Just found the best way to get my baby to sleep when she is fighting it. (Won't fall asleep while nursing and doesn't want to be put down for a second) Wear her while doing chores. I think she finally just gets bored to sleep. My new best friend right now is my hotsling, it finally fits perfectly for the hip carry.

I just got my new Gypsy Mama sling yesterday & am so excited to start using it. Just wanted to share my excitement. ;)

I bought my Storkenweige at a store called Nest in Asheville, NC. I believe they have a website and may sell things online. Good Luck!

I recently purchased a ring sling for our upcoming arrival. I'm looking forward to trying it out. We used regular carriers last time around, and I was dissatisfied because the boys legs would go purple, so we switched to using a stroller. I hope the whole hands free aspect of the sling will help with parenting two 2 1/2 year olds.

Do you know any stores online that sell Storkenweiges?

I love my Storkenwiga (sp?) or Stork Wrap in German for the newborn-6 month stage. It's like a moby but made out of a more secure, double woven organic cotton. I would totally recommend it to everyone that gets tired of readjusting the Moby! I just bought a Beco Butterfly II and compared to the Ergo Carrier (I tried my friends' several times) it is way more comfy and compared to the Bjorn it's heavenly. I'm not trying to advertise anything, I just know that I love when people recommend things that are worth checking out. Beco's are made in CA and there are Organic Cotton options, and lots of cute patterns. My petite 9 mo. son loves it, front or back carrying.

I wear my baby while doing housework, especially vacuuming, while cooking--not over the stove, on walks, to feed horses, to water plants, etc...I started with the moby wrap and found it cumbersome after a while. Then I moved to the forward facing Bjorn which she loved until she became too heavy for my back. Now she uses a steel framed backpack for all outdoor and community activities and the Ergo baby carrier for home chores. She loves it and will frequently take a nap while I am doing housework. I dont leave her in either too long -- the Ergo tends to leave red marks on the back of her legs. She never complains but it bothers me. I especially like wearing her when out in the community, like shopping, it gives me a much greater sense of security that no one could ever grab her while I have my back turned. I also have the Maya sling but dont use it very often anymore either. I actually feel a sense of sadness when I see babies being lugged around in their carseats- this is not the way God intended I am sure. People got a kick out of seeing my little baby's head sticking out of my coat all winter. I got alot of great smiles for that.
