I work as a nanny & I'm starting with a new family next week - the child is a tiny and beautiful 5 1/2 mo girl.

I have used quite a few prams with the different babies I take care of and have disliked all of them - even the trendy all-terrain style ones. They're just so big and unwieldy compared to the baby they're made to carry!
I'm sure they have their place but I haven't found it yet.

SO I was overjoyed when I was talking with the mama and she mentioned that she slings the baby - and asked whether I'd wear her in the bjorn! Of course I will!
I know this is the attachment PARENTING site but I think that you can have attachment nannying too - it's so lovely to find a family who think like I do!

Just wanted to express my happiness to some people who understand - I mentioned it to my friend and she was like ....okay.......?

Wonderful!

Ask this mama whether she's researched other carriers besides the bjorn, though -- that's not going to be comfy for her, you, or bub for very long!!!
