Make it a Double: Baby Carriers for Twins

Congratulations!  You’ve been riding the multiples roller coaster since you first saw two (or more) cute little bean-shapes on the ultrasound.  Months later, they’ve arrived and the questions have surely piled up.  Do we feed them at once?  Should they sleep at the same time?  Will they wake each other up?  Will we, their parents, ever sleep again?  When are the grandparents coming to help?  I know carrying them is a great way to soothe …

Why, you may ask, am I writing a review of a wrap I didn’t buy?  Here’s my short philosophy on baby gear.  Our family either buys one superior product in a category – say strollers, carrier, or breast pumps, or we buy two or three less expensive and more specialized products from that category.

The Ergo Baby Carrier: What to Consider Before Buying

The Ergo Baby Carrier: What to Consider Before Buying

Why Moms Love Moby

Why Moms Love Moby

Not named for the whale or the musician, the Moby is meant to evoke the image of the Mobius Strip – that figure-eight looking shape you can make by taking a strip of paper, twisting it once, and bringing the ends back together to form an unending band of paper.  And the Moby Wrap holds …

The Wrapsody: A Baby Carrier for Your Little Fish

The Wrapsody: A Baby Carrier for Your Little Fish

I have to admit I was skeptical about this company’s release of a wrap-style baby carrier that could be worn in the water.  But after having it for about a month, I can attest that there’s more than one watery use for this wrap, which costs around $55.

Bjorn Again: A Baby Carrier's New Models Worth It?

Slings can be worn on the front or side but usually are not recommended for holding the baby on your back. Wraps work very well as front, side, hip, or back carriers – positions are limited only by your imagination and your skill in tying the wrap. Some of the newer structured carriers are designed so that newborns are …
