Ds has always loved his sling, but suddenly over the past few days, he hates it! I took him for a bit of grocery shopping last Wednesday and he was great. Then in the subsequent days he would get upset and I would try to put him in there and he would have nothing to do with it. He would stand up in it and I couldn't get it around him. Today I went to pick up a few more things and he freaked out as soon as I tried to put him in there. He kept standing up so fine, I tried leaving his legs out and tried loosening or tightening it. He kept screaming and screaming. I had just nursed him so he wasn't hungry. When I would take him out he would quiet down somewhat but still screamed. Usually, even if he screams when first taken out of hte car seat, she shuts up as soon as he goes in the sling, and falls asleep in no time flat. And of course, suddenly 3:15 on a Tuesday afternoon was the busiest grocery day every in that parking lot, ugh! Not a very good ad for AP! Usually he is so quiet and comfy and everyone comments on it.
Needless to say, I just packed him back up and left, really annoyed as traffic was really busy too. I hope this doesn't become a habit. I can't imagine lugging around his carseat and putting it in a cart, or pushing around a stroller in the supermarket and getting just a few things at at a time! Dh and I also had an AP related argument this morning as he felt ds had to learn to calm himself down sometimes, and he wasn't picking him up, he was trying to teach him how to relax and breathe. Yeah, good luck there buddy! You can try that when he can actually understand what you are saying, right now he needs you to pick him up and shush him and pat his back. Of course I had to deal with the aftermath and ds was clinging all morning. Maybe that's why he was having a rough day and didn't want to be in the sling? Who knows.
