How is a mom able to juggle the carseat, stroller, and shopping cart all at once? This was an issue that I have faced for the past year whenever I have gone out with my twins by myself. Even once they started sitting up, I couldn’t put them in a typical shopping cart because most stores don’t have the option for two children.
Enter the MOMMY HOOK. It is an extra-large metal carabiner that has a foam cushion on part of it, and it can hold just about anything! In the example on the packaging, it shows that you can hold grocery bags on it, and that’s a fantastic use for it. I personally like to have two of them to better distribute the weight on the back of the stroller. It’s also perfect to use for the shopping baskets- whether it’s one handle or two, you can easily attach it to the Mommy Hook and be ready to go. In addition, because it’s metal, it’s super-strong (and won’t break like some hooks).
Just to show you how great these are, when I was shopping, I had two different people approach me and comment about the hooks and how I was attaching the basket to my stroller. I was thrilled to talk about it (and even more shocked that they didn’t stop to talk about my monstrous stroller or my twins, as normally happens)!
The only downfalls that I have found is that sometimes it is awkward to clip onto the stroller, just because my stroller’s handle is so bulky (I have the BABY JOGGER CITY SELECT DOUBLE). In addition, when the foam cushion scrapes up on the rubber floor mat of my car trunk, it can break down the foam leave a colorful trail behind it. Again, I think this is because of the weight of my stroller and the pressure put on the Mommy Hook itself, and not a flaw in the design.
