Congratulations on the baby. Is it bad that when we had ours I was trying to figure out how early is to early to put a disc in his hand. Hes now Three and learning to throw a putter around the yard. I am looking forward to taking him with me.
I've had my girl out with me a lot already and she just turned three. At first, I'd just take her out there in the stroller, then got her out there walking with me, sort of, 2 year olds are pretty easily distracted. I had her out with me a few times this summer though and she did great. She would watch me drive, then try her own crazy flick shot and run off to find my disc. She liked slamming discs into the baskets as well like she was playing basketball or something. The last time I had her out was the greatest though as she was complementing me on every shot. "Great Shot daddy!"
The key is to keep it short, if they start loosing interest switch to something else so that they don't start having a bad time playing disc golf. You want them to associate it with good times, not torture being dragged around the course.
