I have a Maya wrap and a Moby that I've been using for my 4 week old daughter. We use the Moby for going for walks outside. Baby likes it, but all that fabric gets kind of toasty in this weather. She's been spending a ton of time in the Maya, at least 5-6 hours a day. I LOVE babywearing. This is my first baby and being able to wear her feels wonderful and helps give me some freedom.
Before I gave birth, everyone was like, 'oh, you won't even have time to brush your teeth or make lunch!' So babywearing feels revolutionary...I am not trapped sitting in a rocking chair all day.
My baby always falls asleep immediately in the wrap. We went to a wedding reception this afternoon and she slept in the wrap for 2 1/2 hours. Other guests at the wedding were amazed and asking about the wrap. Not a lot of mothers here do babywearing...so we were kind of a novelty.
I am curious how much other new moms wear their babies? Is it possible to wear the sling too much? Is it okay if baby is sleeping most of the time she is in the wrap? Will this start affecting her night sleeping? She currently sleeps in 2-3 hour chunks from midnight to 8 am, which I'm happy with.
What are some other kinds of wraps or slings that we should try?
