I am the adoptive mom of one (teenager), and my first bio is on the way. I will end up going back to work about 6-8 weeks after the baby is born. It's not a normal job - my children can go to work with me. The first thing I will do is teach 2 weeks of band camp at the local high school. I'll be wearing the baby and my teenager will help out. Also, I'll be breastfeeding, so a sling that allows me to be covered while feeding is a definite bonus. I'm a plus size gal with extremely large breasts (38L before pregnancy), so I know that has to be factored into what sling I get and how the baby is positioned.
I'm really needing ideas and how-to for a baby that young. I've read about older babies, but not newborns. Any thoughts?
