I have a question for you guys because I know a lot of you bw. For the summer I wanted to get for dh a ssc like an Ergo or Beco or Borba so we can use on our toddler when we go on hikes. What do you all suggest? I know I should ask the bw forum but I know you all bw here and I wanted to know your responses since I know a lot of you. He loves the mt I gave him and always uses that but he's a little intimidated by the moby that he gave to me (which I love) so I know one of these carriers will also be easier for him to continue to bw. TIA
DD absolutely LOVES the Boba. And it's the only one that DH wears her in now. Honestly, it's pretty much the only one I use now too. DH did wear DD in the SleepyWrap (similar to Moby) when she was a tiny baby because she was one of those ones that we couldn't ever put down and we couldn't wear her in a sling because she had reflux so she always wanted to be vertical. Anyway, whenever DH wore baby DD in the SleepyWrap, I put it on him first. I think he may be more inclined to learn to do it himself when we have another and there's a toddler to chase while holding a baby, YKWIM? Anyway, Boba is great for dads. I think any of those types of carriers would be great for a dad. Look for them used if you'd like to save a bit, but no matter what they're going to be a bit expensive (I saw an Ergo going for $80 used).
Hi there, I wanted to introduce myself as well. I have lurked on the forums in the past, but am not sure how I never noticed these local subforums. Anyway, I'm Debi and I have a 2 yr old son and we are a non-LDS family living in Orem.
The reason I was compelled to register and post is that I need to find some playmates for my son, and wouldn't mind finding some new friends for myself. I am especially interested in finding a playgroup in Utah County - I have looked around and haven't found anything. My LDS friends tell me there are a lot of playgroups scheduled through their wards, so maybe that's why. Anyway, if anyone has any leads or any kids who want a playdate, please let me know.
We don't live in Utah County, but we are also not LDS. The downtown LLL has a lot of non-LDS mamas. Specifically the Nursing and Beyond meeting. I love that meeting. That LLL also does a playgroup.
