One of the "confessions" I made earlier this week is my failure at babywearing. Actually, I wouldn't even consider it a failure with Agents E and J so much as an off the radar indifference.
It didn't even occur to me as a feasible option, to tell you the truth, even though by the time Eva turned a few weeks old I pretty much had gotten on board with the whole attachment parenting thing and had read extensively about babywearing. Yet it still seemed a bit too, dare I say it, crunchy for me then. So I passed.
While pregnant with Agent A, I reconsidered the idea, poring over information on using nurturing touch and the benefits of babywearing. After more debate and research, I purchased a Moby wrap. I wanted so much to love this sling. I really did. But I didn't.
I couldn't make it work, although I put in gallant effort. I could barely keep A in there, let alone breastfeed wearing it. Of the few times I did manage to put him in it, I think I only left my living room twice. I don't believe the wrap caused the difficulty. I am 100% convinced the cause is/was user error. Eventually I gave up, and now A is nearly 16 months old and there's no going back.

Anyway, after letting it take up some guilt-inducing space on a shelf in my living room for a long while, I washed it, dried it, and folded it back up into that impossibly small sack thingy it came in. And that's where it's been (now housed in my bedroom closet) ever since. It's time to let it go.
That's where you come in, dear reader. I am giving it away to someone who can make use of it. Allow me to obsessively reiterate: This is not a brand new wrap, but very gently used . . . one that I wore 5 or 6 times at most and is in excellent condition. And did I mention it is free?
Leave a comment on this post and I will choose a winner at random from all the comments received between now and Friday morning at 6:00 a.m. local time. (That would be midnight Thursday for my east coast friends.) If you know someone who may be interested, please share this with them.
Thanks for reading and have a blessed day.
