How am I supposed to get anything done

with this darling little boy attached to me? Matthew has decided that he will not sleep unless he is in my arms. Anywhere else and he will just cry. I love that I can calm him just by holding him, but come on little one! I have other things to do, like shower and brush my teeth once in a while! Today I attempted to do some grocery shopping with Matt. Yikes! He screamed almost the whole time! But I was able to purchase some gas relief drops, so maybe there s an end in sight to the wailing. I gotta go ... he just woke up and realized I had put him down. Ahh the life of a mommy. :)

Have you tried the sling? I used it all the time with Ainsley, of course it was a lot cooler in April, but I was even able to sit down with her in it while she slept.

Yeah, we tried it but neither one of us are comfortable in it. I am hoping when my om gets here she will make me one of those wrap slings.

I was just going to say that I loved my Moby Wrap. I pretty much wore Jacob everywhere I went for a few months. It's tighter than a sling so you can actually do things besides walk. We both loved it. I think they're pretty cheap too (like $30), and I think you can get one on ebay for even cheaper.

I hear ya, mama! Laina was exactly the same way. I wish I would have tried a wrap when she was tiny. When she was a bit older I tried Rachel's sling and Laina hated it. But I feel like if I would have done something like that from the beginning she would have been ok with it. I really want a mei tai for the next baby, but they aren't cheap!
