I've been lurking all week, but haven't had much time to post. So Hello Everyone!
OakEmber, some great sites for gaining info and knowledge on slings and babywearing in general are:http://www.kangarookorner.com/index.shtmlhttp://www.peppermint.com/http://www.kellymom.com/parenting/sling.html#types
There is also a Yahoo group all about babywearing, and one specifically for swapping/trading/buying slings. I can send you the links, if you like.
I personally love my Maya Wrap, and find that I use that more than all my other 7 (ugh!) slings/wraps combined. But having a padded rail is nice w/ a newborn (which the Maya doesn't have). You might poke around at your local resale shops/Goodwill stores, etc...and see if you can find a sling for cheap. In my experience, once you get into babywearing (like cloth diapering), you tend to want to try new and different stuff, and find your needs changing as your babe grows. I could talk about this all day, so if you want any more help or advice, feel free to PM me.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I've offically joined the UTI club....fun, fun, fun!
Been sleeping poorly, can't seem to get comfy and am plagued by very intense, disturbing dreams....and a hot, sweaty toddler rolling into me. If I don't get my afternoon nap, I am just a grouchy bear. Everyone keeps talking about being weepy emotional, I feel like I've been grouchy and irritable more this preg than weepy. Hope that *doesn't* say anything about the personality of Baby Cookie.
It's been so hard trying to maintain some semblance of patience and sanity with Hannah lately. And with DH...I shouldn't even get started there, or I'll never stop.
There's been so much going on in the thread this week that I wanted to comment on, and now I can't even remember it all.
Forgetful pregnant mama! But at least I wanted to say that I've been enjoying very much the great discussions on all the different "hot button" topics and how well we all respect eachother and all the viewpoints. I, too, have been loving getting to know you all....even when I'm quiet about it. Happy Big Belly Vibes to you all!
