Dads get less time with the kiddos, so when they do it's nice for them to be active and wear baby for closeness, my hubby loved wearing our girls and would love your carrier for # 3 when we do get prego again;) And he's really hoping for a boy this time! I think Dad's feel more stylish wearing these than pushing a stroller!

Enter to WIN One of Three Beco Baby Carriers! - Page 2post #22 of 8293/30/11 at 4:18pmpost #23 of 8293/30/11 at 4:19pmpost #24 of 8293/30/11 at 4:19pm
Real men wear babies!! My husband wore our daughter as much as I did and we both really enjoy baby wearing. It's one of the most natural things and people always marveled at how our baby had such a good disposition and didn't cry much. We attribute that to baby wearing and nursing on demand. :) Your carriers are beautiful and we would love to have one!!post #25 of 8293/30/11 at 4:20pmpost #26 of 8293/30/11 at 4:20pm
I would love to win one of these because my husband is just getting into attachment parenting and wants to take an active roll but all the carriers he's seen are very girly! Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway!post #27 of 8293/30/11 at 4:20pm
I'd love to win this!
I agree with "manly" patterns... maybe even some masculine features like a D-ring clip for keys or a velcro area for patches?
Also, just emphasizing the men more in advertising might be beneficial.post #28 of 8293/30/11 at 4:21pm
I would love one of these ~!!!!!
with my husband I didn't push it, he just saw the great bond my children and I formed from babywearing. He was in awe of how it soothed them and calmed them. He offers on a regular basis now :)post #29 of 8293/30/11 at 4:21pm
I always had a soft structured carrier around for my husband to use, but he never seemed to wear it. Finally, once our kiddo got heavy enough, his arms were tired and he gave in. I started finding the Ergo with all the straps on the largest settings, so I knew it was getting some use when I wasn't around. We're going to try for #2 this year, and would love to try a Beco.post #30 of 8293/30/11 at 4:21pm
I would love one of these carriers! My husband quickly became a convert to baby carriers when he realized how easy it was to get our little girl to sleep in one. That, and it was so much easier to protect her from anyone and anything when he held her close. ;-) Gotta love protective daddies!post #31 of 8293/30/11 at 4:21pm
I would love to win one of these as my husband loves to carry our son.
The advertisments need to show the man carrying the baby and his partner/wife looking at him in an adoring way vs having her always look only at the baby.
Next best thing is to show a man carrying a baby and have a women and her friends stare at him as they pass. I find nothing sexier than a man who is willing to carry is baby, and I am sure many women would agree with this.post #32 of 8293/30/11 at 4:22pmI would love to have a Beco.
The thing that made my dh babywear was having his own in a very Laredo size - a custom sized sling in the early months, and then a used hard structure carrier we found that was actually big enough for him. He is quite big so most carriers are too small to use at all, or too small to work well with his body even if the straps expand enough.post #33 of 8293/30/11 at 4:23pmpost #34 of 8293/30/11 at 4:23pmI would love this carrier. I think that more men modeling, and more gender neutral/plain carriers would definitely help. I know my husband doesn't often wear because he is a little oddly shaped for SSC's (long torso, bigger stomach), so longer straps are required, but often hard to come by in SSC's.post #35 of 8293/30/11 at 4:23pmpost #36 of 8293/30/11 at 4:23pm
I would LOVE to win. I really enjoy baby wearing and still wear my 15 month old. :)
As far as getting men to wear them...it'd probably just take "manly" themed carriers and possibly (depending on the guy) more knowledge of the benefits of baby wearing. :)post #37 of 8293/30/11 at 4:24pm
OH my goodness, how I would love one of these carriers!! They are simply amazing!!
As for getting men to babywear, it's easy with my husband...usually when we go camping or hiking, he wants to be the one carrying the baby in the carrier :)post #38 of 8293/30/11 at 4:25pmpost #39 of 8293/30/11 at 4:25pm
I would absolutely love one! I've always had an Ergo, but my daughter is complaining of it hurting her legs. The Becco is the one I wanted to try out! As far as getting men to babywear, advertising is a huge key. Have more daddies in the ads. Moms know they want one already. Also, have some "manly" prints...camo, American flag, etc. That might make it more appealing to them.post #40 of 8293/30/11 at 4:25pm
I want one! I want one!
My hubby wears our son all the time. I think "manly" colors are important as well as always keeping men in the advertising. The more they see it, the more it's normal! Also, my hubby seems to get lots of attention from the ladies when he's carrying our son. I'm usually not present... but my boys sure are chick magnets. Not that this should be a reason for men babywearing...
