Baby wearing with an ostomy

I have two young kids, both of which have been fairly clingy. Basically, they like to held All. The. Time. So what’s a mom to do when her kids don’t like to be set down? Wear those babies! But since most carriers cover your front torso, it can bring up concerns of whether or not it’s possible with an ostomy. And since I desperately needed the use of my hands from time to time, I am thankful that I found ways to make baby wearing with my ostomy possible. Of course some carriers are easier to use than others, and some may require adjustments while others do not. This video shows the carriers I have used and had success wearing with both of my kids. 

Links to carriers used:

This is not a sponsored post and I do not receive anything if you decide to purchase one of these product. I do not necessarily recommend these carriers over any others, but they are good options to consider. These carriers are simply the ones I used with my kids based on research and recommendations and I have included links to the products purely for reference. This list is not exhaustive of all styles or brands suitable for using with an ostomy. If you are interested in baby wearing with an ostomy, I encourage you to try out different options to figure out what works best for you!

Sit down, stay a while. I'd love to hear from you.
