Dad Tries to Tie Baby Sling & Makes Fool of Himself (VIDEO)

LOL 29

lauren o'quinn mom vs. man

Do you let your man wear your baby? Wait a minute, let me rephrase that. Do you trust your man to safely wrap up your baby & wear him in a sling?

If your answer is something like, "Yes, of course!", you may change your mind after seeing this new episode of Mom vs. Man on Cafemom Studios. Host Lauren O'Quinn found a dad at the farmer's market who was up for the challenge of trying to successfully wrap up a baby in a sling in 60 seconds or less. He was promised a free drink if he could master the task -- and his attempt was nothing short of hilarious.

Don't worry -- he practiced wrapping a watermelon instead of an actual baby. To see how he did, take a look at the video below.

OMG!! How many times did he drop that watermelon baby? And how about when the thing split it two and started oozing juice?! I don't even want to think about how this guy would've fared with a real baby. And honestly, I think we're all better off not seeing him try.

Does your man know how to wrap up your baby without dropping him?

Tying a baby sling take skills, you should have at least let him look at a manual or diagram to make it fair. Gods know, no mama ever just tries to tie a sling with her baby in it, she stops and figures it out first. Meanwhile, this is why I stick to sling wraps, not ties. Easier on me and my back.

NO ONE can figure those things out without direction. It's a funny video but his lack of skill has nothing to do with being a man.

When I got mine, I looked at it blankly, then watched a YouTube tutorial before I even thought of trying it.

This has NOTHING to do with him being a man. It's still funny, tho.

My SO could not, and neither could I! This is funny, but how silly to get paid to make it a cutesy "do you trust your man" scenario.

We used the "backpack" style ones that could be worn front or back.

Its not like it makes you a bad parent to not be able to tie those crazy things.

heck... i still have trouble with mine!

My husband and I studied the manual and youtube tutorials for a while before using our Moby.

So this is how cafe mom says happy Fathers Day, huh? *eye roll* Moby wraps are hard to figure out even with the instruction book and videos. And you don't actually wrap the baby in them while you're tying it on. So the whole point of this little exercise was what? To make moms feel superior by making fun of this poor guy and implying that dads are bumbling morons? Yeah, that's just what we need--that and more of the "mommy wars" nonsense.

My dh wears our kids all the time.  He was a pro at wrapping our kids about a week after we got our moby.

I agree with the fact that NO ONE can wrap these without direction... I also think she should be wearing her doll facing inward. There is a lot of information on outward facing (crotch dangling) hip displasia in infants.
