For a while now I've only worn DS, 22 months, at my work for an hour each Friday when I need both hands and DS outta trouble. Last week I thought he'd like to sit and watch the entertainment by himself because he's a pretty independent dude- within my sight - while he had a snack. I guess he got engrossed in the tap dancers, lol, realized I wasn't RIGHT there and let out a wail and was attached at the hip the rest of the day.
He was still more clingy this weekend while we were visiting my parents for the weekend and I ended up wearing him in Whole Foods and then on a walk through Ventura. I had a few people ask about the wrap and where I got it, and my husband said that he saw a few people (men) roll their eyes. Now, DS is tiny, only 25 lbs, but he doesn't look like a baby anymore. Truthfully, it made me feel a little self conscious being judged negatively like that - you'd think I'd be over that by now, lol. And my DH is nothing but supportive of BWing etc so it's not him projecting his feelings
Anyone else get grief for wearing their older toddler? Any tips on dealing?
