i've bought quite a few baby carriers, but one of my favs is my mei tai that i purchased from heavenly hold. i really don't know how i would have managed all this time without a baby carrier. J loves to be held, which is all well and good, but makes doing pretty much anything else a bit of a challenge. so the carriers really allow us to multi-task. and he loves being close to us. he usually falls asleep, but when he is awake he just quietly looks around and checks things out (much like he's doing in the pic above). a definite must have for parents everywhere!!!
