She used to love it but now she struggles and arches her back, pushing herself away from me Sometimes she is OK but if she's tired she'll struggle and push until I put her down. I've tried her in my ring sling (front and hip carry), mei tai (front and back) and wrap and she hates them all! This is new to me because DD1 hated being put down. Any tips or should I just give up and dust off the buggy? She is almost 6 mo.
ah. no recommendations, i'm afraid (not got to that stage yet!) one of my FB friends has recommended a Freedom in the past, but it looks like a standard one to me... I'd still go and try some on, then maybe look on ebay or freecycle for one you like?
i know that loads of others use slings of all types, though, so I'm bumping so you get more views.
Hello EauRouge, was that you on SuperNanny the other night, still bf a 3 year old?
Yes Ergos are pricey but last til they are much older. I got a bargain secondhand from someone on here and its really comfy, especially on the back. Am thinking of getting a new one its so good. ds also went through all that pushing away around 6 months - i think it was the start of his manic need to move and explore not necessarily sling hatred.
Do you have a slingmeet you could borrow one from to try it? Usually its just a few quid plus deposit. Beco is similar type.
