    I have one, also had one for my daughter whos now 10 and it was a godsend, i had a c section and was so much easier those 1st few wks to use that.
    Our babies are due summer time so no worries of icy pavements.
    Also makes dad more involved and bet hes gonna have a huge grin on his face as he carrys lo about

    For me, the best by far is the close baby carrier. You can have it 5 different ways and i LIVE in mine... as does Lylah :D hehe
    So handy when all the other suckers are waiting for the lift and you can take the stairs/elevator.

    I can now yeah, although the first few times i needed a mirror to see what I was doing cuz I found I was putting her legs all over the place, she ended up all tied up haha. And yes I can BF in it, while washing up/vacuuming or reading a book.
    I love mine. Its good too cuz you have the extra weight on you, helps you to lose weight and get your muscle strength back

    I've got a carrier and love it. Makes it so much easier to do things like grocery shopping especially when he stopped liking to be in his car seat.

    We have a Snugli, given to us as a gift.. Elyse loves it, and it is handy (even just for around the house when she insists on being held but I need to do something, or when she's fussy and needs to be held but is just sleeping & wakes up when I try to put her down?).. well I think it's the ugliest thing ever. I'm looking to buy a nicer, more trendy baby sling or something because I wouldn't be caught dead in public with it.. but it's very useful!! :blush:

    I thought this too but baby was only 6lbs 1oz and has just hit 7lbs.. not a problem whatsoever!! So really depends on the size of the baby :)
     
  15. Ive got a baba sling and baby bjorn. I hate the baba sling ive never figured out how to use it. My OH uses the baby bjorn but it hurts my back and ribs. I find it too heavy. Im getting a moby wrap next which is like the close carrier one.

    I bought an ergo carrier...looks great and has great reviews! My sis tried it with her 9 month old and loved it! I think it'll be handy for when I want to go for a walk when I cant' use the stroller (river paths etc). Also at home when the baby just needs to be help and I have stuff to do....

    The close baby carrier has a supportive back bit in a cross shape, Lylah is 10lb odd now and I carry her easily, Helens lad Rhys is 12lb odd and she has no problem carrying him. I see it as an additional fat burner aswell as a convienience.

  19. See how you get one with the one you got first or you could end spending a fortune like me!
