Babywearing Twins for the Non-Babywearing Mom

I love babywearing, but I’m not really a babywearer. See, I tend to subscribe to the MacGyver school of parenting. A little gum, a little duct tape, a couple bobby pins, whatever you got on you to get the job done. As a “MacGyver Parent,” I’m a little vegan, a little carnivorous, a little homemade,… Read More

Wearing A Toddler On Your Back In A Baby Carrier

When I had my first child, we chose the ErgoBaby carrier because of it’s comfort and the fact that baby could be worn on our front, our back and our hip. By the time my second baby was born, I knew I needed more- I now had a two year old and a newborn. I… Read More

When I saw the Galaxy Grey ERGObaby baby carrier a couple of weeks ago during the giveaway for our YouTube Celebration, I fell in love.

Let the babies wear their babies! That’s what we say around here! One of my favorite things as a mama is to see my kids mimic me. My 1 year old loves to “help” unload the dishwasher and dryer. My 3 year old nurses her stuffed animals and wears them around the house. My children… Read More

I must admit…I’ve never been much of a babywearer with either of my first two kids. With the first one, I much preferred to hold her in my arms then wear her on my chest…simply because I could. With the second one, he just got so big so fast that it was just too uncomfortable… Read More

Happy International Babywearing Week!

Before I was a mom the word babywearing meant absolutely nothing to me. In fact it was more of a…why would anyone in their right mind want to do that? However, two kids later and a third on the way, I have now been educated that babywearing is not only “cool” and extremely necessary…it can… Read More
