I love the wide smiles! Mine does more now too and it's my favorite part of the day.
I have a moby, but have never really liked it. Used about 4 times. Never felt completely hands free in it around the house...,and out and about ts so complicated to put on. Any tips! How do you baby wear in public and now that it's cold what do you do!? I feel like w a big coat on, in slippery wet snow, baby wearing won't be good? And can't wrap him in blankets then.....idk, I'm lost.
Nicole: Have you watched the youtube video instructions on the Moby? They might help. Make sure you are making it tight enough too - the Moby is stretchy so you don't really have to leave room for Kian.
I'm think I'm going to try this :No Sew Fleece BW Poncho in winter. Otherwise dressing them warm and wearing an oversized coat withe the wrap underneath works too.
I have been wearing him in THIS. It's surprisingly very light weight and even with the little hcunker in there my back doesn't get sore at all. I have been wearing my Pregnancy hoodie over both of us, and able to zip it up as well
It's getting a bit colder now though, so not sure.....
Shopping with him in the carrier is awesome! He just passes out. I have no solution to the cold weather problem. He stays very warm against my chest, but we both get cold in the car getting him from the carseat to the carrier... Bleah. I have a baggy coat but it's not big enough to do up the buttons...
NY, I agree, check out the youtube videos. I LOVE my Moby wrap! I take her up and down the stairs. It comes with instruction on all the wraps. Right now, Amelia likes the Cradle hold. Newborn hug works well to calm her and I don't quite have the breastfeeding hold down yet. The store owner taught me the hug hold and I'm pretty confident with it! Doug really likes the Ergo but it's hard for me to work her in and out by myself all day long.
As for the bottles, I LOVE the Dr. Browns for colic! AWESOME insert for our little piggy who likes to gulp. It makes her swallow slower.
Today I got cracked! A day at the chiropractor is like a day at the spa for me. First time in almost a year! I'm looking forward to the next visit and maybe sometime after the holidays I'll go in for a nice massage. Oh Help me Rhonda!
Doug managed to tick me off today too. The only time I've been at the mall. I managed to get Amelia her stocking, we managed to eat and then Amelia needed to feed again. In the midst of rushing to find a breastfeeding accessible store, my husband strayed or should I say lagged behind moping because he was in a flipping mall. I finally got mad and told him if he didn't want to walk with his wife and daughter to leave, so ....he left! LIVID doesn't cut it. He said he didn't hear me say that. I call it convenience! Needless to say, he spent most of the night making it up to me. Again I managed to get to a flipping store to leave with 2 things. I have no idea how I'm going to catch up with Christmas shopping at this rate. SO MAD.
