First of all. 80 lbs is amazing!

And putting babies in those things are a pita. I got nothing in the way of suggestions though. I kinda hold her with one arm and fight to put her feet in with the other.

Congrats on the weight lose!!! That's incredible!!

Carter stick his legs straight down when we got to put him in so we don't have problems with it now. When he was younger we'd wrap an arm around his chest under his arms and use the other to guide his feet in.

I agree 80lbs is incredible!!! Congratulations!!

I also do what Coreena does, wrap one arm around him just under his arms and guide his little feet in with the other hand. When he wants to go in one of the toys it's easier, if I'm trying to put him in one when he doesn't want to it's darn near impossible!

WOWZERS!!!! 80 lbs!!!!!!! How did I not know this??!!!

Parker's must have larger feet holes, because I don't ever remember having a problem. I hold him also with one arm under his pits and throw him in, haha....

Wow, on 80 pounds! Share your secret, was it just the walks or did you also have a diet change?
Congrats.

Sorry no advice on your question, haven't had that issue.

Oh geez....ok...thanks ladies...Kaylen has a serious case of JELLY LEGS....she has no interest in standing yet etc etc....thats probably why its so hard to get her in those darn things......I do the same thing...hold her under her arms and try and use my other hand to guide her feet in......just sometimes easier said than done!!! I was hoping someone had a big SECRET to share!!! LOL.....

Oh and as far as the 80 lbs I mean I was overweight b4 I got pregnant and then I gained 60PLUS pounds (I stopped looking....LOL).....so we walk aprox 3-5 miles per day.....and between the laundry, cleaning the house, changing diapers, grocery shopping, paying the bills, making dinner etc etc....I barely find time to EAT!!! ha ha ha!!! I am also VERY active.....gardening, putting Kaylen in the pool etc etc. I literally am moving from 630am to 7pm.....and I mean MOVING!!!!! so honestly it has come off relatively easy....but you figure Kaylen is 8 1/2 months old and I have lost about 80lbs so that is like 10lbs per month and you know in the beginning the first 30 just kind of fell off.....so it has been a work in progress!!!
