I would love to win!!

 

My husband doesn't mind babywearing, but I think he prefers patterns that aren't too feminine!

I would like one of these carriers. Make it simple to use and in a neutral color and more men will use it.

Would love a new carrier, and Beco has such great designs. More attention to celebrity dads who are babywearers may attract new dads to the practice. I have seen photos on blogs of Brad Pitt and others doing it, so why shouldn't all men?

We would enjoy one of these.  With our first DS we had another carrier brand that we both used and I'm looking forward to baby #2 to have the same experience.

I would love one of these. To encourage more men to wear their babies you have to show more men wearing their babies. My husband won't baby wear because he feels it will emasculate him. Once it's shown that real men wear their babies I think more men will feel it's socially acceptable and do it.

I would love this carrier! I think explaining the benefits of baby wearing encourages daddies to use them! By making the style simple and making it easy to use, daddies will love them as much as mommies do! I breastfeed my babies to sleep so it is sometimes hard for my husband to get them down for a nap when I am not home. When I explained how fast they fall asleep when they are being worn, he was sold! Now he is a baby-wearing lover too...and our girls are happy babies!

Would absolutely love one of these carriers. I think keeping neutral color options for carriers and making sure they adjust for a larger frame are what will make more men wear their babies. My hubby will babywear no problem and he doesn't care what color it is but he's more atypical. :)

I think more Daddies would wear their babies if they knew about the Beco construction and style.  Carriers don't have to be girly, and there are plenty of manly choices from Beco!  If I won one of these carriers, I'd give it to my sis who is having her 3rd babe in August! So much fun!

I'd love one. My partner likes that our baby is often happier in the carrier and falls asleep easily compared to giving expressed breastmilk, rocking, or just holding.

I would love one of these. I think to get more men to babywear, we need to encourage simplicity.  I am guilty of this myself, often switching between different types of carriers and I've found that wraps intimidate my husband, and so do mei tais.  He was something, simple and easy, and is really interested in only learning one carry, and not a variety like I am.

Awesome! I'd love one. And I definitely think that more masculine carriers would encourage dads to baby wear more often.

I would love to win one of these carriers!  I am a full-time student who is going to be on the job hunt this Fall, and plan to wear my daughter as much as humanly possible while I am around to help forge a stronger bond.  My husband is kind of wary of wearing her in PUBLIC (tough guy thing I guess), but has agreed to do so at home because I kind of made a fuss about how important it was.  In public, the carrier is going to have to be a neutral color, and advertising is going to have to become more mainstream to open them up to the idea.

I'd love a Becco, I wanted one a few years ago but at the time didn't have the money.  We still carry our youngest when we go out and hope to have another baby in the next year.

 

I think simplicity and neutral colors are always good. My husband has worn all of our children in various carriers and never really cared to much what they look like but he does like something that is easy to use.

Winning one of these Super cute and eco-conscious carriers would be a dream! 

 

To get a man to wear one....well my husband wore our first baby, we had a carrier in black.  But he would rock a brown non-flowery print too.

 

Thanks =)

I would love a beco carrier! I think men would like neutral colored carriers or sport themed carriers.

my husband loves to wear our little guy! we would love a becco!! he currently wears a pink wrap. he wasn't too keen on it at first but after trying it a few times, and seeing how quickly it soothed our son convinced him that baby wearing is great. he loves the special bond he and ds share as a result of this. he says he would love a non-pink becco in the future. his suggestion is to make it gender neutral shades as well. in his words "if it helps your kid go to sleep, why wouldn't you baby wear".

I would love to have one of these carriers for my son. My husband and I are expecting his arrival around May 6th.

I think you could get more fathers to wear baby carriers if they knew how it helped their child's emotional, mental & physical development, made them happier, cry less, gave them a sense of security, and helped them to bond with their child.

I want to win a BECO carrier! I love the designs and how easy and comfortable it looks. The only thing I could say about men wearing them more would be more "manly" designs.

I would love a Beco for my tall one year old!  And my husband has been a proud babywearer since the beginning--anything that makes our son happy & keeps him safe is cool with DH! =)

Definitely patterning has a lot to do with men being more on board. I'm sure many of them would like to be able to get team logos on them, or at least some more manly prints.

 

I would love a Beco!

Keep them easy to use, gender neutral, and advertise men using them.

We would love one of these

My old Beco just broke! I feel like I lost a limb! I would love to win a new one!

 

My hubby is great about wearing the kids. It was actually the Beco that converted him. I think it's all the buckles that make it look "technical" that made him give it a try.

ooohhhh we would love one of these, they are gorgeous!!  I think this is the  perfect carrier for men, since it is practical, functional and simple and boy/guy colors. I  agree more men in photos with cool carriers like this one would encourage them and also showing them how simple it is to use the buckles!!! my dh would love this carrier!!

Count me in too!  My DH loves to babywear too -- he wears every wrap -- even the more feminine ones, but he's probably in the minority.  And I agree with past posters, keep advertising with pictures of men, and also advertise the benefits of babywearing.

We would love to win a Beco. We have been experimenting with different carriers since DD was born, and for DH, he definitely prefers SSCs.  We have not been able to afford to pick up a Beco, although we have heard it is a better carrier than what we currently have. As far as getting more men to babywear, I think we first have to start with normalizing it for everyone. People always look at me with curiosity when I wear my baby in public - it's like they are surprised that she is not in a carseat or stroller.  Encouraging men to babywear will come naturally when more PEOPLE choose to babywear.

I think these carriers are quite attractive and would love to have one.  My husband is always trying to wear my pouch slings but he is much too big....he would actually be able to wear this one as well!

I would love to win one!  And as far as men?  Eh, I think they'll wear them or not and that the appearance/color might not matter (so long as it's not super-girly, perhaps)...I think if they're going to wear them, they're going to, and if they're not, they're not.  Maybe an article kind of targeted towards men about the benefits to the child of babywearing?  That's my only thought!

Would love to win one of those! I asked dh about how to get more guys interested in babywearing, and he said to make the carriers include enough pockets so that guys don't have to carry a diaper bag for short trips. smile.gif

I bet guys would wear babies more if there was little to no learning curve, fully adjustable to guys of all sizes (and heights) and guy prints/colors (my hubby loves sailboats). I borrowed a ton of carriers from a friend, the ones he was most likely to use involved webbing and buckles. Slings were definitely out and so were mei tai's (because they tie not clip). There was a hip carry only carrier that he liked that used buckles and straps, and I think he really liked it because of the simplicity and comfort.
