i'm in this camp.
i feel completely incompetent pretty much all the time. it's a wonder we get fed & bathed around here some days. the first day on my own with just the two of them was a real eye-opener. now, i'm getting a little comfier, but really i don't eat or nap on those days, which is a real problem, i think.
i agree with sonja's plan - taking it an hour at a time. some hours are better than others.
i'm really dreading a few weeks from now when dh starts travelling again. i...
oh dear - lemme think! 2 birthday parties - 1 in a park, one in a residence with lots of strangers (so i count it as "IP") ... the beach, the grocery store, trader joe's, my ds' preschool parking lot, the container store, every restaurant i've been to in the last month, doc's office waiting room and the farmers' market. that's all i can think of right now.

lol - see other thread today on similar topic! i was just typing - i ordered a solarveil (taylormade) sling and i've been told it's quite lightweight (someone just said "breezy"). my hotsling is fabulous, but just too, too hot lately.
and fwiw, i don't really care about taking baby out of the sling in just a diaper & cover, but i don't like putting him in the carseat without a shirt or something else so the straps are not directly on his skin.
oh! if you're having trouble snapping them and don't mind the diaper/cover hanging out (i mean, if it's a practical matter rather than an aesthetic one), you can get onesie snap extenders, which give you a couple of inches more length. (does that make sense?)
