My baby carrier can hold a kid up to 45 pounds. It gives me tons of support, I can carry Amelia on my back, and it is the best $100 I have ever spent. I love being able to put Princess A in the carrier and hop on the subway without having to lug a stroller around. I think it would hurt my back more to hold a stroller.
I also carry Princess A a ton just out of habit. I still carry her from her crib to the high chair when she wakes up in the morning even though she can walk on her own. I decided this is unnecessary and I should let her walk to her high chair to give my back a break.I did this the first time yesterday and she cried.
I picked her up and Then The Husband asked my why I did this. I said because she got upset. Then he said I am the parent and therefore wiser so I need to make the healthiest decision which is not to carry my walking toddler. I hate it when my husband is right!
When did you stop carrying your kid all the time? Any tips? because my daughter is hooked!
