i had forgotten on how easy babywearing is. it helps me a lot during my temporary SAHM period. aidan is used to baby swing to sleep, me on the other side, do not like the idea of baby swing. bukan apa, nnt leceh la nak membawak buaian ke sana sini. walau mcm mana pun seksa nak tidurkan aidan, i would not surrender to buai. hahah angkuh? ye kut 😛 the choice is mine.
lagipun, with jumping and running adam, it is no way i could pat aidan to sleep. as i’ve blogged earlier, the first couple of days of being (temporary) full time mother wear me off, especially ‘put aidan to sleep’ part. killing my nerves! bukan sbb aidan tak nak tdo, dia baru je nak doze off, adam came and asked “hi brother, watcha doing?” in his happiest pitch.
i selongkar my room for the sling. oh where are you dear sling? i could not find it. where was my old trusted MT? yeah, i found it. terus je pakai kat kangaroo style. memula nak pakai backcarry, but i didn’t trust myself because aidan was igglywigglycranky. okllah, front carry pun front carry lah.
aidan pun zzZZzz, aku tak perasan while i was busy doing something else. then after that, back carry je.
aidan did not like the idea of being wear sblm ni. thus, i melemparkan semua babywearing gear. i even tetas my ring sling.. i do have a handmade ring sling but i did not use it frequently. salah jahit rasanya, pakai tak selesa.
masa memula pakai sling, i had received ‘mcm bibik’ comments. haiii these ‘non babies’ ladies tak tau ke even artists pun wear their baby. i wore aidan at tesco, yes, i received a lot of ‘unapproved’ looks. hahah.. ada satu tu, even bisik2 “baby dia tak jatuh ke?” – masa ni mmg tgh freestyle pilih sayur/bawang.
skrg, pegi mana2 kena bawak.. bukan sbb aidan nak masuk sling. tapi sbb adam mesti tdo punyalah! takkan nak carry adam yg dah panjang tu. so adam masuk stroller, aidan masuk sling.
now, i’m eyeing some fabrics to make MT. my old MT dah buruk sgt. tak cun dah. itu bukti MT tu dah sgt berjasa utk menjaga adam dan aidan.
