Baby Wearing; Learning

BabyWearing3.jpg

My good friend Kate is obsessed with baby wearing and she is really good at it too! I hope to get better at it. It's just hard right now being pregnant to wear my almost 20 pound baby boy. However, I am doing my best to observe and learn as much as I can so that I will be better once I'm not pregnant. Kate can even wrap up both her baby (Gus) and Peter at the same time! There is a ton to learn about different wraps and different ways to wrap. I used to think my only option was my Moby or my Ergo but really there is so much more to choose from. If you're interested check out youtube (WrappingRachel). There are a lot of mommas out there who have made some awesome tutorial videos. Also, when you first start wrapping I would practice a few times with a doll or stuffed animal. Then when you try it with your baby for the first time make sure you have a spotter.

Anyway... a few weeks back Kate took my to a wrapping meeting at a local baby boutique. Turns out Tucson has a group of moms who love to get together and wrap! They had a lot of different wraps and slings for everyone to try. The leaders of the group were generously giving tutorials and answering questions. It was awesome! Really can't wait until I can wrap with the best of them!
