Hey Lauren,

Definitely post pics if you can! I am so overwhelmed w/ trying to figure out what kind of carrier to get, so I would love to see how yours works!

I think I am going to get a Maya pouch too....a sling looks like it might be a little too advanced for me. :) I figure I can start there and get another one if I want to, like Stephanie said. What positions have you put Caden in? Is it easy to navigate? I swear I am the most uncoordinated person so I need something simple. How is the weight -- does he feel really heavy or anything?

Can't wait to see the pics!

The Maya Pouch is super easy to use.

Cool. Very helpful. I think primarily I would also be using the hip hold; that way I can use it at the mall, grocery store, etc. Like you we were using the Bjorn but that is getting uncomfortable. I will go back to the website and read up on it more carefully but I'm glad to hear you've had a good experience with it!

How is your transition to being a sahm been going?

Take care,
Caitlin

I am glad you like it!! We just moved from DC to IN (you are in MD, right?) so being a sahm got a lot harder since I don't know anyone here except for the ILs. I'm going back to school in the fall (had to transfer to a master's program at IU) though and will need to get a PT job, so my time being home w/ dd is going to be ending soon. I miss interacting with adults in a professional environment so I am looking forward to going back to work and school, but I am going to miss being home with her SO much. I have to get on the daycare thing, which sucks....hard to find the right environment. The lady my SIL sends her baby to takes *10* children and she does not have any help! OMG, I could not leave her somewhere where there was a 1:10 ratio! But at least the daycare prices here are not like DC - that was outrageous. Some of the places I saw were $1500 a month!

Anyway, thanks for the pouch help. I am going to order it today!!
