As our culture redefines what is means to be a dad, there are certain iconic images that represent the caring, competent, and confident 21st century American father. For me, I smile every time I see a Dad walking down the street “wearing” his baby proudly, so we were happy to have Britax sponsor a recent New Dad Boot Camp and give away their Baby Carriers to three lucky expecting dads.
During the Boot Camp, we discussed the benefits of using a baby carrier, also known as “wearing your baby.” Veteran dads who wear babies talked about how easy it is to get around the city using a carrier rather than a stroller. We also talked about the closeness that dad and baby feel when fathers wear babies using the carrier. After a brief break to allow an expecting dad the opportunity to experience his first diaper change, I demonstrated how to put on and adjust the Britax Carrier and three very happy dads got to take one home!
Special thanks to Britax for sponsoring New Dad Boot Camp!
