Obviously I have to buy a ring sling for DH. But I also found a wrap-style carrier that is meant to be used in the water. "Pool or shower," it says. So I contacted the seller, and she says it's great for bathing the baby in the shower! Which is awesome, because I HATE baby bathtubs so much that DH always has to get on me about bathing the baby, and I always feel like I'm going to drop them in the shower. This sounds like a perfect solution, plus it will be great for the pool next summer! But looking at the wrap, it looks so cozy, like a perfect cross between the ring sling and the mei tai, so now I want a regular one for carrying the baby around! I guess I'll wait and see how much I like the shower one, and if it's as great as I think, buy a regular one. AND, I found a great suggestion to wear a wrap/poncho instead of a coat when babywearing, which I never thought of before (since my last baby was born in July). So now I want one of those!
i'm really excited about babywearing this time around. With past babies, I always loved when I did wear them, but I didn't do it as much as I wanted. I just never thought about it, or I'd be out and not have the sling with me. (And, honestly, I didn't find it very convenient around the house.) This time I'm planning to get a convertible car seat instead of the infant seat, because I HATED carrying those things around, and use the sling every time I leave the house.
