Safe Babywearing Celebration

There are few things I get as passionate about as discussing as parenting. I love being a mama. I love talking about birth, children, parenting, and the nuances of how-we-do-it-around-here.

One aspect of being a parent that has been nothing short of an absolute joy is my choice to wear my babies. Babywearing is so simple, and yet so powerful. It has changed my life.


Only recently has Lupine truly moved out of arms and requested that I pick up a stroller to cruise her around town in. I obliged, and we're happy to roll around on our errands now, but truth be told I miss the closeness of her on my back or chest, snuggled in close as we talk and connect throughout our travels.


There has been some unfortunate news about babywearing safety recently. The truth remains that babywearing is an ancient, traditional parenting practice – like breastfeeding and cosleeping. And like cosleeping when done properly baby wearing is inherently safe.

To help us refocus on the connection, health, joy, and ease that comes from wearing our little ones, I am hosting a Safe Babywearing Celebration in April (April 12 – 16). We'll discuss safe babywearing, carriers, different positions/holds, share stories, and I'll host plenty of babywearing and baby carrier giveaways. The week will be sponsored by some wonderful folks donating their carriers and resources (including Ergo, Moby Wrap, and Tummy 2 Tummy with more coming on board everyday).

Bring all of your friends. I can hardly wait!

Edited: Baby K'tan and Kangaroo Korner are now on board as well. Thanks to all sponsors.
