Well sort of in the media. I was watching The Avatar: The Last Air Bender, and they were baby-wearing!!! It was pretty neat :D

they always show, especially dads, with these really big babies in Bjorn type carriers facing forward. i always wonder if they make the carrier special for larger babies since the babies they show must be over the weight limit for the type of carrier. also how uncomfortable must the kid be dangling from the crotch like that? i wish i had known better with my first. i'd love an Ergo or Boba Air. but since my dd is 2 1/2 and no plans of having more i can't see spending $ on another carrier. i have a mei tie but she's getting to big for it. she doesn't like to be carried all that much anymore. but there are times i really want to put her on my back for a bit.

I always love seeing breastfeeding, babywearing, cosleeping, etc. being positively portrayed in the media!

It's in the episode where they are in the city where King Boomy lives, and he's captured by the fire nation. And the fire people occupying the city have a baby. The baby leaves the city walls by mistake and they try to take the baby back. Well they wear the baby! It's pretty neat :D

I think it's cool when it's done correctly. Nothing irritates me more than to see tv shows & movies(like that new show about dads with kids & the Walgreens commercial) who carry their kids around in crotch danglers.

This was more like a wrap.
