Who is a babywearer???
I already have a Moby wrap, a pouch sling, and a Boba carrier but I seriously think I have an addiction to baby carriers because I want something new for this baby!
What do you baby wear in?
I think I want to get a Solly Baby wrap - really similar to my Moby, but way thinner and more breathable for the hot summer months.
*I had a pouch sling for my DD which she loved, but it got recalled after she was big enough i'd stopped using it so I hesitantly sent it in and the replacement carrier I got is terrible (though my friend really liked it so I gave it to her).
*I bought a Moby to carry DS in which I loved as an infant but he hated to be so confined once he hit about 3 months and I never bothered to try other ways to wear him because I never was a fan of hauling all that fabric around.
*I have a front 2 back carrier that is okay for older babies (took my DD hiking in it a few times) but it hurts my back after a while.
*I have one of those "free" hot slings that I don't care for and haven't used.
So I guess I have an addiction too And I ordered a Mei Tai carrier when I found out I was pg with this baby because I've always wanted one. Ba ha ha!
I have a cuddly wrap. It's an organic version of a moby I think. It's okay, but I find it gets stretched out a little fast when you're using it. I still put DD in it sometimes (up until getting sick) when I know she won't want to walk. I will definitely use it again from day 1 for the new babe. Especially if it's anything like DD and has to be walked in your arms to sleep!! It was a life saver when we finally got it when she was 3 weeks. We will likely be getting a structured one for DH since he prefers that, but didn't like the hand-me-down we got last time. Probably an Ergo or Mei-Tai. But that will be all.
- Peanut Shell sized sling
- Cuddly Wrap (like Moby)
- Ergo - NEW last summer. Never had with DD...so excited!
- Snuggly - Terrible, I know. It was given to us before I knew better!
- Hiking backpack
I didn't wear DD as much as I probably could have...but I plan to wear this one SO much more. I wished I'd had an ergo with DD but we just didn't have the cash. I can't wait to learn to nurse in the Ergo. SO hand for having a busy toddler too!
I bought a new carrier with each kid
I had just the pouch sling with DD. I used it every Sunday at church to get her to sleep, and when we traveled.
I got the Moby when I had DS1 - was so excited for something new! Also I was glad to have something for "bigger babies" because he was NEVER tiny and didn't fit nicely in my pouch for long.
Then I bought the Boba when Ds2 was 5 months old. DH wanted something that HE could wear him in (and no way he was wearing a wrap!) I love my Boba but not for newborns. I still use it a lot with DS2.
I totally think I am justified in getting something new for this baby!
I agree, you should get something new, but what? A Boba is like an Ergo, isn't it?
Yeah, a Boba is similar to an Ergo. I love it.
Since I already have a soft structured carrier I think I want another wrap. I like my Moby wrap but it is bulky and the material is heavy. With a June baby I have a feeling it will be HOT. I am thinking of a woven wrap of some sort - nice and breezy for summer, but nice and cozy for a newborn.
