Check Out This Babywearing Children's Book
I ran across this book while poking around some attachment and natural parenting resources online and just wanted to give a little shout out about it! It’s a children’s book about babywearing called A Ride on Mother’s Back: A Day of Baby Carrying Around the World.

Though we know that carrying our babies is as modern a convenience as anything, and a healthy pleasure backed by proven babywearing research, it is sweet to see a book for children that shares insights into how people from many cultures (many of them living in non-Western/"modern" ways) wear/carry their babies throughout daily life. In this book, we see mothers, fathers, siblings and others carrying children in baby wraps and baby carriers of all kinds while working, playing and otherwise moving through their active lives.

I imagine that children, especially those that ride along close to mom or dad in their baby carrier on a regular basis, will enjoy seeing the illustrations of babies and small children from many cultural heritages being carried as well. The special section in the back of the book that tells more about the peoples featured offers an extra dose of social studies for older children, too. I bet this book would be a good addition to your cuddly close story time and educational bookshelf alike.

This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s light weight, basic, and made of a rain coat type material. I plan to use this in the pool this summer for my 10 month old when juggling my other two.

This is our favorite carrier we’ve used. It’s so much lighter than any other carrier we’ve used and baby girl loves it!

Perfect baby carrier for us. It's lightweight but still supportive. It has a nice, good look to it. It's also practically made and the zipper/pocket storage is great. Also, I can take this anywhere with us because it's compact.

I bought this because I needed a carrier to take my son with me on hikes, it works really well for us. I use it for everything from taking him on errands to doing chores around the house.
