  3. My postpartum nurse after giving birth to my first baby introduced me to baby wearing. From then on every time somebody told me I held my children too much I would smile politely and change the subject knowing that my children were benefiting from me. We found out today that we are expecting our third...we've been trying for several months...we are so excited to welcome a third little one into our family and I would get much use out of this carrier. Thanks for such an awesome week of giveaways!

  4. I learned about the benefits after getting pregnant with my second, sadly I didn't know much with my first, but was well informed from resources online such as PaxBaby & The Leaky B@@b. She is now almost 13 months and we still babywear often!

  8. I learned all about baby wearing from my friend, Rio. : ) She has been a huge help to me. I would love to snuggle my baby girl in a beautiful Beco carrier!

  9. I learned about the benefits on my own. My son had colic and wearing him would immediately calm him. Of course then I had a very uncomfortable Jeep carrier.

    Initially in TZ, but not in depth until a parenting group I joined and read from before I had kids (research).

  14. Is LOVE this!!! I learned about baby wearing from just wanting to keep my baby close while caring for my other two littles and the housework! I had prenatal depression so I read up on how I could decrease the odds of developing pod and baby wearing.just so happened to be one of them (along with breastfeeding in demand, etc). My best experience with those early months just so happened.to be because of baby wearing. :-)

  15. I learned about baby wearing from my crunchy mamma mentor Laura. She got us going with cloth diapers too. She still passes things down that her boys have outgrown.

  16. I honestly just felt it was natural to wear my babies from my very 1st on but the SANP has opened my eyes to so many different aspects of it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I learned about it through online forums. I chatted with ladies that were all due in the same month I was and learned about baby wearing and cloth diapers through them. I first tried an Ergo because of them because it was posted on a daily deal site. After that I was hooked and have done lots of research on my own.

  18. I first saw a woman wearing her baby in a rebozo on her back in Mexico. I was probably about 5yrs old & I thought it was so cool! Fast forward 20yrs & I had my first child & hated to put him down. I had a pouch sling which I used sometimes but didn't like it. This summer I started doing more research into baby wearing & just had baby #2. She is 2wks old & has been worn in a k'tan & podegai so far. I LOVE wearing my baby!

  19. We learned about the benefits of baby wearing before my daughter was born. We love it!!

  20. I would love to add a Beco to my baby carrier stash. It would add more options as she is getting older.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I really want to try the Beco.. My husband will not let me buy anymore carriers.. I have 3 different ones but I really really love baby carriers!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's been many years since I learned about baby wearing but I think it was Dr. Sears. Since then I have taught the benefits in my High School child development class.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I learned about the benefits while looking for a carrier to use with my 2nd child. I had one with my 1st that I HATED so I never used it, but I wanted to be able to carry my child for convenience reasons. Now I baby carry all the time for a long list of reasons :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I planned to CD before I had my first, and in doing the research on that I just naturally fell into babywearing :) One thing does lead to another, and another... lol. My favorite so far is the Kozy Mei Tai, but I would LOVE to try a Boba since my girls are already big and tall for their ages!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mostly from online and Go Baby Go Shop. Could really use a better one since mine is not good. I end up just carrying her in my arms a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I learned from my Mom. She wore me and my siblings when we were babies and toddlers. She also cloth diapered us!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I learned online :-) Sadly I started out with a crotch dangler years ago but found the right way soon after. I love my ergo and slings I just LOVE babywearing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I learned online too. So far we haven't had the money to experience them for personally yet =(

    ReplyDelete
  29. Reading Dr. Sears while pregnant really expanded my knowledge of the benefits of babywearing, though I'd consider it pretty common knowledge. However, nothing is more telling than actually wearing your baby and witnessing the benefits first-hand!

  30. Babywearing International! Happy 5th Bday!

  31. Learned a lot online from forums. Also saw the benefits first hand when I used my ring sling with my first. It put him to sleep in no time!

  33. Being a first time mom due in April, I am addicted to research. Different books and online reading has shown me the benefits of baby wearing and I can't wait until my little one gets here and I can carry him/her everywhere with me.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I learned when my little one was a newborn and screamed while I shopped and cooked dinner. We bought an Ergo and immediately saw the benefits!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I learned more about it after wearing my first baby in a horrible crotch dangler and it was so so uncomfortable! I joined a forum on babycenter.com and have become addicted! Now, if only I could keep baby from pulling my hair when I practice back carries.....

  36. I learned about babywearing benefits after doing online research after getting a hand me down Baby Bjorn. I realized it wasn't the best option when it made my back hurt and went looking for more information.

  37. While living in Japan for a year without a job all I did was endless research on natural parenting while I planned on getting pregnant! Babywearing was, of course, a part of what I discovered!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I learned about it from friends mostly. As I've ventured into the cloth diapering world I've learned so much more about it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. A friend of mine was into it, so I decided to try it out!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I learned about babywearing from various blogs and research.

    ReplyDelete
  41. With my first we got an Ergo before I was into natural parenting. I can't even remember why I picked it, but I think it was because of the reviews compared to the typical carrier. I slowly started to become more aware of it's benefits while I was pregnant with my second baby. My interest in natural birth led us to change our whole lifestyle!

  42. I learned about baby wearing while researching cloth diapers

    I learned online, and started out with a Beco for my son! Now that I just had my daughter I'd love to add a new Beco Gemini ( with a girly print ) to our collection of carriers:)

  45. I first learned about baby wearing at a babywearing meetup in gbg. Ever since i have been hooked. We started with a Moby now we have a ringsling and a meitei. Wovens are next :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I learned about babywearing soon after I had my first baby (now 4 years old)! He wanted to be held all the time when he was born and it wore me out. Until I researched babywearing and then bought a ring sling (which is now long gone)!
    Thanks for the chance to win such an awesome prize! <3

  48. I started wearing my babies from my first 15 years ago! I didn't know anything other than she loved it and I loved keeping her choose and my hands free. With her I used a snugliwith my seeing i moved to a sling, and thanks to SANP and go baby go, I have a Boba for this little man and my next!

  49. I leaned about baby wearing through my wife. She loves it and I must say our kids did too (when they were small)! I really like that there are 'manly' carriers available for us guys too.

  51. I learned about it years ago from my dad telling me how he used to wear me while volksmarching in Germany :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I learned the benefits of baby wearing after I had already decided to wear my last baby as often and as long as possible. She will be 14 months old soon and I dread the day that she doesn't want to be worn or just grows out of it. They are only little once!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I was tired of carrying my little guy around while trying to get everything done, and I found out about the benefits while researching carriers and wraps :) Pregnant with #2 and will definately be using a carrier!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I wore my first baby a little with our Moby wrap, but would like to try a soft structured carrier like this one. I'm pregnant with #2, so this would be great to win.

    I have learned one of many benifits from babywearing, my favorite being having baby close to me allows us both to feel secure and I feel it allows baby to feel safe and always want to be close to mommy. Coming from a culture and family where "let them walk" "don't carry them" is normal was hard, but I as my babies mommy know that it creates a strong bond that will last forever.

    I first learned about baby wearing from my Bradley instructor Julie. But it was at Go Baby Go that I learned to tie a moby wrap.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I learned by doing research online and making my own pouch sling. I then received a ring sling and bought a mei tai and I'm still learning. I'd love to try a Beco. I haven't tried anything like it before. It looks so easy to use.

    I learned about babywearing from one of my friends. She was the one who gave me a moby. Then, as I started to participate in more of the natural parenting/ breastfeeding events, I realized that I had been missing out! I wish I would have known more about it when my LO was a newborn, but I am happy that we have started our journey. It is never to late!

    I learned about baby wearing when I was pregnant from classes and internet, but didn't really take it seriously till I brought my little man from the hospital and needed both arms back from time to time :). I knew I wanted a sling or wrap, and that lead me to find my Moby from another baby wearing mama. We have been happily wearing for almost 3 months now!

    ReplyDelete
  71. i learned about baby wearing when looking for a solution to getting things done around the house while still holding my little one. Blogs have been very helpful with trying to figure out what will work for our family!

    ReplyDelete
  72. My sister in law gifted me a ring sling with my first child and it was a godsend! I was able to connect with him and make up for the first month of his life when i was in the hospital and he was home with daddy. I have found incredible help with new ways to wear baby #2 through the SANP babywearers group! Such wonderful ladies :) I have been able to soak in these first months of baby #2's life and see all that i missed out on with baby 1.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I learned through experience. I've been babywearing each of my various five kids for the last 10 years. I only broke into the 'babywearing' circles when I got my woven wrap this past month and had no idea what I was doing....so it was time to network! LOL It's been a big part of my life though!

    ReplyDelete
  74. A saw a friend wear her baby on her back and thought how wonderful! I loved the idea of my baby being close and from then on i did nothing but wear them and love it! I continue to learn the benefits from different groups and web blogs!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I did my own research on blogs, forums, etc... to learn of the benefits of baby wearing. Although I love having them close to me at all times and my son loves it so it's a win win!

  76. I used a backpack style carrier when my grown children were babies and I also used a ring sling with my granddaughters.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I really never thought about the benefits, it just seemed like something everyone should do! With our first we used a sling and started doing lots of online searching for other options until we can across our Ergo. No with baby number two I find lots of help with other mamas on FB groups :)

    Online, searching for ways to alleviate the stress on my arms because my girl wanted to be held all the times, then read about all the other benefits.

  79. I learned about the benefits of baby wearing from my NICU Doctor. Our son came 6 weeks early and needed to be close to mom as much as possible (once he got out of the NICU that is).

  80. A friend suggested I buy a Moby wrap before the birth of my first. I looked it up online, bought one, and have been hooked on babywearing ever since!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I first learned about Babywearing when I was pregnant with my 2nd child and heard a story about a baby falling out of a carseat that had been put on top of a shopping cart. At that point I knew that there had to be another way to go shopping with a baby without putting my child's life in danger - thus I learned about baby wearing and am now wearing my 4th baby.

    I learned about babywearing by watching mommies bonding with their babies while still functioning out and about.

    I learned about baby wearing from friends. I did some internet research and considered but that was it. UNTIL a client came in my office with her child in the carrier. She was so helpful in answering my questions and even let me try the carrier on with her child. LOVED IT and now i want one!!!

    I started with a tinokis when we lived in Baltimore from the local cloth diaper shop there when my son was one month old and added an awesome water wrap from GBG when we moved to SA. Now my son has the mini beco as we await baby #2 's arrival.

    I wore my first two babies in those terrible crotch danglers, but at least it was a step in the right direction! Before I got pregnant with #3 I started to find info on blogs about babywearing and cloth diapers. By the time I had my little one I was 100% convinced that babywearing was for me! :)

  89. Gloria Rodriguez-Vera

    With my first I had a Moby & then when I was pregnant with my 2nd I saw Liz at the hospital tour & learned about other carriers, little one is 6 weeks old so I'm trying to figure out which carrier will be best. I hope I win this one ;)

    ReplyDelete
  90. I think I'm too late - don't know how I missed this yesterday! I found out the benefits from blogs. Dh had always worn dd in one of the "commercial" carriers but we wanted something after she was too heavy for them and we found much better alternatives! She will be 5 next month and is still carried!
