Baby Sling

My friend, Lynn (flipfloppingmamma), has gotten me hooked on the baby sling trend. Let me tell you, I am loving it! Especially since Aiden is growing by leaps and bounds and is darn right heavy these days. My arms do still resemble Arnold Schwarzenegger's from carrying around the carseat, but when possible I am able to throw him in the sling and not have to lug that big ol' thing around.

It is amazing how much you can get done using one of these things. For the most part, Aiden is a "leave me alone" baby and does not require much holding, but when he is sleepy he does like to be cuddled and this lets me still get things accomplished during the day. My Sister-in-law, B, has also sent me a new sling - the Moby. This consists of an eight-foot piece of material which you intricately wrap around yourself and baby leaving the child strapped to your body - I have not figured this thing out yet. My goal is just not to let Aiden hit the floor while trying to tie him to me. I will keep practicing...

Let me know which one you like because I'd like to try one out for keeping baby on my hip!
