My favorite things about babywearing are having my little ones close to me, and having my hands free to do other things(cleaning, shopping, holding another kid’s hand, etc.)

I love that I can instantly be there for my child if she needs anything and that she feels safe being right next to her mommy.

I’m desperate for a carrier that will help support my back!! I have a moby already and I love it. But I also want another that I can easily just put my son into quickly when he’s screaming and have us both be comfortable.

I love babywearing! I always feel so close with my son and he is so comfortable. I am looking forward to wearing baby #2 that is due in November! I think all of the carriers look wonderful – especially the Beco and Boba. I really like that you don’t need any extra inserts with the Boba for a newborn.

Honestly, I’m excited about all of these carriers! I love babywearing because it comforts your baby, it allows them to feel close to you and secure. I also love it because I can hold my baby AND still accomplish what I need to do!!

I’ve not had luck with baby wearing – my back hasn’t held up to anything. I’ve been told the Beco Gemini might be a good option for me, but I’m afraid to spend money on trying one out :|
This would be an AWESOME way for me to try!

I would love a carrier-we are expecting our first baby in November and I have back problems so carrying them in a wrap, or carrier–is much easier on my back then trying to hold them with my arms all the time. My sister wears her baby and has let me wear him and it is much more convenient for me and much more comfortable for baby! He falls asleep every time :)

22 Amy August 3, 2012 at 6:43 pm

I honestly would love any of these wraps/carriers! I didn’t have one with my first little one and would LOVE to have one for my new baby come October. I don’t know that I’ll be able to afford one otherwise : (

I really like the boba carrier

I love baby wearing because it makes chasing a toddler so much simpler when you can just strap the baby too you. And baby is just soo cute all snuggled up asleep. It takes about 60 seconds for my 3 month old to crash.

I love have my toddler close to me and that we can go and do things without worrying about if the stroller can make it or not.

Babywearing has saved my sanity when I’ve had to get laundry done, or vacuum! And I love the way my baby looks at me while I’m wearing him! Unfortunately he’s outgrowing the carrier we have. :\

I’m probably most excited about the Boba 3G, but they all look so fantastic!!
