The mei tai that I made works with little babies too!  Meggan and Rachel, Mom will show you how to do it when she gets home.  (Actually it’s not hard at all.  You basically just put the baby in the curled up “fetal” position on your front and tie the straps across the back rather than under the bottom.)  She’s still a little too small for me to be able to move quickly in it because her head isn’t really supported by it.  But I wore her in it when we were out today for appointments and it worked great.   And it’s making it possible for me to type this blog entry right now!

And in some unrelated notes:

1.  See those adorable cheeks?  Yeah – we were at the doctor’s office today and she weighs 9 pounds, 1 ounce now.  At 3 1/2 weeks, she’s two pounds, 2 ounces over her birth weight.  She’s going to become a pro body builder at this rate.  She’s getting chubby thighs and arms now too.

2. See that incredibly cute hat?  Kristen gets the credit for that one.  The yarn is amazingly soft, has a gorgeous vintage pink button for the chin strap that you can’t see, and it makes me want to learn how to knit.  We’re in love with it.  But more in love with Eliana of course.

    I’m glad you know how to use it with newborns Meggan! I thought I remembered Rachel saying that she had to wait until Grace was older to use the mei tai because she was too small so I was just glad that we’d figured out how to use it with small babies too.
