Whether you’re a police wife, a working parent, a stay at home parent, or a grandparent, kids can be needy and it can be exhausting.
With D, we quickly found out that he was one of those babies that likes to be held all the time. At first, it was a nightmare because I couldn’t get anything done and Mr. Troop and I would switch off on house chores and baby-holding.
We realized this wasn’t going to always work, so we invested in a baby carrier. This thing was the stuff of dreams! D was born early, and a lot of carriers require an insert for infants, but our Ergobaby didn’t and we were all about saving money!
Did you know that you can babywear and do just about anything? You can hike, do yoga, clean the house, sit down, breastfeed, etc. It’s AMAZING! I didn’t know how useful these things could be until we finally had one.
It’s the number one item I recommend to new moms and it’s the item I will be getting for my family and friends when they have babies. In fact, now that J is born, we’re going to purchase another one because many of the Ergobaby carriers can be used from 7-45 pounds! It’s great for trips to the zoo, long walks, and just getting snuggles.
