  1. My favorite thing about babywearing is that I'm not forced to choose between a task that requires my hands or holding my baby - I can do both!

  2. I really love babywearing because it gets my kids involved with my life. I feel like they aren't just stuck in a stroller or car seat on the ground. I REALLY want to try the onya carrier because it looks really sturdy and good for walking/hiking. ---Rachelle Betow

  3. I love the snuggles and closeness wearing provides.
    I like my Moby wrap but as Little Miss. I really like the Ergo I borrowed from a friend and would love to have one.

  4. I love having baby close to me, also I can go anywhere with him

  5. I love the snuggles and the closeness and when he falls asleep on me and we can just cuddle together without my arms falling asleep or getting sore. I can do anything and everything I want to, and he can do it right there with me. He gets interaction with people because he's up at their level, but he can always turn his head in to be away if he wants to, too. I LOVE babywearing!

  6. It puts my baby girl to SLEEP and makes her happy even when she is freaking out. I can kiss her 100 times and still have my hands free.

  7. I would LOVE to win the ERGO! I see them all the time. I would love to have one of my own.

  8. i really really would love to own a boba 3g!! my little man isn't so little anymore and it sounds wonderful for toddlers- i especially love the stirrups for their feet!! thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway! good luck to everyone! :)

  9. I love baby wearing because it leaves my arms free! I would love to win the Ergo or Boba :)

  10. I've got the kind of baby that only manages to stay asleep while she's being held. The minute she's lain horizontal, her eyes open. Carriers are GREAT for making sure she gets her full nap time.

    I love how fast Baby falls asleep in one!

  12. I love how much easier it makes things. I can reconnect with Baby and still get things done! I'm really interested in trying out a woven wrap.

  13. I love wearing my toddler it gives us a chance to interact and play during walks and while cleaning.

  14. Love the closeness of babywearing. It allows me to vacuum without listening to my son scream ;).

  15. I'm most excited about the Boba! I really want to start babywearing, and would love to start with the best!

  16. I love that you are so close to baby!

  17. I love that I can keep baby close while still attending to her 4yo sister. Thanks! cokelush at gmail
