You can make a No-Sew Baby Wrap with 4-5 yards of knit fabric. Do not try to sew two pieces together or your wrap will be weak where you need it strong - in the middle. Useful links:

Wearing a baby is also great for sitting activities when you need two free hands (like blogging, crocheting, hugging, and reading to older kids). I can even nurse with my baby wrapped! Below is a picture of my husband wearing Avi while doing the dishes. He was very skeptical at first, but now he loves to wear our baby. And they keep each other warm!
