bundleofperez (933.9 days ago) Point well taken Samantha and babydecember. I will def try to breastfeed in one. I do agree the all the time wearing and napping is a bit excessive. Besides I have another child who will need attention and will need to be held. I def want a moby and will now consider adding the ergo.. They both got great reviews...
bundleofperez (934 days ago) oh wow- 2 and still using it? My son is 15 months and he`s just too heavy. What I meant about all the time was that this article by the popular doctor who coined the term babywearing suggest that we do it not only when it`s convenient but rather the ooposite. As oppose to leaving your baby in the cradle or basinett and only picking them up when they cry. Supposedly babies who are worn have an advantage as far as intellect and social behaviors and yada yada..lol. Found it interested but I thought of the bad habit as, `well, what happens when they are so use to it that they cry when you put them down? I will def only use it when convenient as I did with my son but was curious if anyone else had read about this. Here i found the site- http://www.askdrsears.com/html/5/t051100.asp
MelissaJoanne (934 days ago) I`m one of the people that has raved to Lou-Li about the Ergo. Love the Ergo! :-) I also have a Moby wrap that I like, though I couldn`t ever nurse in it. I could easily nurse in an Ergo. Wearing a baby is simple and convenient. What bad habit would be created, that you are worried about? Yes, you put the child in a carrier when it is convenient for you and the child. (it certainly needn`t be `ALL the time`). For some, that may be more than others. Some may find it easy to do it very often at home, while cooking, cleaning, whatever. For others it may just be for going out on a walk, or to the store. Whenever you like, whenever it`s easiest to have your hands free and the baby close by. My daughter just turned two, and I still use a carrier way more than a stroller. :-)
A.Love::K.Alexander (934 days ago) I have both the moby and the ergo and I LOVE both equally! I never breastfed with the moby though so can`t help you there sorry. IMO I got the hang of the the moby in less than 10 minutes and never had any problems with it at all. I would never put my NB in the ergo though. I used my moby till my DD was 6 months then after that the Ergo.
Lou-Li-Ro (934 days ago) sorry, I meant `Ergo carrier`, it`s not a wrap, it`s a carrier, and it looks more up my alley... you clip it on and it has straps that go over your shoulders, the weight is distributed evenly, people have raved about it to me, and i must say it does look good, it is expensive though, but the kind of thing that`ll last. good quality. google them and look at the website. www.ergobabycarrier.com
bundleofperez (934 days ago) So I`m guessing the ergo wrap is similar but more expensive? What about breatfeeding in a wrap.. Is it practical? And, do you wear the baby ALL the time like `babywearing` suggests or only when it`s convenient?
tawnsawyer (934 days ago) they can be a little tricky, ialmost gave up on it cus i couldnt figure the stupid thing out but then i ran into a mom that was `wearing her baby` and she gave me some tips and i`ve loved my moby wrap ever since!!! just keep trying... it`s like learning to ride a bike... haha and trust me it does make things easier because i have a 22 month old
Lou-Li-Ro (934 days ago) I`m definitely getting a baby-carrier for this baby, but I - personally - would never recommend the moby wrap. From my own personal point of view, it was a waste of money. It`s just a really, reeeeally, reeeeeeeeeally long piece of material, which you have to learn to wrap around yourself in intricate difficult ways, and was frankly a pain in the arse. I never used it. I am a no-nonsense type, couldn`t be doing with faffing around with yards and yards of material every time I wanted to put the twins on!!! Very impractical, to my mind, though I am sure people who are better at fiddly things like that find it great, they must do, since moby wraps seem to sell well! I just hated it. I think I will go with something like the ergo wrap.. whenI have money (!)
