The Sling




So I’ve finally tried my custom-made Hug of Joy sling, after speaking with Joy on how to use it. She appears to be extremely comfortable, so I’m comfortable with using it. She’s been asleep since I put her in, which was about an hour ago. This frees me up for doing so many other things. The only complaint I have right now is that my front hurts a little bit from the c-section incision, so I probably won’t be able to carry her in it for too long for at least another couple of weeks. However, it’s incredibly comfortable and durable, and she sleeps through anything and everything in it — me walking, me bending over to pick something up, me talking to Dave, me sitting at the computer, etc. It’s pretty awesome. And since she loves it so much, it makes it all worthwhile.

Dave fits the carrier better than I do, so he will be using that a lot more. I’ll be using the sling since it’s custom made to fit my body size. Dave won’t fit into it. Heh. Also, I can hold her in various positions, and will be able to hold her until she is 35 lbs. This works well depending on my mood (and hers). This also makes travelling a whole lot easier. Maybe we can go on walks at the beach without a stroller, or whatever. It opens up all sorts of doors!

yeah! We love our sling. I am so glad you got to use it. I use it on a daily basis for things around the house and mostly instead of bringing him car seat everywhere, I just put him in the sling. He sleeps so much in it. I love it! It took me a while for it to feel good. She looks pretty great in it. Have fun!

hands free is the only way to be. I’m glad you’re using the comfort of your body rhythm to soothe her, and that you both enjoy it!
