Let me carry you
How to carry a baby? Now there's a question. With all the health professionals in the world hopping about offering me help, no one seems to be able to say ' this is a good way for you to carry your baby etc' which is sort of surprising really. Perhaps the assumption is that my husband is my carer and therefore I will never be alone or want to go anywhere with my son without someone helping me. So anyway I have been looking at baby carriers. You know these things you where on your chest with the baby hanging in them? Well it looks sooooo easy I'm ashamed at how I just assumed Id be able to throw him in one and that would be it. Oh no it doesn't work like that, these things are not easy to put on and not easy top get baby into. Currently I'm trying out 2 of them, neither of which Isak likes. He whinges and whines and creates horribly which then makes me feel like a totally hopeless and inadequate mother!! Well I know that's not true but it doesn't help. anyway at this point in time I have yet to take him out on my own although I'm intending to take him for a medical appt next week in Newcastle without assistance. So we shall just have to work on it and I will have to harden my heart to his complaints!
