The lifesaver


No, I'm not just trying to strike a pose, I'm capturing the ease and use of the sling Christina made me. I'm not that great at using it yet, BUT- the many tries I have made with it have been lifesaving. I think Leah has acid or gastric reflux. Monica had gastric reflux, but Leah's symptoms are a bit worse. She will spew fountains and jet streams from her mouth and nose when it hits her. She cries kind of often and the only way I can get her to calm down some days is to snuggle her very close to my chest and hold her. This happens the most in the evenings right when I need to start getting dinner ready. I love my sling! I can cook, do the dishes, clean up, sit at the table, play games with Monica and Leah stays nice and snug as a bug in a rug all happy and content!
