Suggestions please ^_^ [Jan. 9th, 2008|10:21 am]
Wearing your baby/toddler

Okay. I'm going camping at the end of June. At that point my son will be 18 months old, he's about 21 pounds right now. We will be doing some hiking so I would like to hear suggestions from everybody as to what kind of carrier or sling I should get.
I have the ultimate baby wrap and I love it. I just haven't used it since he before he started walking since I haven't had a reason to. I'm not sure how well it will perform under the conditinos.
Of course it will be summer so I would like something that will not bake me under the hot sun, flexible so I can use on the front or on the back, and something comfortable for both of us. Most importantly needs to hold a 1-2 year old.
Please comment with suggestions and links if you know of any! I really do appreciate it. Money is not too much of an issue seeing as how I have a few months to save up.
Thanks guys ^_^

babywearing research [Nov. 6th, 2007|05:28 pm]
Wearing your baby/toddler
youwontremember
Hello ladies, as some of you might already know I am a senior Cultural Anthropology student at Temple University in Philadelphia and I’m currently interested in studying/researching the ancient practice of babywearing. If at all possible and if any of you have time to write me up a little bio of yourselves and babywearing. I’ve written some questions that might spark up your memories but feel free to write as much or as little as you’d like. As I’ve come to find out many parents believe babywearing to be the ultimate way to bring up a baby. Although this practice isn’t as widely accepted as I previously thought there is a definite following. I’ve written a few questions that might help to bring up some memories of your first days of babywearing.

When did you first hear or see babywearers?
How do you think your parenting techniques differ from the techniques of your stroller using parents?
What are some obvious benefits to the baby?
Would you consider yourself to practice attachment parenting?
How much research have you done on your own previously to babywearing?
Why do you think some new parents might feel intimidated by babywearing?
How do family members or random people on the street look at you while babywearing?
Have you tried all different kinds of slings and wraps? Have you found that different wraps/slings work best for differently for babies of different size?
If you have other children, have you always used baby slings? How does currently using a sling help with daily activities?
Does the baby’s father carry the baby in a sling? How does he feel as far as it not being “masculine” enough? Comments from other dads?
What are some of the first memories of babywearing…such as the first time going out shopping, walking around the city, etc?

Please e-mail responses to TUA57726@temple.edu And if anyone is from the Philadelphia area it would be even more helpful. THANK YOU!!

light weight wrap [Jun. 29th, 2007|01:42 pm]
Wearing your baby/toddler

mybabythoughts
Anyone have a suggestion about a place where I can either purchase a ready-made wrap (like Moby or something), or a type of material I can use to make a wrap that is really light weight and stretchy? I need something that is even lighter than terry or t-shirt material. I need something that is maybe mesh? My baby gets so freaking hot in my normal Moby wrap.

Thanks in advance :)

Suggestions Needed [Apr. 17th, 2007|09:36 pm]
Wearing your baby/toddler

I am in need of suggestions for a sling or baby carrier to wear my son. We have used the Native sling (I think that is the name), tried a ring sling and now an Ergo. The Native sling (on loan from a friend) worked well for the first 2-4 weeks, the ring sling lasted about 2-4 weeks comfortably and then I couldn't seem to work it as my son got bigger. I never felt that I had good back support with the ring sling and the babe seemed uncomfortable as he got bigger. Now I'm trying the Ergo (mind you I returned the ring sling to cover some of the cost of the Ergo) and he doesn't seem to like it, but I'm not sure if I'm using it correctly even after watching the instruction video.

My son is 2 months old, 12+ pounds and 22 inches long. I am 5'2, decently endowed (38 D) and about a size 12/14 right now (10/12 pre pregnancy). I heard you can use the Ergo without the baby insert, which is what I have been trying to do. My son cries when I put him in the carrier and his little fit seem to slide in front of the waist band even after I tighten it. I have yet to try the baby insert but plan to once I can get my husbands help to try it. I tried the Ergo today for the second time and the babe just did not like it or did not like my way of putting him in. I made sure his feet were in the "frog" position, but he just didn't like it. So baby insert it is...but I can't imagine he'll go for it as he gets older.

Are there any slings/carriers that I can use for my height and my babes weight that would be useable from now until about 2 to 3 years? I'm interested in making an investment in something that will last a while. I don't want a bunch of slings lying around the house. I liked the idea of the Ergo as it can be used from infant to toddler and is adjustable for me and my husband to use. And the grandparents if they go for it.

Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Wraps [Nov. 9th, 2006|09:55 am]

So I have a girl from my NINO group letting me borrow and wrap. I love it and so does Waylon. I used videos from youtube to do a front carry. Now I need to do a back carry that isn't so loose. Any suggestions?
