    So true how two-year-olds struggle to listen. I feel like I tell my kids things over and over before they actually hear me. My favorite line was the last one:
    Perhaps he wishes I would listen when he tells me to “clean it up”.
    Loved it. Hope you keep doing FMF – it’s awesome!

    Oh, I think you did a fantastic job!! And I can so relate! My oldest is 10 and I STILL am wishing that she would listen. 🙂
    So, I clicked on your link because of your picture. I have a newborn and would like to wear her. 🙂 What are you using in the picture?

    Thanks for your kind words!
    In the pic. I am using a Moby wrap, which is a stretchy wrap (basically, a long piece of stretchy fabric that you tie around you in a particular way and then pop your baby in ,in such a way that they are supported knee to knee,with their bum lower than their hips, by three layers of the fabric.) If you go on youtube and search for pocket wrap cross carry it might make more sense than my description! I loved my Moby for when my son was little. There are lot of different brands of stretchy wrap though some are more stretchy…some are cooler than others.
    Do you have a sling library near you? It is often easier to make a decision if you can try one out for real.
    You might find this post I wrote useful: and in this post: I tried to explain a little about the different types of carrier, as that is something I found difficult to get my head round to start with. The babywearing links in my sidebar have tons of info too. Hope that helps! Please feel free to ask any other question and I will do my best to help you.
