International Babywearing Week

International Babywearing Week is November 12-18 . WOO HOO! You know I have been busy because it took 'til Friday for me to get around to this post. Steph at Adventures in Babywearing- who seriously rocks- is having a contest to win a Pop Nest Sling or a Sparrow Hatchling Sling from from Nonny and Boo! Make sure to check out her blog for details!

Why I love to wear my baby?
I love babywearing for so many reasons but most of all because it keeps my little E close to my heart. It breaks my heart that so many mom's are hesitant to baby wear because it really is an amazing experience!
Do I have a favorite carrier?
I think it changes week to week or day to day. I really love all types of carriers. I love slings, Mai Tais, and wraps the best. The Bundleboo is an amazing wrap and very easy to use!
Babywearing tips and hints?
Don't be afraid to try baby wearing and experiment to find the carrier that works best for you! Don't let a SPOC intimidate you. Wear your baby proudly and encourage other mommas to wear their babies too. The best way to lead is by example!
and just some of my favorite babywearing pics!

The pictures are beautiful. I had a sling for baby Izzy, but I only used it when he was tiny. After he was about three months old, it hurt my back to carry him in it.

What beautiful babywearing pictures!

Great pics! I think some parents are hestitant to try babywearing because it appears "crunchy." But to me, it just feels right to keep my little one close to me. Even though she's not so little anymore!

I love the pictures! Your blue wrap is just gorgeous and I love the little yellow head band!!

I'm trying to find an ergo on ebay right now-I decided I'd get an ergo instead of the baby hawk because of the attachable backpack-that looked so nice for hiking or going to the park with the kids-but so far I haven't found any deals. I'm excited to try a back carry though!

I love the carriers. The pictures are very cute!

Lauren said...

CUTEEE!!! I love that you have such a variety like I do! My other non-babywearing friends make fun of me that I always have carrier to match my outfit! :)

Andrea said...

I love that first picture of you and Eliza...and the one where it looks like you're in a desert! ;) And yep...babywearing rocks, and no matter how hard I try, I just CANNOT figure out why people refuse to you said, it is amazing.
