a day in the life of a babywearer.

For three and a half weeks I have been a mother of three. Its absolutly wonderful, but at times, a bit (or maybe a tad more) chaotic! My second born, who is two, has decided that getting into things he is not supposed to is best done while I am nursing his baby brother. Thank goodness for babywearing. I dont know how anyone without a carrier who has a gassy baby with a toddler in the house, and a preschooler with a really loud wild imagination gets anything done. I just about fall over at the end of the day running all over the place, trying to keep up on laundry, cooking, entertaining the kids, changing diapers, breastfeeding etc. With my son being carried contently against me, I can nurse him, and pull my two year old off the dining room table and talk to him about the dangers of getting into Daddy's shaving cream without having a baby crying for the boob. I can do my dishes and laundry without wondering if my two year old is trying to take his baby brother for a walk, or hitting him in the head with one of his trucks. I can go run errands without having to lug our big bulky double stroller out, getting up and down the narrow isles of certain stores is so much more easier with the baby all snuggled up on me. My baby also has taking a disliking to his little baby bathtub and taking a bath with me. But absolutly loves the shower, so into a sling he goes and we take a shower together..much easier than holding a wet slippery baby in your arms..much safer too! Plus, so many of the slings, wraps, mei tais, pods out there today are so flippen cute, it makes it so much fun!!!
