I got pregnant with the full knowledge that the first year you are pretty much devoted to your child. I knew that she would need me 24/7 and that my desires would be out the window for a while. I am okay with this. As long as I get enough sleep and take care of myself, I’m happy to take care of my baby. I have been using the Moby pretty much constantly since she was born which frees me up to do the other things that need to be done. That doesn’t mean they get done, but I get more done and am less stressed about it than if I were rushing to get stuff done during a short nap or time in the swing. Also, she really enjoys it, but as she gets older, heavier and more interested in the world, using the moby is getting more difficult and HOT in this Florida heat! I have been researching other variations of a front carry, but it seems that until they are sitting up on their own (another three months from now) I’m stuck with the newborn positions which Lorelei is growing to hate unless she is nursing and if I’m only nursing in it, then what is the point??
Sigh. I am determined to keep trying because I enjoy carrying my baby, but perhaps I need to look at a different type if carrier? I have heard really good things about the Ergo Baby Carrier. It is pricey, but I have been able to find a few on Craigslist for cheap. I will need to do some research to see if it is for me. I’m not sure anything can compare to the Moby!
