can be hard on the back when you are putting your children into the shopping cart and taking them out. That doesn’t need to be the case.

Lauren Castrillo, a Texas mother of three wants to share a unique shopping cart hack if you take care of small children.

Lauren shared this on a popular Facebook page and she learned from her stepmother.

“My stepbrother, whom I help take care of when my parents are working, has some disabilities, and my stepmom discovered this easy way of getting him into the shopping cart when he was younger.”

“I’ve been doing it with my own kids for about 2 years now, and it has made shopping with them a lot easier,” she added.

The trick was first shared in private but they asked her to make it public so others could learn from it.

The post went viral quickly and has well over 2 million views and 40,000 shares.

“While it may seem silly, the comments I’ve seen from parents who hadn’t known about this little trick have really been great. Moms with special needs children who are heavy but need to be in the cart, moms who are in the final stages of pregnancy and have toddlers that can’t be left to walk around in the store, and grandparents like my mom who are disabled but love spending time with grandkids in any way that they can.”

This is the trick:

Don’t lift the child into the seat, lift the panel on the cart and let them crawl in on their home.

“Do your part to make a mama’s life easier by sharing this,” she wrote on her post.

Many people had a hard time believing they didn’t think about it before.

“Why did we never ever think of this before!!” someone wrote, tagging their wife.

“I never thought of that! I feel so dumb. Lol,” another chimed.

There are also those who disagree with it being a good idea:

“But that’s not where the child’s allowed to sit…” someone pointed out.

“Where do the groceries go! You have to make sure they don’t stand up. Many stores in my area won’t allow it. It’s much better than them running wild,” another questioned.
