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 wore my DD in a sling, and at 26 months she still rides on it. However I think we will switch to a wrap!

Of course it's selective memories!  I wear my 10 month old all the time.  And life is tough.  I don't feel blissful walking around.  It's easier when I want to carry her, and it beats dragging around a stroller.  She is starting to want down more than up, and it's nice to watch her get bigger and more independent.  I think we miss the cuddley stage, because once they get mobile, crusing is more fun for them.  My toddler never wants to be worn.  She has to do everything "by self."

I did not wear my daughter. I didn't know about those wraps. We had a carrier but it hurt my back too much. I will be getting a wrap for the new baby. I think it will be easier to wear him/her and take care of my daughter too.

I still wear my toddler, but not as often and there is soemthing different to wearing an infant versus a toddler (at least mine any way).  I miss the whole infant thing once in a while too!

I would wear my 12 month old around, if not for my 9 month pregnant belly :)
We just bought a Sleepy Wrap. I've tried it on with her and I LOVE IT! I just cant wait to wear our newborn around allover the place, all the time! It'll be good for keeping people from touching him too >__>

i still wear my 13 month old! we used to use the moby wrap, but i just got an ergo and i love it (i have chronic back pain, and can still wear her)! roze is right, you can carry up to 90 lbs in the ergo!
