He's one of those kids. Relentless. I LOVE that about him. And it makes me crazzzy sometimes.
Wearing him has really helped us to meet his needs for close and touch and time (and up). As a newborn I really enjoyed the Moby Wrap and a Ring Sling that was passed down from a friend. Safran always slept best when worn and his crying was usually calmed within a few strides.
We also love our Ergobaby carrier and as soon as he had good head control Saf spent much of the day on my back - walks in the neighborhood, chores around the house - it's so wonderful to have my hands free and my baby happy. I still wear Safran often on my back when cooking and cleaning. He's 30 pounds now and it's still feels good most of the time.
I did have trouble using the Ergo into my third trimester of Jubilee's pregnancy, so I purchased a ring sling from Sakura Bloom and used it with Saf on my hip nearly every day through the rest of my pregnancy. Love it. As soon as Jubilee was born I began using it with her, so nice and snug, her head to my heart.
Even getting my children to our car, down a steep flight of stairs and across an alley to a parking lot requires Safran to be on my back in the Ergo and Jubilee either in my arms or a sling. It's how we do it these days, part of the routine, rarely disputed by my spirited toddler. He's even known to wear his baby, Sinclair, occasionally as well.
Enjoy the pictures!
