If imitation is the highest form of flattery…

My daughter, during a trip to Trader Joe’s during which she insisted on carrying her Baby Guy in a “moby” wrap. She’s done this several times and each time we get lots of comments, the likes of “how cute!”, “omg, she’s carrying her baby in a wrap!”, etc. The simple fact that so many people recognize this method of moving the baby around is telling of our city, and maybe our time…? This, for me, was the preferred method of transporting my daughter to and fro for quite a while: around the house, in the garden, from the car to the store – you get the idea. All the research I did told me that carrying the baby close to you, in a carrier or wrap, was a common tool of an attachment parent. It’s supposed to help with the bonding process, too, of both parents to baby. Needless to say, the wrap and carrier were staples in our House of Infant.
