Gah, I can't even imagine! I can barely even take my two grocery shopping and like the post mentioned, I do it with snacks. The only way to keep my kids still and quiet is with food. Good luck!


One mom I know of took her stroller AND got a cart and just scooted slowly around.

Personally, I think I would put the baby on front in a moby wrap or ring sling, the 1 year old on my back in a mei tai, and then I'd have a free hand for the older two on the way in. Then I'd put the 3 year old in the cart seat and either let the 4 year old walk, if s/he can behave, or in the basket.


When I was expecting my third baby, my older two were 2 and 3.5 years old and I sometimes babysat for a 6 month old and a 1.5 year old in my home. I took them with me on a couple of grocery runs. I put the 2 and 1.5 year olds into the double stroller, wore the baby with a gypsy wrap (kinda like a moby, so was stretchy and worked with my prego belly) and had my 3.5 year old walk holding onto the stroller and be my helper to pick up things that were on the lower shelves. Yes, I got lots of strange looks and comments but I got the job done! I could only buy as much as would fit in the under stroller basket which kept me focused and from over spending.

Good Luck!


When mine were 0, 1 and 2 I just got the groceries delivered. I couldn't handle it! Now the two older ones can fit in the kind of cart that has a racecar/train attached to the front and the little one fits in the regular spot...


wearing one or two of them, and snacks are great ideas too! i have taken my two under two in the double stroller and it has a big enough basket underneath for the things i needed... i say practice!! and be clear with older ones, what you expect of them as well. even offering bribes like m&m's if they are super good for the trip :)


I only two right now, but they often just walk along with me and neither sit in the cart (2.5 year old and 17 month old). Now, we only do this during non-crazy-times at the store, so not on the weekend and not between 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. when everyone is running through Publix for their dinner fixings :)

They do exceptionally well and the threat of being made to sit in the cart "like a baby" (that's what my 2.5 year old says, lol) keeps them in check.

When the next one comes along in June, I'll just wear him!


Thanks for the link up. :)

Unfortunately we had a crazy ole outing last night and I wrote about it (and now my girls are 4 and 7.) YIKES. Thankfully nine times out of ten we go to the store and return and it's relatively fine.

Hopefully I won't freak anyone out too badly. Tee hee.

Iam not able to believe this..I can barely even take my two grocery shopping ....


Hi! I have 5 ages 9,7,5,3 and almost 1. Now my three oldest walk through the store well (though not always willingly,) but when it was just the four, I put the baby in a sling, next youngest in the seat of the cart, and the next youngest in the big part of the cart. Oldest gets to walk and be the helper, getting things off shelves for mom! Get a handled shopping basket to put under the cart and put as much as you can in there. Not much room, but you can put a few things next to your child in the cart! I try to avoid having to take all the kids, but sometimes it has to happen :)

I'm tempted to tell you to wait to buy something like this until you actually have the kid and you can test them in the store to see what your baby likes
