For years I never thought a thing about my size. I was a size two going into college. I danced (ballet ya’ll) six days a week. I was a twig. Then I slowly started gaining weight, and then I got married and had babies. I went from twiggy to plus size in a matter of years. When my precious little guy was born, I saw a Moby wrap and I thought, “I must have that.” I quickly went from, “I must have that” to “…but I’m too fat” and “What will people see when they look at me, the fat mom with the tiny baby wrapped to herself?” If you are a plus size mom, I bet you’ve had the same thoughts.
The thing is 1) No, you aren’t too fat to babywear. 2) Yes, the carriers will fit you. 3) People will see a mother who is wearing her baby, and a tiny baby they want to touch and ask a million questions about. They are too enthralled by your ability to multi-task and by your beautiful child and how in love you are with your child to care about your body image.
