I love Babywearing. My favorite thing about it is that is an extension of how I would have a child in my arms anyway. The carriers just make what seems natural to me easier to do. My favorite feeling in the world is a tiny person laying their head down on my back and falling asleep. It is a great way to connect to your little ones and get things done at the same time.

I love the security it gives my son when we are out taking in the world. He can cuddle in if he get's nervous; or reach about and grab at people & things, if he's curious to explore. 

 

 

(ps I liked both companies on facebook)

My favorite thing is having my son so close, comforted and secure.

I am a new mother to be, two weeks exactly. I turn 38 weeks and I'm very excited as well as very nervous. I'm new to the game of baby wearing. I received the Moby wrap as a baby shower gift but don't have much practice with it yet.  I also purchased at a children's exchange store the Bjorn carriers as I was told that it was easy for the fathers. I went to a nearby farmers market and met with the Miami Baby wearing group. They advised me on the Bjorn not being safe for baby's spine and they suggested the Boba carriers. I'm a little sad about the Bjorn and would love to try the Boba carrier but we don't have the $ right now to get one. Now I see that there is a giveaway and so here I am. Good Luck to all the mothers out there and thank you for all the information you all share it is very helpful.

My favorite thing about baby wearing is it gives me freedom to get around the city, often unfriendly for stroller and not have to worry about elevators and stairs.. and also allows me to keep baby close!

I think I have too many favorite things about babywearing. What isn't to like? I love being hands free; I love having my baby close and enjoying skin-to-skin time; I love avoiding strollers; I love being able to do stuff around the house while spending close time with my baby; most of all, I love the sleepy snuggles I get when my baby just wakes up from a wrap-nap.

Babywearing is what saved my sanity when I brought home my preemie from the NICU. He was five weeks one day old, but still only 35 weeks gestation, 4 lbs 4oz, and cried alot! Now he is 20 months old and loves to be strapped to his Mama still!

My favorite thing about baby wearing is that it seems most natural to me. I always found strollers, swings, and other baby equipment cumbersome and difficult to use. I love that I can throw in a carrier and take my baby anywhere in it.

I like that babywearing makes it easy to include baby in what I am doing, whether that is grocery shopping, going for a walk, or simply doing laundry. :)

I love babywearing because they are always happy when they are close to mamma!  When you wear your baby you are free to continue to do almost anything with baby!  Strollers don't go everywhere, but baby can go anywhere that mom does when they are being worn!

I also like that when I wear my baby is harder for people to touch her hands and face with their germy hands.

My favorite thing about babywearing is actually how it helps my husband and daughter connect. Whenever I'm at work, my husband uses our carriers to relax and calm our daughter, or to help her go to sleep. I love seeing them cuddled up together.

I love how much more social people are when we carry E, but it is easier to keep strangers from touching her (especially during cold & flu season).

I have 2 babies (17 months & 8 weeks!) so babywearing is crucial to getting out of the house with them! I also love it when people approach me to ask about how I manage to deal with two young babies - babywearing is always my answer! Thanks for the chance to win a Boba - would be nice to win one for my hubby to help out! :)

I don't babywear anymore, but when the kids were small I loved having my hands free, especially when DS was new and DD was running around getting into trouble.  As DS got older, wearing him was a habit so he transitioned to riding in a frame hiking backpack and was there until about age 2.  I was much more mobile without a stroller, he liked being high so didn't complain, and I really LOVED the exercise. I could get him into the pack and on my back in half the time it took my friends to lug their stroller out of the trunk.  And I had legs of steel :-)

I love the facilitation of attachment, bonding, and emotional development via baby wearing. Plus its really convenient for moms! Its one of the best things about being a mom...100% snuggletime.

My favorite thing about babywearing is how simple it is - anywhere I can go, my son can go, with no bulky stroller required.

I love not having to worry about packing a huge stroller in my tiny car every time we go any where.
