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!)

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog

Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
