A lot of people love baby carriers that you wear. I honestly only wore one on one occasion, that I can recall. It’s not because I didn’t think it was handy or a good idea, but I had two babies. If I held one, the other wanted to be held. If they were awake, I tried to split my time, and I was usually sitting in the floor doing it so I could still be by both of them. I wasn’t ever really doing anything where I needed free hands and to keep the baby close by. I feel like, looking back, I wasn’t doing anything…except taking care of two babies..sitting on my bum..in the floor, haha 🙂
When I was alone with one baby, I never really had……
the need to wear a carrier. When Knox & Sloane were little, it was winter so as far as going out and about, we didn’t hardly take them anywhere for quite a while as we didn’t want to risk any sickness since they were on the smaller side.
Brent loved the baby carrier and Knox loved to be in it. So during the spring and early summer, when they were still not too big, Brent would take Knox to lunch or a car show and he would also wear the Bjorn. I thought it was so cute! We had a few other carriers, but Brent felt like the Bjorn was the best option for him and Knox. We tried to put Sloane in it a few times and she wasn’t a fan.
The one time I did wear one with a baby in it, I just remember thinking that my chest hurt! I was nursing and I was quite inflated. It might just have been an isolated incident, but I never really thought about it again because I never ended up being in a situation where I needed or wanted to wear one again!
I know a lot of people swear by the carriers. Their baby loves them and it frees up their hands so they can get some things done while having their little love close by, which really is ideal! So, if you are wondering about a carrier that you wear, I’d definitely say get one and try it out! It might be a great option for you and your baby!
