I would love to win a baby carrier!!!! Any dad who wears a baby carrier looks caring and kind, maybe other celebrity dads could wear a baby carrier like a rockstar and then other dads might not think it looks too nerdy.

I would love to win. 

 

I think that men would be more likely to babywear if: 1- their wives left them with the kiddos for longer periods of time (Okay I am sort of kidding here) 2. The carriers were more neutral/manly  3. They figured out that their kiddo really likes it.  I know a dad who wears his baby all the time.  He is a stay at home dad and has learned to do it to survive.

my husband's excuse for not baby wearing is that it's not comfortable for the baby since his chest is so hard....not sure what could be done about that.  Maybe a chest pad/baby safe pillow for men's chest?  Also manly colors/themes, not just baby boy colors/themes, something a man might wear as a backpack something he would WANT to wear 'cause it looks so cool.  Ofcourse, you could always advertise them as "chick magenets"  I swear, he gets hit on more at the grocery store when wearing our baby than when he was single and childless!

I'd love to win a BECO!  I think one way to get more men engaged in babywearing for men to see it more frequently.  I can't tell you the number of comments (from men and women alike) we received when my DH and I were wearing both children while walking through the airport over spring break. It made traveling so effortless.

I would love to win this carrier!  I think more men would carry babies is we included them in our pregnancies and births (care providers need to recognize that this is their baby, too) and trust that they can care perfectly for their babies.  Also we need to ask and allow them to carry our babes! 

I think more marketing should be geared toward men - so show men using the carriers....show pictures of women and men helping each other put the carriers on, etc..

I like both the Eden and Espresso patterns/colors.    I think by offering more gender neutral options, the hubby's are more likely to use a carrier:)

I would love a Beco!!!!  I know that my husband would wear our children more often if the adjustments were easier for him.  He needs really elementary step by step directions - not because he isn't smart, but because he gets very overwhelmed especially when involving his kids.  Also, LOVE the sports team idea!  If my husband had an OSU carrier, he would never put our children down!  :)

This would be an awesome carrier to wear. I got my husband to babywear by buying him Dragon embroidery themed carriers, and skulls too ;-)

I'd love to win one! My husband loves to wear our LO. He feels good about having his own Moby, etc. instead of sharing mine. He had to have his own manly diaper bag, too.

Believe it or not, this is my first "entry" on a baby/mommy website/blog - for anything, including our baby. But I've heard nothing but amazing things about your carriers and just had to enter the contest. My husband and I have been on the hunt for a baby carrier that works right for us - something lightweight, not flashy and comfortable for both our baby girl and us. Voila, my extended facebook family tells me Beco is it! So, in hopes of winning one for my hubby (he'd just LOVE the simplicity and masculinity of the Metro Black) I'm optimistically throwing my name in the hat.

 

My husband is a wonderful dad. He wants to share his love of the outdoors with our little girl and I think Beco is just the carrier to help him do it - without putting out his back. Our sugar sweet sunshine is a true daddy's girl and every time my husband is around, he swoops her up in his arms. He'd love something to keep her snug and safe near him on hikes and walks - but being a single income family in a small working class town makes the "splurges" like a Beco carrier unattainable for us. Recently, he literally carried our 10 month old around SeaWorld for an entire day just to see the smile on her face. But the next day, his back was a mess. But he said he'd do it again because he loved being able to interact with her through it all. As she continues to grow I can only hope that a Beco carrier could help this smitten daddy keep his little girl close as they continue to explore the world around us. Thanks for your consideration - I hope that soon I will be able to be a mommy that says to my friends "YES, Beco is the BEST baby carrier around! You just HAVE to try one!" :0)

I'd love to win one of the Beco Carriers!! My husband loves wearing our dd - I know for him to wear her the carrier needs to be easy to use, be comfortable, and not too much of a girly pattern to the fabric. I would say those are the top 3 things most men look for in a carrier.

I would love to win a Beco baby carrier too!

 

Here is how you get guys to use one more often...Step one: The Beco has to be reversible so that both mom and dad can proudly display the design they prefer to show.

 

HOWEVER--this is the trick--Step 2: The designs need to be completely customizable. Men can upload words, drawings, photographic images, cartoons, designs, whatever floats their boat! 

 

If mom agrees, dads can even customize *both* sides, making it the 100% Cool Daddy Beco! 

 

Moms can choose her own customization for the reverse side of the Beco--or choose from one of your very lovely Beco designs instead!

 

Listen, the truth is that any guy who is confident enough to wear his baby in the first place, probably has no problem making a statement that's funny, bold, or unusual while he's at it!  And what better way to say it than on a baby's bottom!!! 

 

:-)

 

I hope you like this idea!

 

Love,

Melissa from Nutley NJ

Thanks for the contest - hope I win! I really like the idea of a reversible Beco so that there can be a "mommy" side and a "daddy" side

I would DIE to win one of these!!!

 

I think the prevalence of soft structured carriers (that AREN'T the Baby Bjorn) is doing a lot for helping to encourage men to babywear. Most men I know balk at the idea of wraps but are okay with a Beco, Ergo, Pikkolo, etc. I think it just takes seeing a few dads out and about who are clearly comfortable wearing their babies to pique a man's interest in wearing his own!

My husband would love one of these because he is not comfortable using the slings I usually wear. I think more p

ackaging and advertising specifically showing men babywearing would make it more acceptable.

i think that the key to helping dads babywear is having a carrier that is comfortable for them.  we love the beco because it adjusts to fit mama and dad!

 

please enter me in the drawing for a beco!

thanks

We love our trusty Beco. DS#1 practically lived in it. DH carried him in front and back doing all kinds of things from yardwork to hiking to traveling. It was great to be able to transfer him back and forth between us when needed too. Now with #2 due any day, we've been contemplating getting a second one. Definitely some masculine fabrics (prints, solid colors or phrases) might help and advertising showing versatile types of activities. It just makes the whole family that much more portable.

 

ps (I wrap too, but he doesn't like it. Too overwhelming.)
