I think I finally have the sling figured out again.  Yesterday I finally got it to ‘feel right’ again and walked around the house for a while with the sling.  Haven’t attempted it in public yet, and I am going to have to get something that can be nursed in without pulling up my shirt besides the pajama top that I have if I want to go out a lot with it.  (ok, this is more of a want, simply because there will be a lot of extra material that will be overwhelming when she is this small) Zane was a bit older when I discovered the sling and didn’t need to nurse all the time at that stage, so it wasn’t as much of an issue.

I noticed that she doesn’t get the “Harlequin Effect” look as much.  (a phenomena where half of her face is red, the other half white after she is done nursing…according to the LC, this isn’t unheard of, especially in early babies).  It was sort of freaky looking while it lasted.  I still see it to some degree, but nothing like the striking look she had in the earliest weeks.

  • I doubt that we can ever successfully impose values or attitudes or behaviors on our children – certainly not by threat, guilt, or punishment. But I do believe they can be induced through relationships where parents and children are growing together. Such relationships are, I believe, build on trust, example, talk, and caring. — Fred Rogers
