I started my babywearing journey with my first child, as a newborn once he reached the minimum 8lbs suggested by our Baby Bjorn. We slowly began investigating more ergonomic carriers as he grew, and a few months I quickly fell down the babywearing rabbit hole.
Now, I have another baby, and my 2.5yo doesn’t need (or want) to go up often. He’s busy playing and running and doing toddler things.
But then there are the times we go hiking, and little legs get tired.
There are the times he wants to help me try out a friend’s woven wrap.
There are the times when he desperately needs a nap.
He may not be a baby any more, but he
still needs to be held close every once in awhile.
And I will be able to hold him, no matter what I’m doing, thanks to babywearing. Even if he just needs me to hold his hand.
