The sling gave my husband the opportunity to participate in parenting our daughter in a way that would not have been possible otherwise, I think. The only way she would go to sleep for the first year is to nurse or walk in the sling. On those long nights with a sick baby, we took turns with her in the sling for two hours at a time. In here mind, we were the same comfort. That took such a load off of me.
They have this wonderful, cuddly relationship that just makes me gush with love. And it only took a couple of weeks before my husband decided that he didn't like my padded sling, and he went and got himself a more manly Maya Wrap.
He liked the Bjorn, too, but it got uncomfortable at about 15 lbs. Now he loves the Ergo.
Loooooove slinging husband . . .
