It's certainly the best way to bond with your baby.

And former Friends star David Schwimmer, 44, looked smitten with baby daughter Cleo as he toted her around in a baby sling.

Cleo looked rather comfortable as the actor turned director ran errands with the three-month old in tow, while wife Zoe Buckman, 25, was occupied elsewhere.

Hopefully the new mother was getting a few hours of well-deserved me-time.

Baby Cleo has the same dark hair as her parents and grey-green eyes. And even at just three months appears to be heading for her father's territory in the height department. as she appeared quite lengthy.

Her father affectionately clutched her toes, as she wore just a babygro and no bootees.

Schwimmer and Zoe have rarely been seen since Cleo was delivered by caesarean section in New York on May 8.

But they did release a picture which showed them gazing in heartfelt joy at their then two-week old daughter.

David wed former waitress Zoe in a secret ceremony in June after announcing their engagement in March last year.

The couple met in London in 2007 when Schwimmer was directing Run, Fat Boy, Run, starring Simon Pegg and Thandie Newton.

His most recent project was the critically acclaimed film Trust starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener. One reviewer called it 'hands down one of the year's best films.'
