#015 The Trials and Tribulations of Carrying a Toddler

March 15, 2018

Here’s what we covered in this episode:

  • Whether we (Brooke & Angela) are still wearing our 2 & 3 year old’s and how having younger siblings has affected our toddler wearing journey
  • The carriers we use most with our toddlers
  • Some babywearing challenges that start to come up when your baby turns into a toddler (heavier, up and down, independence, demanding ups, getting out on their own, being rough, etc)
  • Some special benefits and joys that come from wearing your toddler in a wrap or carrier (safety in public, portability, tired little legs, happier than in stroller/trolley, unexpected naps, comfort for tantrums/sickness, calming for parent too)
  • Is it too late to start if you haven’t tried babywearing until toddlerhood?
  • Is it normal to find it challenging while still loving it?
  • Tips on finding a carrier that is suitable for toddlers
  • Knowing when to use your carrier and when to let them walk/ride/run

You’ve got this, mama!
