Babywearing in Pregnancy?

What kind of baby carrier did you use while pregnant? My DS is 8 months and I'm 6 weeks pregnant....I love my maman kangaroo stretchy wrap, and would love to hear how you got along while pregnant. Pics would be awesome too!

Thanks mamas!

Re: Babywearing in Pregnancy?

I have worn ring slings, mei tais and SSCs. What I have worn the most is my beco 4G on my back for my son who is now 23 mo old and I am 36 wks pregnant.

this is 2 days ago:



I wear him on my hip in a RS for a VERY short time, like at church. Or I have worn him in a mei tai on my front above my belly. When I wear him, I used to put the waist strap under my belly but it became way more comfortable to wear the waist strap above my stomach once it would stop slipping down.

That's awesome! Thanks!

Re: Babywearing in Pregnancy?

sorry i don't have pics, but was just wearing my 2.5 yr old ds in our kinderpack last night and i'm almost 38 weeks. i can't do it for long, he's heavy! but the good news is, unless we're out walking around somewhere (and dh wears him for that sort of thing now, i just can't, we're both too big ), he generally just goes in the carrier when he's being SUPER cranky, and daddy isn't around to distract him. he hangs out there for about 5 minutes (literally long enough for me to start boiling some rice on the stove) and then wants down, and is totally content afterwards. earlier in the pregnancy, i wore him a lot more often and for longer periods of time, it's just as i've gotten so much further along that it's gotten so difficult.

jury is still out on whether i prefer strap above the bump or strap below, i kind of switch off depending on how i feel. it feels a lot more secure above the bump, but i have a lot of issues with nausea in pregnancy, and having that weight there sort of exacerbates that, so lately i've been going back to below the bump.

No pics, but I have worn DD this whole pregnancy. She is 20 months and I'm still wearing her now at 33 weeks. For the past 4 weeks or so, I've only been wearing her on my back. I wear her in her Ergo and love it. The belt fits great underneath my belly.

I think you would be able to easily wear your lo in a wrap through the duration of your pg bc a wrap offers so many different ways to wear your lo so that you are comforatable.

Wore my 23 mo in a ring sling on my front for a short time today. He was above my belly. He's about 25 lb.

Re: Babywearing in Pregnancy?

I wore through my 2nd and most of my 3rd pregnancies. Mostly a pouch sling with ds1 and a woven wrap on my back with ds2

Re: Babywearing in Pregnancy?

I wore my older daughter throughout my last pregnancy. Here I am 4 days overdue with a woven wrap (pretty much the only comfortable carrier after 20 weeks, and always on my back to balance the weight). My daughter was 2.5 and around 25 lbs.
