We’ve gathered more moments when Hike it Baby members have thought: You Know You Are a HiB Hiker When… We all can relate! See some of those moments here:
You travel past a park or really cool landmark and think to yourself it would be great to lead a hike it baby there. Just such a beautiful place you need to share it with others.
Victoria Hartmann – Milwaukee WI
You are going down a trail and someone passing the group says, “Wow that’s a lot of babies!”
Michelle Killmon – Westminster, Colorado
Every time I put on the baby carrier, the dog runs to sit by her leash with her tail sweeping the floor. And the baby starts giggling like a maniac. Hiking around our town puts us all in a good mood!
M.J. Lanum – Merrimack Valley
You look forward to strapping your baby on and walking into the woods!
Sarah Hammer – Cincinnati
You are carrying a yelling, protesting toddler under your arm, and you feel like you are ruining the Nature experience for anyone else hiking within a 1/4 mile of you.
Jenn Haunold – Corvallis
You come across another baby wearing momma and your first question is “Do you know about Hike it baby?” and start fishing in your bag for a business card as you start your longer spiel about how awesome it is to be outside with our littles.
Heather Feil – Anchorage
When your toddler makes sand, mud or dirt angels
Jessica – Portland
I consider the first time my daughter peed in the woods on a Hike it Baby hike to be a milestone.
Jessa McCauley – Evansville
When your 8 month old decides to walk (yes walk!!!) towards the framed carrier and tries to climb in! It’s the only thing she walks towards, not mom or dad only the carrier…I think we created a hiking monster!!
Lauren Barthelemy – Portland
Your toddler sees a baby wearing mom in a store and starts chanting “hike it baby!”. Great way to recruit new members!
Madelyn Barranco – Racine, Wisconsin
Your 2 yr old is shivering with fever but still asks to go outside!
Christel – Spearfish
You’re planning out the next days hikes to hit a mileage goal while up in the middle of the night feeding your little one!
Jennifer Simmons – HIB Fredericksburg
You reschedule your daughter’s 6 month check up so you don’t miss a hike!
