Some night I wear her down to sleep. She has just stopped nursing to sleep and I find she can get her cuddle time in and I can still do the stuff that I need to do.

I've got into wrapping and have been carrying my son in a wrap anytime we go in a store for a long time, i also carry him when we walk to drop my 5yr old off at school in the morning and in the afternoon to pick her up. He's starting to get used to it It's much easier than him throwing a fit and me having to carry him in my arms which makes him seem even heavier than 31lbs.
I am only 5ft and i know i will be wearing dd for a long time to come, i just hope she dosent get as tall as me anytime soon lol!

A few weeks ago I had him in my old Beco in a backcarry and it was so lightweight.
Last year I used Mei Tais a lot.
Of course he is walking most of the time but I think I could carry him for a while longer if I really wanted. He weighs 40 lbs.

She rides in the carts at the grocery store or any place that has a cart available. But I wear her when I go walking, I wear her when I am shopping in stores that can be crowded--Barnes & Noble, etc...I also wear her when I'm cleaning the house.
It's getting harder now though as DS2 is getting very familiar with my sling and will bounce up and down excitedly when he sees me get it out, and will be quite dissapointed if he isnt the one being worn, so DS1 is being worn less. He still loves it though.

Thankful to be a play-at-home-Mommee to my "cage-free" little monkeys, Sam, (1/21/07) and Jonas (8/17/09), a Wifee to my best friend, James, and excited to welcome our first girl-baby this summer. ***Families Are Forever!***
I don't wear him for long periods of time though unless he falls asleep or I'm trying to get stuff done and he's content. With four little ones sometimes it's easier to have him strapped onto me and I know he's not getting into trouble.
He often brings me a carrier (he's partial to a wrap or mei-tai but we use SSC exclusively while out an about) he say's mama, me! up up! So funny, how could I say no to that. And as long as I get the carrier tight enough and positioned right it is comfy. He's about 25 lbs.
Also, grocery shopping and other errands he usually is on my back so my hands are free to grab stuff. My 3.5 yr old rides in the front of the cart and the two older ones walk so it's the easiest way to go to the store.
I had to wean him sooner than I wanted to due to a hospitalization (mine) and I love that he can get mommy comfort through being worn still.
I actually just altered my Patapum to make it have a longer body so he will fit better. His torso was getting so long that he actually flipped backward and was hanging by his thighs once when I was trying to get him onto my back. Super scary for both of us. With the longer body, he fits snug as a bug in a rug back there.
