Wrapping fun

February 3, 2009

We left our beloved Ergo at the babysitter’s today. While I could easily pick it up tomorrow, I’ve decided to wait until he goes next Monday and work with our much neglected wraps instead. So with Jason at a Moose game (hockey) and a soon to be cranky pants Isaac to entertain I thought we’d try a few new carrying positions before bathtime tonight.

Now they’re still a little sloppy, but not bad for first tries. While I was pregnant I just HAD to have some wraps as I loved the idea and still love seeing pictures of babies and toddlers wrapped. But the Ergo is just SO easy that these have fell by the wayside.

Hopefully with a bit more practice these will become just as comfortable as our Ergo and we’ll reach for them more often.

    Not bad at all! I am in the same position…I bought my wrap but still always reach for my Beco because it is just so darn easy! I am expecting with number two though I will enjoy a wrap for the first few months, when they want to be all snuggled up and I’ll need my hands free more than I did with Nate.

    I do like the versatility of the hip carry with the wrap though and figure I’ll be using that again come summer time when we’re out and about.
