This used to be a popular refrain with me when I was little. I loved to be carried. I begged to be carried down the hall to bed, on hikes, etc. It’s fun to ride around higher than usual, in the safety of your parents’ arms. Now that I’m carrying our baby around, (at only 5 months) I wonder how my parents had the strength to carry ME when I was 8, 9, 10 and still begging to be carried! Good grief, I probably broke their backs (well, I was a skinny kid).
I love the idea of baby wearing: the convenience of having my hands free, the cuddliness of feeling the baby’s warm body against mine, the safety of having baby near me and not touching germy things in store/public. Okay, and I confess, I love that baby wearing helps me avoid the “can I hold the baby?” dilemma (I still struggle with feeling bad about telling people ‘no,’ even though I don’t believe it’s best for my baby to be passed around a lot at this age).
- First, it’s COMFORTABLE! No buckles to dig at me. And it doesn’t have yards of material so it’s extremely lightweight. The padded shoulder straps are so comfy for me.
- Also, the 3 in 1 design lets you wear the baby facing you, facing out, and on your back. So I’ll be using this carrier for a long time to come!
- I like my khaki/modern print, but I soooo wish they’d had the black/blueberries in stock when I bought mine, because I love that print so much more!
All in all, the Infantino Wrap &Tie is a fabulous baby carrier in and of itself, but I love it even more because it allowed me to carry my baby to my heart’s content!
What is your favorite baby carrier? How long did/do you “baby wear?”
