50 Weeks Pregnant

I’ll never forget how I felt looking in the mirror at myself for the first time after having my baby.

“Spawnie” was gone. And in her place I was given a chunky, round, very noisy and squirmy stranger.

I felt like I had lost a part if me. Or like a loved one had died. I had grown so close to the baby inside of me and this baby in her place just wasn’t the same.

It took me a little while to overcome these emotions. I loved my child but missed my pregnant belly. Missed the kicks from within my tummy. Missed the tiny hiccups and watching her try to break loose.

I was falling in love with my daughter on the outside but still longed for the baby inside. In this transition I found the best of both worlds in baby-wearing.

I remember the first time I noticed someone wearing a baby. I was at church and the woman had what looked like her four-year-old sharing a shirt with her.

It looked uncomfortable and I couldn’t help but stare.

As I noticed more and more people carrying their babies around in hands-free devices I became more curious. They really look quite brilliant! Before having my daughter I got my hands on every type of carrier I could find. I know me and I’m a trial and error kind of person. I also like variety.

Wraps were one of the most intriguing ones to me. The tiny babies always looked the most cozy in those. But they looked the most complicated. One long piece of fabric and I was supposed to figure out how to get it on me and get my baby safely in it.

Slings looked the easiest. Just stick the baby in and you’re done. Because of this, I decided to try my sling first. After Lil’ J was born I stuck her in and we fell in love. Since she didn’t like me to put her down, it was the first time I was able to open my computer and get some things done.

A few days later I got brave enough to try my Sugar Sweet Baby wrap.

I watched a few YouTube videos showing me how to put a wrap on and how to put my baby in it. After watching a few demonstrations I got it down. I tried it a couple of times to get the hang of it and it was really a piece of cake.

When I looked at us in the mirror I noticed I had my baby belly back. Only now my baby was on the outside.

She was cozy in the not-too-stretchy bamboo fabric. And I wasn’t overheating. Even in the Texas heat. The best part was I had my hands free to move around the house, and when I did she fell right asleep.

I’ve worn this thing on all 7 of our flights, and on all but the last she slept through the whole trip! (the last one she wanted to smile and talk to the flight attendants).

baby wearing

During a family reunion I was able to eat while she slept. At BlogHer in New York City she was able to meet people and explore the world from my point of view. And on numerous trips to the grocery store, she gets to escape from her carseat (which she can’t stand) and stay close to me as we shop.

A friend asked me what my most practical baby item was and with almost no hesitation I was able to say my Sugar Sweet Baby wrap. I was freaking out about not having a stroller the first month of her life but I honestly didn’t need one. Now it’s my new go-to item for baby showers.

I’m turning into a big softy… I love having her close to me, more so for me and my comfort than hers. All I have to do is lean over a little and I’m able to kiss her forehead and smell her hair. and she loves it too. I’d say 98% of the time she goes to sleep within minutes of me wrapping her up on me. She’s close to my heart and can smell mommy too.

So now I’m on the other side of the fence. I’M the one getting the sometimes-crazy looks (four different strangers asked me if i was carrying a doll–yea, cause I’m that weird) when I’m at the store with her wrapped around me. But most of the time in getting compliments on the idea and how pretty it is.

Now it’s so easy to put on I can do it in the dark. Sometimes I put it on before leaving the house and just stick her in it when we get to our destination. Here we are at the nature park.

happy wrap baby

I sure do miss being pregnant, even though I have my baby now. But until I’m pregnant again I at least get a glimpse of the joy I felt every time I put Little Spawnie in her wrap.

I love that idea! Is it hard to wrap?

Great photos Jen. I never had a wrap – they always looked so complicated! Loved my ring slings…. but seeing your photos makes me wonder what if. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I want a wrap this time around. I was looking into the Moby wrap, but maybe this is better? I always missed the babies inside, too.

Nadine says:

That’s precious! I’m hoping to try the baby wearing myself once my little man gets here. I’ve heard only good things about it ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus it doesn’t hurt having two hands available along with a content baby! I can also totally understand how you “missed the belly” I’m afraid I’ll be missing it too!

My baby is due in 3 weeks and I’ve told hubby and myself that I’m just not the baby wearing kind.. my ex MIL bought me some kind of wrap 9 years ago with my first daughter and I could never figure it out, it always seemed like I was gonna break her if I let go (of course I was also only 17 myself at the time) Lil J looks so comfy in your sugar sweet baby wrap! Maybe I should try to be the baby wearing kind afterall

I’d love to win one ๐Ÿ™‚

How long can you wear a baby? That is, at what age or weight does it become impractical?

Aw…your girlie is super sweet & adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not a mama, but I know I want to do some babywearing in the future. If I won this particular giveaway, I’d probably gift it…I know lots of people with babies on the way!

Stephanie says:

how fun for both of you! she looks so adorable and comfy – amazing to hear it’s not too hot! i’d LOVE to have one for the future little ones =)

Chantel says:

I would love a wrap. Unfortunately, not for me since my little guy is probably too big now and I don’t see weight limits. But, I just found out that I am going to be an aunt again, and I think my SIL would just love this. She’ll have a very active toddler to chase, and this would probably help her.

Aww I love it and your wrap is the same fabric I used to make a nursing cover! I would love to win one!

Paulene says:

I can understand the feeling of missing the belly. In no way do I mean I miss pregnancy, I am in no rush to do that again, but instead I miss him so close. Sometimes I let him nap on me just so I can keep him close and feel him breath. It is over whelming how much we love them so fast. So fast that we first miss them when they are gone from our belly’s yet in our arms. Love baby wearing my little one is still small, only 8lbs and he is a month and a half, lol. I love wearing him if just to give my arms a rest. Love your post as usual, thank you for sharing.

We had a Moby when P was small and absolutely adored it. Between that and the fleece pouch, we had her strapped to us more often than not. Being an October baby, it was so nice having her against us out in the cold — it kept us from worrying about her temp and whether she was bundled up enough. I recommend babywearing to everyone I know. I’d love to have a wrap like this to share with any of my many pregnant friends.

LOVE this idea!! She is adorable and the wrap is so convinient! I always thought those wraps looked soooo confusing, thanks for adding the video! It is so simple looking now! Beautiful!

PVDela says:

I’m pregnant with my third and having never worn my babies before I can’t wait to use such a darling and easy wrap with this little one.

I love my Sugar Sweet Baby wrap! Baby E is so much happier being close to me all day. She’s a happy baby anyway but there’s still a noticeable difference on days where she gets worn a lot. I think every new mom should have one of these! (Or two or three or four…)

Also, I found this contest through Sugar Sweet Baby’s feed on Facebook. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, that wrap is so awesome! I love the idea to wear your baby in the grocery store, etc instead of carrying around the big, bulky car seat.

I wanted to try a wrap with my last baby but thought it looked far too complicated, just watched your video and don’t know what I was worrying about, you made it look soooo easy!! Thanks for the info!

I am pregnant with #2, and I am totally longing for a cute wrap like this to use to keep my hands free for chasing around my two-year-old. I agree with the other comments…I don’t think i could look as cute as you with it, but it sure would be nice!

Liako says:

I absolutely love those wraps! I live in Germany and even though we have a car sometimes it’s just easier to go places with public transport – that would make it so much simpler! You look great in your Sugar Sweet Baby Wrap – I need one of those!

Wraps have always scared me and I thought people were crazy. This one seems so strong and comfortable I would love to try one when baby boy arrives in December!

rdg says:

The wraps always kind of intimidated, but intrigued me… I’ll have to look into this one when the time comes.

When women who just had babies see my pregnant belly they tell me how jealous they are lol and how they miss their belly! I hope my baby likes wraps…little J looks so cozy in yours! I registered for the moby wrap so we’ll see what we get!

You surely made it look easy. Thanks for sharing. I’d love to wear one of Sugar Sweet Baby’s wraps.

Enter me in!! Wraps are the best. Other cultures have been doing this forever and I am glad more mothers are doing this. I will definitely use my wrap more than a stroller.

Rixa says:

I love keeping babies close to me, especially those first few months when they’re so sleepy and snuggly. I use a ring sling mostly at first, then I move on to my Ergo. I’ve also used pouches a little bit and tried a wrap once or twice.

My favorite thing? Being able to kiss their head any time you want, like you mentioned.

I love the fabric of your wrap. So stylish!

Rixa says:

ps–the recalled sling (which wasn’t really a sling at all, more of a big duffel bag with a shoulder strap) was one specific brand and not any of the ones that you’d use for baby wearing.

What a beautiful baby wrap! it looks very secure. not like those slings.

They are so practical for everyday use!

OMG! Lil J is soooooooooo cacute… I love these pics and really wanna try a sugar sweet wrap, baby wearing is the best…

Thanks for sharing!

FSD says:

I, too, mourned my pregnancy something fierce after I had my daughter. I cried often for about two weeks. It was so strange and unexpected. I LOVED baby wearing! Although we can still do it now, I’m not sure if my daughter would enjoy it as she loves walking independently. I had a Moby wrap and a Baby Bjorn.

We have another little one on the way, so I’m looking forward to baby wearing again, although I’ll start it much sooner this time. I’m also ready for any post-baby sadness.

Lil J is so stinkin’ cute!

I’m a first time visitor (saw you on Twitter and thought I’d stop by.) You have a beautiful blog! I can relate so much to your sadness at the loss of your belly. I didn’t understand why I felt that way, but it was a really strong emotion I didn’t expect. I figured the best thing to do was to let myself feel it, so I did…and I cried for weeks. Now, 10 months later, I have to admit I wish I had a little less of a belly! Until next time, that is…hopefully soon! I would love to win a wrap for baby #2!

We have a lot in common…I wish you lived in my town (or worked in my office!)

I get to test tomorrow — we’ll see if I need a baby wrap in about 9 months or if it’ll be a few more. Thanks for sharing!

I would love a wrap! They are so cute!

Chelle says:

That is so amazing. I will be working on trying to conceive next year after I lose a good amount of weight and get in better health and recently finding and reading you blog has giving me so much info that is already helping me in future choices. This wrap looks amazing compared to the slings that I always worry about after hearing about some infant deaths due to them. Thanks for the video showing how easy it is to get on and congrats on your beautiful bundle of joy.

Saran says:

Thanks for posting the tutorial video, and your pics are great! Lil J is absolutely adorable!!! I’d love to have one of those wraps. Thanks!

Brie H says:

I hope to have a wrap to try out with our 2nd baby due in Nov – I was too scared with the 1st one and by the time I got one he was too big for me.

coolbreeze says:

I’m intrigued, that’s for sure! I use a baby bjorn type of carrier and it looks so uncomfortable for my little one since she’s still so small. Count me in on the drawing, thanks!

Yuki says:

I think your title of 50 weeks pregnant is really funny but when I think about a little baby wrap cosily on his mother tummy with a hint of pregnant belly I think it’s the most adorable thing on earth!

You are the fist person I hear them say that they don’t own a stroller. I would really love that but I am scared, scared that my back will not like that because I have back problems.

Anyway thank you for your wonderful post and this giveaway

She looks so cute & you look so comfortable carrying her in that wrap. I’d love one!

Thanks for posting the video on how to put on the wrap. I got my Sugar Sweet Baby wrap in the mail yesterday and when I tried to put it on, it was way too loose. But I watched your video this morning and put it on along with you, and it worked out so much better! Of course, it will be easier when this belly isn’t in the way ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks so much!

Mrs. K says:

Not pregnant yet, but would love to have one. Looks so comfy and easy to carry baby with. I like that your hands are free so you can do other things while keeping your baby close. Also thanks for the video ๐Ÿ™‚

Christina K says:

This video is so helpful! Thx!

Saran says:

This looks like a great carrier! Thanks for creating and sharing that video!

JEN! Can I just say I love you and how your mind functions! Member that one day you and I had a heart to heart in your car about how I wanted to consider journalism…doing and being good at something I am passionate about…writing. Well baby girl I still havent done so but I must admit I find solace in the fact that I have a friend who so eloquently describes the things that I can only muster up in my mind. I am 39 weeks and myyyy goodness am I ever so ready. It is currently 3:38 am and I cant sleep a wink cause I am catching up on reading your posts! Way to do you ma! I seriously wish I wouldve documented my pregnancy better. Wishful thinking and maybe Ill actually act on that in the future also ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anywho dying to pick your brain! topics of particular interest: breast pumps and pediatricians and vaccines.

Sign me up for this contest girl! I am all about these. i have heard only the best about them!

PSS. Lil J esta SUPER PRECIOOOOOSA!!! Felicidades carinho. Thanks so much for being such a phenomenal woman Jen! sending love and light in your direction bella!

mo mcd says:

This wrap looks so comfy for baby! Big Mac loves to be carried around. I should get one of these! He’s too big for the cloth mei tie and the snuggli isn’t very comfortable for either of us while we chase Crazy Pants. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love her wraps so much!

& thanks for doing the video, I thought this wrap looked pretty hard to put on but now I want one more cuz it’s so easy to wear!

Wow, I love the idea of this wrap. The baby looks so cozy and you are able to have your hands free. What a great idea.

I’d love to try a wrap with my 2 month old baby girl. I think it would be much easier to get things done around the house.

Patricia says:

I saw these at a baby expo and I am hoping I get one as a shower gift! I can’t wait to see if I get one!

jineen says:

it doesn’t look super hard…… i’m due in april and would love to give something like this a try! (p.s. i am mesmorized by the pics of your daughter and when i dont have time to read the whole post i skim thru to see any new pics!)

Sara says:

I had one of these with my last baby and really liked it, but I ordered it too small. It only fit me/baby for about the first month. I ended up giving it to my sis-in-law and am now pregnant again. I LOVED the convenience! Can’t wait to have the next one – and actually use it this time!

Qtpies7 says:

The one thing I was so sad about as my youngest got older and older was that I wasn’t going to get to wear my baby anymore. I kept my wraps and slings, thinking I’d pass them to my children as they become parents.
But, surprise! We are having another baby! I am thrilled to get to wear another baby! I’d love to try another wrap, and one as gorgeous as this one.

socmama says:

I’ve been wanting to try a different kind of carrier with my next baby (due any day!). I’d love to try this one! It looks great!

Liz says:

What an awesome product! It looks so convenient and SUPER cozy! With a little one on the way, this would be ideal. Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

I really enjoyed wearing both my babies. Used one of those kangaroo carriers with both. But added a sling to the mix with my son and it was fabulous. I loved that I could nurse him while I was walking. It was TOTAL liberation!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think these carries are an intimate and safe way to carry a baby. Thank you for demonstrating how easy it is to put on because I must admit, they looked a little intimidating at first glance. Congrats to you and your husband on the beautiful bundle of joy you’ve created!

p.s. I’m following on twitter and facebook! I sooo want one of these for myself!
