The list author says: "These are things we found helpful during Daniel's first 7 mos.--with a few updates courtesy of our experience with Henri. Baby books are not on this list--but the babies loved them early on (and so did we!)."
"Great for when you need a break from holding baby and for walks before baby weighs a lot.
When D would get fussy during his first few weeks at home and we didn't know what to do for him we'd put him in the carrier and just walk around the house and yard. It helped all parties involved! ;-)"
"This was very helpful with Henri! The angle helps keep fussier babes comfortable (Henri had colic). It's also super portable and easy to take everywhere! I checked with our ped because I was concerned about neck issues, but he said no worries."
