My favorite thing about baby wearing is the closeness it creates.
The joys (and conveniences) of babywearing are seemingly endless! It certainly beats pushing around some bulky stroller and trying to maneuver it around. Example: I used to go to a neat little craft fair held semi-annually in Raleigh, NC, before moving to Wisconsin, and the first time I went, I wore my son. So convenient and easy to navigate the tight space in the small area it was held within. The second time, my son had outgrown the small carrier (that had been given to me, so I couldn't complain although I couldn't afford a nicer, bigger carrier). I had to push him around in a stroller, and it was nightmarish to say the least. It felt crowded, I kept bumping into carts and people, we were obstructing people's pathways, and it was extremely claustrophobic. Wearing my son, I could walk around, knowing he was securely close by me, and I didn't have to park the stroller to get him out if he was antsy. And I could browse with ease in any store, take a walk along the path near my apartment that didn't accomodate strollers, and more. I miss babywearing greatly, and were I to win, it would grant me the opportunity to happily carry my little guy around with me anywhere again without any headaches or worries!
I have so many favorite things about babywearing. First and foremost is that I get to keep my child close to me and can still use two hands to get things done. I have chronic pain problems so a great carrier is key. I wore my son in the ergo after 2 surgeries and it was perfect, it didn't hurt my back or my stitches, and I could still keep my son close. Now that we're TTC #2 I'd love to try this carrier!

I love babywearing because I can spend time with my little one as well as get done all that is required without feeling like I am ignoring her. She is able to interact with the world around her rather than being stifled in a pack-n-play or some other baby toy. Currently I own an ergo and I am curious to see if the boba carrier is comparable or better than the ergo. If I were to win it would be fun to discover the answer and then spread the word! :)
I have liked mothering and boba under the name Alexandra Daggett
My favourite thing was to have my daughter close....she felt safe, was able to nurse. I enjoyed the cuddles and being able to get things done. She still likes to be carried in her Boba. Looking forward to wearing my new LO when he/she comes later this year.
