Friends without babies love to wear the front carrier. Let them — 6-month olds are heavy! Ask a friend or sibling if they want to “wear the baby” while you are out and about.
Look how how happy my friend Doug was in this picture to be wearing my son around. Deliriously.
A few weeks ago, Heather gave me 30 minutes to myself by wearing my tiny Scarlett on a long walk while she pushed her own baby in his stroller. I still owe her for that one.
