I Miss Wearing My Babies Sometimes

sling, baby,

I wore my babies in a sling fairly often when they were new.

And, some days, particularly when I see an infant snuggled up in a sling, I miss wearing my little infants around.

This past weekend at the BlogHer Conference in Chicago, there were tons of moms attending and wearing their babies to and fro. It made me miss wearing my babies around.

Those adorable little bundles. Sleeping and sweet. Not a care in the world...

What's that you say? That I have selective memory? That there was some crying and fussing and diaper changing and extreme hunger in there somewhere?

Oh, I remember. Don't worry. I remember well. However, there is something about those days I wore my baby boys close to me in the sling that brings a smile to my face and will always make me miss my kids when they were small enough to carry around with me.

Do you wear your baby in a sling or another baby carrier? How often?

i love my sling, but now my little ones are just too independent and want to walk on their own. :(

My DS is almost 9 months and hates the stroller. I bought an expensive double, when I should have just bought more slings. I have a mai tai and love it.

Caleb never wanted to be worn. We did'nt have the money to try a lot of different slings like i know some mom's do. I was always sad that he hated to be worn. I'm a stroller mom.

I did wear my DD when she was a baby the wrap till she was 8 months old but then she got WAY too heavy and I have to quit using it. And with my DS on my baby shower I recieve 5 wraps and when I was about to use them with my baby boy we found out that my DH cousin's baby fell from one of those so my hubby freak out and prohib me from using one of those with our son.

One of my all time favorite things to do is wear my baby.  She is now 8 months old.  We just have an old Snuggly and i really hope she doesn't outgreow it soon because I love having her snuggled up close to me.  I have been wanting an ErgoBaby carrier but they are just too expensive.

Sometimes I missed it too, but now I have my second baby so I am always wearing him :)

I have something similar to a Baby Bjorn, and I am still able to "wear" my 18.5 pound 13 month old.  I have no plans to stop anytime soon.  It's so much easier than worrying about strollers, and my daughter loves being close to me.

Heck I still wear my toddler who is almost 2 years old and is 30lbs around, so don't worry - if you miss it so much then get an older child carrier!

I wear my baby in a Moby Wrap.....  I highly recommend them to anyone!  They are fantastic .... they allow you to do things hands free and they keep your baby snuggly close to you.  There are different wraps/positions to use so you can even breastfeed while wearing baby.  They are available in UV protection fabric as well!
