baby carriers

I've been thinking about baby carriers today. I know I know my day is so exciting. We just placed an order for a baby bjorn but it won't be here for awhile cause Target screwed up and shipped it to an old LA address and now its on backorder. Stupid long story but eventually we will get it.

But I'm really thinking about getting a Moby but I can't tell if it will be too complicated for me and when I see people carrying their babies I always worry they will fall out. I like the idea of this when I'm doing little errands and not having to deal with a stroller. I know there are a billion brands out there like Moby. What do people use and like?

Ran around for a few hours doing errands and I actually feel pretty good. I haven't had any Braxton Hicks or cramps all day so that is a relief. Her kicks do hurt now since they are so strong but I don't mind as long as I know she is moving around in there. I've finally melted into the couch with a protein shake cause tennis is on. I love me some US Open. I can't wait to be able to play again. Blake and I got sorta obsessed with tennis a few years ago so we attempt to play. We are both really terrible at it but its still super fun.
I'm kinda sitting waiting by the phone for a call from a photo editor. She left me a message earlier about shooting two jobs in San Diego. I know I shouldn't do the jobs since I'm massive and could really have this baby at anytime but I can't turn them down especially since this mag pays pretty good. So I'm kinda in a shitty place and waiting for a call back to get the details. Blake has offered to help me with the shoots as long as they pay enough to make it worth it for him to take off work. In that case I know I would be fine, I would just need to shoot and direct which I can totally do with help, I hope. Ug so annoying I don't get work for months when I move here and then all of a sudden when I'm ready to have this baby things come in. So we'll see how intense the shoots are and hopefully they will work out and I won't give birth on set.

  1. I just came across your blog listed on Top Baby Blogs and I hope you don't mind me giving you advice - but please steer clear of the Baby Bjorn! There are so many better carriers on the market! Go here: to read about issues with forward facing, crotch-dangling carriers like the Bjorn.

    Lots of people love the Moby for their newborns and they are easier to use than you might think. I used a ring sling from day one and loved it (still do!). I also have a Beco and mei tai which are both great for having baby on your front, hip and back. Both allow baby to sit in a much healthier position than something like a Bjorn or Snugli.

    I hope I'm not being too nosy for you - it's just that a little piece of my babywearing heart dies every time I see a little one in a Bjorn.
