Hands Free Baby Wearing

I vowed to follow attachment parenting and baby wearing. At first it was so easy. I never wanted to put my little one down. But by the second month, too many things had piled up that I just couldn’t do one-handed. Once Luna could hold her head up, she was happy to come along on whatever mission I was tackling, but as she gets heavier, it’s hard to hold her and feed the dogs, or fold the laundry, etc.

I purchased The Blue Celery carrier before she was born and was then gifted a few other carriers including an Ergo. When she was really little, I liked the Blue Celery because the fabric is soft and stretchy. When she was about a week old, I used it to keep her attached to me while I ate. At three weeks it was our favorite beach walk carrier. baby carry

 

By 5 weeks old, I switched over to a carrier that my sister gave me because it seemed to hold her more upright and had a long piece that could be used as a sun shade.

One thought on “Hands Free Baby Wearing”

  1. Hi I saw your video and blog post, your bubs looks adorable and i’m so glad you’re enjoying finally being hands free 🙂 I just wanted to say to you that outward facing isn’t massively reccomended as it doesn’t support bubs legs, pelvis and spine as well. I have a tutorial on my blog that i’ve not long posted on how to tie a strechy wrap if you wanted to take a look 🙂 and information on how to support their little joints properly. I hope this helps, and good luck on your babywearing journey! 🙂 xx
