We got a Allis Challmers WD a couple weeks ago. Got it running pretty good so the kids and I took it for a little ride around the block (4 miles) my 5 year old daughter loved it we seen 3 baby coons and my 2 year old son fell asleep after about 1/2 mile and slept the intire way. Wish we had the tractor when my daughter was about that age.

A stroll in a toy wagon (with pillows and blankets around her) puts our granddaughter (18 months) to sleep every time. We wheel her right into the house and naps for an hour in the wagon.

Hate to mention this but I just have to. Being full time farmers we have to practice safety and are also involved in 4H farm safety programs (my husband teaches tractor safety and organizes a "tractor rodeo" every year so that farm youngsters can practice safe driving). NEVER take a child on a tractor unless that tractor has a cab on it and a separate child seat with a seat belt. The newer tractors sometimes have a small seat to the side and rear of the driver, but you can also have your dealer install one if there is room. We have heard of too many accidents of children falling off and under a wheel, and even of a child, standing up inside a moving tractor with a cab, falling and knocking his head inside causing a serious concussion. We have five tractors two of which have these seats. We never take the children on the three that don't. Country living is not all sunshine, fresh cream and pretty flowers. There is always danger too. Be cautious please!

I try so hard to get my two year old cousin to sleep every day but she stalls and asks for things to keep her from falling asleepsuch as milk,crackers,soda,ect.It irritates me and it wastes up to two hours of my time.I want her to be able to fall asleep quicker and easier but I really don't know how.

Clint and Nathan- You've confirmed what us older people learned and have been scratching our head about ever since. Yep, load the kids up and go for an easy evening drive, and they ZZZ out quick like. Trouble is ours sometimes woke up when we got home and tried to carry 'em in and put 'em in bed... Good luck and lots of patience, IHank

Yeah, both my kids will fall fast asleep in the truck. But at home it's entirely different. My wife has a hard time with 'em. The doc says put in the bed and let 'em cry their self to sleep. We tried that with my daughter(1st child). After about 10 or 15 minutes of squalling, so were me and my wife.

Just please be careful with the kids on the tractor! It doesn't take but a second and their gone.
