Exploding brains

Yes. You read that correctly. My brain is about to explode.
Why is that you ask?
Baby carriers.
That's why!

I am having the most difficult time deciding on a baby carrier. For the life of me I do not understand why this is such a stressful task for me-it's just a silly baby carrier. We chose the kid's name easier than this silly baby carrier!
I think the drama lies in the fact that there are so many options. It's simply too hard to choose!
You gotta think about weight limits.
You gotta think about straps vs. snaps vs. ties
You gotta think about color.
You gotta think about if it can be worn on the front AND the back
And most important-I would prefer if it was sorta cute. Don't judge my priorities!

You know where all that leaves me? Nowhere.
If the carrier has a good weight range it can't be worn on the back. If I would wear it then Dana will not-and vice versa. If it has a decent looking (and by that I mean simple) snapping mechanism then it doesn't carry infants. If it's kinda cute then it only ties and who wants to look like a giant Christmas present while sporting a big ole bow?
Not I.


See...this is what a lack of sleep does to me. It makes me irrational!
I can usually make simple decisions-but not now apparently.
I think I shall sleep on it. I will make a decision in the morning.

In the words of Scarlett O'Hara (because every good southern girl can name at least 10 good quotes from Gone with the Wind): "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow."


  1. Judging by the ones my friends have, start with a Baby Bjorn and when she outgrows that then go for one of the ones that can be worn on the back. The Bjorn is super easy to put on too, you can do it one handed. And I agree with you on the Gone With the Wind...EVERY southern girl worth her momma's china should be able to quote that movie :-)

  2. Lawzy, we got to have a doctor. I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies!!! Nor no nothin' 'bout no baby carriers !!!

    Think I'll just have me another mint julep!!

  3. I have a ring sling that I adore! I could wear Ian easily when he was little and I still use it now that he is bigger. There are tons of great holds for the ring sling!
