First off, sorry if this is in the wrong area, I couldn't for the life of me figure out where this should go (feel free to move it, powers-that-be)! I recently bought a new baby carrier (an Ergo), and I noticed they sold little pads for the straps for the baby to suck on. Brilliant! Except... $14? Bah! Never mind that this is like 1/10th of the price of the carrier, but somehow I was outraged enough to make some myself!

Here they are strapped to the carrier... The ribbon is to attach toys to. I wanted to put a D ring on it but I didn't have one handy.



I just used some cotton fabric I had (it was quilting fabric, I have no idea if that makes a difference) with a piece of a hand towel in the middle plus some velcro.  They're reversible!



If you ever get a carrier for yourself I highly recommend pads. Babies LOVE to suck on the straps. My old carrier's straps got totally stained by apparently (gross, sorry) him spitting up a little sweet potato on it and then mashing it in. I swear though that's not why I got a new one-- I had a mei-tai style carrier which was great except my baby is enormous and the back position really wasn't giving me enough support to be comfortable. The Ergo works great though!

These look so nice and would work great on the car seat straps too.  I love the loop for attaching toys, I immediately thought of the toys that come with a "C" shaped ring for hanging them off things.

those are a great idea!  I'm going to have to show my baby wearing friend! (I wear mine too, but can't justify the price of one of the Ergo, so I stick with a giant piece of fabric as a wrap carrier Smiley )
