    My daughter was the same way. I just got really good at doing everything one handed.

    She was very tiny, though.
    It's true I must be going, but I swear I won't be long

    How are you slinging her?? Are you doing it upright or still in a cradle hold. Kaia prefered the upright even when she was teeny. That is why i prefer my ring sling.

    At first I tried the Moby wrap and I actually hated it. I've been shopping around for a regular baby carrier and found a few I liked. My friend actually let me borrow her Jeep 2-in-1 carrier and I fell in love with it. I'll be buying it very very soon.

    See if you can find a mei tei on Etsy or something like that for less than $80... or try a hug-a-bub or Moby Wrap... my sister's baby really liked her Moby Wrap.

    I assure you, though, that it will be worth every penny if it makes your baby happy.

    I liked the Moby with Bella... I want an Ergo. They're pricey though. We truthfully use a baby bjorn the most, I heard they're bad for baby's legs but its what works best for us.

    God help me I am trying! I have a moby wrap but she does not like being against my chest like that so I have to wait till she's a bit bigger when she can face outward (it says at 4 months she can do that) then I have a hot sling that I think I go the wrong size because she just is seriously squished and the ring sling? I can't figure it out!! I neeeeed help!!

    I use my Ergo with Henry. When he was smaller I used my Moby. I also have a BabyHawk Mei Tai. I did the same with my girls. Dd2 was super clingy so it was my only option if I wanted to get things done.

    I don't like slings.
