Thanks guys - is a major pain but I have written a list if what needs doing, shopping list, agenda of activities times for the party (including when food will come out) and have bought decorations. Not made easier by the fact baby brain has well and truly kicked in - left a tub of ice cream in the car while I leisurely shopped for party games/gifts/decorations and then went and filled up with petrol when I only had my phone and keys but no money!!! So embarrassing!!
Lots - most people I know loved the manduca or the ergo. We have a Bjorn and DS didn't love it and never seemed as comfortable as the babies in the others. A few girls in my mums group had the fabric wrap type things and it took ages to figure out how to do it on your own. I remember when our bubs were about 8 weeks old needing three of them to do it - one being the wearer, one holding the baby and one doing the wrapping. Then they swapped and did the next girl and bub. It was hilarious! Personally I would avoid that style. I am hoping to borrow a manduca and if that falls through I will buy an ergo second hand.
