You sick of the gear-heavy, alienating inconvenience of the stroller/swing/playpen combo that 150+ years of Anglocentric parenting culture foists on us all, and you want to try some of that practical, bonding-friendly, elemental goodness of wearing your baby instead?
Fine, just make sure you don't exoticize or fetishize the cultures where babywearing is the only option most folks have. Because if you do, I know at least one mami who will set you straight.
I guess Queens Nuyoricans and the indigenous women in the Guatemalan fair trade co-op who made your sling are tight like that. Besides, a white guy wearing a mei tai looks about as incongruous as Steven Seagall wearing a saffron robe. Just think about it.
