moby baby

I love wearing my baby. It feels natural to have him snuggled against me, and he sure digs it. I have a couple of Moby Wraps, and we use them every day. I pop him in for an hour or two at a time, and if he’s tired or fussy he cozies right up and falls asleep. I love it too–I have two hands free!

It feels great to be out taking walks in the changing weather. The aspens are turning gold, and while the shade is cool, it’s still really warm in the sun. Taking Cash with me is a breeze. In the wrap, his weight is distributed so evenly that it doesn’t hurt my back or shoulders at all.

So far, I like wearing my baby much better than using a stroller. I’m not sure how a stroller would do on these dirt mountain roads, anyway–I’d definitely have to get the off-roading variety. But I think babies that are worn close to you are just happier and more secure.

Besides, I kind of like looking down and seeing that little face looking back.

If there is something that has made your life and your baby’s happier, I’d love to hear about it!

    Mia, I was just talking about this with my husband yesterday…
    When I had two little ones I couldn’t go ANYWHERE without my double stroller but now that I have three… I would just rather wear my baby and hold the others hands…. =) I don’t know why but it seems easier! =)
    I love wearing my not so little 3 month old! =)
    I think they do love it too!
