OK, not technically a sleep issue, but many mums find their babies sleep much better in a sling. I have a lovely Didymos sling that has been stuffed down the side of the bed for months since Loudboy got too big for the front carry position. Last week I dug it out, took a deep breath, swung him over my shoulders and tried the back carry. A bit tricky to tie when he was wriggling about, but he loved it. And he fell asleep in a very cute way with his head against the back of my neck. I’m going to try it more often: it’s great in London but not so good if you have lots of shopping to carry. Any suggestions of failsafe back-carry positions for wrap slings are welcome!
