I bought RB a harness for c. £8. Traditionally it’s for when he’s walking but this suggested also using it for strapping him into seats. And it’s bloody excellent. The strap is long enough to go around a train seat, so RB can sit in a train seat safely. This means I can sit in a train seat without using 95.6% of my focus on keeping RB safe by my side.
I still spend most of my train time entertaining him – my book is still pretty redundant – but now I can turn my head away from him without needing to stretch my arm / leg out in front of him in case he hurls himself towards the floor. One step towards more relaxed journeys. 👍
