My Babywearing Love Affair Will Continue

One of my all time favorite things about having a newborn/baby in the house is being able babywear. I love how baby wearing makes bonding so seamless, being able to be super close to him/her during the day for hours on end. People who say that you can “hold a baby too much”, sorry, but this babywearing mama completely disagrees.

As a busy mom to three other little ones, I love how simple and easy babywearing can make my hectic life.

I’m often asked by new and expecting moms which carriers I love the best. Such a loaded question, I adore so many of them for different reasons.

Because this week is International Babywearing Week, I thought it would be an appropriate time to share with you some of my carriers and why I love them.

Looking through these photos my myself wearing my other children, gets me so excited to do it all over again!

The Collection (through the years):

  • Ergo Carrier 1 of 9
    Ergo Carrier
    I never thought I would like the "structure" of the Ergo, but it's quickly become my go-to carrier, especially as my babies become heavier.

    I love Mod Mum pouches because they are easy to use, and the price, at $35(ish), is right.

    Mei Tai carriers are carriers with straps that you tie in the back. My favorite brand of Mei Tai carrier is a BabyHawk. Pictured above is a Mei Tai carrier I bought off Etsy.
