Babywearing has a lot to do with why I even started blogging (well, uh, it's the name of my blog.) But really- when I was expecting Gray a few years ago, I already knew I'd be an extended breastfeeder and co-sleeper, but I had never "worn" my babies. I had a sling before he was born and couldn't wait to wear him. I can not wait to wear this next baby, keeping him or her close to me.
Just a few weeks ago I started the babywearing bloggers blogroll and already we have almost 70 bloggers signed up... that's a lot of babywearing! I love it!
