makin'it in the mommyhood - drool catchers

are you a baby wearer? do you carry your wee one in a baby carrier that's got straps within chewing reach of your baby? does that baby drool a lot and i mean a lot? i got super excited when i spotted a tutorial the other week for drool catchers from lu bird baby for my ergo baby carrier.

i quickly grabbed some fabric leftover from mackenzie's new backpack and whipped those drool catchers up. now instead of chewing on the hard, black straps, harper can suck to her heart's content on some pretty fabric and ribbon. it's soft, absorbent and she just leaves to touch it. i also think it just adds some personality to my carrier. a little pizazz. the tutorial is easy to follow and it's a great project for an newbie sewer.

i like to use my ergo when i'm out and about town. i pretty much wear harper whenever we are out and i like to rotate between my sling and my ergo. i love both and i'm a big advocate of baby wearing. i couldn't imagine not wearing either of my kids, there's just something special about having them close and seeing the world through their eyes.

do you have a drooling baby that could use some drool catchers? do you baby wear? what's your fave carrier?
