wore my baby on my back for the first time!
It was great!! I have an infantino mei tai which I am really loving the more I use it! I found a blog or something that showed how to put a baby on your back by putting the baby on the mei tai and then putting the straps under their arms and picking them up like that and and putting them on your back. It worked great...it took me forever to do and I would like her to be a bit higher up on my back and maybe a little tighter to my body but she felt really secure. She's almost 5 months.
I can't believe I've never tried this before. It allowed me to pick up all the toys strewn around the house, tidy, and get lunch for my older DD. Normally, I have to either listen to her cry while I do these things, or wear her on my front which is doable but gets in the way of all the bending down.
Wow is all I can say! haha I'm sure all you babywearing experts are like "duh!"
Any tips to perfecting the art of wearing a mei tai on your back with a little one? or doing it safely when going to the grocery store, etc. It did kinda make me nervous that I couldn't see her.
