My favourite baby item from the beginning has been my ergobaby carrier. It was the one main baby item I didn’t get rid of when we had decided to stop having kids. But I still bought another one because I liked this teal colour. I used my ergo until my babies were no longer toddlers. I even carried my daughter when she was four on a hike one time because she got such a bad blister. I love walking everywhere I can and not having to stick to the sidewalks like you do with a stroller.
I saw these DIY drool pads that people had made for their carriers, and I didn’t think I’d ever use them. But I’ve had this lovely bird cloth since I went to Cannon Beach last summer and hadn’t found the right use for it. I noticed that it goes well with the ergo’s teal colour, and after washing the carrier because my four-month-old has been drooling all over it, I decided to make them. It was easy to whip these up in a couple hours. I did not use a pattern.
