Are you wearing anything over her besides your outter shirt, like a tank top or sports bra to keep her secured? dunno

Other than obviously wearing a bra to hold her she may feel more secure with another layer close to her.

Depending on what you're already wearing.

roflmao I get the funny looks here too.

She should be fine in there and they also get use to the movement as well including noises from the TV.

Mine are use to me hollering to my sons and it doesn't faze them a bit lol

You may feel her move around but it's normal for them to reposition to block out the sounds too grin

clap As long as she is cozy and sleeping your on the right path with her. It will take a little bit of time however for her to become accustomed to all the different sounds and moves that you make. It took my two about a month or so to get used to it. Now they both sleep thru just about anything! Once in awhile offer her a little treat, she will eventually get used to you giving her a treat and will start peeking up looking for one. I would make sure NOT to take her out of the house while in your bra until she is 100% used to it. The slightest noise will scare her and she might jump out. Your doing a wonderful job!

it took me several tries to get her into my bra, but once she was tired enough she just sort of curled up and stopped fighting me about it and went to sleep. my little girl didn't want to come out either, but she can never resist a mealie so i poured 2-3 out onto the counter and let her go to them once out of her pouch i removed it from her sight and then placed her into my bra, she too wanted nothing to do with it and would just jump right out, but like i said she got tired and eventually just decided to give up and go to sleep.

When I first started with mine, I just stuck them in there. When they tried to come out I just gave them a mealie (yup righ in the bra) while they were eating the mealies I would gently pet them and rub their backs. After about 4 mealies apiece they settled down. Since then, they just go right in. It's cute though all I do is just bend down pull open my top and pop right in they both go, swiggle around to get comfy and off the sleep they go! It's funny though because Choco he's a chunk....and Sam is on the slimmer side...I sure do look lopsided! My front looks like a rollercoaster track roflmao

Do they poop in there?

Anyone wearing something between the body and the sports bra?

I have to admit I'm a little squirmy about putting mealies in there!?

I've thought about a bra pouch, but can't find a photo that would show how to attach it to a strap... does it fall under your arm or do you position it somewhere inside the bra?

bonding pouches are not really an attractive fashion accessory, so a little lop-sided in the bra would be a better look than the silly looking bonding pouch!

MileHighMommy - I think what some people do is wear a bra (regular or sports) then wear one of those camis or tank tops with the shelf bra in it. They place the glider in between their bra and the cami/tank top. I've not had a problems with them pooping in there. As far as the bra pouch, I think they have little clips on them (kind of like what you'd see on a name badge only smaller) and you just clip it to the actual bra. Now I don't know that for sure, but that's just kind of the impression I got. I just "wear" my two in a sports bra right next to my skin. I like that I can feel them to make sure they're warm, and sometimes I even get a good grooming out of it! Oh, and I've never put mealies in my bra!! That Linda is a silly girl grin

The way my two got started was in the playroom. They'd be climbing up my pant legs and when they got to the bottom of my shirt they'd kind of stick their noses in. So I started pulling my shirt out and they would just climb right up (it's good to keep their nails trimmed for that part!). I hadn't even thought about bra training but they seemed to like to spend a lot of time running in and out of my shirt. So I started wearing a sports bra when it was playtime and they'd explore it a little. Then I think one of them went in finally and fell asleep and the other one eventually followed. If I remember correctly, I think I may have stuck them in there a time or two, but it didn't take much - and now that's the first place they head when I wake them up.

Oh, TracieB, you are the best! Thanks for the ideas! I'm going to give this time and not force it. I think eventually I will be more than just the escape hatch from the cage ...and a good elevator to the top of the drapes ...and a reliable mealie dispenser.

Heck, at least my list of "what I'm good for" (to the fuzzy babies) is getting longer all the time. smile
