I’ll Always Love the Ergo

An ErgoBaby carrier was not the first carrier I had. It isn’t even my favorite out of all of the many that have passed through here. Yet still, it holds a very special place in my heart. I am quick to recommend them, and to defend them against the barrage of Tula recommendations that accompanies […]

Review: BB Tai Stands the Test of Time

Babylonia, the makers of the BB Tai, are veterans in the baby carrier industry. This Belgium brand has been around for 16 years, making quality woven wraps, ring slings, stretchies, and Meh Dai’s. They recently sent me a BB Tai (their version of a Wrap Conversion Meh Dai) to review, and honestly both my partner […]

Is It Too Hot to Babywear?

As the temperature creeps up around 90 here in Northern California, I can’t help feel for those in even hotter climates right now. My sympathy especially to those in late stages of pregnancy or nursing a newborn all day. My Gemini daughter was born right in the middle of June back in 2012, and I […]

Review: Wrap Conversion Fly Tai – for the Win!

As always, the folks at 5 Minute recess sent me something totally awesome and budget friendly to review. This time it was one of Fidella’s new Wrap Conversion Meh Dai’s, called the FlyTai. I ended up liking the tester so much that I ordered a few for our local carrier Learning Library. Besides fitting nicely […]

What is Babywearing?

When I tell people that I am a Babywearing Educator, more often than not I get a very puzzled response. “Baby – what?” they ask. “Babywearing”. I am sure that the first image that comes to mind for most is a baby hanging in a front pack on their dad’s chest, a la The Hangover. […]

How to Choose a Baby Carrier

Help! I need a baby carrier! Yes, yes you most definitely do. How did you make it this long without one? Never mind, you’re here now. Let me assure you that no matter your preferred parenting philosophy… this will be one of the best decisions you can make as a caregiver to a child. Babywearing […]

Daddies, Wear Your Babies

(Partners, caregivers, and grandparents too!) There are a lot of useless products out there marketed towards babies and new parents. Amidst the chaos of gadgets & gizmos promising you to watch your children for you, turn your child into a mini software engineer, train your children to sleep like adults, and to otherwise make parenting […]

We Wear Babies

What started out as a simple parenting tool, has become a bit of an… um… obsession? It all began with the Moby wrap. I had come across one at Target when I did my baby registry, so I went ahead and asked for one. I didn’t really know anyone who “wore” their baby, but I […]
