I am a HUGE advocate for babywearing. It is truly something that I am so passionate about and love talking about with other parents! Babywearing has SO many benefits for both baby AND mama (or daddy!) Come to think of it, I should do a post on the benefits of babywearing! But… that post is not this post! Haha!
Now, I have loved babywearing ever since Lilly was born and STILL wear her even at 3 years old! And, of course, since Amos was born, babywearing has been a huge lifesaver as well. In fact, I wear Amos even MORE than I wore Lilly… which is A LOT. Amos loves, loves, loves being worn. I wear him every single day! John also loves to babywear – it’s so great for bonding!
In addition to wearing Lilly or Amos, one of the things I do A LOT is… TANDEM babywearing. Or, I guess I should say tandem toddlerwearing and babywearing. Or tandem toddler and infant babywearing. I’m not sure how exactly it is phrased or if there is an official term for it? 🙂
I tandem wear the kids ALL. THE. TIME. It is the ONLY way I can go to the store… especially Target runs or grocery shopping, tandem wearing is where it is at.
Whenever I am tandem wearing the kids, people seriously look at me like I am a crazy person or a circus freak. I will be walking the aisles of the store and people will just stop and stare… It’s actually pretty hilarious at this point.
I promise you, tandem wearing is WAY EASIER than trying to chase a toddler through the store and make sure she doesn’t knock down entire displays or open bags of chips I have no intention on purchasing.
Looking at a plane? Bird? Bug? Not sure…
I LOVE the support I get from these LILLEbaby structured Complete and CarryOn carriers! I am being totally honest when I say that the way the weight is distributed, I am able to easily wear without too much stress on my back.
The key is to put Lilly on FIRST, and then put Amos on! Would any of y’all be interested in a video tutorial in how to tandem wear??
I promise, she actually does love being worn more than it looks like… 🙂
My babies. <3 I love them so much.
Probably one of my favorite pictures ever.
Sometimes they hold hands when I’m tandem wearing them and I am telling you… it SLAYS me. SLAYYYYYYS me. <3 Be still my heart.
