Babywearing it Up!: About the Podaegi

Babywearing it Up!: About the Podaegi.

Natalie shares some great pictures and some first hand experience on making her podaegi from a tutorial that she found. Looks good and the kid seems comfy!

(PS, yes I know I’ve let this blog be stagnant – working on it!)

Children’s Podaegi

In the same way that little girls in western cultures have their teddy bears pushed around in mini strollers, little girls in Korea play with their wubbies in pint-sized podaegis.


Isn’t she cute?

I can’t translate this entire blog entry but the pictures are absolutely adorable. ADORABLE!

Howdy howdy from Podaegi.wordpress.com!

Howdy everyone.

My name is Min Jung Kim and I am a longtime blogger and first time mom.  I’ve been blogging for nearly 10 years and have only recently become a mother to a wonderful little girl named Amelia.  I’m still getting used to the idea of being a Mommy-Blogger though my baby is now nearly 8 months old and I blog and tweet about her pretty regularly.

I’ve recently become obsessed with Podaegi’s which are the traditional Korean baby carrier/wrap that I remember being carried in when I was little.

Podaegi, Poddaegi, Poddegi, Podegi, 포대기.

It’s pronounced Poh-Deh-Ggi.e)

Amelia’s nearly grown out of her front-carried Bjorn (a fine device, to be sure) but I find it still a little cumbersome and unweildy having her up front with her fingers grabbing at everything and her feet kicking at me.

A Podaegi is great in terms of handling and carrying children as they grow as a toddler and makes it great for walking about with each other.  Effectively it’s a very secure piggyback ride supported by a blanket.

Podaegi’s are so prevalent in Korea that they even make Podaegi’s for children to backstrap their teddybears and dolls in.

More info to come as I blog about all things Podaegi!
Hai!
