  1. Birth Stories
    This is pretty long, but I'm proud of it! After having my first daughter in a hospital with pitocin and an epidural, I knew I wanted something different. This was it! Madelynn's Birth Story Sunday, July 31st My due date was August 2nd, and since I was induced at 41 weeks 2 days with Caroline...
  2. New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone! Katie from Beco here. Working on getting my account all set up and my siggy created, so expect to see that and my avi change shortly, too. VERY excited about sharing with you all and getting to know this community better. I'm not sure how Mothering (the magazine) was introduced to...
  3. Babywearing
    I have 2 pouches, a ring sling, a mei tai and a wrap. I like them all for different situations but there are also drawbacks to each one. What I need is a carrier that I can easily and discreetly nurse in hands free while grocery shopping. I can do that with my ring sling but my back starts to...
  4. Babywearing
    I have an Ergo, DD has outgrown her K'Tan (she's 24 lbs and 16 mos). I am in the process of buying a Maya Wrap for her and I'd like a Mei Tai. What brands do you recommend? We love our Ergo, but I'd like some more options.
  5. Babywearing
    Carrying my baby on the front hurts my back so badly. I have tried pouches, carriers, wraps, mei-tais... I am about to commission a ring sling so that he is at least more toward my side, but when can I backpack him? I think this would help, as it would alter the center of gravity for his weight.
  6. Babywearing
    I was trying to decide between the new performance Ergo and the Beco Butterfly 2 when I stumbled across a Beco Butterfly 2 on clearance for 50% off (the store was closing). Well, since $70 in savings is nothing to shake a stick at, I snapped it up. Now I'm home and trying to fit the Beco to...
  7. Babywearing
    Okay - AP is new to me within the last year (beginning of pregnancy with DD). I wore DS (33 mo) a bit as a baby but more out of practicality than having any clue about the benefits of babywearing. I had a Snugli (I know everybody hates these!) for him, and I kept it for DD. I realized through...

    Does anyone have any recomendationds for a good back carrier ? Have you had better experiances with a frame carrier or a soft carrier? I have Lupus and scoliosis, so that makes wearing any type of carrier hard. DH will be the main one wearing it. We are both small people ( 5'4" and 5'3"). Would...

  10. Babywearing
    I wear my 3 month old for almost all of his 3 naps a day (in a beco carrier). I'm wondering what issues I am setting myself up for in the future and possible solutions, now or in the future. I find it so easy to use the beco as a nap place so I can go outside and play with my older kid (2 1/2...
  11. Babywearing
    I have a Beco butterfly (the one where the child can't face outward) and would like to expand my carrier collection. I have credit at babiesrus and they sell an infantino Mai Tei. Is it too similar to the Beco to be worth it? My ds is 3 months old and we wear her for most of her naps and when we...

    I have a nice Moby but I don't how much longer it will be comfy for us. I'm looking on CL for a new carrier. I've worn an Ergo before as a nanny with a little baby and really liked it. My son is 3 months and 15 pounds. The Ergo goes up to 40 pounds so that's a good choice for weight. The Ergo...
  13. Babywearing
    I use the Beco for outings with my 3 week old. The weather is cold so she is usually bundled up when we use the Beco. She likes the tummy to tummy position with her legs scrunched up (like she is in a swaddle). At home when we are inside, I find the Beco to be a bit too much. I'd love the...
  14. Babywearing
    My daughter is 3 weeks old. We use the Beco Butterfly to carry her outside but she is usually bundled up for the cold weather which she seems to find cozy. She loves to be held when we are at home, but I could use the free hands to get things done...you know like eating! :) I've tried...

    Hi, I'm having my first in April and am trying to figure out all the carrier options. At first I was sure I wanted a structure carrier, but I was just looking at the Kozy site and think they look cool. Anyway, here's my question: with carriers that you tie on, especially since I would think...
  16. Babywearing
    I am struggling with this and could use some tips! We live in the city so we walk everywhere. But we have some issues: He's a toddler, so he wants to get down when we get to our destination. His coat and my coat are bulky and slippery. If we take the bus it gets sooo hot! Which carrier works...
  17. Babywearing
    This is for a friend, I'm just not sure what to recommend. Right now she has a strechy wrap, not quite as stretchy as the moby. She is short and short waisted. Her baby is about 5 months old, over 20 lbs and long. I think she needs something that goes over both shoulders and she would prefer to...

    Im wondering if any of you mamas have experience with this carrier, as I know its relatively new. Ive been thinking about getting a Butterfly II, but was drawn towards the Gemini for the wider variety of carries it can offer. Aside from this, the biggest difference that Im noticing is that it...

    I'm new to babywearing and need a little help, DD is 3 months old and weighs about 12 pounds. I'm 5'8 about 155 pds. I would like a baby carrier that I can use now and up until shes about 2 years old or so. Any suggestions?? I'd appreciate it! Thanks
