Babywearing While Pregnant
Is it possible to babywear while pregnant?
Yes!! Absolutely! Most definitely! The little one you wear while pregnant will still receive all the wonderful benefits of babywearing, and you'll also still be able to enjoy the free hands! I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with my third daughter and I'm still constantly wearing my second daughter that is 2 years old (and heavy!).
Some people believe that medically, babywearing while pregnant may not safe. I am not a doctor, so please consult your doctor before making your own decision...but I am a Mom! And I've done plenty of babywearing while preggo!
In fact, in this picture, I was 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant with my second daughter. I am wearing my first daughter on my back in a soft structured carrier. She was 2.5 years at the time.
There are many ways to wear while pregnant. Some ladies like to wear a Mei Tai and tie it above their belly. What was most comfortable for me, was to wear a soft structured carrier and buckle the waist low, beneath my belly, nice and snug!
