Hi--my pastor's wife had a very fussy newborn and I suggested she pop over to my resale store and try out a sling. She did and the baby loves it!! I am quite happy about that. He settled down, is happy and is actually chubby!!! I was so excited to see him today.
Anyway, she said she feels better cause he's not always screaming but her back hurts she says a little--(I haven't used mine for along time--baby is 2 so dont' remember if that's normal or not) It looks like she has it on right and she looked at my instruction book and Dr Sears book about it.
Any tips? It's a Sling Eazee by Parenting concepts--
Also, she says he wont' let her lay him down in it--it worked twice but now he wakes right up til she puts him back in it--she has 4 other little girls so I'm sure she really does need to put him down sometimes. Any tips on that?
She did say that he is more content when he's out of it and will look around and coo at things (he really was very grumpy!!)
Also she wanted to know how long he'll want to be carried constantly--
I look at it as very exciting and how thankful I am for them that he settled down and is gaining weight and what a lucky little boy he is, I just want to help her a little so she really sees how great this is
This may be my first "convert" toward natural parenting and I"m tooting my own horn!!
