Not a Born Sling Lover

I'm pleased to say that my son has made it to the 2 week mark and I'm still alive, still (mostly) sane, and finally learning to use the sling better. BB is not a born sling lover. In fact, in order to get him to settle down in it today (pressing that I fold towels or NO showers!) I had to plop him in and walk around outside in the sunshine before he'd relax and sleep. At least it worked.

I'm also pleased to report that after a very sleepless Monday, BB slept a four hour stretch last night! While I was so happy to have that sleep, my poor breasts were a bit unhappy. Four hours at a stretch makes for engorgement. Yeeouch.

To make up for my lack of posting, here's a gratuitous kid shot:

What a beautiful little guy.

I love it when babies are asleep and their lower lip is kind of "sucked in" like that. Awwwwwww.

Glad you are starting to feel better! I never did get the hang of the sling. I was always afraid I would tip the baby out!

So sweet! I've been trying out different wraps, etc. So far Doodle only kind of likes it. I think it more depends on her sleep level!

I am getting used to the sling, too. I still don't think I have it figured out just the right way to wear it.

So far he has fallen asleep in it a handful of times. We will keep practicing.
