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.

    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!)
