Babywearing stash - Page 3

post #41 of 55
Oh, I have the weirdest thing I got in that big lot of baby stuff from a friend--It's like a framed hiking backpack, only I just noticed it has wheels on it. Like, it converts from a baby carrier to a stroller? I haven't really messed with it, but my gearhead boyfriend saw it and got really excited. He also likes the Bjorn I inherited, so it looks like we're keeping those. I don't care if he's using a Didymos or a weird stroller contraption sling thing, I'm just glad he's stoked on babywearing.

One more thing--they should make baseball cards out of slings and cloth diapers.
It would be a good way to get the dads interested. They'd be all like, "Wow, you have the 2006 Maya Wrap in multi-jewel? I'll trade that card for the 2005 Ellaroo hand-embroidered mei tai."

You guys are a BAD influence. I just bought a Peanut shell (new) for dirt cheap from someone on another board. I so need one, though. But dh will flip, as usual.

That would help them learn the different names and brand too!
My DH does now know what is what!

I'm soo showing this thread to DH. Need to convince him that other mommies have multiple babycarriers, too, lol. We have a Babasling that the Bear LIVED in for his entire infancy and an Ergo that we bought too late. I want to get a fancy schmancy BabyHawk, but we're waiting until after the anatomical scan. Sooo thinking pink, I want to get a cutesie girlie one.

A good way to explain carriers to DHs is to compare them to tools: different ones work better for different job

Oh, and pay a visit with your DH to www.thebabywearer.com to see the stash pictures some ladies there have. We are talking DOZENS!

I have 4 no-sew wraps and my mom found a second hand ring sling and is sending it to me. We are really really living on a budget right now, so I can't justify spending money on anything other than plain pieces of cloth. Color me pea-green with jealousy about all of you Ladies' wonderful stashes.

I have a decent sized stash...a little of every thing but I made most of it. From the easy pouches to the time intensive SSC, ifyoucansewyoucan easily make a fleece ponch or a simple Mei tai. My only splurge was the Girsol. ANd I'm so glad I did it.

I just got two Moby wraps at a shower today! One used, sage-colored, and the chocolate one from our registry. Wondering if I should return the chocolate one (although I really like that color better) because do we really need two of the same kind? Don't have any other babywearing gear yet... registered for a hotsling and an ergo.

They are not alike...the color is different! What if your outfit matches sage better than chocolate? It's very important to have options so you always coordinate!

I think Austin Baby (on South 1st and Mary) does sling exchanges with used slings. I know they carry Moby's if you wanted to exchange the new one for diapers or whatever. They also have 360 Baby, which is a locally made pouch sling a lot like hotslings, and they carry Ergo.

Jen, once again, your info recall is amazing. What would I do without you on the scene? I'm gonna check that out. If I can trade the used one for something else, that would be ideal!
