Since I’m lucky enough to bring ds to work with me for 4 hours everyday, I would like to make my time as productive as possible. I think wearing ds is the best way of going about it. When he sits at the computer with me, I use the Bjorn with him facing out, only with the straps loose so he can sit comfortably and “type” with me without falling off my lap. Obviously this arrangement does not work when I have to get up and go somewhere. What’s the better way? I tried a hotsling when he was 4 months and that didn’t work out too well. He is now 7 months and pretty wiggly.<br><br>
Also, my work schedule will change in a month so dh will be with him at home, so if we can get a carrier to do double duty that would be awesome. Dh hates wearing the bjorn, but likes hiking with our Kelty, so I think a back wearing position would be the best fit for him. Plus he could vacuum, wash dishes, etc..<br><br>
Also, does anyone wear their lo to work?

i wear dd to work and have been since she was 2 months old. we started with a ring sling but now that she is older we use the ergo or an onbu. i can nurse hands free in the ergo and she naps in it really well. i am not a mei tai fan but it would be a great option too. my dh also wears the ergo (it's the only carrier he likes). hth and isn't it great to be able to wear your lo at work? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm thinking a soft structured carrier or mei tai might work really well for you. This way you can either wear your son on the front or on the back, where you'll notice more of a difference in terms of comfort and ease.
