In addition to their cuteness, I hope that these photos help to demonstrate how babywearing fits in to every day life and how you can keep your newborn close while still taking care of your other kids or your life. In the majority of the wrapping pictures I am using Front Wrap Cross Carry because it is my favorite newborn carry. It is a nice secure hold and I feel confident moving around in it. I know that Squeaker's back and neck are well supported. As he grows and can spread his legs naturally, instead of taking the cross passes over his legs (which is what is hiding his feet here), I will take them under so he is, in essence, sitting on an X, which will provide additional support when he reaches the wiggly stage. For now I will take the peaceful, cuddly stage every second that I can get it. I love to wear my little Squeaker. (It has also renewed Bitsy's (Big Sis) interest in being worn so maybe there will be a tandem post sometime in the future!)
