Test driving the Hip Hammock

It’s important to carry your baby safely (or so they’ve told me).  So we’ve decided to get the Hip Hammock, a high-tech kiddy-toting sling.  The fact that it comes with an 8-page manual worries me.  The fact that I can’t put it on without help, even when the test subject is a 2-pound stuffed bear, worries me more.

At any rate, here’s a photo from our first dry run.  “Look, Alex, there’s our tour bus!  Leaving without us!  I really have to learn to put this thing on faster!”

(Notice the terror-stricken expression on the bear.  I have a feeling I’m going to be seeing that a lot.  Notice the vaguely confused expression on me.  I have a feeling everyone else is going to be seeing that a lot.)

  3. Hey Jay, Maybe you can carry around a sac of potatoes around on your hip and arm to build up enough strength to carry a 16lb little girl. If it can wriggle and say “down!”, You’ld really br ahead of the learning curve..LOL 🙂 We’re sharing your excitement…….Joann
