Does anyone have any tips/suggestions on how to keep a curious and<br>
eager-to-touch-everything 10 month old baby happy in the sling? I often have her<br>
tightly snuggled around my hips, but she wiggles around and reaches<br>
for everything that it's getting to be difficult to even keep her in<br>
the sling. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

When she is on your hip, you can straighten her legs out (so one leg is going across your belly and the other leg across your back), and bring the sling all around her legs, and then pull some of the fabric up (so there is your belly, the fabric, her leg and then more fabric). Do you know what I mean? It is hard to explain. Just try to have the fabric completly surround her legs.<br>
Then also, bring the fabric all the way up to the back of her neck, and then tighten the sling. You can tuck her arms in or leave them out.<br>
I would suggest some sort of toy that you can attach to the sling, but for a 10-month old, one toy will not satisfy her for very long.<br>
Hope this will help some! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
