I have a new favorite baby carrier—the sling. This is the most classic of baby carriers and it is a favorite of baby wearers. Anyway, Maralee gave us a sweet tye-dyed one when Lu was born but Lu was done with the whole swaddling thing after about two weeks of life. The first time I put her in the sling she loved it, a couple of weeks later she screamed when I tried to put her in it. But a few weeks ago I tried her out in it again, in the hip hold position. It was pretty comfortable and she seemed pretty content in it. she has been getting a bit too heavy for the bjorn. The sling spreads her weight across my back and shoulders, and the bjorn feels like it is just on my shoulders.
