It has always brought me tremendous joy to "wear" my babies, but I had thought that Meghan was past the stage of slinging and that Kristen was still too small. Happily, they both proved me wrong within days of each other! Meghan was feeling particularly out of sorts one morning last week, so, on a whim, I brought out the trusty old sling I've had since Dylan's infancy. She settled right in against my shoulder and we were both instantly soothed.
And late yesterday afternoon, after holding and/or nursing Kristen for most of the day, I decided to let her try the sling I liked so much when Meghan was a newborn. She loved it! She fell fast asleep and I was finally able to accomplish much of what needed to be done around the house with two free hands!
