What is Babywearing?

Wear Your Babies

Babywearing simply means carrying your baby or toddler in a sling wrap or other type of carrier.

My son Aiden is almost 7 months old and I have enjoyed the convenience of Babywearing with him. I am an everyday mom trying to maintain a household filled with two very active rough and tumble boys ages 4 and 7 and a 6 soon to be 7 month old. The reality was that I did not have enough hands.. That is where babywearing has save me . I was never one to tug around a car seat or push my kids away from me in a stroller. I always preferred to hold the boys close to me.. I am surprised that I was not aware of the benefits of babywearing or the options and variety of carriers with Seamus and Jacob.

I started out looking for a Moby wrap I had heard so many great things about them, I went to the only store on our island that Sells the Moby and was very surprised at how much time they gave to me in helping me select the Moby, they wrapped themselves, and then wrapped me. I was encouraged to PRACTICE!! and I did. I have to admit I was intimidated at first with the massive amount of fabric. Once you are comfortable with the types of holds and how to wrap it is not an issue.

Take the time and get comfy with your carrier of choice, Get in front of a mirror and get wrapping or slinging.
