Babywearing is one of the things that has made my parenting life so much easier and more pleasant. We started off with a pouch style sling when Bean was a baby. From about 6 weeks on she lived in the pouch and loved it!
Even Daddy wore the kids sometimes!
Then we got an Ergo, which we all loved! However, I can’t find a single picture of any of us in it. However, it was truly worth the investment, and we used it tons. I sometimes used the Ergo as a front pack with the Bean on my back as well.
Then I’ve got my water pouch, which I love and don’t use nearly as much as I wish I did. It seems we don’t do a lot of swimming.
The wrap is my truly hands free option. It helps me to get done what I need to get done in a day with 3 little ones. It keeps Squeaker happy hanging out snugly. In fact, he gets so excited when he sees me get it out that he waves his little arms and legs and coos and laughs. He loves it, as the Bug would say. And so do we all. Even my mom commented to someone one time while waiting for me to wrap him up, “It takes a while to get him in there, but it really is the best way to carry a baby.” Proof that everybody loves a ride!
