He loves the hip hammock, has tried my maya wrap a few things, but is frightened by the didymos. Once ds is old enough, dh is pysched to use a back pack carrier.

My dh has tried it a couple of times, but since ds doesn't settle in it quickly like he does for me he gives up and want to just carry him.

DH will wear Austin in the Snugi. The sling I had was too small for him, and he hasn't had a chance to try out the new one yet.

DH loves the slings(we have 5 different ones!). He wears our little one in it. With our older son, Noah, he wears him in the backpack for trips to the park, zoo, walks, etc...

I am very proud of DH. I thought he was just using the sling to make me happy once in a while, Ryan is 5 weeks and we haven't used it a ton yet.

Yesterday, we were visiting with DH's family including a brother that lives pretty far away and we only see once or twice a year. Anyway, I had Ryan in the sling and asked DH if he wanted to hold him and he said yes and just kept him in the sling and had me help him put it on. I was suprised he would wear it in public and with his family, but then his mom was taking some pictures with the grandkids and sons and he just kept it on with Ryan in it. I was very surprised, obviously he isn't embarassed at all. I am very excited about that, he has agreed with all of the AP style parenting choices I have talked to him about even though we know of no one else who practices them.

Just had to share,
Stephanie

I think it is really wonderful to see so many babywearing dads.

Dad will occasionally wear Hunter in the Bean carrier ( or did til i sold it). Right now he prefers to carry him in his arms but Hunter is coming to the backpack age which is Dh's favorite babywearing activity. I think I may buy him another bean carrier soon since he really liked it. ( I honestly didn't realize how much til I sold it to a mama who needed it more than I thought we did).

Dh wore dd in the Bjorn a lot when she was tiny. He really liked it, and would even insist on it. He did this when we were out and about til she was around four months, then just carried her in his arms; now, she loves to ride on his shoulders. He did use the sling at home ocasionally, too. I am rememering when she was a newborn, and we used one of tose awful "baby suv's"; she was SOOOO teeny in that thing! I got a sling when she was eight weeks and never looked back!

I posted other because while DH is more or less humoring me on the babywearing thing, he's said that he probably won't wear a sling, he'll just do like he did with his first dd and carry in-arms. He's got big, long, strong arms (a bit disproportionately long, in fact) that won't get tired. When babe is bigger we'll probably get him a backpack to carry w/ as well, he can carry anything on his back for hours on end. He's still not sold on my resistance to the stroller and baby buckets, though.

DH was wearing DS on Saturday night and we were walking and on the other side of this large walkway was another daddy with a sling just like ours in another color wearing his baby, it was really cool.

DH and I are always arguing (in a nice way) over who gets to wear the baby.

DH is sooo proud of dd and loves to wear around town. I also suspect he loves the admiring eyes he gets from all the ladies who gush over him when he wears her, LOL.
