I have an urge to talk about babywearing. I love wearing Miss E. Just as I knew I would. I have two wraps, well 1.5 as I haven’t finished the second one yet. I made both myself for under $15. No really, I just bought 5 yards of 50/50 linen cotton mix for $30 and will get at least two wraps from that, I got 3 from my stretchy wrap. I love wraps, I love how they distribute babies weight evenly all over my frame, I love how they keep baby pulled snug against me and I love how they look. Best of all I love the price. I also have a ring sling that I bought second hand for $20. I love my wring sling for convince, it lives in my diaper bag and is perfect to sling baby across my hip or chest to chest for a quick run into the mall or grocery store. I don’t fell as 100% confident being totally hands free with the sling as with the wrap though and tend to keep one hand behind her back as much as possible, just kinda patting her bum and reassurance for me. I can however leave her hands free for a few seconds if I need both hands and she is always just fine, so I am sure it’s my own fear in this case. I had a mom made Mei Tai but it wasent comfy for either of us, not padded well compared to a Babyhawk for instance, so I sold that and just won a brand new black organic embroidered Ergo on Ebay for $80 woot, can’t wait to try it out. I feel like my stash is complete now realisticly. In my dream world I would also a Babyhawk with the multicoloured Mexican day of the dead style skulls on it(me and my adoration of skulls) and a rainbow striped woven wrap (mine is natural/light beige coloured).
So all my baby wearing friends, what is your favorite style of carrier and why?
