Owen does not seem to like being worn. I have a Babyhawk Mai Tei and one of those no sew wraps and he screams the second he is in. Obviously I need to get stuff done and Leila needs me. I just don't know what to do. Anyone else have this experience? What did you do?

I have like 4 or 5 different slings/wraps. Zoe likes the slings, but I find them hard to do anything with while she is in it. I have a Moby wrap, which is new to me and she only likes it facing outwards, not towards me. We are still working on it. DH hates the Moby wrap and thinks it is dangerous or something.

Bella does not like to face in towards me. I have the ktan so I just play with it til I find a position she likes. I hope you can find something that works for you!

I didnt have much luck wearing DD until she was 2 months and then it was only if I had just fed her (she was a boob junky and just wanted boob when she faced me).

^^^That seems to be the problem we are having now that you mention it! He just nuzzles and nuzzles! Ok so I need to be able to face him out asap!

One of mine didn't like to be worn either. I ended up not doing it with her because she seemed to always react negatively to it.

DD didn't like the sling after @1 month too, and I felt like such a failure. She really loved the bjorn with DH after @2 months. I used the sling with her in an upright position, I think she just really loved to be upright,( between the boobs). I have I think 4 different carriers right now in preparation for this new little one.
You WILL find his favorite positions, he's still such a wee guy.

Lil Jimmy didn't like to be worn at all when I first started with him...I just started putting him in it for him to get used to it and he liked it after awhile. I have only ever used a mai tai.

I started with JoJo when she was a couple of days old in the mai tai. She sometimes gets upset but once we start moving she normally falls dead asleep. I couldn't go anywhere by myself with the kids if I didn't wear her so I started early.

I won't face my kids away from me...I don't think it is very good for them since they can't look to me for cues on things. Also they can't nuzzle me which is one thing I think they benfit the most from being worn.

Oh I forgot to mention that we had DD adjusted a couple of times by an Osteopathic Pediatrician that also specialized in Cranial Sacral work in her first weeks/months of life..it made a HUGE difference in her nursing and carrying comfort.

We live in the SERIOUS boondocks too, and still found this Doctor by doing a goggle search for osteopathic pediatrician.

Tessa never liked being worn either beyond the first month or two. Part of the problem probably was she was too hot (it's always warm & humid here, except when she was born, which was the beginning of winter). Every time I tried a sling or carrier, it was no go. I must have tried half a dozen before giving up. At least she was a small baby and still is on the petite side for her age. I had to give up the notion of getting much done. She always did (and still does) like to be held, but it's getting harder and harder with her getting longer & heavier. Now that she's older and playing, playing, playing, I have noticed that the heat really gets to her. Not much will stop her playing and carrying on except being too hot (I grew up in this same area of Texas and I know as a kid we played outside in the dead of summer without slowing down but maybe she takes after DH). She even doesn't sleep well if her legs are covered by pajama pants instead of shorts and DH and I finally realized it was because she was too hot at night.
