Babywearing: I've shown you mine, now you show me your ...

babywearing beau!

One of my tips about how to help your hubby wear your baby was to show him there are other men out there who sport their babies in carriers. So let's see some of those men wearing their babies!

The winner will be featured front and center of my next babywearing post! The first and second runners up will also be given some press on the same post ... however, they won't be front and center. Sorry. That spot will be reserved for the most inspiring (or heartwarming or funny) babywearing daddy photo. The winner also will be gifted with a $5 Starbucks gift ... because if you've got a kiddo to wear, you probably need the caffeine.

Boring rules and the not-so-fine print:

* The photo must be yours!

* The kid must be yours!

* You gotta reside in the U.S. and this type of giveaway must be legal where you live. You don't want to do time for a $5-contest prize, now do you?

* You must e-mail (hyacynthworth@ yahoo.com) your photo to me by MIDNIGHT Sunday, January 11 (or at least by Monday morning when I wake up!).

* You can only send me three photos.

* EDIT: The top three pictures will be chosen by my very own babywearing daddy, John, because he's gotta get something kind of reward for letting me post a picture of him as a banana tree wearing our little monkey, Gabe. The winner will be chosen by YOU, my blog readers, so you'll have to vote for your favorite.

The runners up will be announced Monday, January 12 by 9 p.m. Send this post to all the lovely babywearers you know ... unless you are afraid of a little competition. :) Help spread the babywearing love. Happy babywearing!


  1. How is it possible to beat the photo of John and Gabe? It's just the best. What a great dad!

  2. Aww, thanks for the sweet comment.
    He loves wearing Gabe even if Gabe is uninterested sometimes now that he's older.

    Also, for what it's worth, John's picture is NOT part of the contest because I am not giving him a giftcard. ;)

  3. I believe that my husband thinks that his p**** would fall off if he wore his child. So you won't get photos from me. :( I love to win.

    Check out this blog entry from one of my new favorite bloggers.


    She should win!

  4. Hey, I'm already linked to! Cool! Thanks Rachel. :)

    Just posting to say thanks for the contest, and I sent you a few, although there's no way they can beat the banana tree with monkey attached. Although for the Boychick's first Halloween, The Man dressed as a pirate, and we did our best to dress the Boychick as a parrot, and he put him in a high back carry... No pics of that, alas.

    (And we too are wearing much less these days -- the Boychick actually insists on /walking/ up to the store now. *bawls* At least it proves an attached babyhood doesn't discourage independence.)

  5. that picture is hilarious and cute ... wtg john!

  6. Yay, so much fun! I don't have good babywearing pictures because my dh wears all day while I am at work. But, you saw the one in my blog with him cooking dinner while wearing a pink leapord Obi...that has to be worth something! ;)

  7. What a great idea! I wish my hubby would wear our toddler, he is getting heavy!


There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
