When you live with a newborn baby the first thing you lose is the use of your arms. Babies like to be held (especially mine) and you quickly realize how hard it is to do anything with a baby in your arms. So you just sit on the couch, hold him and watch TV all day. That gets old real quick. Dishes start to pile up, as does the laundry and the backyard starts to look like a jungle. All you want to do is put the kid down and clean the house but he’s just not having it.
The “baby harness” we have is a perfect solution. The baby still feels like he is being held and I can actually get some shit done. The problem is that Donovan has yet to decide if he likes the harness or not. Sometimes I put him in it and he’s chill. He will look around for a while then pass out. Other times he acts like I have just destroyed his life and screams the second I put him in.
I’m hoping he comes to terms with the harness soon; I really want my arms back.
