31 Days: Baby Wearing

When Big D was born I didn’t need to worry about baby carriers. I knew he was going to be held and loved all day long. I also knew that when I couldn’t hold him J’s arms would hold him just as tight. I loved rocking him and spent hours standing up in the living room staring at him. Fast forward three years later and I knew holding Little D would be an issue with a toddler around. I started practicing baby wearing and decided that was the way to go.

My first carrier was a Moby wrap, which currently holds Baby G as I type this. I love the different positions of the wrap and even though I wore it rarely with Big D, Little D and Baby G have lived in it.This wrap has been passed down from Big D and wears really well even after a million washes. J often walks in the house to the scene of Baby G in the Moby and this mom cooking dinner. The Moby keeps Baby G close during all of our daily chores.

We invested in a Baby Bjorn when Little D was born because J didn’t like the Moby. I have to say for babies over the age of 3 months I like it. I carried Little D in it when I would run errands with the boys and it was an easy carrier to put on. We haven’t tried it with Baby G yet because she is still smaller than the boys were at her age. Plus, I like that the Moby covers her face when we are playing outside. Not to worry though, I know J will soon be using this when he has to go out with all three kiddos.

This year one of my best friends bought us an Ergobaby carrier and I haven’t had the chance to use it. She wears it every where with her 6 month old and it looks comfy. The straps are thick and it is supposed to distribute the baby’s weight all over. The carrier also comes in beautiful colors and designs. I am excited to see if Baby G likes it when she gets older. I also like that the baby can be worn on your back with it.

With each new addition having a carrier has become a necessity. I have to be able to use both hands and I enjoy knowing my baby is close by. Feel free to let me know if you use a different carrier. I would love to try anything that works, especially because the boys are always on the go.
