I’ve been getting some good use out of the mei tai that I ordered fromStrawberry Baby. It makes so many activities loads easier! Now, if I need both hands, but Isaiah wants to be held, I just put him on my back and keep doing the things that need to be done.
Tonight, I made supper with Isaiah riding on my back. He thought it was wonderfully fun. Every once in a while, he’d try to pull himself forward to grab something on the counter, but he couldn’t reach. It was a huge help because, for once, I didn’t have to worry about him reaching up and burning himself on the stove while I was trying to cook. He’s so curious and wants to be a part of everything, but sometimes it’s so dangerous! He bounced on my back and sang while I worked. He had such a good time.
It’s so nice to be able to do my normal activities when I need to without worrying about what trouble Isaiah might be getting into. Some days, like when he’s teething, Isaiah wants to be held constantly, which means I can’t get anything done at all. With the mei tai, I can put him on my back and he gets the physical contact he needs while I’m still able to get the work done.
