If you're currently pondering the benefits of babywearing and wondering if a sling is the right thing for your family, watching the following video may just seal the deal for you. After seeing it, you may feel compelled to run, not walk, to your local baby store and register for one or just scoop one up then and there.
In the video, this subtly sexy Norwegian guy gives a demonstration on how to wear a baby sling. Without any words, he shows how to do it step-by-step from start to finish. It's actually as useful as it is entertaining to watch.
See what I mean? Totally hot and totally informative all in one video. And then there's the baby. If you don't melt when he kisses that baby, then I don't want to know what it takes to move you. It's sort of like a modern-day version of the iconic "L'Enfant" poster by Spender Rowell. As cheesy as it may be, there's just something about a man with a baby, and babywearing ups the game.
It's not fair I suppose that a woman donning a baby sling is just a woman donning a baby sling, while this guy doing is beyond hot. But it is, and, honestly, if it encourages more men to wear babies, then so be it. I think baby slings can often be intimidating to men, so seeing another dad do it so well will hopefully help some of them embrace the practice. Maybe this dude can do one on diaper changing next?
So if you're looking for a gift for the daddy-to-be this holiday season, this is one that will be enjoyed not just by him, but by the baby and mama as well.
Does your man do any babywearing? Does this make you want him to?
