he's probably just excited to see a new face! don't worry... i'm sure he doesn't love your bf more than he loves you. in the end, he'll bond to whoever takes care of him most, you!

shylo never sleeps in my bra. she likes hoodies that are tight at the bottom so she can curl up against my lower tummy. sometimes she'll sleep in my sleeves. i don't know what i'm going to do in the summer though!

bonding pouches aren't a big hit with many flyers. try just letting him sleep in a tucked in tee shirt or sweat shirt.
