Sakura Bloom Triathlon: Round Two

babywearing
Sakura Bloom linen Essential in berry-spice

Welcome to the second stage of the Sakura Bloom Triathlon! We hope that you are already enjoying your double-layer linen Essential sling. The double layer of linen creates even more support and comfort for you and your baby, and is one of our customer favorites.

Your challenge with this sling is the photo challenge. We're not just looking for pretty smiles (although we do love those!) but photos that capture the joy of carrying your child in a sling.

You can submit your entry via email and/or a post on your blog by November 18.

Best of luck with the challenge and we look forward to seeing your photos!

-Lynne, Sakura Bloom

I love babywearing photos, so if you are not a part of the Triathlon but would like to play along with this challenge, leave a link to your favorite babywearing photo in the comments below.

I'll choose my favorite and post it when we announce the Round Two winner after November 18!

  8. I love this picture of you and sweet Ivy.
    I love these ones that were taken of me and my girls last month. The one with all 3 of us, I'm wearing Libby with Amelia on my back. I love how versatile slings are and how much my children love being worn.

    The link above is my favorite because its not me..Its my stepdad, AKA Papa. He loves carring my son around on his back. This picture was taken in Florida this past spring break...He went into the bathroom, forgetting he was carring on the back and felt my son "rub his back" as he was using the bathroom. He said it freaked him out until he remembered my son was there!

    Beautiful picture of you and Ivy

  40. I can't possibly pick my favorite. As I was looking through my folders, I realized I almost have at least 1 babywearing picture for every month.

  45. Oh my goodness, I have so many babywearing photos that I love so much, but I guess this one is my favorite.

    It was taken at the moment where I realized I was the true comfort to Emma. I was going through a hard time with post-partum and being a first-time mother, and she was crying a lot. I finally dug this fleece Peanut Shell out of her baby things and popped her into it. I wasn't even sure if I was doing it right, but within seconds, she was like this.

    And I knew everything would be okay.
