Traveling with small children can be daunting, but babywearing makes the whole experience less scary. Last summer I traveled with my almost-2-year-old alone to South East Asia to visit family, and got quite a few comments wondering how I managed to do that by myself. I miss when I used to travel alone, there were so many benefits.
My answer: I babywear!
If you have a toddler, you will know that they run and they run very fast! As short as those legs are, my son can disappear in less than two seconds — a scary moment for me as a parent.
So any time we are at a public place where it is crowded with many nooks and crannies for him to hide in, I always wear him, either on my front or my back. Mind you, with him being almost 30lbs doing a front carry is not easy, but it helps him nap so can’t argue with that!
