When we first had our son, F, I knew I wanted to have a carrier I could wear him in. At that time all I really knew about was the baby bjorn, so we got one before he was born, practiced on a stuffed animal, and once he was born wore him all the time. While I didn’t know then that it wasn’t the most comfortable carrier it certainly came in handy when we traveled, which we started doing with a trip to Spain and Portugal when he was 10 weeks old.
Since then we have added many different carriers to our collection, and besides using them on a daily basis when our daughter L was born, I realized how helpful it is to bring one, even with her at 2 years old, especially when we travel on a red eye flight. We pack our umbrella stroller and throw in our Beco carrier and when we land with two sleepy children we can put our 5 year old in the stroller (he is too tired to complain!) and I wear L and everyone is happy!
Do your babies/toddlers like to be worn? Where around the world have you worn them?
