Eh.. Usually if the baby refused to be in a carrier, they will tend to remain like that until they grow up and won't be able to fit in.. LOL. I heard these from my ex colleagues.. Heh.
1st - Bought MIM ring sling. Try on dear daughter when she is 1mth old but she dont like it..she'll cry... Pros for sling is that it can be use up till toddler, good for cover if BF & it can be fold...
2nd - Try to put her own stroller cz I injured my wrist tendon..if carry her on my arms thruout the journey will worsen my condition.. But too bad she dont like it... put her dwn for less than 5mins, she'll cry.. Maybe bcz te stroller is not reversible handle.. face out so she cant see me tts y she cry?
3rd - Try to use the normal baby carrier brand Bibi/Bebe? At first she dont like it.. after few tries, she luvs it... but the prob is, the back of the carrier is not hard enough.. so i need to support the back (the hard board for baby head).. The strap is insecure... will slip off when i bend dwn or tangle when i carry my big bag!
I bought a Baby Bjorn Active Carrier wit lumbar support which is good for my back...dear daughter luvs it!! Easy to use.... secured strap! Intend to buy Synergy but up to 11kg i tink... Active Carrier can be use up to 12kg & abit cheaper... Retailing @ $247
I dont really like stroller cz ... errmmmm...if take public transport like bus, i need to fold it... I always go out alone wit dear daughter so hw am I going to fold it by myself? Tts y i prefer carrier... Maybe when dear daughter abit heavy then i gt no choice but to use stroller...
Always think positive...
my dear son first outing was to pediatrician and with me to my gynae for my post 1st check and his injection, 1 week old. I slinged him.
After a month or 2 months old wen my mother in law give the green light then put him in stroller.
so i using both together. The sling only a few months till I got preggy ten i stopped using and he is always in stroller since.
If i go shopping, still prefer to sling him cos save time, no need to wait for lifts cos no one will let you in, no need to squeeze too.
can move freely and faster too.
Have tried sarong sling before. Takes some learning curve.
May want to try pouch slings, as they are less cumbersome.
If you prefer backpack slings, they say the Ergo carrier is good. However when carrying baby in front, he can only face inwards.Alternatively try the Pikkolo or Becco, soft structured carrier. Can carry baby till about 16kg i think..
I am currently using the Hippy Chick hip seat for my 8 month old girl.
