The last couple weeks have been very difficult to hold DS. He's not quite 5 mos old and he weighs 25 lbs! Here's the problem. When I'm out running errands, I used to carry him in the sling, but now he's too much for me to hold after just a half hour or so (my shoulder hurts for 3 days afterward!). When I go grocery shopping, I usually sling him for about 45 minutes and this is getting to be too much now. Luckily he really likes the stroller (no flames, please, at this point it is a necessity!), but I can't get many things at the store while pushing a stroller and trying to hold a hand basket (Christmas shopping is going to be a nightmare!). He can't sit unassisted yet, so putting him in the cart wouldn't work.

So, what do you mamas with big babes do? I need help soon or my back and my arms are going to give out on me!
