I love to wear my two month old baby, especially when I have to walk to pick up his big brother from school (right across the street) and I don't want to try and make my way through a sea of children with a stroller! I just wish 5 years ago I would have figured out how awesome baby wearing was sooner! My first son was 5 months old when I started baby wearing.

There's nothing going on in SD for IBW, but I'm wearing my baby nonetheless. :-)

I love wearing my kids, my 18 month old won't even sit in a stroller and my nearly 5 year old still asks me to wear her sometimes

I'm really new to babywearing, but so far I love it!

I wear my DS at church (if he's not being held by others). Someone mentioned to me today that I could just use his carseat. I told them he sleeps much better in his Ergo than his carseat.

I celebrate babywearing every single day by wearing my 11 month old. :)

I can't say that I did it for IBW, but on Monday I had to stay home with my 8mo while dad was at the dentist but I had a conference call for work, so baby went into the Ergo while mom was on the cell phone. Worked out great except that I had to hit mute after he fell asleep and started snoring :)

I still wear my 6 year old in my Boba! No worries she is little and still meets the weight requirements. Those stir-ups are a great invention! The 3 year old and the baby also get worn in the boba and a traditional ring sling. My 9 year old son loves to wear his baby brother <3

This is great. Babywearing is a necessity for me with 3 kids in 3 years:) I do love it too though.
