|Who says baby sling can't have multiple purposes? (yes that's Mount St. Laundry in the back - it happens)|
For starters, Gideon can now turn over in his bed and gets stuck. As we didn't have as much two-dimentional as three-dimentional space to work with in the nursery (aka the bathroom), we opted for a hammock. It will last till he's ready for a real bed, is anti-SIDs, and the price was just right (used off of Gumtree for 50 pounds).

I also needed more mobility. Instead of getting a car, we opted for an electrical cargo bicycle that can seat up to four children and can help me to get up the steep hills to church.
Finally, we have found a new use for our newborn baby wrap - add it to the spring that comes with the hammock, a door clamp, and a few ribbons, and you have a baby bouncer that stores well and looks so much better than its store-bought siblings, no?
