I would love to win one of these! I think having masculine/neutral prints and colors are great, as well as the simplicity of using the carrier. My husband used the Moby wrap rarely when our guy was little, since I think all the wrapping intimidated him. Also, skin to skin time with Daddy is a great way to bond!

Enter to WIN One of Three Beco Baby Carriers! - Page 41
I would love to win this print!!!! Was about to order for my DH :) My advice is to always have it available. Especially in the car :) Dad's get tired of holding kids too but often forget to pack the carrier :)
I'd love to try a Beco! My husband starting wearing my kids when I took photos of him with the baby in the carrier, and saved them in a side table drawer, calling them my "Mommy Porn." He loved it. It isn't *really* pornography, OBVIOUSLY, and that word is pretty inflammatory, but boy, he sure did start wearing the baby!!!
Babywearing for mom, dad, siblings, auntie and uncles is a wonderful opportunity to bond with the child. Arms free is an awesoem plus!!
I'd love to win a Beco for my sister. My husband and I both wore our son and we loved it!
nothing like being able to hold your baby everywhere hands free. It's a great bonding experience for baby and parent. Every time I see a father using a carrier I squeal. Even seeing my husband doing it and loving it warms my heart.
I had a Baby Hawk, but it got stolen:(
Would love to have this carrier!
To get more men to baby wear, I suggest more women doing so and maybe making carriers more affordable might entice more mother to wear their babies. My husband would probably consider it if we were at the zoo or the park and it was not a girly print..
I have a 23lb 10month old and would love to win a carrier that his dad would wear! I am the sole baby wearer in the house and would love to hare the love!! I think more manly prints would help... camo maybe?
I would absolutely LOVE one of these carriers! I am so jealous of my friend who has one!
I think that offering more gender-neutral designs and showing more baby-wearing dads on packaging and magazine covers could help as well.
My husband and I both wear our four-month-old boy in a black Moby wrap and we would love to try out another baby carrier! He is a former college athlete, and when I asked him what would make baby carriers more appealing to men, he said, "Professional and college sports team logos or their colleges. You may be looking for some sort of design gimmick, but the only thing the majority of men want to promote are their favorite sports teams or their university. Any designs other than that will be too cute and I wouldn't wear them."
I would love one of these carriers first off! Second, getting more men to wear their babies. As the wife of a baby wearing husband I know that my husband and the husbands of my friends prefer a carrier that is plain in color and is comfortable to wear. My husband loved the Moby but complained in the summer that it was too hot. Currently we use the Ergo and he prefers that over the Moby. I think the key to getting men to baby wear is for their wives/girlfriends/boyfriends/friends to encourage it. Encourage women, thus encourage men.
I know my husband was a supporter of babywearing once we went to a class that provided a lot of information on the benefits. Providing the facts on how important wearing your baby is, as well as some manly options for carriers would help. Plus, the more men see other men wearing their babies the more "normal" they'll think it is.
I would love to have this carrier!
To get more men to baby wear, I suggest more neutral colors. Maybe even a few with sports team logos and prints. More advertising showing men carrying the baby at guy oriented events. Sports, playing pool, hanging with other dads wearing their babies too.
