Baby Wearing while pregnant

Hello!

What kind of wrap/carrier is good when pregnant? I'm talking 7-9 mo when you are already large and heavy.

I was thing a ring sling type, so I can hip carry my toddler. But would it put a lot of pressure on my hips? Or a mei tai or something you can backpack the toddler in.

There's prob several options I haven't thought about yet, so I'd love to hear them.

Thanks!

  • Oh I'll hafta look that up! Thanks
  • I saw a back carry in a mei tai the other day that had the straps above/below belly but not on. I think the tie off was called "Joy's ruckless butterfly"? Maybe?

    Otherwise, a ruck tied under bum would work. Or maybe a secure high back carry (SHBC) and tie off in front under your belly?

  • Thanks @pixieprincss‌! Great articles.
  • I have a woven wrap ( size 6) and my fav carry to do while pregnant is a double hammock back carry with a candy cane chest belt :) it ties up high, so it's not putting pressure on your tummy, and the candy cane chest belt help take away the strain in your shoulders :)
