My baby is a total sling baby. Since she was born, I have had her in the sling. She would stay in there all day. Sarah Ann does not love the stroller or the shopping cart. She will do fine just attached to my body. I even climbed a waterfall this summer with her in my sling.
Babywearing has been my key to a happy baby. I could write forever on the benefits, but Dr. Sears has covered most of that already. I came across a photo of Sarah Ann wearing a sling with her "baby" in it. It rejuvenated me! I have never seen a 15-month-old doing the maternal things that she does. She saw her sister's play sling and immediately wanted to put it on. As you can see in the picture, she was glowing with pride and delight. She knew exactly what she had achieved. It made me know that my efforts have all been worth it.
