I was just browsing around TBW for the first time in maybe two years and it started baby carrier fever like always. I make almost all of mine, so thankfully that doesn't mean hundreds of dollars like it does for many others. I'm only 3 weeks from 3rd trimester (eeeeppp!) so there's not much time for crafting anyhow!
Here's what I've got planned:
Ring slings for the first couple of months at least. I have one, will probably make another. Mine is super cool for summer... not a great choice for Feb/March.
Mei tai starting at 6 weeks probably. I have one girlish one and DH has a boyish one. If we have a boy I might make myself another one since DH's is really suited to a man's build, but no rush.
Will make a soft structured carrier. I made one for DD2 but didn't use a pattern and it wasn't comfortable. Using a pattern this time! Hopefully to use from 6 weeks as well.
Will make a podaegi, probably for an older baby. Hopefully we'll be moving to a cooler climate when baby is 5 months or so, so a nice cozy blanket carrier will be perfect next fall!
I also have a couple DIY woven wraps, but I doubt they'll see much use. I hate all that fabric around me!
Is anyone else thinking of babywearing yet? Any thoughts/plans so far?
