Kailyn Lowry Teaches Javi How to Carry Baby Lincoln in a Sling (PHOTO)

Nicole Fabian-Weber Awww!

The Teen Mom star just posted a pic of her teaching Javi how to carry their new baby, Lincoln, in a sling to Instagram -- with a teddy bear as a stand-in! -- and OMG, is it heart-melting! Dads, please take note.

The division of parenting is certainly more even these days, but let's get real here, in the beginning, moms bear the brunt of the work -- especially if they're breastfeeding, like Kailyn is.  Babywearing is the perfect way for dads to take some of the work off of mom's back -- quite literally -- and it's a great way for papas to bond with their infants. (And did I mention that it's hot?)

Kailyn really seems to be going full force with attachment parenting/natural parenting this time 'round. She's tweeted about breastfeeding, eating her placenta, and now babywearing. I think it's fantastic. And I also think it's fantastic that she has the support of her partner.

Thanks for sharing such a sweet pic, Kailyn! And thanks for being such an awesome dad, Javi. You two are pretty adorable parents. Now replace that teddy with a baby!

Did your partner wear your baby? How did he or she help out after baby was born?
