    A 28 lb toddler?



    This is an older pic (note the not-so-primal gut spillage above the band ). I think he was only about 25 lbs then, but I wear him like this on a pretty regular basis, can't wait til I'm fit enough to need extra weight during workouts, this will do quite nicely!

    I went for a 1.5mi walk with my 36lb 3.5yo on my back in a wrap. Best workout ever. I was so tired, and he had so much fun.

    Very cute.

    Whenever I want to kill my traps, I'll throw my 35lb toddler up on my shoulders and walk around for a while. Then I hold her in one arm so she's sitting on my hip (which really isn't much to sit on since I'm a guy)...this becomes an awesomely painful isometric bicep exercise after about 5 minutes. Yeah, toddlers can definitely help keep you fit!

    who needs a kettlebell too! I grab my toddler by the torso (he is 35lbs.), and do kettlebell swings, overhead presses, then put him on my shoulders and do squats. He loves it! Great pic and cute kid by the way. =)

    I love carrying ds around in my ergo!!! What I really need to figure out is how to carry both dd and ds! I've got several woven wraps I could do a back carry w/dd and wear ds in the front...If I did that That would be almost 60lbs of heaving lifting!

    ds is currently 24lbs and change... dd is 28lbs and 2yrs older than her little brother (Who's quite the Moose!) On Saturday we went for a family hike at the local nature center...saw 6 deer, frogs, fishes ect... ended up being out for a little over an hr but it was soo much fun!

    I used to love my mei tai for my babies. Cute pic!
    Your book club may have scintillating discussions. But my book club can drink your book club under the table.

    We've used a moby wrap with our daughter since she was born and still use it all the time now at 8 months.
    Things I like:
    Both wife and I can use the same wrap
    Multiple positions
    Can be used as a cover for feeding
    stuffs into any shape

    My wife actually was doing a stair workout with the baby, where she would do 40 up/dwn cycles on the stairs with her in the moby. It seemed like a pretty good workout and our daughter loved it.
