It’s International Babywearing Week! Babywearing has been a big part of bringing up both my littles. My little guy isn’t a fan of being put down, so he gets to ride in the ergo around the house quite a bit. Wearing him in the ergo is the only way I can run around with both kids. It lets me still have my hands free for my daughter who is growing in independence, but still needs to hold my hand or get a lift every now and then.
Babywearing has been an integral part of traveling for us as a family. It was the easiest way to get through airports and explore spaces that aren’t stroller friendly. Even when I bring the stroller, I pack the ergo in the bottom. You never know when you’re going to need to park the stroller at an entrance before entering a site. It also seems to be a pretty surefire way to calm a fussy babe. Has worked like a charm for both our kiddos so far. Here’s some of my favorite babywearing snapshots from our travels!
I can’t recommend a baby carrier of some kind enough! If you are a mom to be, this is a must! If you’re a mom about to start traveling, this is a must! It’s good for baby and makes your life easier-everybody wins! Happy International Babywearing Week!
