When I had my 2nd child, I would have never been able to tend to his (high) needs and chase my 21 month old around the house, if it wasn’t for babywearing. At the time I used a Maya ring sling. Not only that, but he became a much calmer baby when I wore him on me.
With my 3rd child, I still wanted to push my older two children in my double jogger, so I advanced to a Moby wrap. On my walks, the baby would start fussing and want to nurse. I learned very quickly how to pull up my shirt, position her head just right and let her latch on. Then, I’d continue on my walk. Everyone was happy!
I love wraps and slings. I also love my stroller(s). There’s room for them all.
