When I had my first baby (Peter), a lot of people asked if I was going to have some sort of sling or carrier. I swore up and down that I never would! I was always nervous that the baby would somehow fall out. Things change over time!
When I found out I was pregnant this time, I was really worried about handling a new baby and Michael. At 4, he is my busiest child thus far. I started doing a lot of research. I knew I wanted a pouch because rings and straps make me fearful the baby will fall out. I finally settled on a ComfyJoey.
I ordered it a couple of months before Alex was born. Before I talk about the pouch itself, I have to say how wonderful the customer service was. Ayesha emailed me before and after I got it, and she double checked measurements, etc, to make sure I had the right size.
When Alex was born, it took me about a week before I used it. Quite honestly, it was on my dresser and I had forgotten about it. Then, on that fateful first day of soccer, I used it. It was love at first wearing! She settled in and slept through not one but 2 games. The next morning, I thought to myself, why not try it for Mass? Again, it was fabulous!
Since then, I have been using it for all kinds of outings. On Saturday, I had another realization. I needed to get some cleaning done, and Alex was fussing. I wondered if I really could do it with her in the sling. Guess what? I was able to vacuum quite easily, and get some other tasks done, including working at the computer (being able to type with both hands!).
I love my ComfyJoey. Not sure why I waited so long!
