Baby Wearing 👶🏽

When our daughter was born I had a baby carrier and it was so uncomfortable. I never used it. If we try for #2 I really want to use one. What is your favorite? What are the best brands? Do I get a sling, a wrap, a carrier? Help! (And can I look as cute as the Mama in the pic?? Lol)

Not sure if someone already wrote this above but there is a group called Bay Area Babywearing that has meetings all over the Bay Area that help you with different carriers and what is the best for you. It’s free to attend but if you join, you can check out a different carrier each month to try them so you can find out what works best for you before you buy. It’s a great resource! PM me if you have questions

I used a Moby wrap, Baby K’tan, the classic Ergobaby, and the Ergobaby Omni 360. The Moby wrap and Baby K’tan are similar; they’re soft and easy to wear even when you are sitting down; the Baby K’tan is easier to put on, but the Moby wrap takes on a perfect custom fit. The Ergobaby distributes the weight so much better and is super easy to take on and off. Once my little got heavy, I switched to Ergobaby because its structure keeps my back from hurting too quickly. The benefit to the Ergobaby Omni 360 is the option to wear the baby facing out. If I had to do it all over again, I’d use the Baby K’tan for flights and the Ergobaby for most daily use.

I have a cuddly wrap for newborn/younger baby (under 5 months) and an ergo baby 360 for older. I love both. I got a Sakura bloom from same shop I got the others for my new baby coming in January. I used it a few times with my toddler and she liked it but she was pretty heavy so it wasn’t that comfortable for me.

So my chiropractor told me it’s really bad for the baby to carry it using a carrier, like the ones where the legs are hanging. It puts all the pressure and weight onto their hips which is not good and could lead to multiple complications in the long run. She says the better option is to swaddle it on you. As long as the baby is tucked in and not putting all it’s weight on the hips. Like the picture you posted is just perfect.

You shouldn’t wear a baby carrier like ergo baby unless it has an infant insert, otherwise the risks for hip dysplasia increase. For the first few months I had a wrap (boba I believe it’s the name). It was veeeeery hot inside so my baby was always naked while I was wearing lol but I had him on summer time so the weather didn’t help. Now that he’s older and doesn’t stay like a little frog inside the ergo baby plus his face goes over the carrier and it’s not stuck inside, I’m wearing the ergo baby and loves it. It’s expensive but it’s very worth it!
