Okay, maybe not. But when your toddler or preschooler gets a cold and suddenly wants to be no where more than on top of you, babywearing is the answer for your little one's comfort and for your sanity.
A couple weeks ago I noticed a post on Facebook that a friend had a sick 2yr old who was being clingy and mom was getting "touched out." I knew this mama had worn her child, but probably thought she'd "aged out." I suggested a carrier and she said, "you know, that's a good idea, let me dust off the Ergo." Sometimes we can dismiss babywearing as an option as our children get bigger, but really, nothing comforts babies, toddlers, or even big kids more than mama (or daddy) cuddles when they aren't feeling their best.
It can also be a big help when you have another littler one to wear. Sickness is exactly the time to bust out tandem wearing. This also conveniently keeps the hands of the sick one behind you and off of the baby.
