A Turn for the Better????

Last night I got Luke to not only tolerate our new wrap/carrier but he fell asleep in it. I was shocked. Absolutely shocked! Of course he screamed bloody murder when I tried to take him out, but hey, it's a step in the right direction. I got a Moby wrap - this long piece of fabric that I wrap around myself and pop him in. He actually seems to enjoy it. The next step is to try to go shopping with him in it.

I have to admit, I kind of like the fact that he wants to be close to me to sleep. I'm relishing it now because once he's a hulking behemoth of a teenager he won't want to be in the same room with me.

I used to nanny for a little girl who was just three-months-old when I started...she LOVED being in the baby Bjorn(sp?). It made getting things done a lot easier...until she was a hulking 20 lbs at 10 months.

Pants - Tried the more structured carrier first - he SCREAMED his head off. That, and I needed an engineering degree to figure out how to put it on. I got the cheap-o Snuggli, a Bjorn might've been easier.

Maureen - I'm getting the hang of it!
