I’ll carry him for as long as I can

From nursing to babywearing, I’ll savor the moments of my last baby for as long as possible. Read more in this post sponsored by Ergobaby.

When I had my daughter years ago, I was a single mom who was thankful to be blessed with a low maintenance baby. Although she had a lot of energy, Ayva was content to sit and observe the world around her. She was also really independent early on, and it was such a huge help for this busy working mama doing everything on her own.

My Jamie is nothing like that.

While Ayva thrived on schedules, Jamie has yet to find a routine that he loves. He doesn’t like to be alone, and he needs very intentional attention. As an example, when he’s nursing, if I even think about checking my phone for something, he kicks my hand. Needless to say, babywearing suits him.

Well, as long as I’m doing it on his terms.

While other moms talk about how awesome it is to wear their little one while they’re cleaning, I have no idea what that’s like. Jamie loves being worn while we’re out and about, but when we’re at home, he wants both of my hands on him, both of my eyes looking at him—did I mention he loves attention?

I think we may be having a breakthrough, though. I wore my baby until her feet were past my knees, but only wore her on my back or front. She was really flexible and didn’t mind either position. I remembered that my Ergobaby Omni360 can be used in all carry positions, including the hip, so I decided to give that a try. Guess what, y’all? He loves it! Whenever I carry him on my hip, he sinks into my side, and I’m free to do whatever I need to do.

I’ve been using the Ergobaby Omni360 since Jamie was a tiny little babe. I always appreciated that I didn’t have to use an infant insert. Now that he’s a few months older, I’m thrilled that I don’t have to get another carrier. It’s really the only carrier I need because it offers every position that I’ll need until he’s 33 lbs.

As different as Jamie is from Ayva, I appreciate the individual personalities of both of my babies. I actually appreciate that Jamie needs extra attention because he’s my last baby. From nursing to babywearing, this is it. I want to savor this moment for as long as I can.
