Laundry has become an issue for us too...He almost does a headstand in the Ergo when I transfer from washer to dryer!<br><br>
I cook dinner with DS on my back in the Ergo. The other night, I was handing him pieces of vegetables (stir-fry for dinner) to much on...and I thought he was eating them...but, no, they were shoved down the neck of my sweat shirt (in between the tee shirt/sweat shirt layer so I couldn't really feel them)!

Walk around the block<br>
Sweep<br>
Mop<br>
Vacuum<br>
Steam clean the carpets<br>
Feed the dogs<br>
Walk the dogs<br>
Do the dishes<br>
Laundry<br>
Eat<br>
Make the beds<br>
Water the plants<br>
Shop<br>
Sightsee<br>
Potty<br><br>
I'm sure there's more....but really, there's been little I do that can't be done with baby strapped on me. Except the only things I don't do while wearing the baby really are iron or cook, because of the heat/burning potential. Pretty much everything else is fine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Here's what I do with TWO babies (one on front and one on back)<br><br>
Play fetch with the dog<br>
Put away the laundry<br>
Clean up after lunch<br>
Walk and bounce them to sleep for a nap (hoping the one on the front falls asleep first!)
