I have a 2yo still naps religiously and a 4mo who we are just starting to get on a regular nap schedule. I am just wondering how other parents in this situation found success in leaving the house for errands, appointments, etc. I feel a bit trapped in the house (it's also winter in New England) and don't know how to go about doing this. Maybe I just need to give it some time? I'm no... More
Is it weird that I bought a toddler carrier for my two year old? He can walk but I live in NYC and I don't think he will sit still on the bus and train . I don't think it's really safe especially on the train platform to just hold his hand . Does anyone use a toddler carrier or I'm the only one lol
Hey - when you guys are at home and generally sitting in place working at the computer, where is your baby? i feel like i hear so many people say they're wearing the baby in a k'tan or wrap all day at home as well and i wonder if thats necessary or comfortable while sitting all day? I put my girl into the boppy or bouncer (at 1 month old) and we hang out on the bed together while i'... More
I would like to try baby wearing. We never did with our first but I would like to try it with our second who is going to be making his entrance in about 2 weeks. I was wondering what people thought about the Moby wrap or the baby k’tan wraps and which one people preferred? I’ve looked up some things on them but I thought I’d ask on here.
I have a baby carrier (backpack style) that did not come with the hipseat (sold separately). I need to return the carrier due to minor issue. Should I buy the hipseat baby carrier set or just exchange for the harness only? Baby seems to like the harness- I just don't understand the importance of the hipseat. Is there any "real" benefit to the "M" position or is it only ... More
Has anyone else experienced postpartum knee pain or notice it gradually with baby wearing? My 5 week old is about 12 pounds and I wear him kangaroo style in a Moby wrap about 4-6 hours of the day. I also have been strength training for the past two weeks, with appropriate rest days, and cardio via incline walking and elliptical use everyday. (No running). Any thoughts before I make a trip to ... More
Hi parents !! I haven’t been using a baby carrier so far for my 5 month old. I borrowed a baby Bjorn one for a little bit, but it was not comfortable to me and my baby boy didn’t like to face me while carrying him. But now that my baby can hold his head and since he likes facing forward, I was thinking about getting a carrier. I have a 16 month old too, so it would make my life easier to wear... More
I currently use the classic baby Björn carrier. I love it. However, my 7 month old son is 20 pounds already and the carrier only goes up to 25 pounds. I love having the option of the carrier for errands when he’s tired or when we go to a crowded place so I don’t have to deal with the stroller. I don’t want to spend a fortune on a new carrier but I would love recommendations for a carrier that w... More
I am going to travel with my 6 month old baby and am confused. Should I use a baby carrier or pram? I am going alone with her and it's a long journey. Can anyone suggest which is more convenient in the airport and if I bring a carrier, do I need to remove it during the security check?
So some days my baby (3 months) CONSTANTLY wants to be held the entire day (even during naps)!! We try and let her cry it out for a little bit however after 2-3 minutes she’s hysterical and starts chocking on her saliva. I mean she’s been fed and changed. What do we do since we can’t hold her all day and get stuff done.
Can anybody share their pros and cons for lillebaby vs tula? Im expecting my second in December and wanting to get a good quality carrier that's easy to use for breastfeeding, comfortable and lasting. I was thinking of getting the lillebaby but after looking at them side by side the tula looks like it would fit a petite person better than the lillebaby (I'm 5 ft and about 115 lbs [pre... More
I’m a FTM & just moved here in CA last year when I was pregnant so I was feeling warm all throughout fall season & just started to appreciate the cooler weather early winter. It’s my baby’s 1st Fall this year & I’m wondering what should I make him wear around October-November. I noticed a lot of baby clothing stores now are introducing Fleece instead of just Cotton on baby clothes. ... More
Yes I just discovered this yesterday when my 6 mos baby was screaming at the grocery & luckily I have my K-Tan carrier with me, so I baby wear him all the way home instead of putting him in his stroller. It’s usually just a 15 min walk but since he’s almost 20 lbs, it took me almost 30 min trying to push the stroller & making sure I don’t trip & walked safely. I’m not used to carryi... More
Mine seems to have mixed feelings, ha. He’s almost 6 weeks.
