I’ve been spending a lot of time wearing Hudson in his Sakura Bloom ring sling. He loves it! Provided he’s not hungry or sporting a heavy diaper, he will grow calm or fall asleep almost the instant I put him in it. I often still push his stroller along with me–having not quite mastered the art of carrying everything I need for long journeys along with him, and in case I need a break from having his hot little body up against me; it’s funny how passers-by tend to see us and then crane their necks to see who or what is in the (empty) stroller.
The most comical moments, however, are when Aron wears the baby. Hudson looks even tinier wrapped tightly against Aron’s large six-foot-eight frame and just about everyone remarks or squeals when they see the two of them (usually just after they have passed and believe they’re out of earshot). When we were in Central Park, the attention became overwhelming for poor Aron and he hid around a corner while I dashed into the bathroom at the Children’s Zoo!
We also have an Ergo as an option, which will likely get more use when Hudson gets bigger, but we’re especially loving the sling for these hot August days (the Ergo’s infant insert is hot!).
What’s your preferred carrier?
