My dd was held in arms or sling 24/7 until she was 4 months old and clearly indicated that she wanted to be down on the ground to play with toys. When she wasn't sitting playing, she'd still be in the sling or in arms. Now she's in the sling only when she's cranky or when we're out and about. Happy to say, she's never been in a stroller, but she rode in our new red wagon with her big brother last night for a moonlit-walk and boy, was she thrilled!
Those early sling days are over so, so quickly and on the days when she became sooooo heavy, I reminded myself of this. Now I am already nostalgic for those infant days (dd will be 1 year on Monday) and I am so glad I did what I did. I will have those fond memories to treasure when I am old and gray.
