The scene: Me wearing Liza in our Boba, a SSC, and the other mama wearing a Bjorn, a crotch-dangler.
Me: Your baby is so cute! Isn't it great to be able to hold your baby but still have your hands free?
Her: It is nice.
Me: Yeah. I love babywearing. I've worn a Bjorn before and man, did it hurt my back!!
Her: Ummm, yeah.
Me: You know, there are lots of different carriers on the market and with a "good" carrier you can comfortably wear a baby and even a toddler for hours. My son is almost 3 and loves riding on my back and my husband's back.
Her: *insert shocked looked on her face* Really?
Me: Yeah. You should google "babywearing" and check out the different options. They might seem expensive but you can use it for years and even sell it when your babies are all grown up.
Her: Ummm, okay......
My goal is to sound approachable, full of southern charm and "nod and smile" my way into convincing a mama that babywearing is wonderful and doesn't have to be limited to Baby Bjorns.
Do you have a babywearing spiel?
