Isn't She Lovely?
Harmony has grown up a lot in the last few weeks. She'll be six weeks old tomorrow and she's been smiling at us a ton this week. She's also gotten quite fussy and wants to be held constantly. I use our Baby Bjorn quite a bit to calm her down and get some housework done. This is the first time I've had a Bjorn to use with a newborn; we bought a baby frontpack/backpack way back when Lillian was born and thought we had it covered. It was a pain, though, because whenever I bent over or tried to do anything, the straps would fall off my shoulders. It was impossible to do much other than walk while using it, and even that was a pain because it made my shoulders ache in uncomfortable ways. The only good thing about it was that you could use it as a backpack, which we've probably done a total of 10 times over the years.
The Bjorn, on the other hand, is a dream. I can bend over, load a dishwasher, pick up a room, glancing down occasionally to grin at my adorable baby.
