For the first several weeks of her life, Brinley was a bit of a crier. (Glad to report that, now two months old, she is getting so much better!) In order to get anything done, I would carry her facing out on my hip with my arm around her waist. I pretty much lugged her around like this most of the day. Never fail, she would end up falling asleep. She loved to sleep hanging over our arms like this. Someone should invent some sort of contraption that you can hang your baby on...for the sake of my arms!
