I got this hand-me-down Baby Bijorn baby carrier before she was born. During her first 2 months, I walked her around the neighborhood for an hour every day in that carrier. I went to BWI (Babywearing International) meeting when she was 5 weeks old. I tried ring sling and decided my Baby Bijorn is way easier. And I didn't want to pay $30 membership fees when I already have a carrier! Little did I know.
For the following month meeting, I went there with a problem. My baby only want to be carried high on the shoulder so she can look out, and Baby Bijorn doesn't work if she's not sleeping in it. Jay taught me kangaroo carry with a rainbow fabric wrap. I came home with that rainbow Little Frog wrap. So so so difficult. I still couldn't believe how I decide to bring it home to try and not give it up like ring sling the first month. After so many tries at home for a month, I was hooked. I love those very beautiful rainbow stripes tightly wrapped around the tiny little baby body. And that's the beginning of my obsession.
Since then, I stalked and stalked and stalked wraps until I finally decided to buy one for myself at 3.5months and be done with it. Geez. I realized I just added fuel to the fire. Now I'm even more obsessed.
