Howdy All!

DH and I are going to Morocco this summer. I'd like DH to share the babywearing with me. I feel much safer with DS close to me in those crowded market streets! Anways, can anyone recommend a carrier that is a bit, umm, *cough* 'manly'? DH has used a baby bjorn type front carrier before, but DS is too big for it now.

TIA

Our sling and pouches are too "feminine" for him. That could be just my DH's hang-ups, though! LOL!


No, our DHs share hang-ups.


Although DH will use a front carry, but only if it's the kind of carrier that doesn't look ANYTHING like a 'traditional' carrier (read 'the kind of carrier used by villiage women in his country'). It has to be a 'I'm a modern manly-man' kinda carrier.

Ok, so far I've been thinking about the Ergo (but still keeping the HOT weather in Morocco in mind). I went to Peppermint but the discontinued the Ergo. SO I'm still looking around! BTW, the picture of Mrzmeg's DH is too great! I think my DH wouldn't mind an Ergo.

Thanks so much, mamas, for the replies. Keep em coming! The more input, the better! DH and I are both grad students, so believe it or not buying a new carrier is a big investment (that's dipping into our vacation money)
So I really appreciate all the help.

Ok, I just looked at the Kozy. I love it! But there seems to be a month long wait for new orders???

I wish I could sew. I have a machine, but no time or talent! Thanks for the thought, though!
