A Year Of Babywearing

I have been wearing Gretchen in a number of different carriers/slings since she was a day old & we both still love it. Without babywearing, I'd feel naked.

CuddlyWrap, Heart2Heart.

CuddlyWrap, Ergo.

Ergo, SugarBugSlings.

You look so cute wearing G in all those different ways.

I love wearing Lily. I just got an Ergo and think its the best. I have a Moby and it's ok. My Mei Tai is great too. I really want to try a ring sling.

Aw, love all those baby wearing pics! I cannot wait to have my 3rd babe this spring to get into it again!
We loved our Ergo too, sadly I gave it away thinking my babywearing days were over...but trying the Boba with the new baby when he/she is big enough.

Oh, glad you posted this. I just got an Ergo and I made a Mei Tei carrier. How do you like the cuddly wrap? Was it better for Gretchen when she was a certain age/size over the Ergo?

Jinxy -- the ring sling is so versatile & super easy for nursing. I like to use it when I know she'll be in and out a bunch, or for when I need to toss one in my bag just in case :)

Mary Beth -- awe, thank you! and congrats on baby no. 3 ^_^ I haven't heard of the Boba before.. hmmm.

Elaine -- I the cuddlywrap was definitely my favourite until she was about six or seven months old, I think. It's better for when they are a little bit smaller, I found.

I have done a tad bit of babywearing myself. Years and years ago I babysat an infant, who was difficult to settle.

I put her in something like the Ergo with her facing me against my chest and went about my evening... looking after the other kids.

It was the only way to calm her and get her to sleep.

Believe it or not I was the only person who could get this child to settle (other than her Mother of course) until she was about 6 months old or so.

I attribute it strictly to babywearing!

I was even asked to babysit when Mommy wanted to go out and Daddy was home. He refused to take part in the babywearing and thought I had some mystical power over his infant daughter. ;-)

I fully intend to "wear" my children... someday.

I love the collages, simply beautiful!

As always... Thanks for sharing,

Awe, that's so great Shannon. Babywearing is a lifesaver!
