The Ultimate in Babywearing...

is to wear both of your babies at once! O was on my back in the Beco while E was relaxing in my pouch style sling. I love both the sling and Beco and use them all the time. I'm so glad that E is finally big enough for the Beco! I love the sling, but the Beco is much more comfortable when I'm wearing her for longer periods of time. She's still small enough that I can wear her for 2 or more hours in the sling comfortably. O also still fits in the sling, but only for short periods of time :)

  2. Wow, I can't believe she fits on your back! My 40+ pound three year old would kill my back!

  3. beautiful photo, do you need help getting "O" on, or does she crawl up and help you do it?

    VEry neat, I would do this in a heart beat! I wore my babies in slings, loved it.

  4. I haven't done this very much, but O was super excited so we may be doing it more often :) I get O on first. She stands on the bed, and I stand in front of her and she gets on my back. I strap her in, and then put the sling on and put the baby in. The beco puts the weight on my hips, so it doesn't hurt my back even though O weighs around 37 pounds. The beco really is a lifesaver :)

  5. Very cute photo! I did that once, but it wasn't long before my back started to hurt. (I think I made it a 1/4 mile before I realized that I never want to do that again!

  9. so cute, I love babywearing... though my two youngest were too busy, that they didn't ever stay there too long. I remember with a few of the older A's babywearing, was the only way I got anything done!!! I wish I would have taken a cute photo like that!

  13. Great picture. I have never worn two children at once. I have carried one while wearing a baby and that gets old quickly. Glad it works for you. Also, thanks for all of your great ideas.

    You are a super-mama inside and out. How beautiful you are with your two baby girls. There is nothing like that warm cozy love!
    Best, Mary Ann

  16. do you love your beco? I'm considering buying one, but the price has made me a little cautious... thoughts?

  17. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Beco! I can't imagine life with a 2nd child without it. It's absolutely worth the money :)

  18. have you ever tried the ergo? It looks a lot like the beco, but you can use it front, back, side, and like a sling from newborn to 40 pounds. Of all the backpacks/slings I've tried, it's by far my favorite.

  19. Wow--just, officially, wow! My boys were too wiggly for that, so the closest I ever came to your feat was 10kg of one-year-old on the front, and a 10kg bag of rice in a backpack on my back walking home from the store. At least it was balanced:))
