Re: are there many babywearers here?

In German search for "Tragetuch" - Didymos is a well-known brand here.

I wonder what research was done before anyone decided to market that baby carrier as "didymos." check: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0603161819.htm

I have been impressed with the number of babies I have seen in Basel, who are cuddled up to a parent, snug in a sling.

In the Uk there are sling libraries and coffee mornings which is why i was wondering if there were any here but will check out the links given thanks.especially for pre loved ones as didymos have a lot of special editions they dont stock now.
Sling libaries. I lived in the UK for over thirty years and don't know what that is. Has UK English evolved since I've been away. I barely understand this thread.

I have an ergo too but the wraps are smaller and more comfy for me as there are so many ties... i suppose people think my coat is odd too
I'm sorry, I think the coat is a bit strange. It does look practical though.

I see lots of women wearing babywraps here. Or whatever you call them. People just seem to use strollers/prams in the States, but I started seeing many women wearing these when I moved over here.

I wish all the women would use them on trams because I'm that awkward person who feels like I'm going to drop your baby's wheels when I'm asked to lift a pram into a tram.

It's basically the old fashioned 'hippy' way of carrying your baby everywhere in a long, wide scarf which is tied around your body in various ways, depending on the size of the child.
My D-in-L here in Geneva does it and a friend of hers runs a business selling the scarves.
Fortunately I'm not expected to carry the little one around in one when I'm on baby-sitting duty!
For a minute I was thinking of this...

Re: are there many babywearers here?

in Zurich a lot of women carry their babies and toddlers, me being one of them.

There are carrying aides such as Beco, Ergo, "Tragetuch" (carrying towel), BB, Sling, RingSling, Manduca, Mai-Tai, Ombuhinmo, Bondolino...
numerous possibilities
