BOULDER, Colo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Due in part to the hit movie The Hangover, dads have gone gaga for wearing their babies.

Last summer’s smash comedy has made a huge mark on pop culture, specifically in the baby carrier business.

In the movie, Zach Galifianakis famously totes around a baby named Carlos in a Baby Bjorn, and now more dads are following suit.

According to Seth Murray, president of bellebabycarriers.com, it’s fair to say that The Hangover has influenced younger dads to use special front carriers for their little ones.

His own Belle Baby Carriers have seen a spike in sales since the movie came out last year and the trend shows no sign of slowing.

Murray says today’s new generation of fathers are more hip to “babywearing” and its benefits.

Modern dads feel like they’re contributing more to parenting by wearing their tots, while babies feel more relaxed and fall asleep faster being that close to Daddy’s heartbeat.
