Baby sling

A little while ago I made a baby sling for Mingli.  This is something I have been meaning to do since before he was born but have just gotten around to it.  The first time I put Mingli in the sling he screamed.  I had him laying in it facing me, the way you would hold a newborn.  I was a little discouraged, but I had seen another way to hold slightly older babies, once they could hold up their heads fairly well, where they are sitting in the sling facing forward with they back against your chest.  I tried this, and Mingli loves it.  He is so much happier now in the store, at the library, and sometimes just around the house because he can be in his baby sling and be close to me.  He is also able to see so much better than if he were in his car seat at places like the store, so I feel like he is getting more stimulation.  I wish I had made the sling earlier, but I am glad I have it now.
