I wore my first baby all the time for the first 2 years of his life. I was going through a divorce when he was very young, so it was a blessing to me, as a single mom, to be able to take him to work with me. I wore him for most of the day as I taught yoga classes at a university and at my yoga studio. I also wore him when I was shopping because it was a much easier way to keep him out of mischief in the store! My carrier is so well loved that it actually has holes in the lining! Now that I have a baby again, I enjoy being able to go places and do things knowing that my little one is cared for and protected, snuggled up against me. My husband also loves wearing the little one!

My favorite thing about baby wearing is that while I am snuggling and connecting with my little one he is also reaping so many developmental benefits. It's the perfect way to love my little one.

My favorite thing about baby wearing (these days) is being able to nurse DS while grocery shopping (etc) and know I am meeting his needs and he is not one of those screaming babes in the cart basket while mom ignores and just keeps shopping!

I really like wearing my baby for the fact that he is so close and so soft to snuggle with. Having him so much a part of me in the postnatal period is a special blessing I would never want to miss.

I do not have Facebook or I would definitely LIKE and SHARE!! Thank you for this opportunity. smile.gif

I love being able to carry my son close and still have my arms free. I'm carrying him without actually using my hands. I also like seeing how some mothers easily nurse will carrying their child and am excited to try it with my next son due in July. 

 

I am a fan of both Mothering and Boba

I love babywearing for many reasons... Besides the obvious cuddles and kisses that can be given easily and freely; I can explore the world with my baby, staying connected as we adventure through our beautiful world.  What a gift to be able to see his face take in new sights and sounds!  I also love the ability to easily tune in to his needs and provide them instantly such as reassuring his safety or nursing him as needed.

I love having my little one close to experience everyday tasks together. I've read (possibly in Mothering) that baby wearing enhances language development!

I love babywearing because I have 6 kids and need my hands free as much as possible. I also love that my baby can be against me at all times when we're out, and he's comfortable sleeping anywhere as long as I'm wearing him.

I love having my little ones so close to me. They get the comfort of my heartbeat and I get the comfort of knowing they are so close.

Our favorite thing about baby carrying is how it makes baby part of the family and not just an observer.

There are so many things I love about wearing my babies! We get to be close and I'm still able to cook, clean, play, and chase. And I never have to worry about lugging a stroller.

I have liked and shared on facebook.

 

I am 38 weeks pregnant with my first, so I don't know exactly what I love about babywearing from firsthand experience, but from watching others it seems like a great way to be connected with your baby/child and involve them in your everyday activities. I would love to win a Boba carrier!

You want me to pick only one thing I like about baby wearing??? Closeness to my children, I suppose. Don't get me started on all of the wonders of baby wearing . . .

When my little guy was born he would cry non-stop. Baby wearing was a life saver!
