What is the best way to get comfortable using a sling and gain enough confidence at it so that I will not transmit my nervousness about it to my baby? So far she has really not enjoyed her carriers but then again I wasn't really sure what I was doing and I could tell she wasn't placed correctly the first few times and it took some adjusting. In the mean time, she really screamed at me so I would keep taking her out. I ordered some slings and I really really want to use them, and I want to make sure she gets comfortable in them easily, without lots of screaming and crying.
Should I always take her out if she starts crying, or try and see if she'll settle down?
Should I sit with her in it and do lots of breastfeeding so she associates the two?
Should I just go about my normal activities, throwing in some vacuuming, dishwashing to calm her down if she seems fussy?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Ugh, I'm nervous already. lol
