    Question What is the appeal

    Advertisements
    of wraps? I saw a mom wearing one at the library the other day. It looked like more of a PITA than anything. She was all wrapped up in the thing and it had a giant knot in the back. Her pants were falling down, her shirt was riding up. She took the baby out and couldn't get him back in. It looked like a disaster. Why would someone choose a wrap over a sling or a carrier like a baby bjorn?

    I don't get it either.. I have often wonder what happens when mommies who baby wear have chronic back issues like I have.. Sometimes even standing while holding her was really painful.. I can't imagine having that weight on me constantly. kwim??

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    I don't think I'd ever wear my baby all the time but there were times when Lily was a baby and we were out it was nice to have the carrier. Like when we went to the pumpkin patch. A stroller wouldn't have worked and carrying her would have been an issue.

    I think it works better for clingy babies and women that don't have back issues.

    If you wear a wrap correctly, they are much more comfortable than other carriers. A big plus is it keep the pressure off of baby's delicate pelvis. I loved my wrap, in fact it is the only baby thing I will not sell, just in case! They have to be worn correctly which many people DO NOT wear it right.

    Thank you, BrentsCrystal! You are amazing!

    from the little info I know about them... it sounds like she is wearing/using it incorrectly.
    from what I gather... if you do it right... it shouldnt hurt and it should be easy...

    When worn right it is pretty comfy, i never liked a carrier because it was uber uncomfy like being pregnant again only more uncomfy. carriers are made for men they don't have boobs which is a big down side when wearing a carrier.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    I agree I don't have any chronic back pain but my mei tai wrap was a lot more comfortable than my Baby Bjorn. I can still wear it comfortably with my 22 month old son. I have seen some women that look completely uncomfortable in them but I agree with the previous poster who said she probably wasn't using it right.
