One of the reasons I was so psyched to try the Ergo is that my daughter is a big girl. Apparently mama's milk is doing her body good, because at 6 months she is 29 inches long and weighs 19lbs! She's the same size my son was when he was a year old! This has presented a bit of a challenge for us. She's already too big to be worn in many infant carries in a sling and my back was beginning to bear the brunt. Stretchy wraps are too stretchy now and my mei tei is MIA. So the Ergo could not have arrived at a better time!
Ergo is incredible. I could wear her all day, and wearing a 20 lb infant can be tiresome.
|Yep, I'm nursing!|
Our first trip out with the Ergo we hit the library, and as luck would have it, she needed to nurse. It was quick and easy to quickly put her to the breast, and thanks to the attached hood, I was able to cover her head so she wouldn't get totally distracted by everyone around her, which has been a big problem lately. In no time, she was fast asleep and I was checking out books with the rest of the family. Then I had my husband try. He quickly got her in with a little adjustment and wore her through the store. There was a lot less adjusting than we normally endure when sharing a ring sling and we were able to avoid the hassle of a wrap for a quick 10 minute grocery trip. And doesn't he just look handsome baby wearing?
