I have rheumatoid arthritis and it is was much easier and more comfortable to wear my daughter than carry her in a car seat or try to just hold her. DD is too big for babywearing but we are planning on another baby that this would be great for!
Shared it on FB, liked Boba, and already liked Mothering!

I WOH part-time, am a doula & childbirth educator, home/unschool, and hope we are nearing the center of chaos
My favorite thing about baby wearing is that my babe is safe and comfortable, cuddled next to me. My son has multiple allergies and reflux. He was always the happiest baby all day long, held upright and warm next to his mama. At night, when he came out of the carrier, he spent hours crying as I tried to comfort him. No one but family knew this other side of him, everyone thought he was just the happiest baby they'd ever seen. I firmly believe that baby wearing kept him happy and comfortable all day long, giving him a joyful infancy and giving me "sanity" time to cope with the difficulties of night time.
Now I'm sharing on FB :)
married to DH, mother to two amazing little boys born May 18/2010 and May 20/2013!
Infertility has been part of this journey - no more littles for us, but so grateful we have two happy healthy boys and we can now begin to heal from that experience
Being a busy Mom to 5......have to say being able to hold and comfort baby, while having 2 hands free for my other children is a one reason I love babywearing!
my favorite thing about babywearing is that i don't miss moments with my baby - facial expressions, expressed needs, joy, sadness, etc - that i might if they were in a stroller facing away from me. i can talk with them and share those special moments.
My favorite thing? Just one? :) Well I do love being able to comfort a teething, sick, sleepy... etc... baby/toddler while taking care of the other kids/housework etc... As well as the ease and convenience when out in crowded areas (markets etc...)
I love baby wearing because it keeps my son close to me, we can breastfeed on demand and keep up with toddler brother.
Sometimes he baby wears to calm down and fall alseep. Great for grocery shopping... we do not own a stroller.
I'm an expecting mama, but I know babywearing will be for me! I feel so close to my growing baby now, and I think it will be so wonderful to keep her close to me. I also love the freedom I'll have by babywearing!
Bebe (37) & Hubby (37) married since 2010 and have one sweet girl (1).
