5 Reasons to Babywear + LILLEbaby Baby Carrier Giveaway!!

Babywearing has been one of my favorite parts of motherhood since day one.  We started out with stretchy carriers, and then at 6 months, we finally got a LILLEbaby, and I’ve been hooked ever since!  You might remember our first LILLEbaby here when Leighton was 7 months old.  A lot has changed since then, but our love for babywearing hasn’t.  Granted, Leighton likes to face out or be carried on my back, but she still likes being just as close to me as ever.  As she got older, I thought my babywearing days were numbered, but she doesn’t seem to want to stop just yet, and that’s fine by me!
Babywearing was never really a question for me; I just knew I wanted to do it from the beginning.  But in case you need a little motivation, I’ve rounded up my 5 favorite reasons to babywear.
1.)  Close enough to kiss is how you want to wear your baby.  Is there any better reason to babywear than to have your baby cuddled up on your chest when wearing them?  It also helps soothe baby more which usually means less crying.  Win win!
2.)  It makes breastfeeding SO much easier.  And it’s also pretty dang discreet.
3.)  Babywearing burns calories.  Toting all that extra weight of a baby around really does burn more calories.  That mixed with breastfeeding and healthy eating helped me to lose my 38 lbs in about 4 weeks.
4.)  Hands free.  We as women are usually wired to multitask.  Babywearing makes you hands free so you can multitask to your heart’s content.  But personally, if I could go back, I would use all that hands free time to just sit there staring at my baby.  The dishes can wait.  = )
5.)  It is so much easier and more convenient than toting around a big stroller everywhere you go.  Is it just me or are the aisles at kid’s clothing stores not even wide enough for strollers?!
The embossed carriers are some of my favorites because I think the designs really take the carrier up a notch.  I think it would be perfect for dressier outfits as well.  And it is so soft and lightweight.  I have the citrus colored carrier, and it is perfect for a fun pop of color!  LILLEbaby is still my favorite soft structured carrier, and I’m excited to be teaming up with them to give away a baby carrier to one lucky reader.  To enter, just use the rafflecopter widget below.  What color and style LILLEbaby is your favorite?

  1. I'm loving the whole Luxe line I don't know if I could choose a favorite the noir is so pretty with the hold accents but the brilliance is just plain beautiful!

  2. Awesome giveaway and I too love Lillébaby! I don't have an embossed, but I like the citrus color because I think it would be fun to match drool pads and a bib with.

  3. I love all of the LILLEbaby Embossed colors because they're all gender neutral and fun. I love the bright colors to add a pop of color to any outfit. I also love the neutral colors to match everything. Thank you for an incredible giveaway!!! ��

  4. I love that you're spreading the LilleLove! I have yet to try an Embossed, but I have a baby girl due in November and I want an Embossed for her. My heart is set on Brilliance! ������

  5. We have the all seasons birds of a feather and love it! I am dying to get an embossed. I've heard they are so much lighter and cooler for baby. �� I absolutely love the citrus color. It's the right amount of pop ����

  6. My favorite color embossed is the teal! I actually felt one yesterday at my local BWI meeting and it was instant love! The inside material is so buttery soft! After using an airflow for 2 years, I need an embossed in my life!!��❤️

  7. I've been eyeing the embossed, so many choices!! Great reasons to babywear! I haven't tried breastfeeding with it but may try with our 2nd son on the way. All in all a carrier does make life easier for parent and child ❤

  8. I've been drooling over a LilleBaby for so long! I wore my BOBA wrap for as long as I could, but have wanted a SSC for a while! The yellow is gorgeous! Would be so nice to be able to wear my 18 month old in the evenings when we're on vacation and she's tired, but we want to stay out past 7 p.m. bedtime!

  9. I have been dreaming of an embossed Lille ever since I've had my all seasons. Being a SAHM had made money on the tighter side for us. I love the pewter or brilliance, the are so comfortable and classy!

  10. We have the Cupid's Arrow airflow. I fell in love with the print the moment I saw it, and me and my little adore it even more in person.
    I LOVE the pewter and brilliance embossed. Grey and white are kind of my thing 😉

  11. The embossed is my dream carrier!! I love them all and would love to own one! I'm so grateful for babywearing and finding such a great company that I wish I had only known about sooner. I love all the adventures we can take because of babywearing.

  12. I'm torn between the teal and navy embossed. I keep going back and forth – one reason I've yet to break down and get one. Another reason is huge by thinks questions lille for 1 baby is enough. Silly man! #buyallthelilles

  13. My favorite is the coral!! But if I had a choice I'd probably get the navy or the teal because my hubby baby wears as much, or more, than I do.

  14. I love the citrus! Also really like the coral and teal…but something about the citrus always attracts my eyes! I love lillebaby!! I have 1 all seasons but we have 3 children under 4 that could all be worn in a carrier! We are trying hard to get our hands on a second one…how amazingly helpful that would be!!

  15. Love love lillebaby, just last week bought complete airflow grey with silver because we were going to the zoo and have some hiking trips planned and let me tell you I carried my 7 month old for about 5 hours and I had no back pain it was so comfortable.

  16. My sister is due in February and it would be fantastic to win a giveaway and give her my favorite baby carrier. I wouldn't even be able to go to the grocery store without my Lillebaby!
