I’m not sure what is going on with the baby today, but he does not want to be in his crib. He doesn’t want to lie down. He doesn’t want a bottle. He doesn’t want food. He seems to want to be held …. but I have things to do.
We’ve used everything from a no-sew homemade rebozo wrap to structured carriers that are like backpacks to mei-tei type wraps. He just found an Infantino EcoSash at the swap meet for $5 so we decided to try it out. It said that we could wear the baby front-facing, chest-facing or on our backs. Today is the day I decided to try out wearing him on my back.
It was a success.
I was able to wash some bottles and get some things packed. I can’t remember exactly where I came across the idea that Americans could babywear, but a big “thank you” goes to whomever!
Do you babywear? What’s your favorite carrier?
