How long have you been babywearing? 7 years and counting
What are your favorite carriers? After trying almost everything, I've finally determined that wrap conversion Mei Tais are my favorite. But I do love ring slings for quick 'uppas' and wraps when I'm in the mood.
I began babywearing shortly after delivering my first baby. I struggled as a first-time mom with postpartum depression and babywearing gave me something I felt confident in. It allowed me to connect with my high-needs infant and made night-time consoling possible when nothing else worked.
As my daughter grew and I was able to view babywearing as more than an emotional tool, I learned to love how much easier babywearing made life when we were out-and-about. I have enjoyed wearing all three of my children.
Today I continue to wear for many reasons, including connecting after long 60-hour work weeks, accomplishing household tasks, and enjoying time with family.
