I love to babywear because it is very practical, frees up the parents' hands and allows them to go about their daily life while giving the baby a safe place to cuddle, nurse or nap. With Ella I used my pouch slings and my Mei Tai the most. This time around I am planning on wrapping more just because it is the most comfortable way that I've tried to carry a baby, especially once they are heavier and with a wrap you can wear the baby in countless ways- on your back, your hip, on your front. And then there are variations on all the ways you can wrap the baby in those positions.
Funny enough, yesterday the kids and I met Bob at the Cracker Barrel for dinner because he had class and that would be his only time to quickly see the kids. I wore Gabriel in my Hotsling and I had at least five people come up to me asking me what he was in. My waitress was excited to see one in person since she had just seen an E! special about hot trends with celebrities and baby carriers were on the countdown. I had no idea that I was fashion forward for once!
