A cropped, but otherwise unaltered, picture of me now, wearing the latest in accesories:
In the mirror in our entryway, trying out a sling for SteelyKid. Hair's longer than I'd like, glasses are the previous version (current version got twisted when they were awkwardly packed in the hospital, and then I popped the screw trying to un-twist them, and I haven't had the opportunity to get them repaired yet), but at least I showered today.
I'm still not sure about the sling—the angle SteelyKid's head is at doesn't look comfortable, but my torso is narrow and there doesn't seem to be any other way—but she was falling asleep in it when I took the picture:
and protested when I tried to take her out of it. Since she's been colicky (oh, the joys of discovering yet another food that probably causes her pain!), and is now sound asleep, I'll risk it for a little while longer.
Comments on babies in slings (note the specificity) are welcome. Other advice is not.
