~I swear that I am the biggest dummy when it comes to baby wraps and carriers. We have a Maya Wrapand I used to have a Moby Wrap but for some reason I can't find it. I never used either with Annika and after struggling with the Maya Wrap for the past hour I give up on it too. When I put Annabel in the Maya Wrap tummy to tummy her head ends up right under my chin and her lower body/legs are past my waist. So if I were to carry her in it she'd bump her head on my chin the entire time and I wouldn't be able to sit because her lower body is in my way. I think that it's because the girls were both very long babies and I am very short! I may have to try a Bjorn carrier since I see so many people succesfully using those, maybe I can find a used one for cheap someplace.

~My aunt from Arizona is coming on Thursday and will be staying with us till Thursday. We're looking forward to her visit. I will have to take the girls, by myself, to the airport to pick her up which should be interesting. I haven't taken them anywhere alone yet!

~Potty training has stopped for now still. We are going to possibly try again next week. I'm going to put panties on her again but to save myself from cleaning up pee from the floors, couch, and chairs I'm going to put a waterproof diaper cover over the panties. I figure she'll still feel the wetness from the panties but I won't have a mess! Hopefully it works. She keeps asking to use the potty but I still don't think she gets it.


  1. Hey Christina,
    I have read some research that Bjorn-type carriers (facing out, all the pressure on the spine) is not good for the baby's development. I would go with the Ergo.

    Potty training isn't going well with Samantha either. Maybe they're not ready? I'm thinking of waiting until she's 2.5...

  2. When you put her in the wrap tummy to tummy, try pulling her legs/knees up. She shouldn't have her legs dangling yet, I don't think. Try pulling the fabric down under her more. She should be up almost to your chin, but certainly not bumping it. I have a Baby K'Tan and haven't tried it with my baby yet because she's still really little and I'm nervous, but I'll let you know how it works with her. I'm not short, but I will be happy to let you know if it works well with an infant. I loved it with my older daughter.

    Real Mom Reviews just happens to have a review up now on Baby K'Tan carriers. I thought I'd share the link with you since I mentioned having one.
