Front wrap cross carry in my homemade woven wrap. It's the only carry I know so far, but it's a goodie. I need to figure out my ring sling next....it definitely doesn't feel as secure as the wrap, but I'm sure it's still handy.....
How are you carrying? - Page 2
I wish I had more time to join the talk, but with three little ones, I can hardly find time to bath...
I´m currently using a ring sling, I love it, I have a wrap but the weather doesn´t allow for it right now, so the sling is my favorite as of now. It´s funny the looks I get when I go out. Where I am there is little to no use of any carrier, so people look at me funny. I went to the grocery store the other day, we were about 100, and when I was walking to my car one lady told me ¨Your baby is going to get dehydrated in there¨.. as if I was walking to my house.
I find the carriers very helpful and the babe likes it, so I´m happy with it.
Our tried and true method for showering/bathing/toileting hands-free.
All my kiddos have had sink-time, they are always within eye-view and very safe.
I usually shower with them first then once they're clean it's sink-time and I jump back in to finish my shower!
Most of the time Trilly's asleep but this morning she was just a cooing away while I showered.
Of course it wont last much longer as she's up to 12.6lbs now at 7 weeks.... She will outgrow the vanity sink very soon but it's nice for the first few months anyway!
Bumpkins - you have the BEST ideas! I'm totally going to try wrapping baby on me vs. putting the wrap on first!
I use a Moby at home, the K'Tan while out and about for quick trips - it's just really fast and easy, but not nearly as secure as what I can do with the Moby. I also have a Boba (DH and I have used it just a few times - I don't love the bulk and buckles) - I can actually nurse in it easily because of the buckles and straps, though. I can nurse in the K'Tan relatively easily also. It's probably my favorite for simplicity and ease...the Moby for security and endurance.
Oh - I also have a Kangaroo Korner fleece pouch. I used it all the time with my November baby, back in the day before those pouches were frowned upon. I liked it for toddler hip carry when in and out of stores also (to avoid parking lot hassles!)
I'm so happy if some of my crazy experience is helpful to any of you!
Wrapping the babe while on my person has a much better outcome for correct fitting.
I always wanted one of those kangaroo pouch carriers, they look so comfy for them... Most of the time you'll find me tucking the babe under my shirt and then my shirt into my sweats cinched tight. (In a pinch without a wrap and need hands free....)
Hi there Holly and Big Brother!! You look ready for a nice walk!! Hope the healing is going smooth for you Spotty.
