international babywearing week, 8-14th Oct 2012

What’s not to love about wearing your baby close to you while leaving you hands free?  I’ve enjoyed carrying E in a Moby wrap from a week old and continue to do so at 8.5 months for short bursts to the shops or park (he’s rather heavy now but tie it right and it’s a great back reliever to the usual mum position of sat on one hip).  Just this week we attended a baby sign group where we went for a toddle with babies in slings to point to and sign buses and lorries, birds and trees.  I’m a firm believer that wearing your baby close helps little ones feel happy, secure and confident.  And boy do they nap well.

E in sling L-R clockwise:  aged 21 days, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months old

    Oh my – isn’t he just adorable.

    I loved doing this with all mine – from front to back before they got too big.

    I’m a keen babywearer too! I use a mei tai for longer stretches like walks in the country and a ring-sling for short trips out. Any excuse for extra cuddles!

    cripes Kate, that’s some pretty massive news I missed! Welcome back to Blighty and enjoy those cuddles as long as you can. My little one is loving crawling and climbing so much now I have to practically wrestle him down for a cuddle! (which he finds hilarious of course!)

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
