My baby is 9 weeks old now. Since about 5 weeks old, she was in the HUB and seemed to like it. I could take her to school and some days do chores around the house etc. But only small bits here and there.
Just to be clear though, I have not worn her extensively, nor do plan to (yet I haven’t plonked her in there and expected her to cope either). I am guessing that some posters might say this is why I am having the problem I am having.
I also do not plan to BF her in the carrier unless we’re out etc, not that I am opposed to it but I am not keen on walking the dog and BF at the same time. She normally goes in after a feed and until recently there has been no problem.
Now she has just started to become really upset when placed in any of the carriers mentioned. She squirms, gets frustrated and then cries. She is not a crier at all so I am really caught off guard by this. She seems to always want to move her legs and rarely keeps her body still. I am not too keen on baby bjorn but I do wonder if after a month or so if this would suit her better?
There is a good chance she is smelling my milk yet, she is not hungry and as mentioned I am not comfortable having the boob out constantly while she’s in there. This of course depends on what I am doing at the time. She goes in after a feed.
I am thinking of going to a local meet to have a look at some other slings but I can’t keep buying carriers. It’s getting pricey if though I am buying 2nd hand!
Any ideas or suggestions?
