Does anyone else have this problem? how can I get him to like the sling? I have 3 of them--a new native (which I think might be too small b/c he seems kinda crammed in there), a solarveil (sp?), and a baby bjorn. I just tried the baby bjorn for the first time last night. At first he seemed ok with it, but then screamed after 5 mintues. I'm at my wits end. I really need to get certain household chores and errands done (shower, laundry, grocery store, etc), but I can't seem to find any easy way to do them. Any suggestions? I appreciate any advice you btdt moms can give.

My other thought is to keep giving him exposure to it whenever he is most comfortable with it (i.e., out & about walking fast), and just let him mature/get a little bigger... related to the car seat issue, mine also HATED the car seat from 0-3 months... (and we had a 12 hour drive at 4 & 6 weeks- yikes!). But one day, she just GOT OVER it. We put her in, she looked around, was totally calm, no tears. Amazing! So don't give up on the slings yet, even if he doesn't seem to like them now, it may just be a stage.
