I am new to Mothering.com. I am the mother of a two year old boy and am due at the end of March with another boy.

 

I used cloth diapers with my son and plan to with my second. I am researching baby carriers trying to find the best thing for use with my two year old and eventually with our second son. So far we have had a bjorn backpack, but are interested in trying a wrap or sling....

Welcome to MDC!

 

Have you heard about Boston Babywearers?  You might benefit from one of their meetings as you'd be able to try on or just get your hands on a few different carriers.

I'm new to the forums as well. My son is 17 months now (still breastfeeding) and we are expecting #2 in September (but we aren't making any announcements to family/friends as I only just found out and it's still really early). We just moved to the South Shore in October from Maine.  Woodchick - do you know if they have any meetings other than Lexington/Arlington?


Two wonderful boys born Aug 2009 and Sept 2011, and #3 due April 2015! I'm also a CLC and postpartum doula.

I don't know if they meet elsewhere or not. I've never actually gone to a meeting but know some folks who have.

 

I think that there is a South Shore Holistic Mothers group...okay found a link. They might be able to hook you up with some to try :)

 

(congratulations!)

Thank you for suggesting the Boston Babywearers. I hadn't heard of it before now and it seems like a great idea.
