Happy International Babywearing Week! We’re all familiar with the children’s rhyme, “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage.” I have no doubt a lot of expecting moms can’t wait to pick out an amazing stroller to add to their baby registries but I’m here to tell you forget the stroller, go for a structured baby carrier! Okay okay, maybe you don’t want to take your stroller off of your baby registry but here is why you should also consider a structured baby carrier.
Why Should You Use a Structured Baby Carrier?
When it comes to convenience a good structured baby carrier is hard to beat. They are compact, easy to store, easy to use, and quite affordable when compared to high-performing strollers on the market. We have a LÍLLÉbaby Complete that lives in our car and when folded up, it takes up less space than a small diaper bag.
Structure carriers that are well designed like LÍLLÉbaby carriers are more user friendly than other babywearing options. This is why I always recommend folks new to babywearing or even intimidated by babywearing consider a structured carrier first. My husband and I opted to use LÍLLÉbaby carriers because they are so easy to adjust and accommodate a wide range of torso heights… I’m 5’1″ and he’s 6′ 5″ so adjustability is key!
Freedom to Go
Our family loves to be out and about. Whether it’s visiting our local farmer’s market or going on a hike, we love exploring and experiencing new things on the go. Truth be told we have a stroller and it has its own time and place, but when we want to move about easily and freely, especially in a crowd, a carrier is the way to go. I prefer a structured carrier, particularly LÍLLÉbaby because it’s easy in and out for baby and is a comfortable ride and carry for both of us. I especially love LÍLLÉbaby’s cushioned shoulder straps and lumber support. With a structure carrier families with little ones can move about freely while keeping baby close and comfy!
A Busy Parent’s Best Friend
While we all love snuggling our little bundles of joy, at times life demands we get things done. Babywearing gives busy parents the best of both worlds! I can’t tell you how many dinner’s my husband or I have cooked while babywearing.
Honestly when my kids where tiny, my LÍLLÉbaby carrier made me feel like Super Womam! Yes I can hold my baby AND chase my two year old around the playground! Yes I can happily grocery shop with multiple kids! Yes I can make sure my baby naps AND that my home isn’t a mess! Believe me, babywearing is a super power no parent should under estimate!
