As if picking out a carrier to wear is not hard enough on a regular day… try packing for a 7 day camping trip over 9 hours away from home.
With a 5 year old, 2.5year old and an almost 10 month ago, and a small RV, I really had to choose carefully.
Ring sling? Shorties? How many long wraps? Which SSCs??
This is what I ended up with:
My Zanytoes SPLASH! Water Ring Sling (in Blackberry) was a MUST, of course.
We traveled to four different lakes on our trip, and I loved the fact that it was quick drying and light weight. Babe was happy, and I had two hands free to look after my splashing toddler (preschooler? eek!).
PAXbaby.com’s Surprise Rainbow – Rosa Fuschia in size 6 was next.
Bright, fun, long enough for almost anything, and I never had to worry about dirt.
KoKaDi Dragon Blood Stars in size 3.
Long enough for a quick ruck, or side carry, and short enough that my tails were not constantly on the ground while I was wrapping. Great for back carries to allow me to eat, whilst standing.
This wrap totally surprised me. CRAZY, supportive hybrid stretch. I cannot even really describe the feel of it, completely unlike any stretchy I have EVER felt before. Easy to wrap with for both front and back carries, and my nearly 10 month old felt light as air. This wrap is totally underrated. Comfy, cozy and especially nice for chilly nights around the camp fire. I think this will be one of my coziest wraps for Autumn.
Last but not least, our Tula Baby Carriers.
Toddler and Standard.
Definitely a must have around here as my husband can buckle one on with no fuss, and I prefer to tandem with the Toddler Tula on my back. Love our Tulas for longer walks or hikes, and rainy days. No need to worry about mud, puddles, or stepping on tails.
Where has babywearing taken you this Summer??
