Adventures in babywearing

If you have a newborn or are going to have a baby, you have got to get this baby carrier with the infant insert.

Totally snuggly and amazing



After kindergarten drop off, we took a lovely walk around the neighborhood, and afterward Cooper slept happily snuggled inside the carrier like a little pea in a pod while I had a snack and did some work. Perfect.

I still also love the Moby, and made Ben understand that we needed to keep them both.

Thanks to my new found 2-handed mobility, we went apple picking




Which totally wore Cooper out

We did a little tummy time. I forgot all about tummy time. Is it still recommended?

I took about a thousand pictures of him for his birth announcements, which got old fast


The great thing about a newborn is that he makes me be present all the time. The moment is the only moment-- he needs something always. So I have just been holding him and kissing him and breathing him. And watching HGTV.

So, so sweet! We wouldn't have survived without our carriers those first few months. The more the better, I say!

Tummy time is still recommended since they sleep on their backs :)

And the only negative of the Ergo I have heard is heat (i.e. if you live where it is hot, it might get too sweatie for everyone). But, they are definitely great for longevity and snuggling :)
