That's a Wrap!

Posted by Heather at Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Recently, baby slings have come under fire and gotten a bad "rap" (pun intended) due to the misuse/recall of some slings. However, I wanted to point out how much we have enjoyed correctly using a baby WRAP (such as http://www.mobywrap.com/). Ever since you were born (separate blog post), I've wrapped you up and held you close, Katy, and we've both benefited from "babywearing." You sleep soundly next to me as you hear my heartbeat and I have both hands free to get things done around the house. Thanks to my friend, Jennifer Riggs, here is a good site about safely wrapping up/wearing baby http://www.sleepingbaby.net/safety.php.

Whenever you are sleepy or fussy and the "Happy Chair" won't do, I wrap you up and you are soon sound asleep. Today was a good example of this- maintenance had to come and fix the upstairs toilet and there was no way you'd sleep through all the racket if you were sleeping in your chair. However, since you were wrapped up (see picture above) on me, you slept soundly through the whole thing! The maintenance guy even made a comment that he was surprised you could sleep through all of his noise!

Who knew that five yards of fabric could do so much...?!
**Update 4/21/10- After your shots, today, the ONLY way to calm you down from your frantic crying and wailing was to wrap you up and hold you close!
