Wear Your Baby- Bebamour Ergonomic Carrier

Admittedly, I’m a little obsessed with baby carriers. It’s the easiest way for me to get things done at home and when we are out and about. Charlotte REALLY likes to be held, and Bennett REALLY likes for me to play with him (and feed him, bathe him, pick up his room… you get the picture). Combine a fussy baby, an active toddler, and all of the things that I need to do throughout the day and I could have quite a disaster on my hands. But the solution is simple. Wear your baby. She thinks I’m holding her, and I still have two free hands to do whatever it is that I need to do.

There are a lot of baby wearing options out there, and you’ll have to go what works best for you. Personally, I like them all for different occasions but the carrier seems to be the most versatile. Recently I had the opportunity to try Bebamour’s Ergonomic Carrier which offers three different carrying positions.

It features soft, easy to wipe material, high quality buckles and straps, and double stitched reinforced connections so you’ll know your baby is safely attached at all times. The waist strap really helps to take the pressure off of the shoulder straps, which keeps my back and shoulders from hurting after use. The shoulder straps are adequately padded and all of the straps have generous length to them so they are adjustable to most body types.

Here’s why this carrier is so versatile… you can wear baby three different ways depending on their age and what activity you may be doing.

The first carry is front facing inwards. This is best for your littlest ones who might still need their heads supported. Or, if baby can hold it’s own head up, you can fold the support down so they can look around (see next picture of forward facing outward). Since Charlotte is still so little, this is the carry that we use (for now).

When baby gets a little older, you can do front facing outwards. With this carry, the head support is folded down so baby can see out. This one is great for curious little people who want in on all of the action.

Then, there’s the back facing inwards carry. I like this one for hiking, or another type of activity where you might not want something hanging in front of you. This carry is also best for older children because you’ll be unable to tend to them while they are behind you. You’ll also probably need help getting them in there with this carry.

One of the best things about the Bebamour Ergonomic Carrier is the instruction booklet that comes with the carrier. It gives you step by step instructions on how to do each carry, as well as the suggested ages and weights for use. I’m a huge fan of this carrier… I’m actually wearing it now!

I received this item in exchange for an honest and unbiased product evaluation, however all thoughts and opinions are my own. Have a question? Just ask!

I’m BaaaAAAaaaCK!

After keeping us waiting until a solid week after her due date, sweet Charlotte finally made her debut. Eight and a half pounds and twenty one and a half inches… yea- I did that. She is wonderful, healthy and an excellent baby. And after taking a few months off from my responsibilities, I’m finally ready (I think) to return.

It’s been a bit of a challenge to be productive during the day. It’s true that two is more difficult than one. Chasing a toddler on anything less than a full nights sleep can (and does) test your patience. As Charlotte and I get to know each other better, there are times I could swear she nurses every half hour, which puts a complete stop to anything and everything else I might or might not be doing. They say to nap when your baby naps… but that can only happen when BOTH babies are napping (which has happened only once since she was born). I’m not whining. I promise. It’s not all bad. Bennett is handling the change like a champ, and I have a cuddly, soft, squishy baby to snuggle with (since my big boy seems to be outgrowing the cuddles). But these are my reasons (or maybe excuses) as to why I can’t seem to get anything done.

All of this aside, having another little person has allowed me a chance to try all of the newest baby gear and gadgets. And the best part- I get to share it all with you! I’ll be posting about the wonderful items when I can (I make no promises to be consistent), and am hoping to pass along the goodies as I can.

Stay tuned. It feels good to be back (and to get something done). However, I must go. My sweet squishy is calling for me.
