I voted no, although my dh has worn our children very occasionally.  He's just not really into it.  He will carry them, give them piggy back rides, and let them ride on his shoulders sometimes when we're out and they are tired of walking.

He was actually the first one to wear her! Got a pic in her baby book :)

My ex does not and never did, but my dad DOES!  He is so cute.  I loves the opportunity to get close to his grandchild.  My mom does as well and volunteers when her feet and back do not hurt.  But in all fairness, they are doing well at adjusting to our "alternative" lifestyle (I was raising in a traditional Southern household) since we moved in.  I am impressed!

My DH has BW our children since DD (she's now 5) was tiny. It has helped him parent and bond. There have been so many times when it made the day pass so much more positively, such as when I had to work or go to a meeting or something. DH would pop our baby on him and she or he (whichever child he had on at the time) would fall asleep happily. Sometimes, if we're out on a hike or something, we both end up wearing one and everyone's happy! :) I'm truly thankful that I have a DH who happily wears our littles.

This one is from yesterday with DS on his back. We were all out on a lovely hike. The weather was divine!

We were talking about the stroller we want to buy yesterday (it's a pretty big jogger and he thinks it's too big), and DH said he was ok with it, as long as I promised to get at least one non-girly carrier, and teach him how to use it and tie it and everything (said all in a really cute, embarassed voice). Aww, even when they're just talking about baby wearing, it's still attractive. lol.

Yep, not really at first as a newborn, because I think he was just nervous of hurting her somehow, but now he offers to wear her anytime we go anywhere. We have a size 6 wrap, it's actually unnecessarily long and I'm thinking of shortening it down a size.

Yes. Dh has worn each of our babies. He wears them more than I do once they reach a certain weight because I have chronic back pain.

Thank you! It was a beautiful day! :D

What carrier is that? Definitely manly and looks to be good for a toddler.

Both my DP and I love baby- and toddler-wearing!

DH is awkward with the Moby, but does fine with soft structured carriers like the Bjorn.  He feels more confident using something that he can adjust with plastic buckles and can tell right away that everything is in the right place.  We've been using our metal frame backpack a lot more now that DS is tall enough to kick Daddy in a sensitive place when he gets giggly if he's being worn on the front.  I switched to the backpack as soon as the new baby bump appeared.  DH doesn't like the backpack as much because he can't interact with him as easily, so he carries him loose more now.  I like the look of some of those soft/wrap/tie style back carriers.  Are they easy to put on by yourself or do you need a hand?

post #53 of 67

Mine did, it was over 12 years ago now for our first, but we both did.

It was important for us to each have our carriers, I am 5 ft. 4 and he is 6 ft 6in, so we needed different supplies or the kiddos hurt his back.

It was awesome, nothing is sexier than a man babywearing.

My DH carries DS more than I do.  DS squirms and roots when I wear him and he's prefectly happy when DH wears him.  I'm hoping to learn some other carries that don't have my boobs right in his face.  He uses the Ergo, I think he's intimidated by the wraps and slings.

 

I love all the pics!

 

Here's my man...

And here's how he reacts with me...  I guess it's only fair, I carried for the first 9 months :)

My husband was DEAD SET against baby wearing... but after moans, and tears and frustrating cries of, "I can't get anything done!" I convinced him to try a wrap.  He did it and liked it, but wasn't sold.  He was too frustrated trying to get it on, and he wouldn't step outdoors without it. 

 

We picked up a used soft structured carrier for $10 to try it out and he was sold.  Now he cleans the whole house and walks the dogs all while wearing, he loves it.  I have a sling as a while-we're-out backup, but he won't try that one.  That's ok, he can keep the carrier. ;)

 

Also love the pics.  The previous posters are right, it really is sexy.

my babies have their own babies now---their dad never wore anything like the ones on here (I really don't remembering them being around)My daughter's ex would take care of their daughter with certain people were around other than that he would only do things to quieten the her was if  he was watching tv

My son carries whatever,feeds the baby(9 months) & her brother (his girlfriend has a now 4 year old from her 1st marriage),change diapers ,makes dinner when he's off and she's working -I could go on but you probably might think that I favor my son) His daddy helped more with his sister more than when he was born

I think a lot of these men coming up are taking more interest in their children.All dads care for their children ,don't get me wrong,but they have the few that goes back I guess , they felt they had a job ----sorry rambling on

post #58 of 67

Oh, look what I found! The baby in there? Is me. Wedged in with towels so I wouldn't fall out the leg holes at 2 months old. That's my dad.

Dad wearing me

 

And here's my husband, with our daughter, Shiny.
