Anyone who knows me, knows I love to ‘wear’ my babies. I wear them at home, at the mall, when I go for a walk, and even doing the groceries. Don’t know what I am talking about? I am talking about Babywearing!
“Babywearing is the practice of wearing or carrying a baby or child in a sling or other form of carrier.” -Wikipedia.
I was introduced to Babywearing by a good friend, and instantly fell in love. I would always offer to ‘wear’ her baby when we were out and about. I loved the feeling of have the baby so close, snuggled in, while still being able to push my Godson’s stroller, or carry our grocery bags. I started buying everyone I knew ring slings for their baby showers.
Before my first son was even born, I had started putting together my collection. First, a custom made ring sling in a tattoo styled fabric. Second, a Baby Hawk mei tai carrier – Pictured above, when Baby H met his Papa for the first time (He was in China for the Olympics when he was born). I am really excited to be trying out some new baby carriers soon, that I will be reviewing for Tamara at (Check out her Babywearing project blog here: http://daisydays.ca/blog/?category_name=babywearing).
There are many benefits to Babywearing, my favorite being the bond that is created from mom and baby being so close. I am so excited to be able to offer Babywearing workshops in our upcoming Mommy Connections classes, and sharing my love for it with all the new moms I come in contact with.
