To be honest i wasn’t too sure what baby wearing was ; then i realised it’s just a name given to carrying your baby in a sling or wrap. I guess since i had my first daughter 7 years ago things have changed – don’t think i heard much about baby wearing then but now it seems really popular – and so it should be ; wraps and carriers can be such practical things and in certain circumstances wearing a baby in a wrap / carrier can give you back a smidge of your independence.
When i had my daughter Erin 2 years ago i used a mai Tai wrap and it was really comfy for me but i alway thought she looked a bit uncomfortable as i wasn’t sure what to do with her legs ie she was too small to have the spread out each side of the Mai Tai and if her legs where inside i thought they looked a bit crumpled. What i should have done was go into You Tube and watch a video on how to wear one!
You tube can be so cool for learning new things , i use it a lot for learning new hairstyle etc!
There are SO many other types of carrier or wraps for you and your baby to use; i’ve heard Moby wraps are really cool, especially in the year months , again You tube is really cool for learning how to wrap them so both you and your baby are comfortable and safely held.
Boba wraps again i’ve heard lots of nice things about , they seem to be very practical , ladies that i follow on twitter have found Boba wraps easy to breastfeed in on the go and have done their grocery shopping etc whilst wearing a Boba wrap and breastfed.
There are so many carriers to choose from, which one did you find the best? It’s nice that the practicality of them is being combined with a great looking product, i found an old baby carrier at a car boot sale and think it must have gone back to the 70’s and i couldn’t even figure out how to put it on and who knew where the baby went!
Stokke have just realised a new baby carrier – mycarrier i think it’s called, i’ve never used one and i wondered what it was like ; i know Stokke have a great reputation for making great prams , high chairs etc so thought this probably was cool .
Anyone with any feedback on baby carriers please feel free to comment as it’s great to get recommendations . Plus which ones are best for breastfeeding in?
