DD1 LIVED in a sling or a pouch from 2-10 months. Then I got too pregnant to carry her and, well, she seemed to be okay with it.
DD2, now 4 months old, hates being in the sling (hated being swaddled too which I think is related). We've been trying since she was 3 weeks old. She's not as high-needs as DD1 but I was still disappointed b/c I was really counting on being able to wear her.
And then, from reading posts in this forum, I decided to give the Ergo a try! She LOOOOVES it! She naps in it, she hangs out in it, she sucks on the straps, she is so content in it
This week we're going to start working on getting her into the back carry but I'm already in love.
Thanks for this forum!!!!!
