This carrier would be a great way to get my husband babywearing! He says all of my other carriers and slings are too "girly". I would love to win one of these Becos! I've never used one before.

We would love a Becco! My husband happily wore DS when I made him a wrap in what he considered to be a 'manly' color, olive green. I'm sure he'd also approve of helicopters :)

I would love to have one of these carries! As for getting any one (male or female) to baby wear: Model, model, model. I can't count the number of people who have stopped me while wearing one of my babies and asked me where to get one of those wraps.
i would love a carrier from beco! i believe education is what will get papas (men) to understanding and believing the benefits of babywearing. through advertising and women explaining the benefits. my husband proudly wears our daughter knowing how good it is for her to be so close and safe with her papa.
I would love to win a Beco! We are currently trying for our second child and could always use a beautiful carrier. My DH used to wear our daughter when she was a baby and he loved it. I think more dads will wear their babies if they see lots of other dads already doing it. I think the key is to have awesome carriers for the dads that already baby wear. Then, other dads will want to as well.
I would love one of these carriers!! I think men would be interested in wearing their baby if the carrier was in masculine colors and designs and also if they were educated on the benefits of the bond between baby and daddy.
I would love to win one of these. My husband's in the Army and is in a helicopter unit so this would be great. He's currently deployed and it would be nice for him to carry him around once he gets home instead of me because he thinks my carrier is too girly. I know I would have an easier time getting him in one of these then some of the other ones.
I would love to win a Beco!
We have a Gemini, and my husband and I both love it! Bringing in new boyish patterns and neutral colors is a great way to make a carrier more appealing to Dads. I know for my husband when I was shopping around for a carrier he asked that it not be in any funky colors. So we got the jet black Gemini.
I would ♥ to try a Beco! Thanks for the giveaway!
I think that a quick and easy way to get more dads to babywear is to get these carriers into the hands of famous dads - rockers, sports stars, actors, etc. The more they are featured as status symbols, the more dads will want to do it to!
I can't go anywhere without my Beco! So much so that I need a new one and one of these would be perfect!
As for getting more men to babywear... I have racked my brain trying to get hubby to wear our kids and he just doesn't see it as a "manly" thing to do... so maybe something to combat that.
I would love one of these carriers. If they make them easily adjustable from a woman to mans torso length and make in neutral colors i think many men would enjoy carrying their bundles of joy. And with them being able to carry baby on their front or back and facing mommy or daddy or facing out to see everything else in the world. :)
I am in love with Beco and their wonderful products! We just bought our first Gemini 2 months ago and have been amazed at how it fits my body not to mention the adorable designs. I would love love love to win the Butterfly 2. :)
I actually love the Duke print. I think it would entice men...
Though DH usually doesn't BW mostly because he gets hot with the kids on him.... I don't know how to alleviate that though.
My husband would love one of these for our son Henry!!
I think we could get more dads babywearing by showing them how its done in pictures! We could all send in our photos of our guys babywearing to magazines, newspapers, online groups and forums, etc. We could also all take short videos about how to babywear as a dad and post them to you tube and facebook. This would show how easy, practical, and fun it is!
Dads learn a lot by watching other dads!
I would love one of these carriers! My idea for getting more dads to babywear is to advertise in men's magazines...maybe get one of them to do a feature on the millions of pros to babywearing and definitely include more men in your advertising campaign!
I have been eyeing a Beco Baby Carrier for 2 years now...but cannot afford one. I have a 25 month old and a 2 month old newborn! I would love to win one! Some suggestions to get men more interested in babywearing....keep some of the fabric designs gender-friendly; have ads with men wearing the carriers; and stress that getting things done around the house and outside of the home are more convenient with a carriers vs a stroller or a slow walking toddler. Men like to find the easiest way to get things done and a carrier can help!
