My husband used to wear our dd while playing Rockband and Guitar Hero with his friends.  She loved it.  We love the Becco!

My DH loves to wear our girls and would love one of these!  My favorite is when he straps them to his back in the summer while he grills so that they can hang out outside with him.

To encourage more men to baby wear, try using more men bwing in the photos, and any advertising!

joy.gif Yay! I would LOVE to win one!

As for getting more men to wear one- I think it just takes knowledge of why. My husband had no problem wearing our daughter because he knew the benefits and cares about his daughter more than what people might think of him. He was definately laughed at but didn't care, realizing they laugh out of ignorance. I think it also helped knowing how attractive I think it is! smile.gif

Would love to win a Beco! They are extremely comfortable and stylish. I have been trying to get my husband to ditch the Bjorn for quite some time, but think I finally might have him convinced that when we have #3, he will need to put #2 on his back, preferably in a Beco and then he would have room on the front to carry #3, while #1 walks. He said I think that is a good idea! So we need to get him a Beco. ASAP, well by the end of the year at least.

I would love a Beco carrier! I babywear my DD all the time! I think men find them hard to manage with the straps to adjust ect. I taught my DH how to use my carriers, now he is more likely to use them!

I would love to win one of these carriers. Carriers make life with baby so much easier. These would also make my husband more likely to babywear because they are not girl and not just plain black (he can't stand all the black baby stuff). He has used carriers with our older children but hasn't enjoyed it, this carrier he would enjoy. Our family goes hiking A LOT in warm weather and this would make it SO much easier!

We would love one! For my husband he loved going on walks with our babies when they were little but would get so worn out from holding them. Using the carrier was a relief and also freed up his hands. It's also been helpful since we have an active 3 year old son. He can take our son outside to play but still bond with our daughter who absolutely loves to be with her daddy and outside! It's comfy for daddy and comforting for baby too. :)

Dh says women love men who babywear. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but he does seem to get on really well with the moms at the playground.

I think that having more men model on babywearing sites and packaging would make a big difference. Otherwise, a man might look at the marketing materials and think "Oh, this isn't for me."

These would be perfect for my partner. I use a wrap but he doesn't think it is safe and is scared to used it, but this carrier woulb be perfect for him and the baby.

Dads get less time with the kiddos, so when they do it's nice for them to be active and wear baby for closeness, my hubby loved wearing our girls and would love your carrier for # 3 when we do get prego again;)  And he's really hoping for a boy this time!  I think Dad's feel more stylish wearing these than pushing a stroller!

Real men wear babies!!  My husband wore our daughter as much as I did and we both really enjoy baby wearing.  It's one of the most natural things and people always marveled at how our baby had such a good disposition and didn't cry much.  We attribute that to baby wearing and nursing on demand.  :)  Your carriers are beautiful and we would love to have one!!

I agree with "manly" patterns... maybe even some masculine features like a D-ring clip for keys or a velcro area for patches?

 

Also, just emphasizing the men more in advertising might be beneficial.

with my husband I didn't push it, he just saw the great bond my children and I formed from babywearing. He was in awe of how it soothed them and calmed them. He offers on a regular basis now :)

I always had a soft structured carrier around for my husband to use, but he never seemed to wear it. Finally, once our kiddo got heavy enough, his arms were tired and he gave in. I started finding the Ergo with all the straps on the largest settings, so I knew it was getting some use when I wasn't around. wink1.gif We're going to try for #2 this year, and would love to try a Beco.

I would love one of these carriers! My husband quickly became a convert to baby carriers when he realized how easy it was to get our little girl to sleep in one. That, and it was so much easier to protect her from anyone and anything when he held her close. ;-)  Gotta love protective daddies!
