And I know my boys love that I can still take care of them, play with them, walk with them, while keeping their sister snuggly warm, safe, happy, and content right next to me.
I still use that sling with Grace. She sits in the sling, resting her head on my chest when she gets tired. She looks around at the world. I see what she sees. She can feel my heartbeat. She knows she is safe with her mama. And all is right in the world.
I don't know what I would do without that sling. And now the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) is going after all slings, pouches, mei tais, and the like. It makes me so sad. And as much as I feel for the parents who experienced such tragedy I know that slings are safe, healthy, wonderful additions to parenting if used correctly.
