I became a mom almost 3 months ago and I'm not sure I would get much of anything done without my baby wrap. She loves being in the wrap and it got me through her first month of life especially, she was so unhappy being anywhere but in our arms. I received 2 as shower gifts and was so grateful. If I hadn't I was prepared to sew one because of the good things I had heard about them from other moms. There are also benefits to baby wearing check out this list.
I have another popular baby carrier but the weight it puts on my shoulders makes them tired and sore in a very short time, baby and I are so much more comfy in the wrap. Daddy even wears her :)
