On the Shores of Downtown Toronto

This is my 9th installment of Babywearing Stories 365. Each installment features a babywearer in 1 photograph and their answers to 5 questions. My goal is to normalize, promote and celebrate daily Babywearing, moving beyond *what* we use to carry our babies and shifting focus back on *why* and *where* we carry. I hope to share the stories of moms, dads, and babywearing caregivers all over the world. Enjoy!

Babywearing Story 9/365

Who: I’m a 28 year old mom of two adorable very busy little boys. Little one is about 7 months in the picture, and my older son is almost 3. That’s my husband behind the camera 🙂 he enjoys babywearing also, but usually he ends up carrying the older one when he gets tired (we have not used a stroller with him for over a year now), so normally I wear the little one.

Where:
The picture was taken in downtown Toronto, at the shore. Just one of many walks we take together.

What:
That particular carrier is wrap conversion mei tai (a mei tai made from a wrap).

When:
October

Why:
I love babywearing because it’s convenient and because both me and my little one like being close to each other. Well, also because little one hates the stroller as well as a carseat (but who can blame him?). When he’s worn he’s just contently looking around, bubbling and once he’s tired he snoozes off.
