Game- You Can't Do That while Babywearing!

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
Ladies, I thought we could play a little game here. I've called it "You Can't Do That while Babywearing!" The game is this: everyone tries to think of something that you really can't do while babywearing, such as drive a car. The things can be impossible either legally, or physically, or risk-wise (e.g. you can't repair your roof while babywearing). If you can think of something, that's one point. If you can prove that in fact, you can do that thing legally/physically/safely while babywearing (e.g. by using another kind of carrier, another carry, etc.) then you get TWO points. Get it?

The person with the most points gets a DDDDC. Like you need one, I know, but I thought there should be a prize.

So, I'm starting. You can't drive a car while babywearing.

Ok, I'll bite! (What's a DDDDC anyway?)

"You can't use the restroom while babywearing."

You can TOO! I do it all the time - safest, cleanest place for dd in a dirty public bathroom is in the pouch!

Heheh! This is fun! -Jude

How about:

You can't mow the lawn while babywearing. (dangerous and bad for little ears??)

You can't shower while babywearing. (wrong, I have a shower sling and ahve done it many times).

I guess the only thing I can readily think up is...go to bed for the night with a ur dc strapped to ur back...*wink*.

But pretty much everything else u can do.

Oh wait...another...U *shouldnt* stand on a chair, with your dc on your back to clean out the top shelves in your kitchen...thats just too risky!

So not true! My DH mowed the lawn today while wearing DD (and yes he is a keeper ). We have a reel mower, so no fumes or noise!

Hooray, thanks for participating!

I want to clarify one thing. You can't just make up things that you think someone might say and then rebut them. Rebuttals should be against something that someone on this thread actually said. So, if someone actually posted, "you can't go to the bathroom" then you would rebut. But if nobody posts it, then you can't just post and rebut yourself. Reason being, otherwise, we could all just post things like, "You can't eat an apple while babywearing- WRONG" or "You can't look in the mirror while babywearing- WRONG" and rack up the points.

However this rule shall not be applied retroactively.

So let's recap:

REbutted:
"You can't use the restroom while babywearing."
You can't shower while babywearing. (wrong, I have a shower sling and ahve done it many times).
You can't swim... Oh but you can, in a way!
You can't jog... oh sure.. just jostles the babe a bit.
You can't mow the lawn while babywearing. (use an emission-free, non-electric mower- good rebut!!!)

Not rebutted:
go to bed for the night with a ur dc strapped to ur back
U *shouldnt* stand on a chair, with your dc on your back to clean out the top shelves in your kitchen...thats just too risky!
You can't blow glass...
You can't ride a motorcycle...
You can't work on a car...
You can't cut down trees...
You can't tame a tiger...

Now I will rebut you can't work on a car. You can work on the engine when it's turned off, using a back carry, no?

*I* can go to bed with my dd strapped to my back - I sleep on my stomach! (I wouldn't, though. She kicks!)

You can't ride a horse while babywearing.

Good ladies, good... could you ride a well-trained horse, just walking, while babywearing? Or would that be too risky even with the best horse? (Asks the lady who has never ridden a horse in her life.)

Monie- could you really sleep that way? I think the poster meant you can't really get to sleep like that. If you can, two points for rebuttal.

To the poster who asked about DDDDCs, click the link at the very top of the page.

believe me, after chasing a two-year-old all over the house all day long, plus a new puppy who keeps chewing on things and having to go out, I think I could sleep standing up straight!

Ruthla stole mine

of course, if the baby was sleeping... :

you can't go snowboarding while babywearing. well, at least, i can't - i fall down way too much

you can't practice martial arts while babywearing, especially when sparring.

you can't do gymnastics while babywearing.

you can't (or maybe just shouldn't) jump on a trampoline while babywearing.

you shouldn't ride a bicycle while babywearing... though i must confess i did it once briefly because DS was having a *fit* in the trailer and we were still 2 miles away from the car

you can't use power tools while babywearing (noisy and dangerous)

you can't give birth while babywearing - and i will need pictures to debunk this one

LOL, although I was reading somewhere on here about literally being attached to baby while being done (for lack of better word) from behind. I have to say I wish I never heard that one. I guess it was nursing while....eh, you know.

Now see, I understand that you have to take your quality time with your DP when you can - but that's just too MUCH.

Though, I have to admit, I can see having sex while wearing a sleeping baby...... do a front carry and just reuse one of the pregnancy positions.... :

You can't get a haircut while wearing a baby (cuz all the clippings will fall on the baby!)
post #20 of 72
Sorry, I've gotten a haircut wearing my DS2. I wore the cape thingy loose with a little opening near his face (he was in the sling in front).

I was desperate - a few weeks after he was born MIL kept him for an hour while I got my hair cut short, and the stylist did a terrible job, like one side inches longer than the other (and I didn't ask for asymetrical). So I went back the next day to have another stylist fix it, but MIL had already left, I didn't want to wait and had no one else to keep DS, so there he slept in the sling under the cape with a little vent held open.

So it's possible, but I wouldn't recommend it
