Sol - Love in Motion - Babywearing Photography

I was hoping to photograph Prachi from the moment I decided to start this Wrapsody project. When I first moved to this area she gave me the most encouraging advice on our local babywearing Facebook group. I was still learning back carries in my hybrid-stretch, not very good at tightening, and losing hope that I'd ever get a high back carry in my beloved wrap. She shared that she carried her toddler very snugly in her own stretch-hybrid, and that I could too, just be sure to tighten as I go. Ever since I read her enheartening words, I was filled with the confidence I needed to keep at it. Thank you, Prachi.

How did you first get into babywearing? I researched lots of different ways to babywear and came across a Moby. Then I went to my first La Leche League meeting in July 2012 and met Jade {our local babywearing group leader} who not only taught me to wear the Moby but also invited me into the babywearing group. It saved my sanity because my son needed me to be close to him and I didnt want to hold him all the time. I was also given a ring sling as a present for my baby shower from a friend.

What does babywearing mean to you? Keeping your child close.  Meeting their needs - and yours. Being in sync with your child. Easy ability to get work done but still cuddling your baby.

What aspects of Wrapsody wraps do you like the most? I love the feel of it. I love how its like wrapping with a t shirt. I love the supportiveness of it where I can wear my almost 3 year old and yet it is still so snug and soft and comfortable for a new squish. It's my go to reccomendation for anyone looking to get an affordable squish {newborn} wrap. Its less than $100 and especially with the stretch it can be worn from birth to as long as you can bear the weight.
