My favorite thing about babywearing is being able to keep my child close and comforted while still having a hand or two free to get things done!

My favorite thing about babywearing is that I don't have to choose between snuggling with my babe and getting things done - I can do both at once!

I love that babywearing frees up both hands, and makes it so easy to get a baby to sleep while out and about!

What I love about babywearing is being hands free while shopping, cleaning, etc.  When my baby was really tiny it definitely cut down on unwanted touching by strangers because she was in my personal space rather than in a shopping cart or stroller.

I love how my daughter falls asleep on me and I can feel her chest going up and down with her breaths.

My favorite thing about babywearing is being able to keep my newborn close while actively parenting my toddler! I can do so much more with my hands free!

I love not having to lug around a big stroller everwhere and having baby close while I chase around my toddler

I love how much easier it is to wear babies than struggle with strollers, and I honestly feel a bit smug when walking past stroller parking at museums, zoos, restaurants.

My favrite thing about baby wearing is not only the closeness that it fosters with my new baby, but also that I can maintain a happier relationship with my older daughter and do more with her since my hands are free.

My favorite thing besides keeping the babies close and snuggly is how it makes things like grocery shopping a little bit easier.

My favorite thing about babywearing is being able to 'hold' my child without getting tired and give her what she needs for affection.  It also doesn't hurt that it leaves both hands free!

All requirements for the contest have been met.

My favorite thing about baby wearing is the closeness between my daughter & I. As soon as I strap her in she is instantly calm and it brings us both peace.

Thanks for the contest!

I love the closeness. It makes nursing, things around the house, even nap time so much easier!

My favorite things are not having to use a stroller and the ability to cuddle and nurse while also getting other things done :)

My favorite part about baby-wearing other than having baby so close that I can smooch on them, is that I have much more maneuverability in crowds. It also makes me feel like my baby is better protected, since I can keep people and things at arms-length away from the baby much easier than in a stroller.

 

I was already a fan of Mothering on FB but just fanned Boba as well. I'm due with my 3rd in the next few weeks and a new carrier would be awesome for my new little one!

 

I also used to have a Mothering account but it's with my old e-mail, so I had to make a new one. Boo!

My favorite thing about babywearing is keeping my toddler close! Much easier to chat and sing on a walk when he's on my back than in a stroller.
