for some reason figuring out which baby carrier to wear my baby in has always filled me with agitation, feelings of overwhelment and frustration!!!
I have one ds who is 3 months and I mostly have not worn him at all.
the reason for this is that I had a c section birth, and then my back got really hurt. So I was not feeling really able to wear him.
I am now finally feeling strong enough to try.
At any rate I did try some in the last 3 months and this is my experience:
I tried the ring slings and pouch slings and they felt so tight for me and ds and I didn't like them.
I tried the moby and it felt too heavy and too cumbersome and annoying to put on.
I finally got an ergo with an insert for newborns- but the insert felt too big and bulky and way too hot for this time of yr.
I want to try the ergo just plain but I am out of town for a wk and my ergo is at home and I am not sure ds is big enough for it yet- 3 months and maybe 14 lbs or so and not holding his head too strong up yet.
so what to do?
Is a baby hawk better for a little one than an ergo?
I just think there are so many choices I just get overwhelmed! And none of them seem right for me somehow.
I want something light and easy and snug.
I guess I want to try some sort of mei tei only cause the ergo seems too big for ds right now. But would any mei tei feel just as big?
confused!! And btw where I live there aren't any stores where I can go in and try them all out.
