"A few weeks after having a baby, we needed to go grocery shopping. Like we really needed actual food, not just a quick stop for milk and bread! The way it worked out, I knew I only had an hour window to shop before a doctor appointment, with kids in tow. I had a list and a plan, and we could do it!
You can guess that I was not the serene-mother of three calming walking the aisles. I needed to pay close attention to labels (darn dairy-free diet) and my other kids were not being helpful at all. Of course, the baby started screaming in his carseat and was not going to calm down on his own. We pulled over to the toothpaste aisle, which for future reference, is always deserted. I grabbed the carrier from my bulging diaper bag, and popped my red-faced child into it close to me. And just like that, he went to sleep.
It was clear my young baby needed his mama in the store that day, and I was so thankful for the carrier giving me the chance to comfort my baby without having to cut my trip short. I knew my baby was safe and happy because he was right there next to me, which enabled me to focus on my task and be patient with my older children."
