Every newbie asks it. "Why are wraps and carriers so expensive"?
In good babywearing groups, you'll get an actual answer. In bitchy groups, you'll get told "No questions about pricing" or "free market capitalisim" and possibly get deleted if you push for an actual answer. (Sorry Americans but groups that have a high percentage of US citizens tend to fall into the later)
So why are all the baby carriers so expensive?
Lets face it, kids are expensive. But here's a little secret the marketing department at Fisher Price don't want you to know; most baby stuff is completly unnecessary. Even those things that are so imbedded into our collective subconcious that just the word baby make you think of them.
There are however a few parenting philosophies that can save you an awful lot of money, as well as being just generally awesome.
