BABY CARRYING 101

posted by Elshane on Sep 7 2016, under Baby/Motherhood

Although motherhood generally comes with the phenomenal development of a third arm, it's pretty cool to sometimes just be able to use the two you were born with to their fullest extent. Insert need for baby wearing here.

I've been big on testing carriers and wraps since Sunday's birth, and honestly, I've loved everything that I've tried (props to LilleBaby and Solly brands). So I figured the natural next step would be to try the biggest name in baby wearing, BabyBjorn.

I opted for BabyBjorn's Carrier One Air model because I had very specific requirements and this carrier fit the bill. Living in Los Angeles, I needed a carrier that was completely breathable, versatile enough for her to face inside towards my chest, out to the world, or on my back, lightweight, easy to figure out, and super safe for her hips. Oh, and my craving for everything colorful was met since they just introduced this new line of pastels, called the Watercolor Collection!  

I have to say-- this carrier is so user-friendly. Even my husband, who loves the ol' fashion-- who needs a handbook-- method of figuring things out, was able to prove successful in his "wing it" approach. ;) {Of course, I read the entire instructions manual to make sure we were doing everything right, but he doesn't need to know that!}

I chose the carrier in Ice Blue Fish so that it satisfied my craving for color, and yet it was also masculine enough for my husband to feel comfortable wearing it. He's been rocking it on Sundays (with Sunday, ha!) to the local farmer's market. #FAMILY!
