I have a 3 month old boy. At 3 weeks, husband and I took a sling class and bought a Moby. Loved it at first, as did DS. But I didn't wear him all the time. I got really hot in the house, but I did use it to take him outdoors. Now he doesn;t seem to like it unless he's asleep . . . if he's awake he hates being that confined. (You should have seen me trying to vote on election day when he woke up in the middle of voting, and started freaking out, standing up in the sling! I had to hold him with one hand while trying to vote with the other. Yikes! ) So now we've switched to a Baby Bjorn, so he'd be more free to move around a bit. But he seems to not like that for more than 10 minutes or so. I could take another class to see how to use the Moby in different wrap styles to see if there are others that are more freeing.
I want to use the sling more, so I can get more done around the house and such. So, should I just try a few minutes every day when he's in a good mood and been fed and changed, and let him build up to it? Or do some kids just not like the sling? I never tried to bf in the Moby. I don't know how you would do it without suffocating him!
