My Dad and Baby Wearing

The entire time I was pregnant my dad and I talked about baby wearing and it's pros and cons. He kept telling me I was going to get hot and the baby was going to get tired of being strapped onto me. Well I learned something very interesting about my father, he wore me.

He didn't use a sling or a carrier, my big huge construation worker dad carried me on his shoulders from the time I was big enough that he could hold onto my hands and feet at the same time. He went on a 2 mile hike with me on his shoulders.

I remember being little and him carrying me like that, but I was older then. I didn't even realize that he had carried me like that for so long. My dad did baby wearing even before it started becoming mainstream.

  1. This could explain your close relationship with him. I hope that you and Peanut can have that kind of relationship when he grows up. ;)
