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!  


Married to my soul mate and totally devoted to DD (6/08) and enjoying our 2 cats and many fish. Wishing for a "green" house in the country where we can raise more children!

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 :)

My favorite thing is that my babe rarely gets upset, because she has all she needs snuggled up on mama's chest

I love baby wearing because it lets me and baby adapt to her being outside(my belly:)Plus, once they like to move and be active this is the best way to get her to snuggle and settle.

I love babywearing for the simplicity of it - no need to lug a car seat holding a baby, baby/little one is content to be close and I can still use my hands to do what I want. Expecting baby #2 next month and I can see I will babywear even more this time, as I need my hands to keep track of our toddler.

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

I've been a babywearing Mama for 13.5 yrs now:)
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!

I love wearing my daughter because it allows us to sing songs and talk about things we see so much more than if she was in a stroller.

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.

I love that my baby can be so close to me without hindering my ability to get stuff done. My daughter is coming this June and I'd love to be able to show her off in a new Boba carrier.

My favorite thing about baby wearing is being able to go places with a small child without having to worry about the terrain.

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 having my hands free while wearing my infant so I can tend to my 3-yr-old, and that if needed, I can wear him too!

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!

My favorite thing about babywearing is that I can snuggle my little babe while still having  a hand free to tend to the older one.
