i have a 2 month old, also have a 6 year old...i cant physically hold my son. when my 6 year old was little, we used these woven wrap things my wife would wrap it around me and the beby would get all snuggly in there but now that ihave a trach/vent i amnot sure how to have any closeness with the baby,mkes me sad. i think the baby grabbing the tubing is a possible issue, they can be grabby.

when my older son was little he always loved riding on my lap, had to limit the amount of time he did it because they wereconcerned about too much pressure. i sometimes just lie down withthe new baby and we just have staring contests
