My DD usually likes to hold my hand, but sometimes (typically when we're walking through Westfields looking at the shops), she will try to break her hand away from mine, but I firmly tell her to hold my hand, otherwise she can't walk. She protests, chucks a tantrum etc etc, but I refuse to let her run wild through the shops - at 7+ months PG, I really don't want to be chasing her
So if she refuses to hold my hand and continues with the tantrums, then I just pick her up and carry her. This usually means her lying across my arms, because if I try to carry her on my hip, she kicks and hits and protests.
I've also bought a wrist strap, but keep forgetting to take it with me when I really need it!
