The Best Thing I Ever Did...

Babywearing...

It's International Babywearing Week, September 21-28 and I'm a "babywearer" [well, PreKwearer now days...]

Harrison was fussy those first few weeks of life and wanted to held - all. the. time. the first few months; baby carriers resolved the issue and met both our needs. I could hold him and give him the closeness he wanted plus get things done. He is now a VERY confident, happy, outgoing four-year-old. I still use my Mei Tai occasionally because it works for both of us - he snuggles into my shoulders and relaxes and I can get someplace quickly and easily without a bulky stroller; like at over crowded concert at the park series in the summer.

From this (I know - not a great picture)


To this...

Our wearing days are almost done.

Saddness.

Looking at him, I'd say that the carrier isn't the best thing you've EVER done.... I suspect that HE is. Nice work.

I love wearing my baby! We haven't tried it on my back yet though. Cute pics!

Three cheers for baby wearing. I haven't graduated to the piggyback style (or not yet), as my boy is in the put-me-down-so-I-can-RUN stage. But seeing you with yours is pretty motivating!

I never wore any of my kids - I tried a couple of different slings and they were all uncomfortable
