We Just Can't Get Enough Of Babywearing
The little miss, modeling the outward facing front cross carry in our swank cuddlywrap. She LOVES being worn like this and examining the world.
Please enjoy some fantastic babywearing links that I have come across lately:
♥ A beautiful sideshow of babywearing in indigenous cultures. We still get stared at when I wear Gretchen downtown & I rarely see other mama's wearing their babes. When I do see babywearers it's always a Bjorn. I'm SURE there are more wrap mamas out there -- I just have to find them! Also, if someone mistakes Gretchen for a puppy one more time I may just scream.
♥ PhD in Parenting shows us how she nurses in a ring sling. I love being able to wear Gretchen & feed her at the same time. Eating on the run & hands free is great.
♥ Two great communities that I have used for wearing ideas & instructional videos are The Baby Wearer & Wear Your Baby. It's really fun to try all of the different ways that you can wear your babes. Learn a new position today -- you little one might love it!
♥ A month of babywearing in photos from Carry Me, Mama. This mother uses all sorts of slings in different positions. There are some really fantastic examples here.
♥ These mama's get to wear their babes at work! How fabulous!
♥ Tales from a babywearing ambassador.
If you have any favourite babywearing links, photos or stories, please pass them on! Merci, merci!
Enjoy the babywearing love, mes amis.
