Not the best quality pic, but my proudest babywearing moment. When DD#2 was around 3 months old I took both my kids on solo trips to Disney with no stroller. I managed to get both of them, completely asleep into these carries and get them from the far end of Epcot to the car with no issues. You should have seen some of the looks I got though! Ooh boy! Everyone was asking if I needed a hand...of course I just held up my two completely free hands and said, "Nope! Babywearing is great!".

Out for a walk with my daughter and her new baby brother. We thought she would enjoy a doll carrier to be like mommy and daddy.

As a teen mom, babywearing was a great way to bond with my baby and was the start of my natural parenting journey.

Babywearing was great for my more cautious, wary little one.

My girls are five now and we are past babywearing.  However, my friend Marcia needs a Moby Wrap for her new little one.  Hence, I am entering for her :)

I can't even begin to count the hours/days/months I spent babywearing my two sons: Arlo (now 3), and Nelson (now 16 months).  Neither of my boys were good sleepers/nappers, but they would always nap in the Moby or Ergo Sport.

 

Here is one of my favorite babywearing pictures of me and Arlo:

Here's a photo of myself with my two daughters, Nora, 9 months, and Sophia, 11years, on South Manitou Island, Michigan! This was partway through a 7 mile hike through some difficult terrain-I was worn out at the end, but we all had a great time and the sling worked great! This photo is front of a shipwreck not far off the shore- it's really amazing!
