i {HEART} baby wearing

I love baby wearing...

I love how it makes handling two exuberant boys, and a newborn, manageable (and often times a breeze)

I love how WC snuggles in and makes these soft, sweet snuffling noises

I love how C-McC still wants his mama 'nuggles

I love how we can fly out the door with one on my front and one on my back, at the last minute to catch TT's bus

I just got into wearing with TT, we had a ring sling and a mei tai.  We didn't get a lot of wearing in, but I knew I wanted more babies so I knew the carriers would go to good use. 

With C-McC I went into it knowing I was going to wear him and often... I ended up churning my stash around quite a bit... searching for the perfect shoulder and fabric.  I tested out some SSC buckle carriers and none of them floated my boat, so I had a carrier craftsman create a custom 1/2 buckle wrap-tai for me (say that 10 x fast).  I tried my hand at wrapping but being a plus-sized mama the amount of fabric required overwhelmed me!

Now with WC, we are ring sling pros (WC was popped up for his first ride at 8hrs old)... C-McC still likes being worn so we've discovered tandem wearing (one on my front, one on my back).  I love ring slings but I'm still drawn to wraps (and I want more options for tandem wearing).  A good friend of mine linked me to this YouTube tutorial... my goodness she makes it look so easy!  Gosh-darnnit... I'm going to get this figured out!  With the loan of a wrap (thank you) and this link... I've gotten WC up on my back (now I wouldn't take him for a walk around the block but he was up, his head was supported and he was pretty comfy). 

So that's my baby wearing goal, what's yours?
