I've never had a baby I felt like I needed one of those wraps or carriers before. Terra makes me feel I need it. Anybody have a recommendation for which is best? Idk that I'll be able to afford it ever at this point, but I'm going to pretend like money isn't a problem and ask for advice.
I would never have been able to get anything done around the house without my carrier. One kid was no big deal but the 2nd one, I had to have one. For an infant, I like the maya wrap or a baby bjorn. When they are about 4-6 months old, I love my Ergo. I got my Ergo cheap from a girl in a local play group. Keep an eye on Craigslist for good deals. I never buy anything new, especially baby stuff. People get rid of it all the time for super cheap!!
Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.
Another vote for Ergo here. It's great for me because I usually have upper back/neck issues in post partum, so it takes all the weight off of my upper back and puts it on my hips which can stand a lot more weight. I think the Beco has a very similar design.
I love my Ergo!! With a new infant I use a moby wrap but once they are a couple months old I switch to the Ergo. My sister and I have been fortunate enough to be on opposite baby making schedules and so we just share one. I bet you could find one on craigs list or ebay for cheap but it is worth the money!
"Authentic love is not a vague sentiment or a blind passion. It is an inner attitude that involves the whole human person. It is looking to the other, not to use but to serve. It is rejoicing when the other rejoices and suffers when the other suffers. Love is the gift of self." JPII
I made my own Moby wrap for a fraction of the cost. It's really just a long piece of fabric. My mom and I bought I think 2 yards of fabric, cut it length-wise, and put it end to end to make a 4-yard long piece. I never mastered all the different configurations, but I did like that it felt stable for a newborn and then still okay for a 1 year old. Hope that helps!
