It's an Onya...it was my creation. I first sewed them myself, and now we are producing them! DH, SIL, Bro and I teamed up and we're now a family company. Pretty exciting, actually. :) The carrier also works on a chair. My siggy has the link to our website if you're curious. Or you can PM me...

My husband (DH? I'm new here) wears the baby. I think he likes it -- we have a couple of strollers and he finds it easier than using them. We started with a Moby, tried out some SSCs and then ended up with a couple gender-neutral ring slings. We are both on board with the Attachment Parenting philosophy/approach, so that's part of it. Explaining the reasoning behind it and showing him the studies behind it (he's a scientist) helped with that. But babywearing also makes life easier -- maybe you could entice him with that aspect? AND it's damn sexy.
Ex would on occassion wear a baby, but he complained the entire time. DP, Apollo, is totally excited for the opportunity to wear a wee one once we have our own baby.

I agree with the posters who said it's sexy. I've never in my life seen as many adoring women as when I walked in NYC with my husband while he wore our newborn in a woven wrap. These days the Boba gets a lot more use because it's so much easier to take baby in/out (she's walking now).
While I was pregnant my DH and I went together to a babywearing class at the local CD/BW store. We both got to try on many different types of carriers and we picked one out together. He was reluctant to try a woven wrap at first because of the complexity of wrapping it, but after the class he was convinced that it was his preferred option because of the back/shoulder support. They also gave us great tips on safely wearing a newborn, which helped a lot in those early days.
