I have learned a lot by lurking on this board, so thanks for that first of all! DD is now 6 wks old and does not like to be put down. I am happy to snuggle her all day...but my arms are tired, and DH might appreciate me making dinner occasionally. I got a woven wrap (didy Indio) and thought I would wear her around the house in that, but I find myself not really using it except on walks. I leave her in it when we get back from a walk, but it seems to get pulled out of shape once I sit down, with dd slumping and head lolling to one side. Since it takes me awhile to get it all tied and adjusted right in the first place, and with the frequent nursing and changing at this stage, I don't end up putting her back in once I take her out after the walk. I also have a Babyhawk which we really like for shopping trips and also for walks. I haven't really tried this around the house, I guess because in my mind that's what the cuddlier wrap was supposed to be for. But maybe I should try that?
But ideally I would love something that I can easily pop her in and out of while I get things done around the house, and maybe nurse in too. Do you think a ring sling would fit the bill? I was looking at a linen one from SBP. But I just read that RS's can be tricky to adjust, and that you sort of have to adjust before putting baby in, so maybe that isn't the solution I think it is? I don't really want to buy another carrier unless it will suit this purpose and do something that my other ones can't (or at least, aren't doing in actual practice). So wdyt, should I just practice more with the wrap? Learn other carries that might work better? (so far I've just been doing FWCC) Try the mei tai around the house? Or do I need a RS? TIA for any insight!
