Loving my "Sleepy Wrap"

When I had Ella I bought a Hotsling. It was a great way to carry her and still have my hands free to manage the other kids- especially at church. However, I never felt that it fit quite right. Recently I read about the Sleepy Wrap and decided to try it. I had considered getting a Moby Wrap, but the Sleepy sounded better because it's stretchy. Let me just say I am loving it!! It is so comfy and easy to use. Charlotte has been in it for nearly three hours now and I was able to make lunch, clean up, read stories, get the littles down for naps, and blog! If you want to try babywearing, I highly recommend it!



Here's a picture. I know, you can hardly tell she's in there, but trust me, she's comfy. And yes, mom, she can breathe okay :) Since this picture I've started holding her in it a different way so I'll try to have Pete take a picture of that one of these days. And I'll try not to have that scary zombie look in my eyes!

THat is SO cool! Reminds me a bit of the mommas I saw in Africa. Except their babies were on their backs. Still, they were all snuggled up close. Ahhhhh...to be a baby. :-)

Now you tell me...after I just bought a hotsling :-P I see what you mean though, I'm on my second size and it works alright but is still not a perfect fit. And yes, Aiden is definitely starting to turn into a little chunker! I love it!

It's almost like a continuation of pregnancy. :D

looks comfy. my hotsling is too big, and I'm currently looking for another size cheap. I found it difficult getting the baby in and out of the hotsling, though. So either, I'm just clumsy or awkward, or it really is difficult. Is your new sling easier?

Michelle- it is way easier, probably because it's stretchy
