Back carries with a wrap
So I got my new wrap. Its working out great!
so you may remember my wrap post of long ago. From that you may come to the conclusion that I already had enough wraps. Well, you'd be wrong. Actually I am going to sell my hotsling and babyhawk I think, as this one is doing a good job so far.
So, I think once you have wrapped a bit then the back carries are not so scary. I do the Ruck as it is quick and easy to put on, and can be done with a shorter wrap, which is what I like. The wrap I got is an extra small. And its a perfect length.
I found that Marcel was never comfortable on my back as I always had him on my front. This was due to the fact that I didnt have to chase a toddler with him, or tie laces, or pick up thousands of little trucks in the living room. Now I find that having little em on my back is much easier. He is used to it now and falls asleep almost immediately every time I put him up.
There is the fact that when babe is on your back you cant really sit back and relax. So I put him on when I am in the mood to really work, and I tell myself I will keep working (usually house work) while the baby is asleep there. Then I get lots done, and when he comes down we all can relax. I also get my exercise.
So I put him on in the morning after he has eaten and played a bit and is ready to sleep. And then we get to work. It works out really well for all of us. I haven't yet had the courage to tie him up while out in public, but maybe that's yet to come.
