Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Lovin' Babywearing!

I am new to babywearing even though my son is now 18 months. I tried a Bjorn and a sling(not a wrap type one though) a little when he was younger but never really took to it. It was more inconvenient- too hard to get him in and out and uncomfortable to wear. I found an Ergo recently at our local consignment shop and picked it up. I love it!!! I got it more with an eye to the next baby since I am not too excited about a double stroller and I figure I will need a way to carry around baby #2 while chasing baby #1. I love it for baby #1 and so does he. He gets so antsy in the stroller sometimes or just wants to run around the store or be held. This way I can talk to him, bounce him, or carry him on my back(he loves piggy back rides) easily. My true test for it was when I used it at the grocery store. I stuck him on my back because he always wriggles out of the safety straps on the cart and stands up. It was a much easier trip than others. I spent an hour with him comfortably on my back. He would fuss occasionally but much less than he does in the cart and I didn't have to stress over him falling out of the cart. Yay for babywearing! My husband has noticed how much happier Kaden is with it too. I'd love to try some other styles of babywearing gear but can't justify it when I have the great Ergo already. Also I am not sure how well the Ergo will work for a newborn- -we would have to buy an insert. So I signed up for When 2 became 3's giveaway for a wrap! You should go and sign up too!

I "wore" my daughter for a good 4 months. Helped with colic, and helped me get a whole lot done during the day. Also good to have her so close. ;)

Thanks for the pep talk. It was something so totally not worth my time to be upset by but I was. Long story short (kinda impossible but here goes). Guy that baptized me in HS and that I was previously engaged to said some REALLY hurtful things that got back around to me. Sucks, but I do have a wonderful life now. Actually I'll be getting called to be the YW sports coach today and I will still keep teaching my wonderful CTR7 class. Take care.
