I have a question for baby wearers... I stopped using my sling after a disastrous trip to Blackpool without the pram when LO was about 5 months. He just cried and cried and couldn't sleep at all until we went to a cafe and let him sleep on the table. Obviously this put us off and plus the sling was uncomfy. I know the benefits of baby wearing with a newborn but is it still necessary to baby wear when they're older and more independent? I feel a bit guilty about using a pram and don't know whether to invest in a new sling or carrier that might be equally unsuccessful. I do, however, want what's best for LO and don't want to damage his development by using a pram. What do you think? Sorry, know I haven't worded that brilliantly.
Thanks! Yeah we used the sling all the time when he was tiny but the pram is so much easier now IMO. I don't know, I just get the impression that baby wearing is better as it's in everyone's signatures. I know that's silly but that's what I'm mostly basing it on I also read that babies become distressed when they're away from their parents. I might have already messed it up though as I have never worn him in the sling for hours at a time every day. Even when he was tiny I'd only use the sling when we were out and just hold him when we were home.
