Hi guys, just a question to all u babywearing mamas. how often do you wear ur little ones? For instance, at church, do u keep them in the carrier the whole time? Take them out after the service to let other people hold them? How about when sitting at church? And also, an example when you go visit grandparents etc? When you get out the car do u put them in the carrier to walk inside? People expect to hold your babies, but I don't want him to be passed around.
Also, how old was ur little ones that would just stay in the carrier for a long period of time. My 11 month old is almost walking and when we go out I can't keep him in the carrier unless he is sleepy coz he just wants to see everyone. But I'm trying to work out if that because I passed him around too much when he was younger, or whether it is normal.
I'm thinking of getting stronger for the next one, and not letting people push me into holding my next baby as often. I just don't know how, especially my own parents who are obsessed with him. I know they will expect to just have my next baby the whole time I'm out at their place or at church with them. I don't know how to change it. I don't mind my baby being held by other people, but I want my baby to be held primarily by me or daddy when we go out. Not just taken away from us the whole time.
