    Walking with weights... 30lb toddler on my back =)

    I saw a post about wearing a weighted vest for walking/running and I was just wondering, does anyone else count wearing their 30lb child as exercise? I've been 'babywearing' for longer than I've been 'exercising', but now that I am more concsious of it, I count it.

    Instead of plopping my 2 year old in the cart at the store, or in a stroller when we go to the zoo, I load him up on my back either in a Mei Tai or my Ergo carrier and walk.

    Anyone else?

    My toddler/preschooler is 45 lbs and would happily be a pack baby if I let him. I injured my back last summer and haven't packed him too much since and really have lost the endurance it takes to pack the little squirm worm. I also found out that part of my back problems are arthritis. He is also getting long enough lately that the mechanics aren't working well anymore. I'm 5'5" and my hubby is 6' and my son is headed his daddies direction for height.

    That's totally legit exercise. About as Primal as it gets, too.

    I totally count it when I am packing the almost six month old while chasing her 3 1/2 year old sister. :-)

    I wear ds still he's. Lose to 30lbs. Right now he still loves to be worn, though not sure for how much longer. It's been a bit cold to wear him for long walks but when it's nice we gear up and go for a walk. Dd walks w/us while we'd walk the dog. Our neighborhood is super hilly, so a 30 min walk w/ the boy on my back is a serious work out!
