Babywearing

I have a Moby Wrap, a Hotslings, and a BabyTrekker.  Each has its own usefulness, but I could never figure out how to nurse in them.

Lately, as DS become more clingy, I found myself longing a mei tai, because I couldn’t figure out how to do back carry properly in any of my carriers neither.

So I bought myself a Kozy Carrier.  It’s nothing fancy, just a mei tai.  My mom, who only knew mei tai, showed me how to do back carry with it.  My hands are finally free to do chores!

Then I bought a Beco Butterfly 2 in Carnival print.  It’s pretty and comfortable–so much chicer (is that a word?) than the 10-year-old BabyTrekker I received for free.  The downside of the Beco is it becomes personal: I don’t want anyone else to mess with my strap settings.  Everyone else can choose between the Kozy and the BabyTrekker!
