    Default Wearing a spewy baby

    My baby is suddenly really spewy & always wants to be upright. Carrying him around in my arms for long periods is really tiring so im looking at buying a carrier

    How can I avoid constantly wearing spew all down my front if I put ds in a carrier?

    Ive never baby-worn before so I dont know if I could just put a terry flat down between us. That might be hot though - im in brisbane & its warming up here

    Mine didn't spew when upright in the ergo, but as soon as I took her out she would. However, I did used to tuck a large, clean, dry, face washer into the top of my top or bra, just in case.

    You can do a hip carry in most carriers, at least that way it wouldn't get all down your front.

    DDS was super spewy as a little one and she rarely spewed in the ergo or wrap which was good. I always had a spew rag handy though! Carriers are easy to wash if they do get gross

    He does spew when upright unfortunately

    Hopefully I would be able to use a burp cloth or something without us getting too hot

    You could use a terry flat or folded muslin wrap to catch the spew. I often tucked a muslin wrap in between us. Still do now when wearing an unwell ds

    I hope you find something that works for you

    Could I hip carry an 11 week old? I assumed that was for older babies

    Wouldnt a terry flat or burp cloth between us get hot in Qld summer?

    You'll probably find that a cloth between you will help your comfort levels- something to soak up all the sweat!

    Yeah agree! Skin to skin in a carrier in summer is hell.

    I think the ergo sport (and a couple of others, maybe manduca?) have mesh side panels too

    I carried dd who was a very spewy baby in an ergo. I actually ended up with two carriers so would put them through the wash every couple of days. I also used a spew rag between us. It was Melbourne winter not Queensland summer though so can't help there sorry.
