You can't get shot out of a cannon at the circus while babywearing.

I think we'd better stop on this sex one... I won't go into it BUT we are getting into dangerous territory here. For this thread, we will NOT count that as a rebut and you CANNOT have sex while babywearing. I know that millions of people have sex with a newborn sleeping in the same room but let's just say that's quite different.

"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"

But people can ride bikes with their kids on them. What if the child has a helmet? Is it really safer to have the baby in a separate seat?

"You can't blow glass... you probably could if the baby was asleep in a back carry"

That's an open-flame art. I don't think we are going to count this. It would be dangerous even with the baby on your back. Occasionally, your back is to the flames. I'm not an expert but I did watch the Dale Chihuly special on PBS and I can say that you definitely would not want a baby in that ROOM, much less on you.

"you can't practice martial arts while babywearing, especially when sparring..what about Tai Chi?? *eyebrow waggle*"

I think this should count. Any Tai Chi practitioners out there?

"you can't do gymnastics while babywearing....hmm is that ribbon twirly thing still part of gymnastics??"

I think there's still a lot of jumping around, though physically it might be possible. I don't think it would be possible to do it WELL.

I know quite a few people who have worn their babies while riding a horse. I would consider it if I were a stronger rider.

Oh. And I mowed the grass tonight while wearing my DD on my back.

Okay, that's two points for the babywearing horse-riders. However the grass-mowing has already been rebutted, so while that is a great picture you don't get the points.

I wish I could have a lawnmower like that.

I'm just jumping in here- hope nobody minds.

You can't play Dance Dance Revolution (lol, sorry-my inner dorkness has come out )

You can't play Twister.
You can't ride a roller coaster.
You can't walk a tightrope.

Welcome to MDC, D, and to the babywearing forums, and to this silly game, where everyone is welcome. ESPECIALLY people with inner dorkness. Because you can sing karaoke while babywearing, after all.

Though, why not Dance Dance Revolution? If you can jog... I guess it depends on the age of the baby and the physical fitness of the wearer.

bicycle riding - let's say for sure you can't mountain bike while babywearing, since you can't have a child in a seat or a trailer during that activity either. definitely unsafe.

that's rhythmic gymnastics, and it's a separate sport in the olympics

speaking of the olympics, and sports in general...

you can't platform dive while babywearing
you can't figure skate while babywearing (though i imagine it'd be OK to just scoot around on ice skates... but i'm talking jumpy, leapy, twirly figure skating)
you can't speed skate while babywearing (that'd totally throw off your center of gravity!)
you can't water ski while babywearing
you can't wrestle while babywearing (especially WWF style )
you can't practice archery while babywearing
you can't participate in a decathlon while babywearing
you can't play tennis while babywearing
you can't play baseball while babywearing
you can't play football while babywearing
you can't play ice hockey (or field hockey) while babywearing
you can't ride a bobsled while babywearing

ok, my brain's going to explode... too much thinking, not enough coffee

I have played DDR while babywearing. Not very skillfully, but I'm not that great at it to begin with. It's mostly for my older dd and my dh's entertainment, and Evie likes it when I jump around!

I say you can't climb a tree while BWing. Has that one been said yet?
post #30 of 72
hmm I guess you *could* play DDR lol..I just go for the faster songs

You can't soak in a nice hot bath.
You can't ride a quad (was that said?? my brain is mush right now lol)
You can't try on new tops- at least I can't, if someone knows how to get a shirt on and off around a baby carrier lmk I always have to take DS off first.

What's a quad?

Monie, that's two points for you, nice rebut. Mine also likes it when I dance with her in the podaegi, she thinks it's funny.

DBasset- trying on new tops- good one!!! And to that I add, OR DRESSES.

You can't sail while baby wearing. OK you could sit on the sail boat wearing a baby, but be an active participant and walking around in places where a good centre of gravity needed? I don't think I'd risk it - woman wearing baby overboard!

What's an ATV? Oh, forget it, off to google.

All-terrain vehicle. Like a Mars rover for the Earth. Got it.

littlemizflava... thanks for bumping the thread! Points tallied... however, I would like to refute:

flying in a plane: do you mean flying the plane yourself? Because I wore my baby on the plane.
in jail: there are special women and childrens rooms in some places, aren't there? Well in Asia they have them and you can (and people do) wear their babies in there.
riding on amusement park rides... well what about "It's a Small World"?

Done that too. That's the only way I can get the driveway plowed enough to get the car out (or anyone else in to watch her for me). We only go about 2mph. I wouldn't do it in sand dunes or anything dangerous though. No way.

that one's already been refuted.
