Live & Learn -- Baby Carriers and a New Daddy

Watching Stewart turn into a father will never cease to entertain me.
He has been such a good sport about the whole thing... reading books and articles, attending classes, putting together furniture. And he's never complained about any of it.
This post is a little bit about the Moby Wrap: Basically a Moby Wrap is a popular infant carrier. It uses the entire back and shoulders to distribute weight, keeps baby warm while freeing both hands, develops a strong and secure attachment to parents, and can be used for a preemie to 35 pound child.

But mostly I want to tell you about Stewart demonstrating how to properly use a Moby Wrap. My sister gave me one for Christmas, so I was excited to learn how to use it during our last Childbirth Preparation Series class. And the best part was when the instructor chose Stewart as that night's guinea pig.
To be honest, this thing is a little bit complicated to get on, but it sure does seem comfortable once you've got it figured out. And seeing Stew up there in front of the class, being such a good sport about wearing his future child, just about melted my heart.

I sure did pick a good one.

I knew it the first day we met, but even now he still makes me swoon. What a good daddy he's going to make!

  1. He's going to make a great daddy! A few of my friends have used slings, including the Moby, and loved them.

  2. That wrap looks awesome! And that baby doll looks real! Lol! Love the pics of stew, I have a pic of Dustin changing a diaper on a fake baby from our class, lol!

  3. Awweee! This is too cute! He WILL make a good daddy, you're right! :)

  5. What a guy! This makes my heart melt just a little!!

  6. I love this so much. your heart will explode when you see stewie carry baby marshawn in the carrier, just like mine did when jesse carried harps. i LOVE the moby, i have a similar one and would love to use it on harps still if she would stay still enough for me to get her in it (not ever gonna happen anymore!). :)

  7. I love it when I see dads carrying around the babies!!

  8. Awww, how very sweet. It certainly is different seeing husbands become fathers. Hopefully he doesn't turn into one that talks in a high-pitched squeeky "cute" voice b/c one of my husband's friends did, and I want to punch him in the face every time I have to hear that voice of his. Ugh. Anywho, I have the Bjorn, which isn't great for the shoulders after your baby's more than 15 lbs. My hubs got to wear a pregnancy belly for our birth class and it was AWESOME.

  9. Wonderful website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?I'd really like to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
