  1. Babywearing
    Hi, everyone! I'm expecting a baby girl in November. I turned down an incredible job (working on a political campaign in leadership) so that I can be home with my girl, make her comfortable, form trustful bonds, and otherwise help start her transition from being a "scared newborn" into...

    <p>So far in my baby wearing collection I have a 5.6 meter woven wrap</p> <p> </p> <p><a href="http://www.shantybaby.net/woven-wraps---page-2.html" target="_blank">http://www.shantybaby.net/woven-wraps---page-2.html</a></p> <p> </p> <p>and hand me down "sling' that kind of looks like this (not...

    This is the first baby I've worn, and we are loving it. She outgrew the Maya at 12 w, and has been in a gorgeous baby hawk ever since. She is 6 mos and about 16 lbs now. It's comfy and perfect except for one thing. To take her out is easy, but to put her back in means I have to untie the knot...

    <p>I'm transitioning my 6 month old from Moby to ....yes, that's the question. DD  was a ring-sling hip carry girl. She hated being on my back, and was content to watch everything I was doing, and I just put her behind my arm when I needed to do something and be sure she couldn't touch it.  DS...

    <p>My primary question is: do you anchor and tie the wrap above or below the belly?  What have you found to be the most comfortable for back carrying toddlers while pregnant?  The Ergo is no longer working for us for a variety of reasons, so I am wanting to try a wrap.</p> <p> </p> <p>Thanks!</p>

    Hi all,<br><br> DS is 13 weeks and about 15 pounds. I'm wondering when we can put his legs out in the Ergo. We stopped using the infant insert because it made him scream like a banshee and he has pretty good head control. If I wear him in the Ergo with his legs out, he doesn't fuss, but when DH...

    <p>Hi there. I just started trying my Patapum Baby Carrier (a near twin to the Ergo, I'm told) with my 16-lb, 5-month-old DD. Since most of what I've seen online are raves about its comfort, I'm surprised that I don't find it very comfortable. I haven't put her in a back carry yet, but in the...

    My 9yo daughter is forever carrying around her 17mo baby brother, even though I remind her she doesn't have to. She's requested her own carrier so she can occasionally wear him on her back (with me monitoring and limiting it so she doesn't overextend her growing body or fall and injure them...

    <p>I just did a consignment sale of all our plastic toys and now have some extra money (as well as a nicer home <span id="user_yui_3_3_0_8_131388641236915"><img alt="winky.gif" id="user_yui_3_3_0_8_131388641236914" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif"></span> )</p> <p> </p>...

    Hi! I wore my first son and he has never taken to a stroller except for long distances (which is when it's more useful anyway) honestly I've used my strollers around a dozen times since he was born. However now that he's 2 1/2 he's getting heavier to carry. So it's making me wonder about how it...
  11. Babywearing
    <p>I have a 20 month old, and she loves to be worn on my back, but the part of her chubby thighs that sit on the seat get angry welts on them because her legs dangle. It bothers her and she signs and says owie after I take her out. Anyone experience this? Anything I can do to fix this? Is there...
  12. Babywearing
    <p>I have a Moby and a Maya ring sling. My 7 week old pushes her head out but she doesn't have full head control yet. I end up holding her head with one hand which makes it impossible to do anything with two hands. If she is asleep she will lay against me. Am I wrapping her wrong? Is there a...
  13. Babywearing
    <p>Hi,</p> <p>My baby is almost 5 weeks old now, and probably close to 10 lbs. I've been using the Ergo, without the insert, for short periods. He loves it, and usually goes to sleep. I wear it a little high, and froggy his legs in. His head is supported by the back of it, and I don't do...

    <p>Just a vent really.</p> <p> </p> <p>I saw some really reasonable ergo's on eBay and figured i'd buy one for DD2's first birthday (we have a stretchy wrap, a ring-wrap, a mei-tai and a ringsling all homemade but DP isn't keen on any of them as he worries he's going to "do it wrong" and drop...

    <p>Hi - DH and I have three boys, ages 9, 7 and 3.5. We like to do a lot of walking and hiking. Lately we've been doing moderate hikes in the 3 to 4 mile range. The older kids can manage the entire walk at a good pace, but of course the 3.5 yo cannot.</p> <p> </p> <p>DH has been carrying him on...

    <p>My babe is killing my back. I've been a huge fan of my Babyhawk since DD1 was a little one and have been carrying the current DD (9 months) in it since she was just a few days old. However, this one has a really bad habit that her sis didn't when she's on my back: she pulls her arms out of...

    <p>I was given my Moby when my son was 3 weeks old and we loved it! Now he's 3 months and much bigger at 15 pounds and we sometimes don't feel comfortable in it now. He's often to low or to high and we struggle to get the right fit sometimes. Also one of his little legs comes out  and gets cold...

    <p>Hi Mamas,</p> <p> </p> <p>My little one is 7 months old and loves to be worn. Our two favorite carriers are the Ergo and the Bjorn and she'll hang out in either for hours. I love babywearing too and am rarely happier than when we're out and about snuggling. I never thought anyone could ever...
  20. Babywearing
    <p>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...
