One of the most common "complaints" about having a baby is that it becomes more complicated to get things done around the house. That can cause a lot of frustration. The best thing I ever did as a mother (and I did it when Ronja was little, fortunately) was to learn to carry my baby in different ways. It's a win-win! You get that precious closeness, baby settles better, and mama (or daddy!) can get things done. Or just drink coffee in peace. Also, I am a firm believer in carrying babies as an essential part of our continuum, of it being our natural way. I think it is vital both emotionally, physically and spiritually, for both the one who carries and the one carried. It's all about love! And getting those dust bunnies out of the way. ⭐️
Also, as I have discovered as my kids have grown, carrying siblings is a wonderful way of bonding, feeling responsible for the smallest ones, and helping the family out. Ronja has carried Falk quite a bit, and yesterday it was Ulv's turn. She had him in the ergo-carrier while I put the other two to bed. What would I do without this girl?
