Because I love having 2 free hands. It's much easier to shop.

Because dd loves it.

Because with dd was tiny people didn't try to reach in an touch her in the sling. I do have to say that it surpised me that more people do touch her now that she faces out than when she's in her stroller. I guess because she's right there in front of them.

when the babes were young it was so that they felt secure and they were more content when I did.Not to mention that when they needed to be held I could still do other stuff.Now I wear Ollie because he shoots off like a rocket but on my back in the ergo he is secure.it leave my hands free for the other two when we need to cross the street etc.

i started because when my lo was born he wouldnt have it any other way literally screamed endlessly when put down.. so why even try it broke my heart. but now b/c i love having him right with me all the time.. plus its convenient as heck. also good way for my SO to bond with our LO he felt very helpless and didnt really know his role... babywearing really helped him learn to comfort and nurture our LO.

I love BW because "Mother is the habitat of the baby.. and toddlers".
It's safe, makes our life easier.: easier to go in the back in a public bathroom, safe to walk in the street, when you cross the street in a stroller, the baby went first.

I started babywearing when my first was born. In our family children go where we go so wearing them is a great option. My children are now grown and I wear the children I take care of.

All the usual reasons of course. And if I put her in a shopping cart or stroller then she wants OUT!!!!! If I carry her in my arms then she wants DOWN!!!!!!! Not to mention the fact that I am wimpy and she is heavy, I just can't carry her for very long.
But if she's in the carrier( currently an Ergo) then she is content to stay for HOURS, as long as we are moving and doing something interesting.
