Three kiddos & three carriers later, I think I’ve finally found the perfect baby carrier!
My sister-in-law let me borrow a carrier when i had my first, and soon found it to be heaven sent. My son enjoyed being close, so i learned to cook and clean with him on my back. In the evenings, my husband and i would take turns carrying him in the backpack as we hiked near our home. I’d been given a beautiful handmade sling, but i prefer the evenly distributed weight when using a carrier.
We bought our own just before our second was born. It worked for a while, but my daughter grew much quicker than her older brother, and the plastic straps just didn’t cut it (or did they…right into my chest and waist :)).
So I’d basically given up until I started noticing the soft baby carriers. I’d seen Baby Hawkonline, along with a couple others, but couldn’t make a decision till I saw a Mom in the Costco wearing hers. Not only was her’s beautiful, but it looked comfortable on she and her toddler. She was very happy to talk about her fabulous carrier: that she’d picked her own fabric, and could even carry her older daughter in it as well.
Mine arrived earlier this week. Like the mom in the Costco, I chose my own fabric. I chose to pay extra to have an additional fabric and the reversible option, as well as a pocket put into the carrier. My mom and I tried it on my pregnant belly. Can’t wait to use it with my newest son. I think we’ll really enjoy using it, and it’s made with enough fabric that my husband will be able to use it. Thank you Baby Hawk!
