Baby Wearing with Boba

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Boba. The opinions and text are all mine.

You probably know I had a baby in May. {a girl!! yay!} I did a lot of baby wearing with her in the first 4 months and I loved it! And she loved it too. This was an instagram pic I shared shortly after she was born. 

Baby wearing made my life so much easier. I’d tuck in her close to me and then go about my day chasing her 2 older brothers around. She snoozed on me and took most of her daytime naps on me. I was able to take the boys to the park without having to transport her to a stroller or fret about waking her up. I’d simply walk out the door  with the boys on their scooters or bikes and we’d walk to the park. I felt it made my transition to 3 kids a lot smoother.

Now I did try to baby wear with my first with a homemade carrier. But he didn’t like it and I felt he wasn’t very secure in it and the support for his head wasn’t very good. So that lasted all of 2 days. I didn’t even try baby wearing with my second baby. But after reading up on baby wearing and talking to other moms, I made the decision to purchase an inward facing carrier and give baby wearing another shot with my third baby. And I’m really glad I did. I love looking down at her sweet face as I’m going about my day. And I love how whenever I pick up and hold her close, she is instantly comforted. My boys were not that way.

I’ll admit, I don’t wear her much anymore now that she is 6 months old and wants to explore. But those first 4 months, she was in her carrier most of the day.

I prefer inward facing carriers. I feel like its a more natural position and it is how I would hold her without a carrier. Plus inward facing carriers support the upper legs to support proper hip developmentThumb_33f0df08-5208-11e3-b7e4-22000af93a2d
