Seriously?? What if you said no~would they go out and buy one for you? And obviously they haven't priced quality baby carriers lately. You can get a cheap umbrella stroller for less money than a good carrier.

I have a friend whose mom offered to buy her a double stroller. Once the stroller was picked out and paid for the mom asked my friend if she would, "stop using that poverty stricken jungle wrap," (known to most MDCers as a ring sling).

DS is very possessive of his pouch too - I was shwoing a friend how to use a Hotsling with her baby and he was MAD! He was not at all impressed that I was putting another baby in his "UP" and walking around with them - he eyed that baby suspiciously the whole visit from his hip perch .

question about the animal carriers... I'm all about the animals, but animals in a carrier? what for? I carried my son almost 24/7, well at least when we were awake, until he learned to crawl and wanted almost nothing to do with it, although we do use it occasionally now. We have two cats, but i dont see the point or the need for the carriers, or the dog strollers. I mean I guess if you had an older animal that had physical problems and couldnt get around on their own, but other than that, isnt part of having a healthy animal making sure they get enough exercise and walks and everything? How is a dog getting enough "walk" time if he is in a carrier or stroller? I'm so not trying to offend or make anyone upset, I just honestly dont understand. I know its way off topic too so I apoligize for that.

A little girl at the grocery store asked me why I had my baby in my shirt when I was wearing her in the Moby. It was cute!

I've actually had several people say something about the Moby being a shirt - I've explained it's actually a wrap, but got some blank stares.

That's awesome. I'd wear a live bear! JK.

I've put my dog into both a wrap (FWCC) and my RS. She wasn't as happy with it as I would have thought (she LOOVES to be held, so I thought she'd be thrilled to be in the baby carrier). So I didn't keep her in it long, but DH took some photos & we laughed.

ETA:
Comments I hear:
"Wow, best seat in the house!"
"Aww, he looks so comfy!"

But in the RS in a hip carry, I usually keep his whole body inside. Otherwise he tries to reach for things & lean over -- then it feels like he's going ot fall out & it's uncomfortable.
A cashier at the grocery store said, "Woa, it looks weird, like a little floating head there!"
