Do we have a babywearing picture thread? I tried looking but couldnt find one. Well I am a soon to be babywearer : Since Im in the market for babywearing gear I would love to see some pics of y'all with your little ones. Maybe tell us what type of carrier you are wearing and your likes and dislikes about it.

DH with DS:

This one's called a sleepy wrap, but it's basically the same as a Moby.

It's been great so far. DS sleeps well in it, and it distributes the weight well and it's easy to carry baby in without getting worn out. Great for newborns who like to be swaddled It does take a bit to get used to it since it's a big long piece that you wrap all around yourself, but once you get used to putting it on and getting baby in, it's pretty simple. The fabric is nice and stretchy.

For the newborn stage, my Mama Kangourou wrap was great! It felt nice and snug, so I didn't worry that DS would fall out, and the weight was evenly distributed on my shoulders.

I love the Hotsling for quick hip carries, it's great when he's fussy around the house and my arms are tired:

He's just getting big enough for the Ergo. I love that the weight is on my hips more than on my shoulders, and it's so easy to pop him in and out.

He loves to chew on it too!

We have a Sleepy Wrap too. Dh land baby Z love it.

We have lots of other carriers too. I am loving my ring sling again with a little one but I wear it around the house to get things done when no one is around to take pictures.

DH, Hotsling, 5-6weeks

DH, Hotsling, 3mo, sorta upright cradle carry? DH loves his hotsling. I can't really do pouches. I have a super short torso and big boobs. If I get one that has the babe at the right height, the fabric is stretched too tight across my boobs--no room for babe. If I get one with room for babe, I'd be carrying below my waist.

Zolo solarveil ring sling, cradle carry, 2mo The shoulder isn't spread out very well in that pic. I liked the Zolo for summer. DS is an April baby, so I loved how lightweight and breathable the solarveil was. Once he could hold his head up, he adored the kangaroo carry, facing out and watching the whole world. If he started nodding off, I turned him around tummy-to-tummy.

Ergo, front carry, 5mo I love the closeness of the front carry. I didn't like the Ergo for the newborn stage, even with the insert. I think it's because my boobs made the fit really odd. Once he was old enough to stick his head above the boobs, he really liked the Ergo.

Ergo, back carry, 17mo I switched to a back carry around 12-13 months. My hips thanked me. For short jaunts, I often still do a front carry.

Too cute...I love this. Have you tried a Moby wrap? I was debating on getting a Moby. What is the difference between the two of them?

Your son is too cute...he looks so comfy. I just love the pics with DH carrying him. Im really hoping that we like our hotsling. I really like the option of cradle and hip carries for when he is older. I really like the Zolo ring sling as well. I like the fact that you said it is lightweight and breathable. Living in Texas I think I will be needing something like this for the hot summers. Love the last pic...beautiful.

I've never actually seen a Moby, but I think they're basically the same. The bundler is a stretchy wrap for newborns. It has serged edges, though & I think the Moby has hemmed. I really didn't like the serging, the edges seemed very floppy to me and it was hard to get them tight.

Dd about a month ago in our dyed Vicky Storch (now sold, )
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...DSC05779-1.jpg It was a wonderful super supportive wrap and I miss it! I was just a little weary of the color.

Dd in Baby Bali Breeze 'Gaia'
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...p/DSC05174.jpg
a great summer wrap, more comfortable for me than the Vatanai, another thin cool wrap. Like the BBB for more cushy fabric and fun colorways.

Dd at three months in our Girasol 'Earthy Rainbow', on Halloween night. DH carried her in arms 20 min, wore out and handed her to me and I carried her for the next two hours, lol. ER was my gateway wrap, lol. It was gifted to me at my Blessingway before she arrived and is very special to us. Easy to learn with and good for newborn up to 20+lb. Still use it now and then, she is 14mo and 25lb now.

I wanted to show how easy it is to travel in a ring sling (Mayawrap)! DS outgrew at ~2.5, when his legs started to hit my knees as I walked (I'm 5'1", DH is 6'7"). Now I'm using the same one w/DD, but we don't have pics in it yet.

I'll have to see if I can dig some up. I only really have self pics in the mirror, and well, they suck.

Kangaroo Carry in the Hotsling (about 4.5 months old here)

And here at a little over 2.5 in the hip carry, again Hotsling

Front Carry in a Mama-Made Mei Tei (a friend made it not me!)

Back carry

Girl is always lopsided

http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p...a/HPIM0719.jpg



I bought the M.T. when she was about 7 months old and started using it immediately I loved it! My hotsling had recently begun to hurt my back at the shoulder when I used it for a long time. And I quickly mastered the back carry, and continued to use it on a daily basis until about 4 months ago. (She's 3 now) I still take it with me when we're going to be out for a long time, for when she gets tired of the stroller, then walking, and finally needs a nap. Though now she's more comfortable on my front than my back.
