I've been popping Nora in the sling, It is an unpadded ring sling, and she tolerates it fairly well. Neither of my babies have liked the cradle hold at all, but they do like the heart to heart carry. Nora is so much smaller than Zoe was, that I do feel like she is swimming in there a little bit, but I've been rolling receiving blankets to pack around her, and then cinching it as tight as I can. I also have a new native, and a moby-type wrap. She hates the new native, and I haven't gotten brave enough to try the wrap yet. I think I need someone to actually show me how to do it, because I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the directions I've found on line.
Nora still has her cold, and has a cough that sounds really nasty.
I took her to see my midwife on Tuesday so she could listen to her lungs to make sure they were clear, and her lungs sound great, so I think the mucous is mostly in her throat, and just sounds really bad. But even though she is sleeping pretty well at night, I've been staying awake to listen to her breathe, because it just makes me so nervous to have a little baby who is sick. She doesn't act sick though, and no fever at all. I just want her to get better now!
Dd1 is definitely having a hard time. She is really great w/Nora, but is doing lots of tantrums, and really really fighting sleep. And pretty much only wants Mama.
That's all for now, Hope everyone else is well,
