I wore it out of necessity and then for pleasure!
Jules was 4 months old when he started working with the childminder. I was sad to leave it in the morning but also so happy to be able to go for a coffee, it had been so long since I had known what it tasted like. For 3 years, I took him and went to pick him up every day. It was during this time that I realized that I would have to carry the stroller on all the stairs in the metro ... and that it was not possible at all. So I had to find a solution. The baby carrier appeared to be the most logical and the simplest. Simple ... This is what I imagined before looking at the models and all the possibilities available to me: baby sling, Physio or preformed baby carrier, on the stomach or on the back. More than 2000 possibilities without counting the many colors. After reflection and taking into account the various opinions (which are sometimes sharp like the new teeth of your child which bite your fingers), I opted for the PhysioCarrier. The babywearing slings tempted me well but as I have trouble tying the laces of my shoes I told myself that it was not serious. The baby carrier was therefore a good option for me as a beginner! I started wearing it every day for the 40 minute daily walk. It allowed us to build a nice father-son relationship. I spoke to her on every ride, explaining my day to her, asking her if hers had gone well. I took a "Bou" for a positive answer when in fact I didn't know. Then I wore it a lot more and not just to go to the maternal assistant. Of course, I started wearing him less when he started walking, which happened when he was 13 months old. I continued on the daily commute but as parents, we are so proud to see him walk! In short, I loved this period when we were talking, when I jumped to make him laugh, where I showed him the leaves of the trees. What I liked best was when we were walking around, my wife and I with the baby carrier, when people looked at us tenderly… Especially when they saw a man carrying his baby… well, there, c is probably because with my size they thought they saw a kangaroo.
