wink1.gif pomegranate! I tried lil in the ergo with no infant insert today and we loved it. She's two weeks old and getting sturdier in the trunk.

We are still loving the ergo sans insert. It's pretty quick and easy to put on, easy to take off, and Lillian is so cozy in there. I typically out her in sort of sideways and have one side tighter than the other. Sometimes her litle feet hang out one side together, other times she froggies them.

Still mulling this over! Clearly babywearing and skin to skin are both obsessions of mine and I'm still looking for the perfect combination. 

 

I still kind of hate the NuRoo. I LOVE the MiracleCami, which I got to replace it - so functional on so many different levels. I couldn't do the Baby K'Tan - was in between sizes and the x-small hurt my back (center of gravity too high) while the small hung too low and loose.

 

But when the MiracleCami's in the wash, I'm toying with the idea of putting baby inside my shirt and a soft structured carrier *outside* so I can take it off whenever w/o having to fiddle with my own clothes. I'd love to try this with a mei tai but I don't have one. In the meantime I've got a scarf and a pair of pants hugging baby to me. :) (Do not fear, I can see the baby's nose, not obvious from the picture.)

 

[If I were to try a mei tai, any suggestions?]

letting me witness homebirth as a little girl and giving me confidence in my ability to birth normally.

Lol! Pom. Looks like you have made your own moby wrap. We have been using the Ergo without insert. Just slide her in with frog legs. We started around 3 weeks. Have been using that more than my Moby.

I'm so excited, I should be getting an Ergo today! I have been using a Moby but it takes so much to put it on and is a pain when I want to wear Atlas in a store! I hope I love it as much as everyone else seems to love it! 


Happily married to my DH (05/06) and stay-at-home mom to a beautiful daughter energy.gif (01/11) and two sweet angel babies angel.gifangel.gif (2/12 and 11/12) and due Jan 10th with another blessing. 3rdtri.gif

I hope you like it too! I love the moby, I will often put it on and keep it on all day, especially if we are out and about. But the ergo is nice too, we hate the infant insert but she's big enough now not to use it.
