Merry Christmas to Me!!

>> Wednesday, December 17, 2008

Even though Advent/Christmas is my favorite time of year and I am a HUGE gift-giver (as in I really like to, not I give ginormous gifts), I commited a Christmas-gift cardinal sin this week. I blame my mom, really, and I don't even think she'll argue with me. I bought my own Christmas gift from my parents... and then started to use it. **gasp** Now that I think about it, Hubby did the same thing a couple weeks ago with his iPhone so maybe it isn't so much of a Christmas no-no as I thought. My family does this sort of thing all the time. I know what I want better than anyone so why not let me buy my own gift? Well, it takes some of the spirit/fun out of it, which is a bummer. But I had been lusting after this particular gift for awhile and I couldn't wait any longer.

Without further ado... my very excellent Christmas present.. a Beco Butterfly! Hooray!! So far, it is fabulous. Although I have other carriers that I can use for back carries (ring sling, mei tai, wrap, ergo), I wanted this particular carrier due some features that make it unique and really great for back carries with smaller babies. It has an infant insert that clips around baby to make the leg opening smaller and keep their little bodies from shifting in the big carrier. Also, it has an awesome feature (shown at right) that allows you to secure baby in the carrier before you put the carrier on. In this picture, Caden is already clipped in and all I had to do was pick up my Beco by the shoulder straps, put it on like a backpack then buckle the waist belt and adjust everything so it felt comfortable. Voila! Little baby securely in a soft structured carrier with NO help! Hooray!
Caden seems to really like it. As you can see, he looks pretty comfortable. :) He slept on my back like that for over 2hours the other day! No exaggeration! And my back was fine- no soreness or pain at all. I could feel it the first time I put it on. My back muscles were a bit sore but I think it is because I mostly use my ring sling and the Beco uses different muscles that weren't accustumed to the weight. Also, in this picture, he looks a little low. I had him up a little higher today and that seemed to help. It is good to rotate which muscles get the babywearing work-out anyway. :)
I love having Caden on my back. It is so freeing!! I can pick up Lucas (who has been sick and in need of mommy-comfort), I can wash dishes, cook, whatever.... And although you can use the ring sling for back carries and I plan to, I haven't done it yet with Caden because I am nervous to scoot him around my hip to my back at this age. When he gets a little older I will be more comfortable doing that. But that is why I LOVE the Beco... I can strap him in and then put him on my back so I know he is secure.

A couple more pictures because it is my pretty, new toy and Caden is just so darn cute!!!

I purchased my Beco from this great website Tender Cargo ( They have a great selection of carriers and other cool baby things. You should check them out. Their stuff is great and the service was great too.

Shame on you!!! Not re: your Christmas sin...but making me REALLY want that now, lol :) I eyed it for a while and decided that I didn't really need another carrying option right now...but after seeing him all snuggled on your back...goodness sakes...I want it :)

Merry Christmas!!! :)

OK Farrah I am counting on you to teach me all about babywearing for our new addition. I had a ring sling with Aspen when she was six months old but this time I would really like to start right from Day 1.

Love the feature! That's why I'm getting the Mei Tai (the Farrah version) because I feel like you can somewhat secure them first where as with the ergo, I feel like they have to hold on or stay very still least they fall.

I have a feeling all these companies get together and make very similar slings and carriers with just a few differences-significant enough that carrier mamas like us have to buy them all!

OK, we crack me up sometimes...that is exactly what I just got too! Well, a slightly different pattern, but essentially the same thing!

I just LOVE it. I just tried the back carry with Jack the other day. A great addition to my stash of carriers!
