Babywearing Outdoors


...

I'm sure it's possible to raise children without slings and wraps.  I just don't know how it's done.

By the way, Sophia is bundled up in a Moby wrap...snug as a bug in a rug. Out of the wrap style carriers that I own, this is my favorite for itty bitty babies.  It's got just the right amount of stretch.  If you can only buy one carrier, though, a stretchy wrap should not be it.  The stretch gets uncomfortable once the baby gets to be around 20 pounds.  And, no, I'm not getting paid to tell you my opinion...unfortunately.

  5. The introduction to your post was pure poetry. I agree wholeheartedly! I don't know what I'd do without my baby carriers...especially in the first year.

  6. Madeline, that was Anna Cate I had in my 'purse', actually an infantino sling, and yes that was funny. I remember him looking at me quite weird like.... I didn't have the right 'equipment' to wear Anna Cate like I did Kimber Lee. I wonder if that would have helped her colic...hmmmmmm...oh well, we lived through it.

    I can't wait to see you guys again!
