Being Kanga

When thinking back to Q's babyhood, two areas of personal improvement (mine, not his) come to mind. I never really got the hang of the pump. And I never mastered using a baby sling. I'm determined to increase my success at both, this time around.

I was impressed by Kristen and Christina being able to roam BlogHer with babies in tow, and they kindly gave me some excellent sling recommendations. I haven't had a lot of luck with the ring-based slings, so I'm planning to try out the Rockin' Baby Pouch. Wanna help me choose which one?

There's a basic black and white:

My favorite colors, red and black.

Another red and black:

And now for something completely different:

Thoughts? I think I prefer either the third or fourth design.

and I was going to say I like #s 1 and 2 ... but they are all pretty.

How's that for So Not Helpful?

#3 gets my vote! I like the black and tan pattern.

I would love to hear your review on this - I didn't have a sling with Andrew but am definitely going to invest in one this time around!

I love #3. (Actually, for ME I'd do #4, but I can totally see you with #3.) Plus that tan is the perfect puke-mask color. You're welcome.

Is that like a zebra pattern (#2)? LOVE it.

All are great choices for your cute new little one.

I think I like #3!

I like the third, or perhaps the first. But I think #3. I am hoping to work the sling this time, too, and maybe not to NEED the pump!

Pumping did not work the first time for me. But did much better this time. I realized a lot of it is the pump and I wish I had the Medela pump in style the first time around. Plus with my first I was so frazzled. I had a much more laid back approach the second time around which probably helped.

I just got one of these pouches and was going to try it out this weekend. The pouch I bought when the baby was born is not adjustable. He's gotten bigger, and I have not gotten smaller (darn pregnancy weight!).

I might have another product for you to try out-not a carrier, but something else (it looks great, but my baby is too big). E-mail me and I'll see if I can get it for you.

I really like #1. :-)
