Whether it’s shopping, baking or handicrafts, children just love to imitate their parents.
And when parents carry their babies, children want to carry, too. Like the two kids of my colleague, who both carried their dolls and teddy bears in a sling. In next to no time, these slings could be improvised from old scarfs.

In this picture, the proud doll mum is only two years old and is still carried in a manduca herself quite often. Of course,
also on the back!

My colleague’s son was also enthusiastic about carrying his soft toys. Not surprising at all, because his daddy is a babywearer, too – and he is always a good role model.
