: get _very_ good baby-carrier
slings. i use the "sleepy-wrap", get the high-quality
material; marie uses the "hippy chick rider", it's a side-
sling. the one she uses outside is just a seat: the "scoota
baby hip carrier". these two can't be used with a new-born:
only the "sleepy-wrap" can. you can literally swaddle baby
in it (you have to wrap it pretty tight).
also, carry on breast-feeding; get clothes where you have
easy-access (even when baby is in the sling), and get a car-
you then have the best of all worlds. you get to keep to
your principles, and you get to make use of your friends andn
family who own cars.
