  • Because it's the easiest way to cart her around doing the things I like to do. ;)

     Seriously, it's just easier.  Shopping without a stroller, hiking on rough terrain, walking the dogs, everything is just easier with both hands free and

  • I wear my baby because   ...the groceries need a place in the cart.  ...it keeps people from touching him.  ...he sleeps instead of crying.  ...it's good for milk supply and keeping away the return of the dreaded period.

  • Because one day she will be an independent well rounded teen who thinks I am a little lame and a bit uncool so I will take all the cuddly bonding time I can get! And it makes her happy when she can interact with me at the same eye level now that she is cu

  • Because I only have two arms, but way more responsibilities than snuggling my newborn all day... as much as I wish that weren't the case! ;)

  • So I can feel smug!

    Ha ha. The arm thing, 100%. Loved being able to use my hands whilst holding a baby/toddler.

  • I wear my baby because it's easier to put him in the carrier, than it is to get the stroller out. Plus I need a hand free to walk the dogs.

    And it's damn near impossible to hold a wiggly 21 lb baby.

  • I wear my baby because a stroller is way too big and bulky and she always fits so nicely tucked in next to me.  I wear my baby because she isn't walking and this lets me hands free so she can still be with me.  I wear my baby because she loves b

  • I wear my baby because it's the closest I can possibly get her to my body! I love to snuggle her every moment I can, and babywearing makes it so that I can cuddle and get stuff done.

  • I wear DD because I am a lazy parent looking for the easiest solution that keeps mama and baby happy while I get things done :)

    The snuggles aren't bad either.

  • Because...
    1) she likes it
    2) it keeps my hands free
    3) it helps keep my milk supply up and the period away
    4) it makes for a generally more content and confident baby, even when she's out of my care
    5) it b

  • I originally chose to wear my baby while I was pregnant with my first and noticed so many new moms lugging babies around in the infant car seats, always looked way too bulky and heavy. This was 6 years ago and not many people used the wraps or mobys ye

  • It keeps him out of trouble when we're in shops (and wineries) on vacation that he will destroy if I let him put his feet on the ground.
