|ToughTraveler carrier on vacation in Bryce Canyon|
Fast forward a bit until I was pregnant with Nora and researching my eyeballs out with all things baby and I KNEW I wanted to be able to wear more; I also knew the budget just wasn't there for a fancy carrier that I dreamed about, but I did find an infantino Mei Tai, only $20 bucks on Amazon! I used my baby registry list to buy it for myself and loved it once Nora came; that carrier still tops the charts as Phil's favorite overall carrier-though we've never tried another brand, but I'm totally open to trying... .Ergo ended up running a crazy good sale right after my birthday in July; I have a great family that still gives me money for my birthday; and I splurged and got my Ergo. I was on cloud 9 because I'd hit the ultimate goal: an Ergo! Fast forward a bit more and with the help of a couple side gigs my "stash" has grown to include: A Standard Tula, Toddler Tula, Sakurabloom Ring Sling, and Infantino Mei Tai. I've since given away our first wrap to a mom that didn't have one for her newborn, sold that Ergo, and loaned out the standard Tula and Mei Tai to moms that didn't have carriers. Right now I've only got the Toddler Tula and Ring Sling, which lives in storage since Nora learned to get out of it.
