If this carrier could talk…

It rarely comes into the house, and lives on the messy floor of my car. I imagine it discussing with it’s friends (half filled sippy cups, picnic blankets covered in grass clippings, stray overdue library books) what the excursion of the day might be.

Although it’s haphazardly thrown about, it knows how special it is.  If this carrier could talk, oh the stories of adventure it would tell.

And everywhere (everyday) in between

Done correctly, babywearing is safe.  The CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) going after all slings, pouches, mei tais, etc.  My personal opinion is that I could not be the mom that I am, without the aid of carriers.

If babywearing has been a blessing for you, now is the time to use your voice.  Write a post, share a favorite picture. Link up over at Steph’s, an be a part of the movement.

*that carrier up above? It’s an Ergo.  I knew you would want to know…

  6. Oh blah! Rrrrealy? come on! I LOVED the sling. I can only imagine the craze of the media going forward–always looking at the down side & telling scary tales of what could happen if you are an idiot. I support you in standing up for a good thing.
    Gage is so cute I can hardly stand it. Love the pictures.
    eyes. eyes. eyes. soooooooooooo cute!

  8. Couldn’t agree more to your comment. Babywearing daddies=totally hot. I love the pic where he’s looking directly up at you, and you down at him. I’ve got to try that angle sometime. So cute.

  9. SO true! I brought the Ergo in the other day from the van to wash it because someone had spilled koolaid on it. Days before.

    And thank you for your sweet comment! You and your little one are absolutely adorable too!

  10. Oh Emily, such beautiful pictures of you two! I also have one that travels with me in my car, just in case. I love how they use it as a chew-toy, don’t you? LOL

  11. dude, now i have the old if these walls could speak amy grant song in my head. (please tell me you know which one i mean). i have made so many treks to the car in the freezing cold because i left the carrier in there and i need it the next morning. my angelpack (it is very similar to the ergo) has seen everything too. i think i used it almost every day for about a year with alice.

  12. Gorgeous pictures! No accident, I’m guessing, that the carrier matches your little one’s eyes!

  13. I’m over here laughing at you describe it on the floor of the car. That’s where my two live when not being used! Right below baby’s car seat – ha! Love that you have so many great baby wearing photos. :)

  14. Aw, gee. This post made me teary-eyed. My boobs are also sore, and I’m overly emotional. I really really really hope it’s my period. ANYWAY. I loved wearing my baby, my second son. I didn’t do it often enough with my first baby, but with my second, all the time. I LOVED it. And of course it’s safe.

  15. Babywearing is definitely a blessing for me. Parenting would be so much harder without a carrier. In truth, I can hardly imagine it.

  16. Love this post! We have an ergo too and love it. I can’t imagine how different are adventures would be without it :)

  17. man, my carriers have seen some hard times, but they are by far one of my most necessary baby items. forget diaper genies (i don’t even know what these are, lol) and buttpaste … bring me my beco butterfly or ergo or wraps, and i’m good to go!

  18. I received my first loan when I was a teenager and that aided my family a lot. Nevertheless, I need the secured loan also.
