Got a sling from Karaush on trial for a week. I love it, well it looks nice but Willow hates it. She was crying when I got it out and screaming by the time I tried to put her in it. I don't if I should try again or be glad I did the try before you buy thing.

I'd try again, if she was crying before hand she prob wouldnt have been keen on trying something new.

Wait til shes happy/calm and try again ;)

Agree with LynniferT - try again when she is happy :)

I have tried it again with the same results. She wasn't crying until I opened the parcel, it was when she saw it she started crying - I'm not sure how she knew what it was though.
She has decided she doesn't like it and that's that, I think.

What type of sling is it? Leon has swings with slings sometimes he hates it, sometimes he loves it, even as a baby x

I am not really clued up on baby wearing. It's soft material with some buckles??
The reason I wanted it was Willow is getting to a point were she doesn't want to be in the pram but can't/doesn't want to walk very far so I thought she could walk some of the way and be carried the rest of the way.

Kim-have you tried wearing it straight from the house/wearing around the house? My lo didn't his when he associated it with not being to walk himself so was just thinking. Also maybe putting it on gradually as you walk around? X

Seren took this so it's more a photo of the tv with me at the side.
This is the one and only time I got her in the sling and it was only for 5 minutes. She wouldn't have her arms in at all. So I'm glad we did the trial, as it just cost the postage to send on to the next person.
