Baby Carriers and Husbands (or S/Os)

A few weeks ago we were at WalMart and hubby saw a guy wearing his baby and he said to me "ok now THAT is a baby carrier I'd wear" I walked past the guy a few times inconspicuously to try and see what brand it was, but I didn't see a name or tag or anything and I didn't ask (although now I wish I would have).

Do your hubbys (or S/Os) wear the baby? If so, what kind of carrier do you have?

I haven't bought one yet, but when I do I want it to be one that hubby is willing to use also. :)

He uses our crappy infantino carrier. It's a crotch dangler, but DH tucks the baby's feet under with a blanket. I use my stretchy wrap but he won't.

 My husband will use any carrier we have. He ischeap, lol.

He has worn the Beco Butterfly a lot. 

I have a Moby (he doesn't feel safe using that one)

Ring sling (he is good with that one for short time)

he doesn't know how to use the Mai Tai

There was one he said he would use. Its camo. I can't remember the brand either.  I would google.

I don't think I could get hubby to use a moby either! Lol! When I had one with our first, he was like "umm...did you just spend $45 on a long piece if cloth!?!?!" Haha ...not impressed...

I'll check out the ergo. Maybe if I take him shopping with me he'll see something he likes.

Yep my husband uses our moby wrap when we walk around the mall sometimes, and when we walk the dogs around the neighborhood he loves it!

The ergo is AWESOME. my hubby wears it and when we went to Disneyland when dd3 was 7 months old he wore her a majority of the time.

I should be an ergo salesperson.
