Each week I’ll be introducing you to a babywearing mama (or papa!) during A Little Bit of All of It’s Babywearing Series. Find out more about this mama at the end of the post. (You can be included in a future post by filling out the Babywearing Profile form.)
When did you start wearing your baby/young child? When our newborn was 2 weeks old, I carried him in a Moby Wrap.
What is your favorite carrier? I have only used a Moby Wrap and a BabyHawk mei tai. Both are favorites of mine for different reasons. I love the Moby for our 3 month old and just adore the mei tai for our 16 month old.
What is your favorite carry? I love the kangaroo hold with the Moby and our youngest, and front carry with our oldest in the BabyHawk.
How did you first learn about Babywearing and what were your initial impressions of it? My cousin’s wife wore her baby first from the beginning, and I thought it was going to be super hard on your back. Once I did it I fell in love.
How many carriers do you own and what are they? 2, a BabyHawk mei tai and a Moby wrap
Do you have a favorite babywearing story/scenario? We took our littles to the science center, and I had our 3 week old in my Moby and our oldest was in the stroller and multiple times I was stopped to be asked where I got the wrap from, if I really liked it, and how cool it was because he looked so comfy!
What is the strangest or funniest thing you’ve done while wearing your baby? I haven’t really done anything strange or funny; I do everything while babywearing which I guess some people could see as strange.
What is your favorite thing about wearing your baby? I love being close to the boys, and the fact that I can get housework done while babywearing.
