What do you wear?

Stephanie at Adventures in Babywearing is hosting a linkup today. It's all about showcasing what/how you wear your kids, and I thought it would be great to participate!!

This is the back carry in the Beco Butterfly II (purchased at a local cloth diaper shop). I use the back carry mostly for hiking or things where we'll be doing a lot of walking.





This is my brown linen ring sling. I ordered it from Li'l Peeper Keepers on Etsy and we love it! It's awesome for sleeping babies (especially in airports or on flights).






This is my Hotsling (it's a pouch)! This is my pick for ease and quickness! Rachael currently prefers being in the Beco (I also prefer her in the Beco), but if we're in a hurry, this one just slips on and I pop her in and we're ready to go! Also, a great plus to this sling is that it's available at Target. I bought mine at a Super Target and was able to try it on to test out the fit!!



This is the front carry in the Beco Butterfly II. I LOVE this carrier. It's not the quickest of my stash, but it's definitely the most comfy and having both hands completely free (rather than one shoulder not having full motion) is awesome! I was a bit apprehensive about how structured it is, having tried one of those Bjorn type things and none of my kids liked being in it and I was never able to get it comfy, but this one has definitely proven it's worth. My favorite feature of this carrier is the ability to secure Rachael in it before I even put it on. This allows me to be able to get her on my back safely without any help. You can also put it on and then put the child in, but I prefer to snap her in first, it just seems easier to me.

I love your Beco! I have one on order and can't wait for it to arrive. I tried one once and it was so super comfy. Glad to hear you agree. :)

I love your brown ring sling, it seems like it would go with anything. I have a baby hawk but have heard the beco is even more comfy. I won't try one on...I would probably want to buy one (: Loved visiting your blog!

What a nice little stash you have. That ring sling is really pretty. The Becco looks neat - I had never even heard of them until just a few days ago. I think I might like to give it a try.
