i've had baby wearing on my mind lately as mackenzie grows and we decide if we want to grow our little family and i thought it would be fun to do a roundup of baby carriers available on etsy. i wore mackenzie in a sling starting from when she was a newborn and still do today. we hardly ever used a baby bjorn style carrier as she preferred the sling and i enjoyed being able to breastfeed unnoticed in the sling - yes, you can whip your boob out in all it's glory and nobody can see. trust me, my boob is not a small thing..haha, it's an entity to itself when i am breastfeeding, my girls get huge (i hope some of you can relate)! it was a glorious just to be out and about in a store and breastfeed my child - friggin wonderful!
i swear by baby wearing, it allowed me to do chores, work on the computer, do my hair and a thousand other things i would never have been able to do without my sling. etsy has a wonderful array of different styles, patterns and fabrics as well as a ton of stores willing to do custom work! so stop hauling that babe around and grab yourself a carrier! your boobs will thank you :)
what style carrier to do use? what's your favorite way to wear your baby?
