    <p>I ask because my DH <em>refuses </em>to. I have tried countless times to sell him on the perks and benefits (you hold our baby AND have the use of both hands!!) but nope. He won't even try. Just wondering if this is your experience too.</p>
  2. Babywearing
    <p>I have a 7sling that I really really like because it's so useful.  However, if I don't put it on exactly right it gets kind of uncomfortable and I have to take DD out and start over.  I think it's because it's just a really cheap product.  However, now that I've started using pouch slings, I...

    <p>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...

    <p>My 3 wk old is not happy in the wrap or sling. I have tried about 4-5 times and she just doesn't like it. She does not like being squished. I have used 2 kinds of carries for the wrap, a cradle and upright carry and also cradle carry for the ring sling. Not happening. Is there a safe newborn...

    <p>Hi!  I had a Kangaroo Korner pouch sling back in 2009 when my son was born, but lost it on an airplane when he was 5 months old.  Now we are due again in August and realized that the company is out of business!  Is there another pouch sling like that one?  I didn't have the fleece one, just...

    <p>Just wondering if anyone has carried two children and lived to tell about it! I have a three year old and three month old and we like to get out for walks...not many side walks in this neighborhood though so the stroller isn't much fun. I have an ergo for the three year old and either a ring...

    <p>Hello!</p> <p> </p> <p>I've been reading about babywearing and really want to do this with my baby! I'm expecting my first in a couple of months. Where I live most people use strollers or those backpack-style carriers, and I'm not a fan of either. When I looked around for alternatives I was...

    <p>Anyone try these? I just purchased one at target for a whole 12.70 regularly 59.99, just wondering if they are good or not? The reviews on target.com are pretty good. Here's the one i bought: <a...

    <p>I've been doing a lot of researching and, with typical irony, am even more confused than ever about what carrier I'd like to get. I'm on a budget, so the right choice is very important; this will be the only baby carrier I will use for her first six months. I also don't have a baby-related...

    <p>I am trying to find a carrier that my husband can wear comfortably.  He is a very large person, 6'8" and about 450-475 lbs.  He measures about 52-55" from shoulder to waist and then about 58" across going all the way down.  I don't even know where to begin to look.</p> <p> </p> <p>When DS1...

    <p>DH wants something "manly" to wear DD in (he finally saw some guy wearing his baby and talked to him about it...) so I want whats going to be practical for the two of us and that will be able to hold a baby or a heavier kid. Is there a way to get both benefits in one carrier? IDK anyways...
  14. Babywearing
    <p>New baby coming soon (our second) and me and DH are going to try constant baby-wearing (Continuum Concept-style) for the first 6 months. Any recommendations for the best brand for this? I'd like something that distributes the weight on both shoulders, and something that is easy to breastfeed...

    <p>my son haye REALLY wants to be able to wear the baby for short periods of time, maybe a walk around the block or something. he'll be 5 years and 8 months old when the baby comes. we have an ergo and haye is 70 lbs and almost 4 feet tall. i think that physically he would be able to carry the...

    <p>so I said to DH this morning "oh I was online trying to find a masculine sling" and he said "yeah no thanks" I was like why? don't you want to wear DD? He said "no that's for woman" I said plenty of men wear their kids! and he laughed and said well i'm not.</p> <p> </p> <p>so Im kinda...

    <p>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...

    <p>Im wondering if any of you mamas have experience with this carrier, as I know its relatively new.</p> <p> </p> <p>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...

    Hi All,<br><br> My DD is nearly 15 mos old/21 lbs and loooves her old Balboa sling. She has gotten so used to the cradle hold; it is her most comfortable position, except now her big long baby legs are starting to hang over the sides. <img alt="" class="inlineimg"...
