But we coped.
One of the other things I soon realised was that I didn't need a new super dooper pram/stroller, or even a sling to carry my baby around. Just a piece of cloth, or like in the photo below, a sweatshirt! I started to tie my babies to my back to carry them around. Both my children are adopted and I am a firm believer in baby carrying/wearing. I really took this on board with Jesse as he had a few security issues when we bought him home. So on my back he went. If I was cleaning, shopping or taking a walk he was on my back. Even last week I had him tied on.
A few weeks ago some one donated these adorable African dolls to us. Joe and Jesse claimed one each and when Maggie and Primrose were here last week I gave them one each also. They all spent the week with their babies tied to their backs........So cute!
