Today I visited a dear friend at her home for a play date with our kiddos. She is a very experienced babywearer and has helped me tremendously in this department. Every new carrier that I try is through her. She is so knowledgeable in this area that she started a babywearing group for our county. Her commitment to teaching others this art is commendable.
Well, today while at her house she brought out a Yamo carrier from Israel. Her mother actually brought it to her from a visit to Israel. I have to say, it was quite comfortable. It is a lot like the Pikkolo carrier that I received for Christmas. It takes a little tweaking to figure out a new carrier and my friend was right there offering the support and teaching that I needed. I tried doing a front carry as well as a back carry. Both were quite comfy. It was a great experience. The Yamo was very comfortable for me and it must have been for my little boy because he promptly fell asleep and took quite a great nap while sleeping on my back in the Yamo.
