What Do You Do While Wearing?

We are all aware the hands free aspect of baby wearing has SO many benefits to keeping Mom (or Dad) sane and productive. From personal experience here is a brief compilation of all the amazing things that can be done while wearing your baby:

1.       Easily and discreetly nurse a very hungry, grumpy baby in public

2.      Use a public restroom without your toddler rolling around on the slightly damp, toilet paper strewn tile floor

3.      Drink AN adult beverage (AN as in ONE – not promoting any baby wearing binges here, but Mama needs a margarita on occasion!) **

4.       Take your scruffy Chewabacca lookalike dog to get their nails trimmed

5.       Take a long walk on the beach to see who can find the largest seashell

6.       Shovel chocolate laden, hot fudge dripping frozen yogurt into your face

7.       Discover you indeed do have carpets underneath that ocean of toys and vacuum it (success!)

8.       Get your boogie on at the Yonder Mountain String Band Harvest Music Festival (with ear plugs for baby of course!)

9.       Conquer Turkey Mountain and hike to the top of Sparrow Hawk Cliff


10.   Oogle your very attractive husband as he prepares you an anniversary dinner while babywearing…..oh wait, I wasn’t the one babywearing….
