Abel is having a hard time with getting down for naps especially in the evenings, I usually take them down to the playground so he'd fall asleep in the stroller and Dani can play but its fall and it rains a lot so most days we can't go.
If I carry him around in the flat in a sling he'd fall asleep but my problem is my back, I've always had a problem with my back, I have a "bent" spine and I can't carry anything on my back or shoulders for long, not even a simple bag - with every pg its been getting worse (I know I need to see a dr but just haven't had time) anyways
I have a simple cloth tie-sling and a maya mama-baby sling (I got that because it is a softer more stretchy material and not so hot for a summer baby) I can use both on both shoulders but still my back hurts like crazy from wearing Abel (I couldn't wear Dani from when he was 3months)
Is there any sling you know of that is good for carrying heavy babies? not so hard on ones back? or one that I can carry him on my back with (I can't tie him on my back alone since he doesn't sit yet) I'm not sure I will be able to talk myself into buying another sling (the maya sling was expensive enough) but who knows
I need to get things done and the only way I can get around in town is taking Dani in the stroller and Abel in a sling, I so wish I could do it without suffering all the rest of the day from back pain.
Dorothy mom to Dani (2) and Abel (4months)
