We finally master the red sling

I always thought that I would carry my baby in a sling. I loved the idea of the tiny baby in there just sleeping against me. Hah! Noah did not agree. When I tried to put him in he would kick and scream, not wanting to be lying down, and not wanting to face me. I almost gave up for a while, but I finally discovered the sling's greatness. He likes to face the world, see what's going on, and the sling is the perfect way to do it. Now I can hang out laundry, water the garden, etc. and it's an enjoyable experience for both of us.

By the way, thanks Louisa, for this lovely sling!

Funny how comma placement means everything.

That is a beautiful sling and in the first pic especially it looks like you have a little buddha attached to you. How freaking cute!

He looks so alert and excited about life - it's great how much he loves to look outward!

Yay, I'm so glad it is working! You both look amazing in that color, by the way :)
