For many new moms, the only thing more fun than wearing their infant is posting adorable photos of themselves wearing their infants. But if you're a new mom running on three hours sleep, crafting the perfect babywearing Instagram caption may prove taxing to your zombie mom brain. I mean, you are carrying an entire extra human, right? That's got to zap some brain power, which is why you need suggestions.
Not all parents get to experience the sublime joy of strolling through the day whilst carrying a bebe nestled up against their heart. Some (such as myself) give birth to enormous gigantor children who come out of the womb already as heavy as small bowling balls and with limbs like tree branches. Thus, our baby-wearing days are rather limited... I feel like I was able to stuff my son into his Baby Bjorn approximately twice before his legs were dangling down at my knee caps. But the few times I was able to tote him around cuddled up against me? I can honestly say I've never been so blissed out while simultaneously knowing that someone might throw up directly down my shirt at any moment.
I know babywearing is a bit of a hot button issue, and there are people with some very strong opinions on the subject. There are those who believe it's the most nurturing thing ever, and that people who push their babies in strollers are monsters with hearts that pump ice. And then of course there are people who think it's the absolute worst, and that children carried in slings will be codependent weaklings with bones made of Jell-O who never learn to walk.
Anyway, if you do babywear, I hope you and your baby enjoy it, and that your child has only ever thrown up down your shirt as you were walking into your home. Now, for some captions:
