    Default What did you do today while BWing?

    Come share all the things you do each day while BWing!



    Yesterday I did dishes, made homemade macaroni and cheese, and folded laundry while BWing. I did all of this in mei tais (and I made DH take a few videos that are now up on the All About MT thread!).

    I love this question! My two month old is going through a really clingy phase right now. So, I wore him ALL day today, with the exception of diaper changes and breastfeeding.

    We walked, did dishes, made dinner and I tried to do some typing

    I haven't BW in the past few days. Does having a toddler cling to your leg count? During our vacation, I BW on the NYC subway. Put her right to sleep! I was surprised to see so few parents BWing in NYC. Most chose to stick their kids in strollers covered in little sleeping bag type things. Some even had plastic bags over their strollers! I was appalled. I'd so much rather have my baby snuggled up to me for warmth than covered in plastic. Not to mention how much easier it was to deal with the turnstyles while BWing. We took our umbrella stroller with us one day and I wanted to chuck the thing in front of a train.

    Yeah, stroller + NYC subways = major PITA.

    I haven't BW in a bit either...at 18 months, we really only do it anymore when we go somewhere like an outdoor festival or airport or hiking/walking...someplace she can't (or we don't want her to) walk herself and there are no shopping carts.

    Yesterday I wore Aiden while at Aldi's, the commissary, unloading the groceries from both places, checking the mail, and while doing after dinner dishes (he wouldn't stop chasing the cat!).

    Jasmine, welcome to the board!

    Erin, I hear all the time how hard it is to have a baby in NYC. I have a friend from college who lives there and refuses to have a baby till after they move out of the city because of how "hard" it is dealing with subways, etc. I keep telling her that BWing will solve a lot of those problems, but I don't think she believes me.

    Honestly, that's a big reason we left NYC six years ago. Didn't want to deal with dogs or babies. Just getting groceries or doing your laundry requires carrying huge loads several blocks...wearing a baby would help with some things like negotiating subways, but just add to the weight drama in a lot of other everyday situations. I can understand how babywearing wouldn't sound all that appealing there...even without it, I was already really sick of living like a pack mule. Of course, I also immediately gained 20 pounds upon leaving.

    Oh I have no doubt that it's still hard it's just that she always talks about strollers. I wonder if she's just not ready yet. lol.

    Perhaps that's how I came back from a 2.5 week eating tour weighing 3 lbs less than when I left.

    Suddenly I want to go to NYC! Lots of toddler cuddles from BWing, good food, and for once I might actually lose weight on vacation!

    Yeah...walking everywhere carrying everything does wonders for even the exercise-phobic like me! I swear we walked 20 miles a day the last time we were there. We spent a lot of time (and were staying in) Brooklyn, and getting around within Brooklyn is a pain because all the subways are designed for commuting into and around Manhattan. So we just walked. Everywhere.

    NYC might be annoying to live in for long, but it's definitely a great vacation!
