He Wears Me Out

In honor of International Babywearing Week, Steph over at Adventures in Babywearing is having us link up our babywearing pics. So, I'm reposting why I love my Nest sling along with one of our many fabulous photographs taken by fellow babywearer Fina' Drea.


Oh sling, how I love thee. Let me count the ways...

1- You help me to get things done around the house when it seems there would be no other way.

2- You give me an excuse to not do things around the house (i.e. too dangerous to cut onions with baby attached).

3- You soothe my fussy baby like no other.

4- You allow me to travel around Target or any other favorite store without being tethered to a shopping cart.

5- You assist me in getting around the world's smallest Whole Foods without leaving destruction in my wake.

6- You help me to move from building to car in a rainstorm without baby or mommy becoming completely saturated because I can actually carry an umbrella and still maneuver baby.

7- A quick stroll is so easy because I no longer have to fumble with getting out, opening, and fastening a stroller.

And most importantly...
8- You allow me to feel secure in carrying my very squirmy baby whenever I want to snuggle him.

Oh yes, and Linus loves you too. He has been known to fuss when being removed from the sling. He loves it so.

(For fantastically stylish slings, go to Nonny & Boo. All their slings are drool worthy. You can even pick up mine, the Cherry Bomb, for a fantastic price.)

So true! This was funny.
Sometimes, my girl would even fall asleep in her sling and I could browse the store as much as I wanted.
