In preparation for Igor's appearance, I've been getting my babywearing gears together. Amy, for whom I made those STR Monkeys earlier in the year, made me a sling in exchange for them:
I think the sling is going to have a fairly steep learning curve, but that it'll be worth it once I do get it figured out. Coincidentally, Amy's most recent blog post is about babywearing!
I also spent a couple of afternoons last week making myself a Mei Tai-type carrier, which I think will be much easier to figure out - well, once I figure out the logistics of actually getting a baby into it without dropping her!
Filling the carriers is my teddy bear, who has been with me since my burst appendix eleven years ago. I think it's very cool that you can use these even while round almost to bursting with another baby - pictures of that tomorrow! I've just exploded in the last week or two.
