I'm absolutely delighted to be guest posting at Marvelous Kiddo today!
And it's all about Babywearing In Autumn.
(please stop by and say hi.)
Just a little bit ago I was folding my really old mei tai and sling I used to wear with Gray all the time thinking that:
1) I can never part with these
2) Someday I will photograph Grayson wearing his baby in one of these slings. I just know!
3) Do you think I'll still have a blog then so I can post the photo of my grandchild in the sling?
4) I sure hope so.
I'm actually off to a babywearing gathering at my local library today. I am bringing my big stash of slings and carriers to demonstrate and can't wait to meet some new babywearing mamas. If they let me, I hope to take a bunch of pictures of them and their babies!
One last thing- a super helpful babywearing tip that I forget to mention because it has nothing to do with carriers or how you wear them: bounce and walk.
Once you have your baby all wrapped up or slung or tied up or buckled, get moving. Bounce them a little, walk around, they will get comfy and adjusted and will likely fall right to sleep. If you just stand there looking in the mirror or looking at them thinking they just hate this thing, they just might hate it or all they'll want to do is try to eat.
So, bounce and walk.
