|Our trip to the Peterborough Museum and Archives in January|
I like to do a lot of shopping downtown, and when you're going in and out of stores, a stroller is a pain in the keester. I added the little pocket to my grey sling so that I could carry my wallet, car keys and a smushed up resuable bag with me. So happy I did that!
these instructions from Maya Wrap and followed their instructional videos to learn how to use the sling.
And I made one for my friend Becky...
...she loves hers too! Becky is able to garden and run errands with 5 week old Kennedy snuggled in her sling.
I have another baby-wearing device that I really like (I guess it'd be number 2 on the hypothetical list) and although it gets less use than the sling, it's still valuable.
Making a wrap like this is a cinch:
Buy 5 meters of jersey knit fabric.
Cut down the middle length-wise.
Now you have two wraps. I always keep one in the car...sometimes it gets used to wipe off muddy dog feet :)
The photo is my own back carry invention. I'll be honest, it sucked. I mean...it worked, but it just didn't feel great. I found a rucksack back carry demo on YouTube that is MUCH better. And, it should be noted that a stretchy knit fabric like jersey is great for front carrying, but you'll need a non-stretch fabric for back carrying.
