Last week was International Babywearing Week. I was extremely busy, but I still think it deserves a blog post.
Babywearing has been my lifesaver in so many different ways. When Lovebug was six months old and cutting her first two top teeth, the only way she would nurse was upright in my mei tai. My guess is that it helped with the fluid in her ears. On her first plane ride, also at six months, wearing her helped her feel safe in crowded airports. She could smell me, feel my heart beat, and rest her head on my chest. Experts write about the fourth trimester, and the baby carrier is a great transition from womb to world.
I am the mama who is over the moon in love with her family and green living.
