Wearing Resistant Children
This worked really well, and once she was content being worn and had gotten used to being carried and feeling safe worn, I was able to introduce wraps and ring slings. Attending meets with BWI of DC-MD-VA made it possible for us to try a variety of carriers without having to purchase them all. Meanwhile my third has been far less opinionated about which carriers she likes. Although sometimes she chooses a specific carrier she wants us to use, she's a fan of the fishy wrap.
If you are dealing with a reluctant wearee, come to one of our meetings to try out a variety of carriers and get help with the ones you have. It's possible a minor tweak will help your child be happier in the carrier you have. And happy wearing!
