I wear my babies to keep them safe, content, and close to my heart...
Slings and wraps fast become their favorite spots. From this height they can see and interact with the world while staying safely tucked in with Mama.
I wore Levi so he could explore the world. I wore him to comfort him when he was sick or in a foul mood. I wore him just because we loved being close. I wore him so that his sweet head was always within kissing distance...soft baby hair is like a magnet for my lips.
I wear Sophia for the same reasons with a newly added benefit...she's safe up here from all that exuberant brotherly love. Levi's "I wuv her!" is often accompanied by an attempt to grab her, pinch her cute toes, or "kiss her to pieces" because...ahem...that's exactly what his mama does.
Oh, and, the fact that I can knit and still keep an eye on two kiddos....well, now that's just priceless. ;)
In light of the CPSC's recent attacks on ALL types of baby carriers, Steph from Adventures in Babywearing is encouraging mamas to answer the BCIA's call to action by posting our babywearing photos, stories, etc. Really, what babywearing mama would turn down the opportunity to post cute pics of her cozily wrapped up kiddos? And, as if that's not enough incentive Steph's also giving away a Sakura Bloom sling. So, come join us!
