So I got over the intimidation factor with the instructional DVD, and watched a little video online that explained how to use my Ergo baby carrier. We took him to the in-laws' apartment on a trial run...my in-laws are actually out of town and my mother and sister are staying there.
Well, all the claims about babies loving these carriers (because they remember the rhythm of your walk from the womb) are true! E slept like a baby the whole way. In fact, maybe I should take him out for a walk in the carrier whenever he's fussing.
