I love this! I did this at a family reunion and it made things so much easier. I could socialize and the baby could nap.
Adventures in Babywearing: Weddings!
In this post you will meet some wonderful families who wore their little ones while they were bridesmaids, wedding guests and even the bride herself. Babywearing keeps families close and it keeps parents and babies content — making sure you don’t miss out on the cake or a chance to spin around the dance floor.
This is on my wedding day this July with my just turned one year old, Sadie, on my back. She spent most of the evening happily watching or snoozing whilst being kept close and enabling me to keep dancing and mingling! • Becky Kerr
I wore my daughter when she was 3 weeks old at my cousins wedding reception…over my bridesmaid dress. People didn’t even realize she was in there until I showed them her little face. That thing was a life saver, not only for convenience but also to keep a million people from trying to hold her! • Corgan Bosley
Last year, I wore my (then) 6.5 month old to my sister-in-law’s wedding. It was an evening wedding and we were out way past the little guy’s bedtime. He basically slept through the whole thing on either me or my husband. We got several compliments on how quiet and good he was through the ceremony. Loved it! We’re now on Little Man #2 (2 months old) and I keep the Boba handy constantly. I’m not sure how I would handle keeping up with a toddler while carrying around a newborn if it wasn’t for babywearing. • Rachel True
Here I am dancing with my husband Chris while wearing my almost 7 month old daughter Jenna at a wedding reception this past summer. My son Josh was dancing nearby, too! • Mireya Colville
My daughter wasn’t feeling well, and I was the matron-of-honor in my sister’s wedding, the solution was your carrier! • Charity Savage
Flash mob dance during the reception! • Joy Ermita
The picture is a little blurry, but this is me with my then 6 month old and my 2 year old (she was the flower girl!) at my cousin’s wedding in September. Thanks to the Boba I was able to dance with both of my girls the whole night! • Amy Oredson
My daughter was only a month and a half old when we went to my husband’s friend’s wedding. So I baby wore her! • Casey Sinnott
I wore my 13.5 month old daughter at my sister’s wedding last year using my Boba Carrier. I was the matron of honour and Avalyn is being kissed by my grandmother, whom I call Baba (87 years old). I love the Boba and will be using it again soon with my newborn! • Tia Clissold
My husband, Miguel, dancing with our son, Milo, who is content and fast asleep. Babywearing meant we got to celebrate our friends’ wedding weekend as a family. • Melissa Eaton
