A Guest Post from Denina at Little D’s Baby Carriers:
Happy International Babywearing Week! At Little D’s Baby Carriers we are thrilled to celebrate this week with Bebo Mia. We are offering a 10% discount to everyone who posts a photo of themselves babywearing on the Bebo Mia Facebook Page! We will also be attending a babywearing walk in High Park to celebrate with other Toronto BW-ing mamas on Saturday October 13 at 10:30 am (meet us at High Park subway station by the collector’s booth).
I don’t know about you, but I fell in love with babywearing after I wore my first stretchy wrap. I have used SSC (soft shell carriers) and ring slings, but nothing is as cozy as the stretchy wrap. If you are thinking about babywearing, or if you have tried it but had a poor experience and aren’t sure what to do next, then I recommend trying a stretchy wrap.
The stretchy wrap is excellent for newborn babies and recommended specifically for preemies. If you already have a Little D’s stretchy wrap, you can get good use from it until your baby is about 25 lbs (we have tested it for safety up to 35 lbs, but by then you will probably find it uncomfortable to carry your babe on your front). Stretchy wraps are practical because they are one size fits all with no need to adjust straps and buckles.
Once you’ve tied one on a couple of times, stretchy wraps are quick and easy to use. They also wash and travel well – just roll it up and put in in your diaper bag! In fact, I have found that men and women of all different shapes and sizes enjoy the feeling of the stretchy wrap and never complain of discomfort or back pain, so I think it’s a perfect way to start your babywearing career. Stretchy wraps also make excellent gifts for expecting mothers!
What was that? You are no longer expanding your family, and your children have already outgrown your old stretchy, but miss its softness and warm comfort? Don’t worry! We have created 6 great no-sew craft projects for you to up-cycle your old stretchy into new and fabulous accessories that you can continue to love for years to come!
Over the next 6 weeks, Little D’s will be releasing a 6-part video series with ultra-cool, super easy, no-sew craft projects you can do with your old stretchy wrap. and you are one of the first people to hear about it. So, to celebrate International Babywearing Week, we are releasing Part 1: The hobo infinity rag scarf, right now for every bebo mia subscriber to enjoy!
