“Ups” are not just for babies and toddlers – they’re for caregivers too!  We asked members of BWI Gainesville to share some of their “Level Ups” in babywearing.  Responses ranged from victories great to small, including some truly impressive transfers!  Check out the photos below, and you may be inspired to take your babywearing game to the next level:

First wrap nap.  He was ~6 months old, I had just started babywearing.

I nailed a kangaroo carry for the first time ever, more than a year into wrapping.

That time everyone was hungry/sleepy/clingy.

When my ring sling carries finally stopped looking like this!  So glad I pushed through and fell in love with ring slings!

I learned to back wrap more efficiently, because otherwise our wrapping days were going to be over.  So I learned how to do a double hammock – and this was my first one!   Level up +2!


Shoveling snow while on vacation.  Grandpa needed the help.
