I'm not crazy about the pouch sling, but its what I have, and probably all I will have for at least a year. (DH uses the maclaren ssc when we're walking in the park/mall, but its too bulky and impractical for every day)

DS loves to sleep in it, but my milk is a total distraction.. He'll start rubbing his face all over my chest, shirt or not. I offer to nurse and he'll refuse 60% of the time.. Its just rooting and sucking on his hands and dragging spit all over me.

I know he's only 2 months- and the drool will only increase in the next months but my skin is being digested by the enzymes and is itching and burning and red..

I know I'm not the only one- what have you done to limit the burn and keep baby in the carrier?

I did not have that particular problem, but can you maybe use some sort of ointment on your skin to heal it and provide a barrier? Or maybe a burp cloth between his face and your shirt. When DD was drooling we called them slobber towels. By the way, he is so cute.

I have had the issue with lower-cut shirts and *need* to have extra fabric between ds & I (though his drooling is less now that he is actually teething...)

Yikes. My problem is more with the scratches my DD leaves behind as she tries to pull the skin off my neck. OUCH Not sure what I would do for the enzymes though. Could you layer with a receiving blanket between you and your baby?
