I can switch her around pretty quickly in my wrap... Yesterday she had a fit facing out So I switched her to facing in, but once she's on a roll... I had to run home :
I have plenty of slings & pouches, and she does the same thing in them. I have a Mei Tai, same deal.
I haven't tried my ergo yet, as I don't have the infant insert. But she's so big now that she might be ok in it.
I had such a romantic idea that we'd have a great time going to all these places with all my cool carriers. Finally, she's more often in the stroller and we don't go very far from home. I don't like it when she has a fit, I really don't handle the stress well. Don't get me wrong, she's an amazing baby and way less trying than ds ever was, but I'm still a tad jealous of those quiet babies that can go everywhere in a sling with their mamas
Oh, I also wanted to tell you that I just put Arlo in the ergo with one leg hanging out and the other tucked froggy style inside....no infant insert necessary!
Oh no! Glad you got it back and it's still in good shape. That woulda been a sad loss!
I can relate w/ PPs that it's freaky when the babe starts screaming while attached to you and it's not easy to take them out. :
I just realized something today that makes me feel like a totally horrible mommy .... I've been reading about other babies rolling over and it dawned on me that I haven't given DD a chance to see if she can roll over on her own. I am constantly holding her. If I go pee or need to put her down to fix food, she's in her bouncy seat. I only lay her down on her liitle play mat thing maybe 5-10 minutes a day (if that). When she starts getting bored of it and fussing, I scoop her right back up. That's pretty much the only flat-on-her-back time she gets (well, except for diaper changes), since she sleeps in my arms or on her side between one of those positioner wedges. I feel bad...maybe I should be giving her more "play" time on the ground. I haven't given her much tummy time either, since I read elsewhere on MDC that holding your baby counts as tummy time since they're using the same muscle groups.
What do you mommas do? Should I try to change our routine a little and put her down to play more? :
If she wants down to play than do it, but if not I wouldn't worry about it....
